There are many reasons I love the movie Crazy.Stupid.Love, the main two being the insanely cute "I wish they were actually dating" couple featured above. Emma Stone isn't the girl you love to hate, she's the girl you wish was your best friend, in hopes that some of her uncanny, unrehearsed awesomness would rub off on you. And then there's Ryan Gosling. Oh Ryan, you must have made a deal with the devil, because I don't know a single person on this planet, male or female, who wouldn't marry you. Leave Eva.... ("I tweeted at you everyday for a year". Kidding, I didn't actually, but I would).
Aside from the wonders that are Emma and Ryan, I love Crazy.Stupid.Love for its premise, be whatever you are to the fullest, even when it seems crazy and stupid. Real love, real emotions the kind that get you torn up in knots, acting like a wild person, and driving to your crush's house at 2 in the morning asking him to kiss you (true story, I did this) is unabashed, it feels no embarrassment. It is poised, disconcerted.
After twenty-three years I've found that the quickest path to unhappiness is comparison and inauthenticity.
