The star of The Hangover told the Herald Sun that he and Drive star Ryan used to tease one another about People magazine's Sexiest Man Alive award during filming of The Place Beyond The Pines.
He said: "It was treacherous. We had 'Sexiest Man Alive' matches every lunchtime.
"Who walked most sexily, who ate lunch most sexily, who opened doors most sexily. He won every time."
But he said the title - which he won, to the chagrin of many Gosling fans - had not changed his life.
"No, I don't really think about it much because it's nothing to do with me, it's just a thing that [was] here one minute, gone the next.
"And it's not like I walk down the street and people yell at me, 'Here comes the Sexiest Man Alive!'"
