Ryan Gosling Finally Ate His Cereal In Honor Of The Man Who Created The Meme Ryan Gosling wont eat his cereal jpg

Do you remember the Vine series “Ryan Gosling Won’t Eat His Cereal”? It took the Internet by storm two years ago by combining two of the world’s favorite things — Ryan Gosling and food. Creator Ryan McHenry took clips from Gosling’s movies and added spoonfuls of cereal. Onscreen Gosling was just never really into eating it. The real Gosling, however, has finally put the spoon in his mouth to pay tribute to McHenry, who died of cancer over the weekend at the age of 27.

Yesterday on Twitter Gosling shared a Vine of himself pouring a bowl of corn flakes and digging in.

Gosling also shared a heartfelt message for McHenry’s loved ones during this difficult time.

McHenry had previously said he hoped Gosling would respond to the Vines, adding, “Even if it’s just him eating cereal.” While Gosling didn’t eat his cereal on camera until now, according to E! News he did interact with McHenry on Twitter and told him he actually loves cereal.

A JustGiving page has been set up in McHenry’s memory, with funds going towards Sarcoma UK. For two years, McHenry battled osteosarcoma, a rare form of cancer that is also, according to the donation page, “an under-funded and under-resourced area of medical research.” The page has already reached more than 50% of its goal.

It’s so nice to see that Gosling responded to the tragic news about McHenry, especially in the way he did. Our hearts go out to McHenry’s family and friends.
