Ryan Gosling, Puppetmaster

Ryan Gosling is the star of an eccentric new photo-shoot by photographer Hama Sanders.

In the pics, Gosling poses and cuddles with a friendly pooch.

On the less-cuddly side of things, Gosling also shares the camera with what has to be the creepiest-looking puppet since Chucky began chasing children around with a butcher knife.

Does that puppet have a pig’s snout? Use the ZOOM feature to check it out. *shiver*

The clean-shaven Ryan is one of the most talented actors working today, and this shoot captures his individuality handily.

He just needs to suggest that the art director leave the terrifying props out the next time.
