WATCH: Ryan Gosling Could Not Stop Laughing During This ‘SNL’ Skit About Alien Abductions
The Big Short star hosted this week’s episode of SNL and broke character in almost all of his sketches. Of course, we’re not complaining because it was charming as hell. For most Hollywood stars, the biggest challenge in hosting the show is trying to get laughs. But for Gosling, the real challenge was trying to contain them.
He especially couldn’t contain himself in a skit called “Close Encounter” where he, Cecily Strong, and Kate McKinnon star as a trio of people discussing their recent alien abductions with government officials. He could not seem to keep it together as McKinnon told her crazy (and much more outlandish) stories. Even comedian, Aidy Bryant, who played one of the NSA representatives, fought back laughter throughout the sketch.
He’s not the first (and probably won’t be the last) celeb to break on SNL. But for the actor, he broke a couple of other times during Saturday night’s (Dec. 5, 2015) episode. Either way the Canadian crooner looks great when he gets a case of the giggles. Watch below.
