Justin Bieber may have a new style muse: Ryan Gosling à la his 2012 indie movie The Place Beyond the Pines. On Tuesday, Bieber randomly posted two Instagram movie stills of Gosling, both captioned with, "What a beast."
In the first photo, a heavily tattooed Gosling is casually hanging out by his motorcycle, and in the second, Gosling is sitting on a stoop and feeding his character's child. In the movie, Gosling plays Luke, a bad boy trope who has a motorcycle, newborn baby and knack for robbing banks to support said baby.
So when those close to the Biebs claim that his new aesthetic is a result of finding God, do they really just mean Gosling?
The likeness between Bieber's recent look and Gosling's character wasn't lost on Twitter users. User @codyckennedy tweeted that the two were "interchangeable;" @GrayKal said Bieber was "stealing" Gosling's look.
