Ryan Gosling has admitted he's "uncomfortable" with his pin-up status.
The Gangster Squad star, who is dating actress Eva Mendes, revealed he struggles to see himself as a sex symbol, reported The Metro.
"I'm as uncomfortable with it as I am talking about it," said the 32-year-old.
He continued: "I know from just being a guy and looking at a billboard and you're like, 'That guy's not a sex symbol. They're trying to sell that on us? No way! That's never gonna stick.' And then suddenly he's like a huge deal and you can't believe it. I used to hate on those guys and now I am one."
And it seems the Drive star doesn't think he should have clinched the sexiest title anyway.
"You show me someone who really thinks that and I'll show you a liar," he said.
