The 'Nice Guys' star, who has two daughters with actress Eva Mendes, also termed women the stronger sex.

"I've always liked women more. I was brought up by my mother and older sister. I found my way into dance class. My home life now is mostly women. They are better than us. They make me better," he noted.

Gosling added, "You can tell especially when you have daughters and you see their early stages, they are just leaps and bounds beyond boys immediately. Women are better than men, they are stronger; more evolved."

Speaking on being objectified, he said, "It's our time as men to be on the receiving end of the stick. When my mother and I walked to the grocery store, men would circle the block in cars. It was very scary, especially as a young boy. Very predatory; a hunt."
