Ryan Gosling Bonded With Peter O'Toole Over Losing at the Oscars (VIDEO)

Ryan Gosling, 'Late Show with David Letterman'Ryan Gosling was only two years into his mainstream Hollywood career when he earned his first Oscar nomination for 'Half Nelson' in 2006. He was still a young actor, so the night was probably a whirlwind of excitement and emotion. But he remembers Peter O'Toole, he said on 'Late Show' (Weeknights, 11:37PM ET on CBS).

Gosling had attended with his sister, and apparently O'Toole found her appealing. "Come to me my beauty," he said, according to Gosling, with his arms extended.

After it went on longer than Gosling was comfortable with, he stood up to the screen legend on behalf of his sister, saying, "Peter. Big fan. You're a legend. But you gotta get your hand off my sister."

But O'Toole managed to win him over with a very sweet and silly gesture. Apparently, the Oscars throw Oscar-shaped confetti. So O'Toole got a piece of this and presented it to Gosling.

"I'd like to present you with your Oscar," he said, according to Gosling, and then they each toasted their confetti Oscars in lieu of actual ones. So does that mean Gosling was cool then if O'Toole wanted to take his sister home that night?
