Actor's dog 'insists' on punk haircut

Friday, 22nd July 2011

Rather than wanting the latest dog toys, it has been revealed that one Hollywood pooch is more concerned with his appearance.

Hollywood star Ryan Gosling has said his pet dog gets a bit cranky if he does not have his hair styled in the way he likes.

Appearing on the US show Late Night with Jimmy Falcon with his dog George, the Blue Valentine actor told the audience how his four-legged friend is "more interesting" than he is.

Explaining the haircut, Gosling said: "He insists on it ... Ten years ago I shaved him a Mohawk, just for the summer, and then every time it started to grow out, he turned into a total jerk. And then I shaved it back and he turned into a nice guy again."

It is not unusual for the 30-year-old to take his canine companion to work with him. Earlier his year, Gosling took George to the set of his forthcoming film, The Ideas of March.
