Ryan Gosling waxwork arrives at Madame Tussauds: Tissue attendant could be hired to deal with hysterical fans
The Notebook and Drive actor will be immortalised at the London museum
Although the figurine is likely to cause hysteria among fans of the Drive and The Notebook actor, the tourist institution has not yet enlisted a tissue attendant to deal with tearful, overwhelmed visitors as they did when the One Direction waxworks were first introduced, a spokesperson has confirmed.
In June 2013, the museum was given an “emergency supply” of 150 boxes of tissues to wipe away the tears of hysterical teenage girls visiting wax replicas of the boyband.
Matthew Clarkson, Marketing manager for Madame Tussauds London said:
“One Direction are a phenomena and the attention for them in the attraction has certainly not died down, said Matthew Clarkson, marketing manager for Madame Tussauds London.
"It's hard to say if Ryan will receive the same attention although from early reactions we know he is VERY popular! The tissue attendant may well be called into action for the summer.”
The Oscar-nominated actor - also known as a universal object of female lust – will be inducted into the museum on 15 July for a ‘guest appearance’ lasting the British summer holidays before taking up a permanent residence at Madame Tussauds in Orlando, Florida.
Gosling will look his ‘drop dead gorgeous red carpet best’, wearing a blue tuxedo with satin collar, black patent shoes and red socks with sleeked back hair. He will also appear with an ‘enigmatic smile’.
The actor is also the subject of the popular Hey Girl meme, which was launched to encourage his fans through difficult days.
