Scottish filmmaker Ryan McHenry gained his share of attention for his amusing Vine series “Ryan Gosling Won’t Eat His Cereal.” McHenry died this week from osteosarcoma, and Gosling gave a fitting tribute.
The “Ryan Gosling Won’t Eat His Cereal” videos were taken from select Gosling moments (from past movies or interviews) wherein the actor appeared a bit introspective and brooding. When a random spoon filled with cereal enters the frame, comedy ensues.
McHenry’s goal was to get Gosling to admit that he finally actually liked eating cereal. Last night, the actor released the following Vine:
My heart goes out to all of Ryan McHenry’s family and friends. Feel very lucky to have been apart of his life in some small way.

“Ryan McHenry, much loved filmmaker and creator of Ryan Gosling Won’t Eat His Cereal recently passed away after a two year battle with osteosarcoma. His strength, humour and perseverance were an inspiration to millions.
While he was with us, he always spoke about raising money for Sarcoma UK because this rare form of cancer is an under-funded and under-resourced area of medical research.
His family and friends can think of nothing more appropriate to honour Ryan’s life than by making a positive impact on the lives of others suffering from this disease.”
