>> some are happy. some won't ever be happy. channing tatum , ryan gosling . we put this question on our website last night, and our twitter feed was completely overwhelmed. this is the tweet that started it all. e.l. james, the author, okay, girls and boys , hold on to your hats. it's about to get serious. ian sommer holder and matt bolder almost look like the same person, but they are not. they overwhelmingly got the most tweets. so bummed about this, but i love henry kavl.
