The hunk parade
scheduled for Sunday night's Golden Globes
show will be missing one hunk: Ryan Gosling
Why? The uber-hot
leading man – who also happens to be a double nominee
, for the comedy Crazy, Stupid Love
and the drama Ides of March
– has a previous commitment.
His rep tells PEOPLE that "he's working out of the country."
The actor – who's currently dating Eva Mendes
– appears to be shooting Only God Forgives
, a mixed martial arts movie helmed by Drive
director Nicolas Winding Refn and set in Bangkok.
