Ryan Gosling Breaks Character While Kate McKinnon Manhandles Him On 'SNL'


Saturday Night Live” returned for its 43rd season this weekend with hostRyan Goslingand musical actJay-Z

And although there were plenty ofDonald Trump dissesand“Weekend Update” jabs, it was, of course, the one and onlyKate McKinnonwho stole the show. The recent Emmy winner and all-around comedic joy came inhot in the cold open, but it was the sketch “Another Close Encounter” about alien abduction that had everyone breaking character. 

McKinnon and Gosling returned for the follow-up to 2015′s “Close Encounter,” which originally saw Aidy Bryant, Bobby Moynihan and Gosling giggling uncontrollably as McKinnon went full out. The latest sketch was no different as she grabbed Gosling’s backside mid-segment, saying things like, “I don’t think they’ve ever seen a crack before,” and “They thought I had broken into two pieces and they were trying to put Humpty Dumpty back together again.” The actor ― as well as Bryant ― laughed throughout the moment as McKinnon punched, squeezed and put her face in his, um, cheeks. 

Let’s hope there’s a close encounter between these two more often.
