After starring in three films together, Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling are right up there with Kate Winslet and Leonardo DiCaprio as one of our favorite friend pairings in Hollywood. They鈥檙e great on screen, of course, but it鈥檚 their real-life bond that really gets us 鈥 they鈥檙e constantly talking each other up, even when they鈥檙e not working on anything together.

Case in point? During a Q&A at the Telluride Film Festival in Colorado, where La La Land director Damien Chazelle presented Stone with a medal to honor her prestigious career, the actress spoke about the close relationship she鈥檚 formed with Gosling over their three movies, La La Land, Gangster Squad, and Crazy, Stupid, Love.

鈥淚 can鈥檛 even imagine what my life would be without Ryan,鈥 she said, according to Entertainment Tonight. 鈥淗e鈥檚 so special. It makes me emotional. He鈥檚 so talented but he鈥檚 such a great person to work with because he鈥檚 so collaborative and excited about the process. He鈥檚 taught me a lot about being really generous.鈥

Stone also gushed over Gosling, whom she calls a 鈥渄ear, wonderful friend,鈥 when she spoke to ET at La La Land鈥榮 Venice Film Festival premiere back in 2016. 鈥淗e鈥檚 so genuinely funny and such a good 鈥 I keep calling him teammate, but he is!鈥 she said at the time. 鈥淗e鈥檚 a good teammate. He鈥檚 really fun to act with and hang out with. 鈥 He鈥檚 the best!鈥

鈥淲e really hit it off,鈥 she added. 鈥淲e鈥檝e been just pals ever since. He is a wonderful person, but also an incredible actor. It鈥檚 a lucky thing that we get to do three [movies together]. It鈥檚 not bad.鈥

Gosling feels just as warmly about Stone. 鈥淓mma Stone is just, like, constantly opening Christmas presents,鈥 he told ET at the time. 鈥淭here鈥檚 nobody like her.鈥
