American actress Emma Stone has opened up about her special bond with Canadian actor Ryan Gosling. The 29-year-old actress has worked along the 37-year-old actor in three movies, including Gangster Squad, La La Land and Crazy, Stupid, Love.

During a Q&A session at the 2018 Telluride Film Festival on 2 September in Telluride, Colorado, Stone gushed about Gosling, and admitted she loves working him.

"I can't even imagine what my life would be without Ryan," she said, calling him her "dear, wonderful friend."

"He's so special. It makes me emotional. He's so talented but he's such a great person to work with because he's so collaborative and excited about the process. He's taught me a lot about being really generous," she added.

This is not the first time that Stone has sung praises for Eva Mendes's partner. Previously, The Easy A star shared that she thinks that Gosling is getting sick of her. She told E! News, "He has a restraining order against me now."

Stone added with a laugh, "I'm just going to have to stay like a hundred feet at everything else we do together. No, it's so much fun to work with him and I don't know if they'll let us do anything else."

In 2016, at the Toronto International Film Festival, Gosling revealed why he and Stone make a perfect on-screen match.

"I like working with Emma because I think she's secretly Canadian," he joked. "That's why we get along so well – she's wildly apologetic for no reason."

In related news, Stone had dished about the importance of friendships, during an interview with Elle. She said, "I think friendship is pretty much everything. Here's another turning-30 thing I've realized - You pick your family. You realise that your friendships, the people who go with you into these next phases of your life - you're choosing your family."

Adding on, she also shared her thoughts on turning 30. She said, "My twenties were a really interesting time, and there's been a lot that has happened in these past 10 years, both positive and not as positive. It's weird how much turning 30 crystallises your life. Instead of just living the dreams that I had in my youth and getting to do the job that I love to do and making friends and going through all of that, it's like, now what do I actively want as an adult?"
