Taylor Swift Cosigns Ryan Gosling’s ‘SNL’ Parody of ‘All Too Well’: ‘This Monologue Is Everything’

Taylor Swift is just like Us — she can’t stop singing Ryan Gosling‘s version of “All Too Well.”

Swift, 34, praised Gosling’s playful cover following his latest appearance on Saturday Night Live. “All Too Well (Ryan and Emily’s Version) !!!” she wrote via her Instagram Story on Sunday, April 14, alongside a clip from the episode. “Watch me accidentally catch myself singing this version on tour. This monologue is EVERYTHING.”

Gosling, 43, hosted SNL for the third time on Saturday, April 13, promoting his movie The Fall Guy. “Don’t worry, I’m not gonna make any jokes about Ken,” he teased at the top of the show, referring to his character from 2023’s Barbie. “Because it’s not funny. Ken and I … we had to break up.”

Gosling said he got in “too deep” with Ken, teasing that leaving the character behind felt like the end of a relationship. “And for processing a breakup, there’s really only one thing that can help,” he continued. “The music of the great Taylor Swift.”

Sitting at a piano, Gosling donned a pair of stylish sunglasses as Swift’s “All Too Well” began to play. “I shredded Venice Beach, it’s true / My clothes were tight but something about that spandex felt so right,” he sang, tweaking the lyrics to fit Ken’s story.

Instead of Swift’s iconic scarf, Gosling sang about leaving Ken’s rollerblades at Barbie’s house. “Oh that sweet definition of my washboard abs / Singing into Indigo Girls in the car with Babs,” he continued. “If I said I was going fine, you know I’d be lying / ‘Cause I was just Ken and now I’m just Ryan.”

The ballad was soon interrupted by Gosling’s Fall Guy costar Emily Blunt, who entered to thunderous applause. “Look at you, you’re Kenning right now. And I hate that there’s even a verb,” she said, telling Gosling he was “embarrassing” himself and encouraging him to “move on.”

Despite her efforts to help Gosling let go, Blunt eventually caved and began to sing about a former character of her own: Oppenheimer‘s Kitty. “Father of the atom bomb and a bottle of Jack / I used to be the alcoholic wife of a dude in the hat,” she sang. “Talkin’ to Albert Einstein, sipping a margarita / With Sir Christopher Nolan in the back of a Kia.”

While Swift has been known to make a surprise cameo on the NBC series — she dropped by last fall to introduce her friend and musical guest Ice Spice — the songwriter was on the West Coast this weekend with her boyfriend, Travis Kelce. The couple supported Swift’s pal Jack Antonoff and his band Bleachers during their Coachella performance on Saturday.
