RYAN Gosling has finally eaten his cereal in tribute to a young Scottish filmmaker who has died after documenting his battle against cancer.

Ryan McHenry’s Vine about the Hollywood actor refusing to eat cereal went viral in 2013 and saw him scoop a social media award.

The hilarious videos called ‘Ryan Gosling Won’t Eat His Cereal’ were shared by millions and became one of the world’s most famous memes.

The clips showed the Edinburgh College of Art graduate holding a spoon up to a television screen and timing Gosling’s on-screen gestures to make it look like he is refusing to eat.

The 27-year-old was diagnosed with more than a dozen tumours on his lung but bravely posted on social media about his struggle with the disease.

He died earlier this week from bone cancer.

Now Gosling has paid tribute by posting a Vine of himself finally eating his cereal.

Yesterday Gosling posted the video on Twitter and wrote: “My heart goes out to all of Ryan McHenry’s family and friends.

“Feel very lucky to have been apart of his life in some small way.”

In the Vine the Hollywood hunk pours his cereal and milk, raised his spoon in a toast and tucks in.

Gosling had previously stayed quiet publicly about the ‘Ryan Gosling Won’t Eat His Cereal’ pneumonia.

Talking about the videos back in 2013 Ryan said: “The level of success this has had is insane – I’m getting notifications like every 10 seconds to say it’s been shared or re-tweeted.

“The popularity really spans all different social classes – I think it’s because Ryan Gosling is basically the superstar of the moment but also the humour is really simplistic and something everyone can appreciate.”

He added: “I know Ryan Gosling’s got a Twitter but I don’t think he uses it – I would love to hear what he thinks of them.”

Last year the Scot made another hit video – this time from his from his hospital bed just hours after having 17 cancerous tumours removed from his lung.

He got friends to bring his computer equipment to the Golden Jubilee Hospital in Glasgow and within a few hours of coming out of surgery had posted a video speaking about his struggle with cancer.

In it he said: “I had 17 small tumours removed from one of my lungs. I’m feeling fine though.

“I have had a lot of ideas while I have been in hospital and I thought I would have to wait until I got home, but I got my friend to bring in the equipment.”

Ryan then made a hilarious clip in which Leonardo Di Caprio appears to fall over after being offered cereal.

He said: “My friends had to hold the spoon this time too because of the scar from my lung operation.”

He also posted a Vine – a short online video clip – of him shaving off his hair, as well as ‘chemo selfies’.
