“There’s a moment that haunts me where we’re dancing, Emma [Stone] and I,” he said. “I didn’t know this would become the poster for the movie.”

He explained that in the scene, Stone’s hands were supposed to be pointed up in the air. He decided to have his hand flattened instead of pointing skyward, despite being advised, “It wasn’t cool.”

“Now when I look at it and I have to see it all the time, you know what would have been cooler than this?,” he said, re-creating the way he held his hand. “That [gesturing with his hand pointed up].”

“It’s just a lazy, he added. “I call it ‘La La Hand.’”

Gosling was informed by the interviewerthat dancers refer to it as “hamburger hands.”

“It’s a thing!” he said, adding that he thought having a background in dance “would help in La La Land.’”

“Then, of course, ‘Hamburger Hands Gosling’ over here,” he joked. “It didn’t help me at all in the end.”
