In 2017, During an interview on The Graham Norton Show Ryan revealed that her mother Donna Gosling sported a beehive hairdo at the 2007 Academy Awards because one of her friend convinced her that beehives were gonna be all the rage and you'd feel embarrassed if you didn't have a beehive but it turned out to be the opposite as there was a natural hair vibe that year. Donna was sitting in front of Rachel Weisz and because of her hairs Rachel had to keep leaning to see in front of her beehive. To make her feel comfortable about her beehive hairstyle Ryan asked Meryl Streep to compliment Donna's hairs. Ryan said,
"I didn't know what to do cause I was - I wanted to have a nice night, so I didn't knew Meryl Streep but she was sitting next to me and I said in a commercial break, 'Would you mind just telling my mom you like her hair?' and she was like, 'I got this,'"
"And then the commercial went and she goes, 'Do you know, I was gonna do a beehive and I wish I had.' And my mom was like, raise the roof all night."
