Ryan Gosling’s first interview, age 12
‘Oh, I’m a huge fan; I think he’s amazing. I think he’s a wonderful little actor. He definitely has that ‘something’ on film; on camera, which is really cool. So I’m very happy for him.’
‘Ryan and I used to do terrible things, we thought we were so cool when we were on the Mickey Mouse Club. Looking back on it, it wasn’t as bad as I thought it was at the time.’ [x]
Ryan: And that’s Ryan Reynolds…
Letterman: Tell me how you got in that group, how did that happen?
Ryan: I have no idea how that happened. I mean, they regretted it pretty quickly after they hired me. I auditioned. I wanted to be a dancer, all the girls in my class were auditioning so I did too and somehow I got on. And then when they hired me they realized I couldn’t really dance or sing I wasn’t talented so they stopped using me on the show.
‘Ryan Gosling and I used to steal golf carts and go driving in the middle of the park to get milk shakes, and we never got in trouble for it. We thought we were big shit.’
