RYAN GOSLING has had a very auspicious start in Hollywood – he joined the Mickey Mouse Club at age 12 to be where the girls were. Not bad for a budding adolescent with a nascent case of raging hormones. Look where he’s at now…
“All the girls in my class were auditioning, so I did too,”
Ryan told Hollywood celebrity websites.
Ryan did belong to the last batch of Mouseketeers (bet you didn’t know that) that included Britney Spears, Justin Timberlake, Christina Aguilera, and Keri Russel before the long-running show finally ended its decades-long run.
“Somehow I got on, and then when they hired me, they realized that I couldn’t really dance or sing and I wasn’t talented so they stopped using me on the show!”
He’s kidding us right?
Ryan‘s moved on and gotten quite a number of awards and acting nominations (including one for an Academy Award) for his kudos-worthy and goosebump-inducing performances in the last 10 years for “The Believer,” “Murder by Numbers,” “The Notebook,” “Half Nelson,” “Fracture,” “Lars and The Real Girl,” “All Good Things,” and “Blue Valentine.”
Not bad for a kid who joined showbiz to oggle girls.
