Vintage Ryan Gosling, age 12, talks about The Mickey Mouse Club: amazing?!

It feels like we haven’t discussed Ryan Gosling in a while. I needed a break from him, I think. As far as I know, Ryan and Eva Mendes are still together and everything is going according to plan. The Turban has been appeased! The Turban will probably be getting a ring soon. Just keep that in mind. Anyway, there’s a new Gosling video, and I couldn’t help feeling a little something in my heart facsimile. Several months ago, we saw a very young Gosling performing a dance to C+C Music Factory and singing “When a Man Loves A Woman” (it was ridic). And now we have a video of a 12-year-old Ryan Gosling doing an interview with a local Canadian TV station, discussing how awesome it is to get The Mickey Mouse Club gig. You know what? Even at the age of 12, Ryan Gosling was a pimp. I mean that in a nice way. He’s very, very cute here:

I swear, he’s flirting with the reporter! Right? I love how he swivels around in the chair like a kid, but he’s very well-spoken and polite and even kind of funny and flirtatious. The 11-year-old me would have been all over the 12-year-old Gosling. She would have thought he was, like, the coolest person EVER in the whole world.

In weirder news, Star Mag’s cover story this week is “Hollywood Housekeepers Tell All”. Gosling’s housekeeper (whom he definitely needs to fire) tells Star that “Ryan Gosling pees sitting down and waxes his chest and back every couple of weeks.” Chest AND back? Okay, I get waxing your back. But I will never, ever understand why men (and women) don’t like some fur on a man’s chest. As for the “pees sitting down” – how do you know he wasn’t doing a #2? Was the housekeeper listening at the door? Or maybe Ryan just likes to read the paper or a magazine while he’s taking care of business. It happens.

  3. pretty says:

    i don’t get this guy’s apeal at all.
    His face is average at BEST and his eyes are so close togheter. lol.
    horse face…
    And i saw a post on tumblr the other day saying “if your name is Ryan, you’re probably hot” and like there’s Ryan Reynolds and Ryan Gosling, Ryan Lochte(♥)’s pictures.
    Gosling?? come on,,, His body isn’t great either.
    I just googled “ryan gosling shirtless” and not that impressive. Reynolds and Lochte’s bodies like whoo..♥_♥

    • Abby says:

      Go watch Crazy, Stupid Love. He’s pretty awesome shirtless there…

    • Annie says:

      His face isn’t all that great to me but I can appreciate that he has some charisma. He’s turned out the best of the Mickey Mouse club I reckon.

    • Wilma says:

      I didn’t get it either. He seems like a nice guy, but a hot guy? And then last weekend I watched Drive…what can I say, dude stirred up some funny feelings in my lower body

    • EmmaStoneWannabe says:

      It’s his overconfidence/charisma/”swag”..if more guys had that going for them, they would typically be considered hotter than they otherwise would be. Yeah, his strutting in ‘Crazy Stupid Love…” Kind of a turn on!

    • Mazunte says:

      When a friend of mine told me she had a crush on Gosling before I saw any of his movie (except The Believer, many years ago), I thought the same as you, but then I saw Blue Valentine and I was like, “Ummm… He is SO charismatic and talented!” And, then, I watched almost all his movies except a couple when he was very young and, now, he is my favorite actor of his generation and the one I find the hottest. He is not a typical “pretty boy” but there is something special about him, besides talent and acting versatility, who makes him more attractive than a stereotypically gorgeous guy like Ryan Reynolds.
      This is a great interview. He sounds pretty smart and confident for a 12 yo.

    justin timberlake/ryan gosling:same war at this time

  5. Mia 4S says:

    Awww, so cute. Oh and I’m sure he is thrilled this video is making the rounds. 😉

  6. Kate says:

    This is not a local Canadian network. It is Canada AM, a national show equivalent to GMA/Today.

  7. Shitler says:

    I could have done without that housekeeper’s story

  8. Kate says:

    He was/is an old soul right? Well spoken and charismatic for a 12 YO boy! Anyone see the video of Madonna on Ellen yesterday? Rocco, her son, came out to participate in the dunk tank. He answered his questions from Ellen like a typical 12 year old boy. One word answers.

    No wonder Ryan got bullied.

    Entertainment industry was his calling.

    PS. Love the Canadian accent. Bedore he picked up the pseudo-brooklyn bullshit toughguy sounding one. He says Aboot! 😉

  9. Sweet Dee says:

    How dare he pee sitting down like the womyns! LOL what an asshat housekeeper.

    I like minimally hairy men, but not hairless.

  10. Dani says:

    He has the same exact facial expressions today

  11. bns says:

    I don’t get his appeal at all, but this is very cute. He’s really humble and sweet here.

  12. Obvious says:

    how does one not fall in love at this? it’s so freaking adorable. *sigh* i agree it’s not that he’s super hot, a lot of it is his charisma. that’s a good part of the reason i adore him so much.

  13. Guest says:

    ” O Canada”

  14. Lady_Luck says:

    He was so much cuter as a kid than an adult.

  15. J says:

    I’ve dated two guys who peed sitting down and they were both, in the end, straight up CRAZY. Now I understand why Ryan Gosling’s gaze has made me uneasy all of this time. “Hey, girl. I want to be on your level. So I pee sitting down.”

    • Esmom says:

      Lol. Have you seen the Paul Ryan Gosling meme? Cracks me up. Like “Hey girl, you know I can’t resist a tight little budget.”

  16. Seagulls says:

    I dislike Eva Mendes but I love that turban.

    She reminds me of the man repeller woman.

  17. Maya says:

    I know several German men who pee sitting down…my husband is one of them. My friends whose husbands are German say they do the same. Let me tell you, it’s wonderful to not have to deal with toilet seats being left up and pee splashes on the floor and elsewhere. So much cleaner and not any less “masculine” (which is ridiculous to even have to justify, but it’s clear that by mentioning that a man pees sitting down, that’s the implication). Maybe it’s a Canadian thing too?

    Also, I love Ryan Gosling so, so much. He was incredible in “Blue Valentine,” “Half Nelson,” and “Lars and the Real Girl.” “Crazy, Stupid Love” did very little in terms of showcasing his talent. His interviews are awesome, especially some of the super cute ones on Ellen. The Eva Mendes thing is totally throwing me off, but I’m trying to believe that all the bitchiness and cray cray stories were from when she was still a drug addict and that hopefully she’s less so since rehab.

    This video of him is adorable and I agree that he’s clearly an old soul. In an interview his mom talked about what it was like for Ryan not having a father around when he was growing up with just his sister and mom. He didn’t have a male figure to show him how to “become a man,” so he was always so dedicated to and serious about learning what it meant to be a man. That story just makes me want to give a big hug to the little guy in this video!

    Dead ringer for Macaulay Culkin.

    • velvetvoz says:

      You nailed it!!! I couldn’t figure out something but that’s what it is. They even speak alike. Strange!

  19. ToastedSkin says:

    this is so freakin adorable. He was so well-spoken as a child and so polite, awwwww!!

  20. xyz says:

    He’s STILL with Evil Mentos? He sure makes some weird choices, that boy. I still think this is a bearding situation. He must be deep in the closet and she’s had lesbian rumours about her for years. Those two have never looked in love, let alone looked like they even like each other.

  21. amy says:

    Why does he wax his body? It’s weird when men do that. I agree that hairy backs are gross, but the front?

  22. violette says:

    I wish my husband would pee sitting down. I hate having to clean up the puddles around the toilet all the time. If men insist on standing up, they should at least clean up after themselves.

  23. Angee says:

    Cute kid turned into a cute AND NICE man. Seems like a good guy all around. Go get ’em Ryan!

  24. I do not even understand how I stopped up right here, but I believed this publish was good. I do not understand who you might be however certainly you are going to a well-known blogger if you happen to aren’t already. Cheers!
