Before becoming a Hollywood heartthrob, Drive actor Ryan Gosling was a member of the famous Mickey Mouse Club, which has produced such stars as Justin Timberlake, Christina Aguilera and Britney Spears. However, Ryan admits that he was nowhere near as talented as most of the other kids and would after be cut out of shots.
Gosling explained, "In my age bracket there were seven kids, three of whom were Christina Aguilera, Britney Spears, and Justin Timberlake. Filming was kind of depressing because when I got there, they realised that I wasn't really up to stuff in comparison with what some of the other kids were able to do.”
He added, "I remember they put four of us in a dance routine, but I was so off. I was on the end, so they just pushed the shot in closer on the other three guys to frame me out. I would just come in at the beginning of the show and then come back at the end. I'd have a sketch here or there, but I didn't end up working that much, which was disheartening." Ryan Gosling
