Ryan Gosling: “Britney was a sweetheart”

Now, I’m sure you know all about Ryan Gosling as I talk about him incessantly. If not, quick recap- he was part of the Mickey Mouse Club TV show that spawned teen stars like Justin Timberlake, Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera.

He had previously talked about how he lived with Justin and Justin’s mum while they were filming and now, he opens up about his friendship with Britney Spears.

Speaking to The Sunday Times Style, Ryan said: “Britney was a sweetheart. She lived right above me, the girl next door. The little girl I used to play basketball and spin the bottle with.”

How cute is that?! Could you imagine them playing together?! Awww! I wonder if Ryan was gutted when Britney was more into Justin.

He admits that he doesn’t keep in touch with his former Club pals, saying: “Not really. I mean, sometimes you are at the same event, but it’s a lot like I imagine what it’s like to run into someone from elementary school.”

Despite the Club giving him a cutesy teeny-bopper image at the beginnings of his career, he praises it for the work ethic it instilled.

”It is remarkable. Now you have ‘The X Factor‘ and all that stuff, but back then it wasn’t around. You give these kids an unparalleled work ethic which is why you see the difference between ‘NSYNC and those other bands, and between Britney and Christina and the other girls.”

Oh Ryan, being a Disney kid who played spin the bottle with Britney should be a bad thing, but it doesn’t turn me off at all.
