Way back in the day, Ryan Gosling was a cast member on The Mickey Mouse Club. The experience wasn't all butterflies and rainbows for him, though, because he didn't feel as talented as co-stars Justin Timberlake and Britney Spears.
The actor admits he struggled to keep up with the others' performances, telling Interview magazine:
"It was kind of depressing because when I got there, they realized that I wasn't really up to snuff in comparison with what some of the other kids were able to do. I remember one time 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, and occasionally I'd have a sketch here or there, but I didn't end up working that much, which was disheartening."
Someone should let him know there's no need to think about that anymore! After his role in The Notebook, he officially reached "heart throb" status.
