Ryan Gosling in the Mickey Mouse Club (bottom left)
Actor, heartthrob, animal lover - there's plenty of reasons Ryan Gosling has women hanging off his every word, but he's now admitted that he could also have added boyband member to his repertoire, if he'd have played his cards right.
Formerly a member of the Mickey Mouse Club alongside Backstreet members Justin Timberlake and A.J McLean, Ryan was witness to the early stages of the boyband's development: "We were living in the same place as that guy A.J from the Backstreet Boys, and so he was always talking about the band, but they were just forming that band so he was saying how big they were going to be, and he had a poster of them in his house."
Though it seems the Gangster Squad star was doubtful of the boys' potential: "We were like, "that's never going to happen. Didn't they already do that with New Kids [On the Block]? You're a little late." Cut to... I was wrong."
Well, even Ryan can't get it right all the time, though it may not be too late, as after Ryan joked that AJ won't return his calls, the singer has come forward to say: If we ever want a sixth Backstreet Boy, I'm going to call you."
We think he'd make a stellar addition to the line-up.
