Former Mouseketeers Justin Timberlake + Ryan Gosling Used to Live Together
Before they were known as two of the most scorching hot male celebrities around today, Justin Timberlake and 'Drive' actor Ryan Gosling actually bunked together back in the day. The duo appeared on 'The Mickey Mouse Club' from 1993-1994, and during this time, the boys (who were around 13 years old during that time) lived together and tried their best to stir up trouble.
Singer/actor Justin Timberlake recently shared the story with talk show host Ellen Degeneres. "[Ryan's] mother had to keep her job in Canada the second year that we were on the television show, and my mom was his guardian for like six months," Timberlake said. "So, we actually lived together when we were that age ... We were probably a little closer than the rest of the kids that were on the show because, ya know, we had to share a bathroom. "
Timberlake also shared a story about him and Gosling stealing a golf cart, which wasn't nearly as bada--- as they guys thought it was as tweens. "We used to do terrible things. We thought we were so cool when we were on 'The Mickey Mouse Club,'" Timberlake explained to DeGeneres. "[One time] we stole a golf cart. And we we're like 'Yeah, man. We're stealing a golf cart,' but meanwhile, you know what it's like on a backlot. There's just golf carts everywhere."
The 'SexyBack' singer continued the story, doing his best rendition of his 13-year-old self. "So, we stole the golf cart and we drove into MGM Studios, which is totally illegal by the way. And I was like, 'What you want to do, thug?' And he [Ryan] was like, 'I don't know, cuz,' because that's definitely how we talked." After driving into the MGM studio area, Timberlake and Gosling celebrated their epic golf cart steal with a couple of milkshakes.
While they might've thought they were being rebellious teenagers, we have to say that nobody can really pull off that role while wearing overalls. We're looking at you, JT!
