Blast from the Past: Justin Timberlake and Ryan Gosling
13-year-old Justin Timberlake and 14-year-old Ryan Gosling, 1994.
Ryan Gosling looks like he already knows about the Oscars and that he’s gonna steal your girl. Timberlake looks like he’s about to shed a tear… Cry me a river! 😀
The two first met back in 1993 when they were cast on the long-running variety show ‘Mickey Mouse Club’ featuring a rotating cast of teenagers that aired on the Disney Channel. In fact, Gosling and Timberlake were part of the club’s last cast of performers alongside singers Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera.
Called “Mouseketeers”, the cast would often perform songs, dances, or skits in front of a live studio audience and interact with guests. Timberlake, of course, went on to become a member of ‘NSYNC before branching out into a smash Grammy-winning solo career, while Gosling can be seen showing off his vocal and dancing chops in ‘La La Land’.
They’re both 36.
