They’re both massive superstars in the entertainment industry nowadays, but back in their adolescent years Ryan Gosling and Britney Spears were just a couple of curious kids.
During an interview with the Sunday Times, the “Lars and the Real Girl” actor confessed that he and the “Toxic” songstress used to lock lips.
Ryan shared, "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."
And though he and Spears starred together on the “Mickey Mouse Club,” he hasn’t exactly kept in touch with her since their Disney days. "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."
Regarding the success of his fellow Mouseketeers, Ryan marveled, "It is remarkable, but it isn't, in a way. 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."
