Ryan Gosling Was Almost … A Backstreet Boy??!
“You can’t live in the past. You’ve got to live in the now. That ship has sailed.”[HP]
Here’s a little known fact about one of the biggest actors in Hollywood: he was once, almost, a Backstreet Boy.
Yup, you read right. The man who starred in such hard hitting fare as Drive and Blue Valentine could have told legions of teen girls to ‘Quit Playin’ Games With My Heart’. Turns out Gosling was an acquaintance of band member A.J. McLean who had mentioned to him that he might be a part of the soon-to-be-launched group. McLean, however, decided to do the douchey thing and not return any of Gosling’s calls when he reached out to him.
I dunno about you, but I am super glad things didn’t work out for Gosling as a boy band member. I’m guessing you are too.
