When They Were Besties: Ryan Gosling And Justin Timberlake

We all know fully grown studs Justin Timberlake and Ryan Gosling were once both members of the Mickey Mouse Club. It turns out the two were very close during their time on the show—they actually lived together for six months, and Timberlake’s mother became Gosling’s legal guardian after the latter’s mother had to return to Canada. Buzzfeed found photographic proof in this too-cute snapshot of the two from some point in the early 1990s.

Timberlake looks a little timid, but Gosling’s already exuding that star quality—He’s practically saying “Hey girl” with his eyes.
