Ryan Gosling and Justin Timberlake Had an Oscars 2017 Mickey Mouse Club Reunion
Ryan Gosling and Justin Timberlake had a Micky Mouse Club reunion at the Oscars 2017. See the pics at MTV.co.uk.
Rewind just the 21 years ago, turn on your TV box and you may just see fetus Justin Timberlake and fetus Ryan Gosling a-shimmying and a-shaking together in their best double denim. What a time to be alive.
It was the era of the Mouseketeers ruling Disney in the Micky Mouse Club - and now in a strange, Disney-related twist of fate, 2017 is the year which saw them both nominated for Academy Awards at the same time.
But just when you thought the Oscars 2017 couldn’t get any better than Ryan’s frilly red carpet shirt, the boys have just gone and had the biggest and best bromantic reunion ever.
A couple of decades after their work for the mouse alongside Britney and Christina, Ryan and JT have better haircuts, wives, children and facial hair - but they haven’t exactly formed a strong friendship as a result.
In fact, it’s long been thought that their old school bromance has turned sour, with Justin recently ‘nonchalantly’ telling The Hollywood Reporter: “We aren’t the closest of friends, for whatever reason.”
BUT LOOK. That’s clearly out the window, after they shared a special moment on the Oscars frow resulting in a photo that you’ll want to print out and put in a frame.
Something clearly did cause a rift between Justin and Ryan, though. Back in a 2011 GQ interview, when asked by Jimmy Fallon whether he had Ryan sleeping on his couch as roommates in their MMC days, Justin immediately disagreed.
"So he tried to make it seem like he was bohemian even back then?" Timberlake scoffed.
"Gosling got his own bed. He didn't sleep on the couch. I'm picturing a ten-year-old Gosling bumming Marlboro Reds off some bum, growing hipster facial hair…”
Awkward. Ah well, the Oscars is a magical place.

Magical stuff. Now how about we go behind the scenes of La La Land with Emma Stone, hey? Sounds GOOD.
