Flashback: Teenage Ryan Gosling’s First Interview With “The Insider”

Be still my beating heart! Yesterday, we got familiar with Ryan Gosling as a tween, singing and dancing to C+C Music Factory at a Mormon talent competition. Today, our journey through Ryan’s adolescence continues with his very first interview on “The Insider” in 1998, preparing for his role on “Young Hercules.” In the video, a significantly blonder Gosling — then around 18 years old — works out at the gym, punching a dummy, and talks about his love of Bruce Lee movies. Dying inside.
