Two of Hollywoods hunkiest hotties have a lot more in common than good looks and raw talent. Justin Timberlake and Ryan Gosling go WAY back and are even kiiiiiinda sorta brothers.

Let me explain.
Way back in the day (AKA the early ’90’s) these two younguns became friends while working together on Disney Channel’s Mickey Mouse Club (along with some other big names- such as Christina Aguilera and Britney Spears!)

They used to get up to all kinds of no good! During an appearance on The Ellen Show, Justin Timberlake spoke about the shenanigans he and Ryan Gosling would get up to during their time on the show: “We used to do terrible things. We thought we were so cool. Looking back on them, they weren’t as bad as I thought they were at the time. We stole a golf cart. And we were like, ‘Yeah, man. We’re stealing a golf cart!’ We drove into MGM Studios, which is totally illegal, by the way. I was like, ‘What do you want to do, thug?’ And Ryan was like, ‘I don’t know, cuz.’ Because that’s definitely how we talked.”
As you probably know, Ryan Gosling is a Canadian hailing from London, Ontario. The show filmed in the USA and Gosling’s mom had to return to Canada for her job during their second year on the MMC. In order to stay and continue working on the show, Justin Timberlake’s mother actually adopted Ryan Gosling and was his guardian for about six months. The two boys lived under the same roof during that time and were, essentially, brothers. More here.
