Ryan Gosling loves the Mouse House – and he’s not ashamed to admit it.
Fellow Disneyland lover John Stamos recently revealed that Gosling helped him overcome his slight embarrassment over loving the theme park as much as he does as an adult.
“Six or seven years ago, I was like, ‘Man, I gotta shed this Disney thing, [because] who’s gonna take me seriously with the Mickey Mouse stuff? I’ve gotta distance myself from it,’” Stamos, 59, recalled to Keke Palmer on an episode of her podcast, “Baby, This is Keke Palmer.”
However, an alleged dinner party encounter with Gosling, 42, changed his mind.
“’You’re a Disney fan, aren’t you?’” the “Full House” alum remembers Gosling asking him.
“I say, ‘Yeah.’ He goes, ‘I’m obsessed. I’m a Disney adult. I go there by myself. I wear headphones. I go on rides. I have a mixtape.’”
Stamos added, “I go, ‘Yeah, me too. I’m a Disney guy too.’ So that kind of turned the corner for me.”
Gosling’s love of the theme park seemingly originated back in the ’90s, when he starred in Disney Channel’s “The Mickey Mouse Club” from 1993 to 1995.
The beloved series also featured fellow future stars like Britney Spears, Justin Timberlake and Christina Aguilera.
Despite Gosling’s love for Disneyland, the “La La Land” star likely won’t have time to whiz around rides any time soon as his hotly anticipated “Barbie” movie hits theaters this July.
Gosling plays the iconic character of Ken in the Greta Gerwig-directed film, opposite Margot Robbie who stars as Barbie.
The onscreen couple wowed the crowd last month at CinemaCon when they appeared dressed in character.
Gosling admitted he doubted his “Ken-ergy” before filming began.
“I was living my life and then one day, I was bleaching my hair and shaving my legs and wearing bespoke neon outfits and rollerblading down Venice Beach,” he joked.
“Why is there fake tanner on my sheets? Why am I wearing jackets without shirts? What just happened?”
