Ryan Gosling: I Practice Ballet Whenever I Can
“I just feel like I wouldn’t know how to think any other way. My sister was my best friend and my hero growing up. Because I was home-schooled I didn’t have a lot of friends and I did ballet, which was always just girls. All of that had an effect on my brain.”
As for weather this Black Swan is still involved in ballet, Ryan revealed:
“I practice whenever I can,” adding that he currently has “no free time.” Despite his enjoyment of the ballet, Ryan jokes, “A lot of the students are young girls so they’re there with their mums but they just kind of watch and tell me to keep it up. They try and be positive but I’m so bad. I don’t even know what I like about it but it’s like acting, I’m just compelled to do it and I do it to find out why. The not knowing is interesting.”
Who could forget Ryan’s dancing skills in the 2000 family film Remember the Titans. Check out his moves below!
Growing up around his sister and mother seemed to have made him good with girls. The actor has been romantically connected to Rachel McAdams, Sandra Bullock and most recently his The Place Beyond the Pines co-star Eva Mendes.
“The Place Beyond the Pines was the best experience I have ever had making a film. It’s because Derek and I now have one film behind us and a history. We can talk to each other in a way we never could before so Pines is an evolution. I feel like I’ve been dating all these film-makers and now I just want to get married.”
