Graham Norton recently made Ryan Gosling watch some footage of his younger self dancing in a recital, and it’s a dream come true.
Graham talked about guests Ben Affleck, Sienna Miller, Emma Stone, and Ryan Gosling’s early careers, and even had a couple of adorable old photos to share.
Here’s young Ben Affleck in The Voyage of the Mimi.
And a young Emma Stone playing against type in a school production of The Princess and the Pea.
And then, Graham Norton brought out the big guns. VIDEO of a very young Ryan Gosling in a dance recital.
Ryan of course, was a pretty good sport about it.
Ryan explained that the tween dance troupe scene could be pretty rough.
He talked about the fierce competition he faced while doing a “sort of Canadian Star Search.”
He continued, “They were dancing to Phil Collins’s “Two Hearts” and they had big, heart-shaped bows, and they were the ones to beat.”
But Ryan felt like he had it under control, with his perfect starting stance for his routine to “Everybody Dance Now.”
And right as he was about to start, the twins were in his sightline, ready to intimidate.
But in the end, Ryan prevailed.
And then, it was time to relive the magic. Sit back and enjoy.
Those moves, tho!
OMG, adult Ryan watching little Ryan dance is a gift.
And those silver Hammer pants are the bow on top.
