Time magazine’s Coolest Person of 2011, Ryan Gosling, turns 32-years-old today!
Gosling began his career as a child star on the Disney Channel’s Mickey Mouse Club way back in 1993. As for his childhood, Ryan told Esquire:
Ryan told Esquire: “I went through puberty in a theme park. I’m grateful. That place was a landscape to me. I had adventures every day. Backstage at Disney World, there are stories. Mickey Mouse with his head off, drinking coffee on break. Pirates on the phone. Ghosts in line for food. It just made me see things.”
In 2004 he landed his ultimate breakout role in The Notebook and since then has become a heartthrob to millions as well as the focus of the Hey Girl… phenomenon.
