Ryan Gosling Loves Knitting & Almost Joined The Backstreet Boys

There’s no hiding it anymore, Ryan Gosling is the perfect man.

It’s totally true! When GQ Australia launched a campaign saying the perfect man doesn’t exist, fans were quick to correct them by saying he does and he is Ryan Gosling. How did Ryan feel about such an accolade? “What? People actually got in touch to say that?” Oh, Ryan. Of course they did! You’re perfect!

Not only is he completely gorgeous and the nicest person ever–remember when he broke up that street fight in New York City?–but he also enjoys the simple things in live. After learning how to knit on the set of Lars & the Real Girl, Ryan decided that would be his perfect day. “If I had to design my perfect day, that would be it. And you get something out of it at the end. You get a nice present. For someone who wants an oddly shaped, off-putting scarf.” I’ll take your scarf! So, what’s this about the Backstreet Boys?

Well if Ryan and Backstreet Boy, A.J. McLean are to be believed, Ryan was almost a member of the 90s boy band. According to sources, Ryan didn’t join BSB thinking they wouldn’t do well, but when they started taking off, he tried calling A.J. to avail.It’s OK though, because the offer from A.J. now stands to join as a sixth member.

You know, something tells me that Ryan is doing just fine without ever having joined BSB. Who knows if we’d have the knitting loving Ryan today if he’d become a boy bander?
