Gosling: ‘Mickey Mouse Club was depressing’

The actor sang, danced and acted on the now-defunct variety TV show alongside fellow Mouseketeers Timberlake, Spears and Christina Aguilera.

But he admits he struggled to live up to his castmates’ performances and was left hurt when they were favoured by producers.

He tells Interview magazine, “It was kind of depressing because when I got there, they realised that I wasn’t really up to snuff in comparison with what some of the other kids were able to do. I remember one time they put four of us in a dance routine, but I was so off. I was on the end, so they just pushed the shot in closer on the other three guys to frame me out.

“I would just come in at the beginning of the show and then come back at the end, and occasionally I’d have a sketch here or there, but I didn’t end up working that much, which was disheartening.”
