How Justin Timberlake and Ryan Gosling Used to Talk

Justin Timberlake.

What did Ryan Gosling sound like before he began his transformation into a mumbly Long Island dock worker? The guy's a Canadian who started his career in the Mickey Mouse Club — surely his voice was a little more squeaky-clean when he was a kid, right? Let Justin Timberlake educate you: The two used to live together in Florida when they were on Disney duty in the early nineties, and Timberlake recounted to Ellen DeGeneres one conversation they had after stealing a golf cart. "I was like, 'What you wanna do, thug?' And he was like, 'I don't know, cuz,' because that's definitely how we talked," says Timberlake. "I was like, 'I don't know, man. I'm in the mood for some vanilla.' And we was like, 'I'm in the mood for some chocolate.' So we went and got milkshakes." The "Hey Girl" variations are coming a bit too easily now, aren't they? [E!]
