You remember Justin Timberlake’s appearance on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” a few weeks ago, right? The ex-N Sync frontman got a lot of press for talking about his former “Mickey Mouse Club” costar and obvious man-crush, Ryan Gosling, calling the Ã¼ber talented, smokin’ hottie, “unbelievable” and “one of the best actors of our generation” and sharing some stories about the trouble they got into as kids. But now JT is singing a slightly different tune.
In an interview for GQ‘s Men of the Year issue — so obviously this happened a while back — Justin and Jimmy Fallon talk about how the Oscar nominee has claimed he slept on Justin’s couch as a kid.
“So he tried to make it seem like he was bohemian even back then?” Justin “jokes.” When Jimmy says yes, JT says Ryan actually slept in a bed and then quips, “I’m picturing a ten-year-old Gosling bumming Marlboro Reds off some bum, growing hipster facial hair … “
Wow, JT, jealous much? Sure, Ryan embellishes stories to make them more entertaining, but at least he can actually, you know, act. Ryan Gosling has been nominated for an Academy Award and is critically praised in pretty much everything he does, unlike Justin Timberlake, who receives tepid (at best) reviews but is still desperately trying to pretend he’s a serious actor even though he hasn’t been in a movie that was a hit because of him. Besides, it’s a pretty douchey move to call someone else out in the media like that. Remember when he went on Barbara Walters and threw Britney Spears under the bus for her virginity claim? How would Justin like it if Ryan went on Jimmy Fallon’s show and talked trash about all of his crappy movies, like “In Time” and “The Love Guru”? Just STFU and stick to music from now on, ok, JT?
What do you think? Is Justin Timberlake obviously jealous of Ryan Gosling? Was he just having fun in the interview? And you totally saw those two on the “Mickey Mouse Club” back in the day, right (hilarious video below)? Sound off in the comments!
