Ryan Gosling didn’t believe The Backstreet Boys would succeed. Known for his roles in several romantic films such as The Notebook and La La Land, the Hollywood hunk started out as a child actor at the age of 13 on Disney Channel’s The Mickey Mouse Club. Now he is admired by millions of people around the world for his acting.

It was previously reported that Gosling will be working on ‘Wolfman’, which will be directed by Derek Cianfrance. The duo had previously worked twice in Gosling’s two critically acclaimed films, 2010’s Blue Valentine and 2012’s The Place Beyond the Pines.

While we were talking about the actor, it was once reported that Ryan Gosling did not believe The Backstreet Boys would work. In 2020, the 90s boy band appeared on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, where they revealed that Ryan didn’t think the band would work. “Long story short, we lived in the same apartment complex when he did The Mickey Mouse Club,” says band member AJ McLean.

“He, Justin [Timberlake]Christina [Aguilera]britney [Spears], all of them,” The Backstreet Boys member added. “We were playing basketball almost every other day. The group had begun. I kept telling him how big this was going to get. And he says, ‘Dude. New kids [on the Block] have already done it. This is never going to work. Just shoot the ball,’” McLean continued, talking about Ryan Gosling.

“I said he was wrong and it worked,” McLean joked. It was also rumored that Gosling had been asked to join the band, but he turned down the offer. The Boys then also made the rumors clear, saying he would never audition.

Despite what a young Ryan Gosling said, The Backstreet Boys kicked off with the 1997 single Quit Playing Games (With My Heart) and released several more hits, including I Want It That Way in 1999.
