Whoa! Gosling, Spears played spin the bottle?!

Love was in the air for the Disney Mouseketeers back in the '90s!

Ryan Gosling, who appeared in the Mickey Mouse Club alongside Christina Aguilera, Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake in the early '90s, reveals that he and Spears used to play spin the bottle!

In an interview with the Sunday Times, "The Place Beyond the Pines" actor revealed that when they were just pre-teens, he met Spears for the first time on set: "Britney was a sweetheart. She lived right above me, the girl next door. The little girl I used to play basketball and spin the bottle with.”

So does he still see Spears or any of his other former castmates? “Not really. I mean, sometimes you are at the same event, but it’s a lot like I imagine what it’s like to run into someone from elementary school.”

Gosling, now 32, says he isn't surprised by how successful many in the cast have gone on to become: "It is remarkable, but it isn’t, in a way. Now you have 'The X Factor' and all that stuff, but back then that wasn’t around."

The actor says the show helped shape how they work in the business: "You give these kids an unparalleled work ethic, which is why you see the difference between ’N Sync and those other bands and between Britney and Christina and the other girls.”
