Ryan Gosling In A Boyband. Imagine!

Imagine a world where Ryan Gosling wasn’t the sexy, smouldering, super-hot actor that he is. Doesn’t bear thinking about does it? Who would possibly have made us melt in Drive, sob like a baby in The NoteBook or simply just given us the hope that one day, just like Emma Stone in Crazy Sexy Love,  we too might change the “bad boy” that we insist on ‘dating’.

But it seems, according to AJ McLean, that Gosling’s route to stardom could quite easily have been very very different had he joined the ’90s U.S boyband, The Backstreet Boys.

The Backstreet Boy said in an interview earlier this year that the offer was there and that Gosling actually turned down an opportunity to join the group.  The story goes that McLean and Gosling lived next door to one another throughout their teens. McLean asked Gosling to join his group but after originally saying no, Ryan had a sudden change of heart and asked McLean to reconsider him. But in a happy twist of fate, the singer didn’t return Ryan’s call.

McLean said, “Ryan, I am so sorry that I didn’t call you back. If we ever want a sixth Backstreet Boy member I’m gonna call you. You can sing.” He added  ”He really can sing his ass off. He’s not only a great actor and a handsome man.”

Oh that he is, McLean, that he is!
