Justin Timberlake Ruins Ryan Gosling’s Hipster Cred In GQ

|

Ryan Gosling walks the fine line between someone you’d want to cuddle with during The Office, and someone you’d believe really went crazy in that elevator scene in Drive (you know what we’re talking about). The truth is, however, that Ryan can’t get away with the satin scorpion-emblazoned jacket side of his persona if everyone knows he spent his tween years pillow-fighting with Justin Timberlake. So excuse Ryan for trying to look cool, Justin, and quit blowing up his spot in your new GQ interview! Joined by Jimmy Fallon in the GQ “Men of the Year” issue, Timberlake has some bad news regarding Gosling’s smoldering hipster image:

“Jimmy Fallon: ‘Dude, I was just talking to [Ryan] Gosling about that. Did Gosling really live on your couch when he was a kid?’
Justin Timberlake: ‘So he tried to make it seem like he was bohemian even back then?’
Jimmy Fallon: ‘Definitely, man. He said he was struggling and you helped him out.’
Justin Timberlake: ‘Ryan’s mom had to stay back in Canada and my mom was his guardian for a year so he could come down and be on the show. But Gosling got his own bed. He didn’t sleep on the couch. He said that?’
Jimmy Fallon: ‘It’s a better story!’
Justin Timberlake: ‘I’m picturing a ten-year-old Gosling bumming Marlboro Reds off some bum, growing hipster facial hair…’
Jimmy Fallon: ‘All I got is this one pair of Underoos, man! I got nothing, man!’”

Ugh, why don’t you two just bring up the fact that Ryan is Canadian already, if you want to throw him under the bus? If Timberlake ever reveals that Ryan’s perfect three-day stubble gets applied by Makeup every morning, so help us, we will find a new fantasy boyfriend to quietly obsess over!
