As the interview continues, Gosling, ever the good sport, decides to play along and reveals what he considers the most embarrassing role of his entire life. The clip in question featured a very young Gosling donning a hamster suit to portray the character Chubby in The Mickey Mouse Club, a show that served as the launch pad for several future stars, including Britney Spears, Christina Aguilera, and Justin Timberlake. The footage offered a glimpse into a time when Gosling was still finding his footing in the entertainment industry.

In the video, a youthful and endearingly awkward Gosling struggled to sit down and cross his legs while encumbered by the unwieldy hamster costume. The inherent hilarity of the scene was undeniable, and it was clear that Gosling’s journey from those humble beginnings to his present-day success was nothing short of remarkable.
