Ryan Gosling Can’t Relate to Others
Ryan Gosling feels detached from the rest of the world.
The Gangster Squad actor shot to fame at the age of just 12 as part of the All-New Mickey Mouse Club and says that, coupled with being home-schooled and his current A-list status, means it is hard for him to understand other people's perceptions of life.
"Sometimes I find it hard to relate to other people's perceptions of the world and how they live. I grew up in a very unconventional way, where I've been working since I was eight and literally spent several years living in Disneyland. I don't see myself as belonging anywhere except to this small world you find on film sets and the one I create for myself with my friends," he said.
The 32-year-old hunk has always felt like an outsider and admits he never had ambitions to get a conventional job:
"I always thought of myself as an outsider because I didn't have the same kind of life other kids did. I was indulging in a fantasy world living on the set of the Mickey Mouse Club. I probably grew up with a more adventurous and mysterious perspective on everything and I didn't have any particular drive to go to college or become a doctor or lawyer or work a normal nine-to-five job. I feel very privileged to have been able to lead the kind of life I've had so far."
