Ryan Gosling is reliving his past.
The 37-year-old star ran into fellow “Mickey Mouse Club” alum Britney Spears backstage when he stopped by “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” to film an episode that aired Friday.
“Neither one of us could remember [when we last saw each other] which I think is a sign that it’s been a while,” he said to DeGeneres.
However, Gosling can still remember his first impressions of Spears, along with another notable “MMC” alum, Christina Aguilera.
“I remember when we first got to the show, they had all of the kids perform for one another, and I remember Christina Aguilera and then Britney performing,” he recalled. “I remember thinking ohhh ok so, they are like, freakishly talented.”
And Gosling’s talent? “I just said, ‘I’m Canadian!’”
Earlier this year, Spears told ET Online she would love to have a “Mickey Mouse Club” reunion.
“It was a really good time,” the 36-year-old songstress told Nancy O’Dell in July. “It was a great time. It was probably one of the most special times in my life.”
