Ryan Gosling turns 34 today – and what better way to celebrate the new dad than time traveling back to 1998 for our very first interview with the Hollywood heartthrob as he trained for his lead role in the TV series, Young Hercules.
While he's been busy melting (and breaking) hearts in recent years, 18-year-old Ryan (apparently) didn't ALWAYS have his pick of the ladies. When asked how he'll react when girls start to chase after him, Ryan responded, "I’ll take 'em out! Anyone who want to go out with me can come out with me. I'm not picky!"
Oh, and not to mention – he tries to pick up our ET director!
No dice! Little did he know he would become one of the most sought after men in Hollywood.
Check out this video to see 18-year-old Ryan getting adorably shot down.
