Well, here's a bromance that's never going to happen.

Josh Brolin recently opened up about his tough guy reputation in Hollywood during a candid chat with Man of the World magazine, and also about young actors today who he thinks are attempting to put up a similar front. But one particular diss sounds a lot like he's talking about Ryan Gosling.

Brolin, 47, worked with the 34-year-old heartthrob in 2013's Gangster Squad.

"I see young Hollywood punks on the set, and it's funny to me. Because it's absolutely me all over again," Brolin says. "I'm the old guy who's like, 'Oh cool, you got your leather jacket and it cost you $400 and you bought it all ripped up!'"

"I remember a guy I worked with who was from Ontario, but he talked like De Niro," he further recalls. "I was like, 'Holy sh**, he's actually doing De Niro.' Does he know that I know? I'm not even listening to what he's saying. It's fascinating to me."

Gosling, of course, is from Ontario. He also admitted to W magazine in 2010 that his accent doesn't exactly come from a natural place.

"As a kid I decided that a Canadian accent doesn’t sound tough," the Notebook star explained. "I thought guys should sound like Marlon Brando. So now I have a phony accent that I can’t shake, so it’s not phony anymore. I’m going for the Madonna thing, the Lady Gaga thing -- a phony accent that becomes your trademark."

Looks like he certainly succeeded.
