Ryan Gosling Teaches Jimmy Kimmel to Waltz, Shares 'Blade Runner' Set Stories With Harrison Ford
By Zach Seemayer
Ryan Gosling learned how to really cut a rug for his new musical dramedy La La Land! And, while the handsome star told Jimmy Kimmel on Wednesday that he'd already mostly forgotten everything about dancing, he was still able to show the late night host how to waltz.
"I remember the waltzing, that's pretty easy, but I don't remember the tap dancing," Gosling explained.
"Is waltzing easy?" Kimmel asked.
"I think I know where this is going," Gosling said, suspiciously. "Are you asking me to show you how to waltz?"
As it turns out, it went exactly where he was expecting.
"You'll have to bleep that, but there's no other way to say it," he added.
After shooting the highly anticipated sci-fi film for five months in Budapest, Gosling said the two actually started to become good friends, with Ford even opening up to him a few times.
"I asked him one night who he got his sense of humor from, his mother or his father. He just stared me down and said, 'Sears,'" Gosling recounted, showing off his impression of his co-star’s gruff voice. "He said, 'I got it from Sears, and they were closing and I didn't have time to shop around, so I just had to grab one.'"
Earlier in the day, Gosling and his La La Land co-star, Emma Stone – who raved to ET about Gosling’s dance moves earlier this week -- got their hands and feet immortalized in concrete in front of the iconic Chinese Theater in Hollywood. While the tradition is a Tinseltown honor, Gosling said the whole thing is still a bit awkward.
"What [the photographers] want is for you to get down on all fours and the look up and smile," he joked to Kimmel of the uncomfortable pose. "It's not really your first choice of positions that you want to be in."
