After having played a Jewish skinhead and two teenage murderers, actor Ryan Gosling doesn't see himself as a star. As a child he had no desire to act, but at the age of 13, he left his small Canadian hometown to audition for "The Mickey Mouse Club," in which he eventually starred alongside such future household names as those of celebrities Justin Timberlake and Britney Spears. Even then he felt like the odd man out. He was dismissed from the song and dance numbers because, as he says with a laugh, "As soon as I got there, they realized that I had no talent, so they didn't ever use me really. I think they were trying to fill a Canadian quotient."
