Ryan Gosling's dancing credentials have been proven not only with his recent jiving in La La Land, but also this gem of a video from 1992 where he can be seen dedicating every fibre of his being to the rhythm.
Clearly, the man can move.
But it seems The Gos has a tortured past when it comes to shaking his stuff as he has revealed in an interview for the October issue of The Red Bulletin
"It was a struggle for me. I had an option to do ballet when I was a kid, but thought it was too girly. So I didn't spend the time on it that I should have. But I really wish that I had, because it can bring such a benefit to your life."
But being a dreamer, the 36-year-old clearly isn't content to give up on his hopes of nailing the perfect plié just yet, revealing in a 2011 appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live that he still sometimes takes classes.
"I take like a class, like a public class," he said. "I'm terrible. Everyone is good except for me… I'm so bad at it and unflexible that they have to bring out a special barre when we do the barre work part of the class."
We imagine he's going in with a plastic moustache and pair of fake glasses or those classes would get very full very fast.
