Justin Disses Ryan

Justin Timberlake called out Ryan Gosling on his struggling actor image while totally ruining the Oscar-nominated actor's street cred.

In an interview with Jimmy Fallon for GQ magazine, Justin Timberlake suggests that Ryan Gosling's struggling actor image might not be all it's cracked up to be and that the actor spins a bit of a yarn to appear more bohemian.

When Fallon asked Timberlake about a rumor that Gosling slept on his couch during their Mickey Mouse Club days, the singer responded, "So he tried to make it seem like he was bohemian even back then?"

Fallon then said, "Definitely, man. He said he was struggling and you helped him out," before Timberlake attempted to throw Gosling under the bus and confirm the truth behind his real story.

He said, "Ryan's mom had to stay back in Canada and my mom was his guardian for a year so he could come down and be on the show. But Gosling got his own bed. He didn't sleep on the couch. He said that?"

Timberlake added, "I'm picturing a ten-year-old Gosling bumming Marlboro Reds off some bum, growing hipster facial hair…"

Fallon then quipped, "All I got is this one pair of Underoos, man! I got nothing, man!"

Well, it looks like the former boy-bander is envious of his old friend's street cred. Gosling has been nominated for an Academy Award and is critically praised in pretty much everything he does, unlike Timberlake, who receives tepid reviews but is still desperately trying to pretend he's a serious actor even though he hasn't been in a movie that was a hit.

Besides, it's a pretty low move to call someone else out in the media like that. It looks like Gosling just threw Timberlake's "friends forever" necklace in the gutter. Bromance off.

If some millionaire movie star is cultivating some fake image for 'street cred', they SHOULD be called out. This whole bohemian millionaire movie star image was already old when it first started. Save the acting for the movies, guys.

Gosling may try hard for the actor cred and I was certainly dubious of him to begin with but in the past year he has been absolutely killing it. Blue Valentine, Crazy,Stupid,Love, The Ides of March and Drive and he has been the standout in all these. I would challenge anyone to list a better year for an actor. JT has been in Yogi Bear, Friends with Benefits, Bad Teacher and In Time. It almost makes me laugh just typing that compared to the year Gosling had. Side Note: As a straight average male Gosling makes me completely jealous - he has the perfect style, looks, talent and appeal.

Hahaha Angela, how could I forget Prince??? Greeth are you really trying to downplay Ryan's movie career. If you don't know, you better ask somebody about OSCAR nominated Gosling. JT was not the star of Social Network and could have easily been replaced. JT is getting props for acting cause he's a singer trying to do it. That will soon go away, especially if he continues acting like he did in IN TIME. Straight comedy. As for Gosling trying Too hard....and JT doesn't ??? JT is the original imitator and changes how he talks to what he thinks based on what he's working on or what is hot.

Greeth, The Social Network was a hit, but not because of Timberlake. He was the weakest part of the film. Being more famous doesn't mean anything if you don't have critical acclaim, which Timberlake has been dying for since he became a solo artist and now an actor. Yaya, Hey, don't forget Prince, lol. Ryan is now apart of the Timberlake bus.

Uh...The Social Network was a big hit. Plus, Ryan has never been in a big hit either. Why would he be jealous? Justin is far more famous. Plus,Gosling DOES seem like a try-hard.

I've never even heard Ryan mention JT. I wonder if JT is upset that Biel talked about really wanted to do The Notebook LOL. JT seems to always have his panties on a wad over somebody. Ryan welcome to the world of Britney, Janet, NSYNC lol
