Ryan Gosling Admits He Regrets Quitting Ballet

Ryan Gosling revealed in an interview that he wished he continued to take ballet lessons growing up. 

“I had been training [in ballet], but never got to the point where I was comfortable with it," the Canadian star said in an interview with 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.”

Gosling has been trying to get back into it, though. “I take like a class, like a public class, I’m terrible," he said. "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.”
