    Ryan Gosling regrets giving up on ballet

    The 36-year-old actor took the classical dance lessons when he was younger and gave up because he thought it was "too girly", but now wishes he'd continued with his training because of the "benefit" the exercise could have had on his life.


    He explained to the October issue of The Red Bulletin: "I had been training [in ballet], but never got to the point where I was comfortable with it. 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."

    It might not be the end for Ryan's ballet dreams though, as back in 2011 hes said during an appearance on 'Jimmy Kimmel Live' that he still takes the occasional adult class.

    The 'La La Land' actor said at the time: "I take like a class, like a public class. 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."

    Meanwhile, Ryan - who has two daughters, Esmeralda, three, and Amada, 16 months, with his wife Eva Mendes - also spoke to The Red Bulletin about fatherhood, dubbing it the "greatest thing" to ever happen to him.

    He said: "First of all, I'm a father. That changes you in every way - for the better. It's the greatest thing that has ever happened to me.

    "Also, I have a dog that I've owned since I was 18 or 19, and he's been on every film set with me and been around since my life became something completely different. It's hard for me to imagine my life without him. To be honest, I'm not sure he is a dog. When I got him from the pound, the people there told me he wouldn't weigh more than 20 pounds, but he's grown to 85 pounds. He feels more like the dragon from 'The Never Ending Story' to me."
