Ryan Gosling is currently knee-deep in press for his new film First Man, and like any good Hollywood star, he stopped by The Ellen Show to promote it. However, during his Ellen episode, Britney Spears decided to make a surprise appearance to announce she has an even bigger announcement coming on October 18th, 2018 (hmmm) and it turned into an All-New Mickey Mouse Club reunion. If you recall, Spears and Gosling were members of the show during its early ’90s revival, along with Christina Aguilera, Justin Timberlake, and JC Chasez.

Unfortunately, the two did not cross paths on-camera at Ellen but linked up backstage for a photo-op. That said, it sounds like they had a chance to reconnect backstage, which Gosling admitted was the first time they’d seen each other since they filmed the show as kids.

DeGeneres asked the actor what he remembered about his time on the show, and he admitted that he always thought Spears was “freakishly talented.”

Also, if you’ve never seen footage of Gosling from his days on The Mickey Mouse Club, you’re in for a treat. Check out Gosling, Timberlake, and Chasez’s epic R&B performance here. You’re welcome.
