Actor Ryan Gosling's female-focused upbringing and ballet lessons have left him thinking "like a girl."

The Drive star was brought up as the only boy in a house of women after his parents divorced, and he was home-schooled after his early brush with fame as a 'Mouseketeer' on the Disney Channel made him the target of bullies.

And he admits his reliance on his sister and his girly hobbies left him deeply in touch with his feminine side.

Gosling tells Britain's The Independent, "I think like a girl, I think. I was literally raised by my mother and my sister. And I just feel like I wouldn...

"Mad Men" star Christina Hendricks is adamant she has not had cosmetic surgery to boost her bust.

'Wanderlust': Song-By-Song with Gavin Rossdale

Gavin Rossdale
Some Days: I met someone from Fox in a grocery store who came up and asked if maybe I could write something for TV. It was nice because I love being commissioned. I must have been a dog in a previous life because I quite like someone throwing a ball and I have to fetch it. So I wrote the song for this TV show Drive. They had sixty songs already but felt they all missed the mark. It was a show about people on a journey, so I looked at it through my eyes and I wrote this song the next day. They loved it. I thought "Great – this song will make me a star like something on Grey's Anatomy." The...

Hoover High Class of '88 Showed Promising Sitcom Cast

Dance Til Dawn: 20 Years Later: The fall of 1988 threw a bunch of up-and-coming sitcom stars into the great mixing pot equalizer of a made-for-TV movie. It didn't matter who was already on top with their own shows (like Tracey Gold in Growing Pains); it didn't matter who was virtually unknown (As The World Turns' Brian Bloom); and it didn't even matter who was completely green (Chris Young): suddenly, they were quite literally thrust back into high school (quite literally, actually), where any trace of awkwardness was exploited and popularity was simply a state of mind.
