Ryan GoslingRyan Gosling saved cash at the start of his career by moving into a trailer park.
The star made his acting debut when he was just 12 on Disney's variety show "The Mickey Mouse Club" alongside Britney Spears, Justin Timberlake and Christina Aguilera.
But far from enjoying the lap of luxury, Gosling was actually living in a cramped mobile home near the series' Orlando, Florida, set.
Gosling tells talk show host David Letterman, "All the girls in my class were auditioning (for The Mickey Mouse Club), so I did too. Somehow I got on. I went (to Orlando) with my mom and we moved into a trailer park called Yogi Bear park."
