Justin Timberlake sat down for an interview with Ellen DeGeneres earlier this week (the interview airs Thursday), and he chatted with Ellen about his early days with Ryan Gosling!

GoslingEllen230.jpgThe two were close, Justin reveals, while both were cast members on Disney's The Mickey Mouse Club. The two were around age 10, Timberlake says, when " ... his mother had to keep her job in Canada the second year that we were on the television show and my mom was his guardian for like 6 months. So we actually lived together when we were that age."

And JT described the rebellious times the two had:

    "We thought we were so cool ... We stole a golf cart ... but meanwhile, you know what it’s like on a back lot. There’s just golf carts everywhere. I was like, 'What you want to do thug?' And he (Ryan) was like, 'I don’t know, 'cuz,' …because that’s definitely how we talked. ... I was like, 'I don’t know man; I’m in the mood for some vanilla.' He was like; 'I’m in the mood for some chocolate.' So we went and got milk shakes."

JT and Ryan -- kid criminals!
