Ryan Gosling's new flick is called "Crazy, Stupid, Love," and he doesn't seem to be too smart in real life either. Upon moving to New York City, a cruel friend told Gosling that a very 'New York' thing to do is to get a Turkish bath.

But while Gosling envisioned complete serenity, fanning palm leaves and the smell of incense wafting through wood-paneled corridors, he was instead met at the bathhouse by a large, sweaty, mostly naked Turkish man who proceeded to give him a rough and thorough scrub down.

"It's just a big hairy Turkish guy that washes you with a bar of soap," Gosling explained to a visibly disturbed Jimmy Fallon.

But the non-English speaking bather's skin-scraping washing wasn't the worst of it.

"He washed me for a while then I go on my front, you know, and then he tries to connect my right foot to my left arm ... and his belly goes in my mouth."

But being the curious actor he is, Gosling wasn't satisfied with just one taste of the Turkish belly and proceeded to subconsciously lick the man's torso once more to try to place the taste.

That is some kind of introduction to the Big Apple. Maybe, head to Google before taking your friends' advice next time, Gosling.
