18-Year-Old Ryan Gosling's Awkward Pick-Up Lines Will Make You Swoon

Ryan Gosling fans most commonly know him as one of the Internet's best feminist meme or Eva Mendes' boo, but it turns out that there's a whole vintage treasure trove of Gosling to be enjoyed.

In honor of the actor's 34th birthday earlier this week, Entertainment Tonight released a Youtube video of their very first interview with Gosling in 1998. The then-18-year-old actor was training for his television role as the star "Young Hercules," and was far from becoming the household name he is today.

In the interview, Gosling says he wants to date all his fans (aw) and talks about struggling to pick up girls. He says "Anyone who wants to go out with me can come out with me! I'm not picky!" He then very charmingly asks the person interviewing him "I don't know why we gotta play this game. Let's just get married. You wanna?" Surprisingly, he gets shut down.

Young Gosling would probably be pleased to know that, at age 34, he'd have a beautiful pregnant girlfriend, a majorly successful career, and a bathroom in a sushi restaurant dedicated to his face.
