In CLASSIC CANADA news:
Ancestry.com’s genealogical genies have discovered that Justin Bieber shares blood with a cadre of Canadian stars including Belleville, Ontario native Avril Lavigne, Québécois Celine Dion, and Ryan Gosling…The links are distant, but they’re there. As the Associated Press summarizes, Bieber and the Crazy, Stupid, Love star are 11th cousins once removed. (Via)
Our poor sweet baby baby baby goose. UPROXX was able to snag an exclusive interview with Gosling while he was taking a break from shooting Untitled Terrence Malick Project with Christian Bale, Michael Fassbender, Rooney Mara, Natalie Portman, Cate Blanchett, and other members of the greatest cast ever about his cousin.
Hello. Would you mind stating your name for the camera first?
Thank you. So, Mr, Gosling, what are your thoughts on Justin Bieber being your cousin?
Really? You haven’t heard? That’s surprising.
Well, the story’s made quite the bang on the Internet.
Yes, Mr. Gosling. Anyways, according to some ancestry website…
I’m very flattered, especially on National Coming Out Day, but I’m afraid I must decline.
OK, now it sounds like you’re trying to write a Justin Bieber song.
Or not. Where were we again? That’s right. You and the Beebs are 11th cousins, once removed.
Not a fan of his music, I take it?
Well, you’re also distantly related to Avril Lavigne. Thoughts on her?
I guess you approve, then. What’s your favorite song of hers?
Hm. I don’t know that one. What album —
You were talking to me again, weren’t you? OK, sure. Where do you — please don’t take off your shirt.
Now that I feel emasculated, let’s stop here. It’s been a good chat, Mr. Gosling. You’re a handsome guy.
So, yeah, Canada.
