You never knew who would sleep in the living room in the morning. ”

Michael told The Talks, “It’s tough when you get into show business and try to make good friends.

And finally, Justin Timberlake and Ryan Gosling
When they were at the Mickey Mouse Club together, Ryan had to move into Justin’s house because the show was filmed in the United States, but Ryan’s mother had to keep working in Canada.
