3 Males Celebrities, Including Ryan Gosling, Who Do Ballet

Posted by Katie F. on December 14th, 2011

Ryan Gosling has a new, unexpected hobby – he has started taking ballet lessons in his free time. Gosling isn’t preparing for a movie role and is instead taking classes just because he wants to learn. His instructor says the actor really loves ballet and is doing great at it. Ryan has said before that he thinks celebrities should have hobbies outside of acting to keep them busy. According to him, the world “would be a much happier place” if famous people kept themselves occupied rather than doing drugs.

It may seem strange for someone like Ryan Gosling to take ballet. He has a successful acting career and no previous dance experience. There are, however, several other stars that have a background in ballet. Here are a few male celebrities who could give Ryan some pointers.

Robert Downey Jr.

Robert Downey Jr. began studying classical ballet at the age of 10. He later attended the Stagedoor Manor Performing Arts Training Center in New York.

Macaulay Culkin

Macaulay Culkin studied ballet at the School of American Ballet. He appeared in a show at the New York Philharmonic and in a production of The Nutcracker.
