Did you know that Ryan Gosling was once suspended from school? What for you might ask? It was for hurling steak knives at his classmates. What?!?!
The Drive star admits he got a little carried away after watching Rambo as a kid and his love for Sylvester Stallone's renegade landed him in big trouble. He explains, "When I first saw First Blood it put a spell on me and I thought I was Rambo. I even thought my face felt like Sylvester Stallone's face when I touched it.
"I went to school the next day and bought a Fisher Price kit and I put steak knives in there and I took them and threw them at all the kids during recess. I got suspended rightfully so and I'm sorry. I never did anything like that again."
The move prompted Gosling's parents to ban him from watching violent movies: "They put me on a leash and I could only watch Bible movies or National Geographic program, which by the way are very violent.
"I now fully understand the effect that movies can have and the kind of spell they can cast."
We're glad Ryan grew out of that phase. You can see him on the big screen again in Drive, which opens today. It's a fantastic movie if you happen to catch it.
