Ryan Gosling thought ballet was too girly and quit, but later regretted his decision.

Gosling talked about his ballet experience and expressed his regrets for quitting. According to him, he found it too girly. But looking back, he wished that he had continued it.

"I had been training [in ballet], but never got to the point where I was comfortable with it," Gosling, 36, told Us Weekly. "It was a struggle for me. I had an option to do ballet when I was a kid, but thought it was too girly. So I didn't spend the time on it that I should have. But I really wish that I had because it can bring such a benefit to your life."

Although he regretted his decision after quitting ballet, the "La La Land" actor admitted on "Jimmy Kimmel Live" in 2011 that he still takes classes occasionally as an adult. "I take like a class, like a public class," Gosling confessed. "I'm terrible. Everyone is good except for me … I'm so bad at it and unflexible that they have to bring out a special barre when we do the barre work part of the class."

"The Notebook" actor likewise revealed how fatherhood has changed him for the better. In fact, he considers his being a parent as the best experience in his life. Gosling has two daughters with partner Eva Mendes, 3-year-old Esmeralda and 16-month-old Amada.

Gosling also shared that he has a pet dog that has been with him when he was just 18 or 19. Since then, his four-legged friend has been with him on every film set. Prior to being a dad, his dog has changed his life. In fact, the "Crazy, Stupid, Love" star could not imagine his life without his dog.

"To be honest, I'm not sure he is a dog," Gosling said about his pet. "When I got him from the pound, the people there told me he wouldn't weigh more than 20 pounds, but he's grown to 85 pounds. He feels more like the dragon from 'The Never Ending Story' to me."

In related news, Gosling is part of the upcoming flick "Blade Runner 2049" where he plays the character of Officer K. Watch the trailer below:
