While rare footage of a young Ryan Gosling at a ward talent show went viral years ago, tipping off most of his fans that the star grew up Mormon, Gosling hasn't been as vocal about his childhood as some celebrities. However, he did tell The Guardian in 2007 about his Mormon upbringing, "We were brought up pretty religious . . . My mother admits it: She says, you were raised by a religious zealot. She's different now, but at the time, it was a part of everything—what they ate, how they thought."
