Well, this interview probably didn’t go according to plan.
Among other things, the actor said he’s never seen “West Side Story,” and he guessed that lyrics from “The Sound of Music” were from “Mary Poppins.”
In fairness, both movies starred Julie Andrews. Still ... come on, now.
”So this is basically an intervention,” Gosling joked at the end of the quiz. “It’s a musical intervention. And I needed it.”
In case Gosling wants to dive into the genre, he can check out the American Film Institute’s list of the “Greatest Movie Musicals Of All Time.” Since the actor said he’s already seen “Singin’ in the Rain,” he can start with film No. 2 on the list, which is, coincidentally, “West Side Story.”
Co-star Emma Stone, on the other hand, fared much better on the impromptu quiz.
