John Stamos was a big Disney fan. But they realized there was something wrong with it – until they met Ryan Gosling at a dinner party.
Stamos talks about Keke Palmer moment baby, it’s keke palmer podcast. The host herself is a big Disney fan, so she felt their vibe.
The actor admitted that his Disney skepticism stemmed from career concerns.
“Who would take my Mickey Mouse stuff seriously? I have to distance myself from it.”
Enter Ryan Gosling. When they met at a group dinner, Gosling immediately brought up their mutual passion.
“He was like, ‘Oh, you’re a Disney fan, right?'” Stamos remembered. “I say yes. He goes, ‘I’m obsessed. I’m a Disney adult, I go there by myself and I wear headphones. I go on the rides. I have my mixtape.'”
A light went out for Stamos.
“I go, ‘Yeah, me too. I’m a Disney guy too,'” he said. “So that kind of turned the corner for me.”
Palmer recalled how Disney reminded her of fond memories from her childhood.
Stamos agreed, and said that going through the gates at Disneyland is like a “great escape”.
He said, “I had a good, happy childhood and I’m sure you did too, so I wasn’t running away from anything.” “But I think it really defines who I am as an artist, as a human being, I think, because it was just so full of love and optimism, happiness. You go through the turnstiles , and I think that’s what Mr. Disney wanted you to feel, but the rest just goes away.
