Ryan Gosling tells Jimmy Kimmel he wasn't given a job in his mom's wedding, so he sat among the other guests, which included some "wonderful, older Italian women."
Ryan Gosling recently traveled to Italy to watch his mom walk down the aisle. She married an Italian, so the guests were -- well -- as you'd expect.
When the actor stopped by "Jimmy Kimmel Live" Wednesday night, he spilled on the memorable experience. Sadly, Gosling told the comedian he wasn't given a job in the wedding, so he sat among the other guests, which included some "wonderful, older Italian women."
"He's Roman, so I got to meet all of his Roman family," Gosling explained. "And there was a lot of -- during the service -- these wonderful older Italian women just whispering to me about food."
"In what way?" Kimmel asked before Gosling went into character.
"So at one point, this one woman said, 'There's a tortellini in the freezer,'" Gosling said in his best Italian accent. "And later on, almost towards the vows, another woman said, 'There's a smoked mozzarella in the fridge.' And then another woman went, 'It's from Naples.'"
"Did you ever get any of that smoked mozzarella?" Kimmel asked.
"Yeah, it was like an angel crying on your tongue," Gosling quipped.
Kimmel then asked the actor if had been "swarmed" by paparazzi or fans while he was abroad. Gosling said he hadn't.
"One lady said she'd seen me in a film, and then she said, 'Why you no say nothing?'" he joked, again in his best Italian accent.
The actor also gushed about his two baby girls -- Esmeralda, 4, and Amada, 2 -- who he shares with partner Eva Mendes. He told Kimmel that, because of his very convincing role playing astronaut Neil Armstrong in "First Man," his daughters think he's a real-life astronaut.
It all started when the girls stopped by the set to watch their dad shoot a scene.
"They came on this day where I was shooting a launch scene, so I was in a space suit and pretending to launch," Gosling explained. "I think they think I'm an astronaut now. My oldest said the other day, she pointed to the moon and she was like, 'That's where you work, right?'"
