He told the Mirror that the 31-year-old singer was a sweetheart, the girl next door and lived right above him.
The 32-year-old actor asserted that Spears was the little girl that he used to play basketball and spin the bottle with.
When Sunday Times Style Magazine asked Gosling if he was still in touch with Spears, he said “not really” but did meet up with her at some events where both of them were invited.
He said that it was similar to running into someone from elementary school.
