Ryan Gosling Talks About the Time He Licked a ''Hairy Belly'' During ''Awful'' Turkish Massage

Of course it makes no sense, but the actor does a fantastic job explaining what happened

Massages are supposed to be relaxing, but that's not always the case.

Ryan Gosling has had the unfortunate experience of once dealing with a less-than-desirable massage that not only didn't relieve his tense muscles, but also ended up giving him a gross taste in his mouth (yeah, we're talking literally...).

During his appearance on The Graham Norton Show to promote his new flick The Nice Guys with co-star Russell Crowe, the now-father-of-two recalled an unpleasant Turkish massage—after being somewhat forced to share the funny story by the British talk show host.

"I don't know what it has to do with what we're talking about," a reluctant Gosling initially said, but Norton simply said, "It's a funny story, tell it."

And so he did.

Why Ryan Gosling Should Always (Always) Do Comedy

"I had an awful experience having a Turkish massage where this guy's idea of massage was to take one leg and the other arm, and try to connect it behind my back."

After visually illustrating how uncomfortable it was, Gosling revealed the best part of the story, "Well, his belly went in my mouth." Amid the laughs from the audience, Gosling continued to explain that it got even worse. "You know when you have something weird in your mouth… and your brain sends your tongue to figure out what it is?...My tongue was like, ‘What is that? It's a hairy belly!'"

Yep. There is a man out there who gives horrible Turkish massages, yet was lucky enough to get his stomach licked by Ryan Gosling. Sigh.
