Who Gave the Most Adorable Interview As a Young Teenager? DiCaprio? Gordon-Levitt? Gosling? Bale? Or Elijah?

The Hollywood Reporter dug it up initially, but there's a video of a very young Ryan Gosling -- right after having been accepted in the Mouseketeers -- floating around the Internet today, and it is adorable. How does it compare, however, with four other major stars today who were also cute child stars? Me? I give the nod to Gordon-Levitt, while DiCaprio was kind of a snot.

Joseph Gordon Levitt on "Late Night with Conan O'Brien" in 1998

Ryan Gosling on "Canada AM" in 1992

Leonardo DiCaprio on ReelRave in 1993

Elijah Wood on E! Entertainment in 1991

Christian Bale on E! Entertainment in 1995

    I don't know, Elijah was pretty dang cute.

  • SilverDeb

    I told everyone I knew that I wanted Elijah to be my son back then. He was so adorable!

  • Uriah_Creep

    Yeah, Leo was 18 or 19 by the time he did this interview, so he probably had a supermodel waiting for him off-stage. Little bastard.

  • Lee

    Awwww Christian Bale is so cute! DiCaprio reminds me of Justin Bieber - 'I'm sexy and I know it!'

  • Aaaawww! And lookit Christian Bale! Never had an upper lip but he was *adorable*!

  • nini

    poor leo, dreaming of the oscars since 1993..

  • annie

    I'm in no way surprised at how precious Elijah, JGL and Ryan (aboot!) were and still are. Nor am I surprised Leo was quite pleased with himself. Part of it was his being a total teen boy, and part is that he's got that vein of snot running through him.

  • jamie pants

    The rest are adorable...but I can't stop smiling when little Christian talks.

  • You can tell how important good parenting is for kids breaking in at that age. All these boys come across as very grounded and mature, for being boys. Not surprisingly that they've come through the hardest phase of growing up then.

    1. Gosling totally knew he was adorable, with that little swagger and smirk revealed alongside the genuine innocence of a Canadian kid.
    2. JGL is just a straightforward, fun kid.
    3. Leo has already pulled at least one supermodel by this point. He's already no longer a kid, but has some graciousness.
    4. "Oh, Sam!" Elijah, you just are Frodo.
    5. Christian sounds remarkably similar, both his voice and his words.

    Baby Bruno Mars for the win.

  • BWeaves

    Elijah Wood was a pro from age 5.

  • jo

    Wait, that Bale video can't be from 1995 ? ?

  • Gina

    No. In 1995 he would have been 19 - and he's not 19 in the video. Also, he's only talking about "Empire of the Sun", which was his first major role, IIRC, and that's from the late 80s.

  • The YouTube title says it's 1987, which makes way more sense.

  • FireLizardQueen

    DiCaprio was an old hat at the interview thing by the time this one came along and already had plenty of adoring fans, JGL seems like such a dork and he looks like he's trying way too hard. For me, Elijah Wood and Baby Goose are tied for most adorable.

  • annie

    But it's a sweet kind of trying too hard! Endearing and not fakey. DiCaprio knew the kinds of things he was supposed to say by then, but the way he tried not to laugh at his fan letters, etc....

  • FireLizardQueen

    True, it is endearing. It reminds me of what happens when you point a camera at most 12/13 year olds... they overact and try to impress you but it's still cute.

  • TherecanbeonlyoneAdmin

    JGL is wearing Birkenstocks. Your illusions are shattered.

  • Even Stevens

    That was almost a deal breaker for me. Almost.

  • TherecanbeonlyoneAdmin

    Also, I forgot that Canada had TV as far back as 92.

  • Gina

    There's a How I Met Your Mother joke in there somewhere.

  • TherecanbeonlyoneAdmin

    We had to go to the mall to watch it.

  • googergieger

    Christian Bale looks like a child serial killer. That is to say a child who also happens to serial kill.

  • Long_Pig_Tailor

    So kind of like a bowling alley lawyer?

    Come on, where my Ed peeps at? Holla?

    Is that the right use of "holla"? I assume not, because I am very white.

  • Lord Castleton

    This made my day. I'm as white as you are, apparently.

  • Natallica

    Gordon Levitt is adorable and I want teeny tiny Elijah Wood to be my son. But DiCaprio sent me in an upward spiral of swoon. Damn, he WERKED it!

  • F'mal DeHyde

    I felt the same way about Elijah Wood and I don't have a maternal bone in my body. So, so cute.
