“When I was about seven years old. I was in gymnastics class, and i was on these parallel bars that were about 6 feet off the ground. And I was standing on top of these bars, and the teacher was holding me by the ankles, and somehow or other she let go. And I was standing on this bar and I felt myself beginning to tip forward and I put my arms like this, and fell six feet to the ground.”

“Years later, When we do Crazy, Stupid, Love, I know that we’re gonna do the Dirty Dancing lift. I don’t know, however, that I have an internalized phobia of being lifted over someone’s head at the height of about 6 feet.”

The actress then asked Ryan Gosling what happened when they first tried the iconic lift, and he shared his experience in an extremely amusing manner.

“I never had this happen, but I imagine if a possum fell out of a tree and tried to scratch your eyes out, it would be something similar.”
