Yesterday it was announced that Ryan Gosling dropped out from Peter Jackson's "Lovely Bones" due to creative differences. Sources told the L.A. Times that Ryan was too fat and ugly for the role. When 26-year-old Ryan got the part he told Peter that he was planning to get fat and grow some face pubes in order to look the part of an older, grieving father.
A source said that Peter was into it, but when Ryan showed up to work he "was still expecting some movie star allure — not paunch and a beard."
Another source told Page Six that he was also fired, because he was a nightmare to work with. "Ryan cut his own hair, and was fighting with wardrobe. He was so demanding . . . Peter booted him two days before filming started."
36-year-old Mark Wahlberg replaced him at the last minute.
Now that's a Hollywood twist. Getting replaced by someone older? It's usually the other way around. Peter Jackson used to be a fatass, so he probably didn't want Ryan around. Ryan was probably going to bring Twinkies and shit on the set and Peter doesn't need the temptation!
