Eating too much ice cream, specifically for the cause of putting on weight to be a better fit for the lead character in an adaptation of The Lovely Bones, led to Ryan Gosling losing out on the role to Mark Wahlberg. “It was awful trying to put on 50lb in a short time. I had to gulp Häagen-Dazs instead of water whenever I was thirsty,” said Ryan while talking to ShortList magazine.
However, Ryan has got over the fiasco and is back to the leanness that makes him so desirable and for which he has been famous for so long. Referring to the idea of gaining weight, Ryan commented that he found it all pointless and he had a lot more to say regarding his not so pleasant experience with mindless weight gain for a role he didn’t get to do eventually.
As per Perez Hilton, he mentioned, “You hit the gym to tone up your muscles, and for this you generally lift heavy things. But actually the muscle is just accomplishing the task of lifting heavy thing up! After some time, the muscles develop the habit of not doing as much useful work, but demand a lot of care, barring which they fall back to the previous state.” Ryan said that he’d rather invest time in something more sedate, such as knitting.
