Peter Jackson To Ryan Gosling: “You’re Too Fat!”

Peter Jackson To Ryan Gosling: "You're Too Fat!"

Not quite.. But its a funny image, no? The Los Angeles Times is reporting similar reasons for Gosling’s exit from Jackson’s The Lovely Bones though, while The New York Post is saying it was because he “insisted” on cutting his own hair. Ryan Gosling, the diva?

Anyway.. The Guardian sums it up:

Reports are suggesting a number of probably quite spurious, but nevertheless highly amusing reasons for Ryan Gosling’s departure from the set of Peter Jackson’s The Lovely Bones. It had earlier been reported that Gosling walked out, to be replaced by Mark Wahlberg, due to “creative differences”. However the LA Times reckons Gosling was in fact replaced because he turned up weighing 20 pounds over his usual svelte weight, a condition Gosling had deliberately contrived in preparation for his role as well, presumably, a fat bloke. The New York Post gossip site PageSix.com, on the other hand, contends that Gosling was fired because he insisted on cutting his own hair, which sounds far more reasonable.
