Ryan Gosling had to put on serious weight for his part in the movie version of hit book The Lovely Bones – but he overcooked it and eventually lost the role.
He was ditched in favor of Mark Wahlberg after deciding to get porky by downing melted ice-cream instead of water when he fancied a drink.
He told ShortList magazine: “I think the hardest thing I did was gain 50lb in a few months.
“Just in my own world, that was pretty awful.
“I stopped drinking water and instead melted pints of Häagen-Dazs and drank that when I was thirsty.”
