TheDailyBeast: Stars Who Gained Weight for Roles

6 of 10

Ryan Gosling, 'The Lovely Bones' (60 lbs.)

While most actors gain kudos or awards in recognition for gaining extreme amounts of weight for a role, Ryan Gosling got fired. Yes, the Oscar-nominated actor with the pinup looks put on 60 pounds after he was cast in Peter Jackson’s "The Lovely Bones," because he thought it would service his character, grieving dad Jack Salmon. “We had a different idea of how the character should look,” Gosling told The Hollywood Reporter. “I really believed he should be 210 pounds.” To accomplish this task, Gosling drank melted cartons of Häagen Dazs ice cream, but when he showed up on set, Jackson was unimpressed and ultimately replaced Gosling with Mark Wahlberg. “Then I was fat and unemployed,” said Gosling.
