Ryan Gosling was suppose to play Soarise Ronan's father in The Lovely Bones, even though he's a little young, but instead, Mark Wahlberg got the job. So, what happened? Ryan said he was too fat for the part.

During an actor's round table, Ryan explained to The Hollywood Reporter why he didn't end up starring in Peter Jackson's The Lovely Bones.

“We had a different idea of how the character should look. I really believed he should be 210 pounds,” Ryan said of how he showed up to set weighing 60 pounds heavier than when he was hired. “I’d gotten it wrong. Clearly. And then I was fat and unemployed.”

And so the part went to Mark, but it seemed to work out for the best. Ryan at the time was only 26 and Mark was 11 years older than him, making him a better fit to play Soarise's father.

Last year, Peter told Entertainment Weekly, “We take responsibility for that because we kept saying to Ryan, ‘No, no, it’ll be fine,’ when he said he was too young.”
