Ryan Gosling Was Fired From Lovely Bones

Posted on October 23, 2007

So, what's the real reason that Ryan Gosling left the film The Lovely Bones? According to Page Six, Ryan is a real diva and director Peter Jackson (The Lord of the Rings) couldn't stand him. So Peter fired Ryan two days into the shooting.

THOSE old "creative differences" are to blame for director Peter Jackson's firing of Ryan Gosling from "Lovely Bones." "Peter couldn't stand Ryan," said one source. Though Variety reported that Gosling had "stepped down" and was replaced by Mark Wahlberg, our source said, "Ryan cut his own hair, and was fighting with wardrobe. He was so demanding . . . Peter booted him two days before filming started." The flick is based on the best-selling novel by Alice Sebold. A rep for Gosling did not return calls.
After starring in the very odd Lars and the Real Girl, then breaking up with Rachel McAdams, Ryan is starting to get a reputation that's not great. But how bout Marky Mark taking the initiative and stepping into the role? We swear, he's the hardest working man in show business now. Hopefully, he and Peter Jackson will get along just fine.
