RYAN GOSLING has denied reports claiming he was fired from PETER JACKSON’s new
movie LOVELY BONES for his “demanding” nature, insisting he was just too young
for the role.
The 26-year-old was recently replaced by Mark Wahlberg, 36, in the lead role
of Jack Salmon, prompting speculation over Gosling’s abrupt departure.
Sources recently told the New York Post’s gossip column, PageSix, “Peter
couldn’t stand Ryan… He was so demanding. Peter booted him two days before
But Gosling refutes the claims and is convinced the Shooter star is a more
suitable choice for the character – a father whose life is turned upside down
when his young daughter is brutally raped and murdered.
Gosling tells Parade magazine, “The age of the character versus my real age
was always a concern of mine. Peter and I tried to make it work and ultimately
it just didn’t.
“I think the film is much better off with Mark Wahlberg in that role. Peter
Jackson is an incredible filmmaker and I’m here to tell you that he has things
up his sleeve that are going to blow peoples’ minds. I’m going to be the first
person in line to buy tickets.”
