Michelle Williams & Ryan Gosling’s ‘Blue Valentine’ Weight Gain Challenge

Rarely will you hear and actor talk about wanting to gain weight, but that’s just what Michelle Williams and Ryan Gosling wanted to do for their roles in Blue Valentine.

“She ended up winning. She gained about 15, 16 pounds. He gained 14,” the film’s director, Derek Cianfrance, told People at Monday’s Gotham Independent Film Awards. “Michelle was eating a pint of ice cream for breakfast and dinner and avocado sandwiches all day. She wanted to do it. She talked about her character having a certain self-hatred.”
