If there’s one thing we’ve learned from Hollywood thus far is that nobody is irreplaceable. Here we have 12 major Hollywood stars who lost their big roles due to authority issues, alcohol or drug abuse (or both), or simply because they sucked at it.
1. Ryan Gosling
If you thought that Ryan Gosling was a perfect guy who can’t do anything wrong, well, you’re probably right.
But, back in 2009, the actor was reportedly fired from Peter Jackson’s drama fantasy hit “The Lovely Bones”.
First reports said that Gosling was simply being too demanding for the film crew, but several months later the actor opened up about the actual reason why he ended up being fired from this movie.
Apparently, he was too fat at the time. Gosling decided to make a transformation he thought was fitting for his role – he grew beard and gained around 60 pounds. Jackson simply didn’t like this transformation and was not on the same page with Gosling, which is why the actor ended up being on none of the pages, of the script that is.
