Michelle Williams put on 15 pounds for her role in the upcoming film, Blue Valentine.
Michelle Williams and Ryan Gosling, who star in Blue Valentine, found themselves competing to see who could gain more weight for their roles.
The film’s director, Derek Cianfrance, told People, “She ended up winning. She gained about 15, 16 pounds. He gained 14. 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.”
