Michelle Williams Packed On 15 Lbs Due To Her Character’s “Self-Hatred”



Ugh, would you look at those heifers?! Just kidding! These two are so gorgeous and perfect, it’s like we died and woke up in Beautiful People Heaven. Apparently while shooting their new film Blue Valentine, Ryan Gosling and Michelle Williams got into some pretty fierce competition to see who could pack on the most pounds…and Michelle won! “She gained about 15, 16 pounds. He gained 14,” said Blue Valentine director, Derek Cianfrance. “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.” Clearly! Why else would you eat delicious ice cream morning, noon and night if it wasn’t because you hated yourself? Or because you love ice cream?

So how did someone with the bone structure of a wood nymph gain another 1/5 of her body weight? “She ate that [Purely] Decadent stuff made with coconut milk. Supposedly the coconut milk, the oil, has a lot of fat in it, and it’s hard for your body to break it down.” Oh, so maybe her character really did hate herself. We’d personally have to lose a lot of self-esteem before we switched over to eating coconut fat. [Photo: Getty Images]
