Cole (to Ryan): The Lovely Bones, you were gonna to do that one and it didn’t happen…
Ryan: We just had wildly different ideas about what the film should be and I’m just an actor, it’s none of my business, it’s the director’s movie. But if you can’t get on board with that vision then you’ll be secretly sort of sabotaging it. And I didn’t want to be that.
Stephen: How did that come about? Did you say something to Peter or did he say something to you?
Ryan: I was 150 lbs. when he hired me and I showed up on set 210 lbs. We had a different idea of how the character should look. I really believed he should be 210 lbs. I was melting Häagen-Dazs and drinking it when I was thirsty. And I really believed in it and I was excited about it. I showed up and they said, ‘You look terrible’ and I said, ‘I know! Isn’t it great?’. They said, ‘No, it’s not. Hit the treadmill’. I just showed up and had gotten it wrong. Then I was fat and unemployed. (x)
