Prior to his role in Crazy, Stupid, Love, Ryan Gosling was well on his way to becoming a Hollywod sex symbol….albeit a skinny, sensitive Hollywood sex symbol.

For his role in CSL, Gosling trading in his sensitive, leading man persona for a chiseled, muscular “playa” style of body….and the ladies responded.

To train for the role, Gosling focused on bulking up his shoulders, abs and pecs…creating a lean beach body style of physique.

In addition to the modified bodybuilding workout, Ryan lived day after day on a diet of fruit & protein shakes.Which kinda sucks, but considering that he has cashed in big time on that body, maybe it wasn’t such a hardship after all.

  1. didn’t expect to see Michael Chiklis’ name on this list…but seriously…

    I have the utmost respect for all these actors and others that are able to transform themsleves like this, but one thing I often say to friends and family members who I disuss fitness/fat loss with: these actors are being paid-usually milliions of dollars-to make these transformations…also, I have ZERO doubt that at least half of them are using some combination of steroids/GH/???

  2. I really respect how deep some of them get into character. My question is from a health standpoint, are there any effects, maybe as they get to middle age, on their overall health specially for those who transform so drastically.
