12 Most Inspiring Hollywood Fitness Transformations

We honor actors who took their parts—and their fitness—to the extreme.

What He Did: The Notebook heartthrob turned his slim build into the “photoshopped” physique that had actress Emma Stone (and millions of other women—including your girlfriend) swooning.

Why He Did It: Gosling pumped up to star in Crazy, Stupid, Love in 2011.

What He Ate: Despite a raging sweet tooth, Gosling disciplined himself to bananas and protein shakes.

His Workout: Gosling’s workouts stretched to two hours, four to five days per week. He focused on chest, shoulders, and core to create a consummate “player” physique.

Plus: Preparing for an upcoming role as a Muay Thai kickboxer has Gosling eating a diet of fish, rice, and green vegetables.

Gosling says: “After a while, they’re like pets because they [his muscles] don’t do anything useful. But you have to feed them and take care of them. Otherwise, they’ll go away.”
