Ryan Gosling Was Originally Going to Play Saoirse Ronan's Dad in 'The Lovely Bones'

Saoirse Ronan turns around to pose while attending the launch of the Dublin Cinemagic and NPAS Industry Film Academy and Cinemagic Festival held at The Factory Studios on Monday (March 30) in Dublin, Ireland.

The night before, the 20-year-old actress stepped out for a screening of her new film Lost River during the Jameson Dublin International Film Festival.

The film was directed by Ryan Gosling and Saoirse recently opened up about working with him.

“The reason I wanted to work with Ryan was because I was almost working with him years ago. He was supposed to play my dad in The Lovely Bones. I met Ryan before he became a superstar and loved him – he’s the best, he’s the sweetest guy. He’s a good friend and a true artist,” Saoirse told the Irish Independent. “He lives in L.A. so whenever I’m there I would give him a call. We got a chance to hang out in Austin a few weeks ago which was brilliant as we hadn’t seen each other in a while so after the press [interviews] in the evenings we all got to hang out together. He’s just a really normal person and I hope he makes more movies in the future because I think he’s really gotten a taste for it now.”
