Ryan Gosling Devised horrific death for movie mom

Ryan-Gosling-2013 It was Ryan Gosling’s idea to kill off Kristin Scott Thomas’ character in new movie Only God Forgives in such a bizarre way. Kristin plays Ryan’s mom and when they started making the movie it wasn’t clear if she would live or die at the end. Gosling had an idea how and suggested it to director Nick Cassavetes and he loved it.

The actor said:  “Nick said, ‘I think she should die. What do you want to do? When you see your dead ma, do you want to cry, laugh? What do you want to do?’ As kind of a joke, I said, ‘Why don’t I cut her open and look at her womb?’ and he was like, ‘Cool, is that what you want to do? Ok we’ll do that!’ Then he called the effects guy and they got a pig’s stomach from the butcher and that’s what we did.”

kristin-scott-thomasScott Thomas says it all came as a bit of a shock. “We changed so much. I mean I got to Bangkok and suddenly I was gonna die in the end! We didn’t really have a satisfactory exit for Crystal and I was totally unprepared for that. Some people have interpreted that as reclaiming your identity and other people have seen it as sexual and you keep going on about penetrating your mother,” she said.
