Steve Carell Calls Ryan Gosling's '80s Look in The Big Short a 'Creep Show'
Steve Carell clearly wasn't a fan of Ryan Goslings look in the film
Steve Carell is not a fan of the arrogant-’80s-banker look.
“When Ryan Gosling came out of hair and makeup for the first time, I told him, ‘never look like that again,'” Carell says.
In the film, the two actors play Wall Streeters who are among a small group of financial experts who see the 2008 real-estate crash coming and win big when they go up against the big banks.
While Carell went for a lighter mop-top in the role, Gosling took his transformation to the next level, sporting a questionable tan and dark, slicked-back hair.
“It was perfect for the movie, really bad for him as a human being,” Carell adds, laughing.
The two first worked together in Crazy, Stupid, Love in 2011, and have remained close friends – so close in fact, that Carell has no problem telling Gosling exactly what he thinks.
“It’s a creep show,” he says.
And while it may not be his best look, let’s be honest, Gosling never looks bad.
