Movie role helped Ryan quit smok­ing

World tour will not come to Ar­gentina

7 Days in Dubai - - GLOBAL NEWS -

Ryan Gosling has given up smok­ing. The 35-year-old ac­tor de­cided to quit the nasty habit af­ter he un­ex­pect­edly gassed him­self on the lung-dam­ag­ing fumes while shoot­ing his new movie The Nice Guys, in which he por­trays chain-smok­ing pri­vate in­ves­ti­ga­tor Hol­land March. Speak­ing on ‘ The Kyle and Jackie O Show’ on Tues­day, he said: “I used to [smoke], but in this movie I smoked my­self out. I never want an­other cig­a­rette again! “It re­ally is the great­est way to quit - it’s hard to come by - you re­ally have to get a film where you have to smoke all the time, but I highly rec­om­mend it if you are try­ing to quit.” And smok­ing wasn’t the only bad habit the hunk was force to pick up for the movie as he was also ex­pected to play drunk. But he ad­mit­ted that to­wards the end he didn’t re­ally need to act as he and his co-star Rus­sell Crowe - who plays a con­tract killer - would reg­u­larly rock up to set hun­gover. Justin Bieber has been banned from Ar­gentina.

The 22-year-old singer says he won’t be bring­ing his Pur­pose tour to the South Amer­i­can coun­try af­ter au­thor­i­ties blocked him from per­form­ing there.

He tweeted: “Ar­gen­tinian be­liebers I would like noth­ing more than to bring the #pur­pose­tour there but the Ar­gen­tinian gov­ern­ment won’t al­low it. So sorry. If things were to change I would love to come but at this time I can­not. For ev­ery­one else in South Amer­ica I look for­ward to see­ing you (sic).”

Last year Justin was warned that he would be ar­rested if he en­tered the coun­try. Judge Al­bert Julio Banos al­legedly or­dered the ‘Boyfriend’ hit­maker’s “im­me­di­ate de­ten­tion” be­cause of a war­rant stem­ming from an in­ci­dent which took place in Buenos Aires in 2013.

His body­guards, Hugo Al­cides Hesny and Ter­rence Reche Smalls, were also al­legedly sub­ject to the same war­rant. Tom Hanks be­lieves be­com­ing a young fa­ther pre­vented him from get­ting hooked on al­co­hol and dab­bling in drugs. The 59-year-old ac­tor wel­comed his first child Colin with his ex-wife Sa­man­tha Lewes when he was just 21 and he’s con­vinced the re­spon­si­bil­ity he gained from it, af­ter just hit­ting adult­hood Pho­tog­ra­pher Diego Pen­soa ac­cused Justin’s body­guards of at­tack­ing him at a club in the coun­try’s cap­i­tal city. It was al­leged that Justin or­dered the at­tack and his war­rant came about be­cause he never an­swered ques­tions about the in­ci­dent be­fore leav­ing the coun­try. Prior to that in­ci­dent he was ac­cused by the Ar­gen­tine gov­ern­ment of des­e­crat­ing the coun­try’s flag by kick­ing it off stage when he was per­form­ing in Bueno Aires. Mean­while, it was re­cently claimed that Justin is on a “spir­i­tual mis­sion”. The singer had “an epiphany” re­cently, which led him to be­lieve that he needs to re­con­nect with re­li­gion and na­ture and dur­ing days off from his Pur­pose tour he has been spot­ted med­i­tat­ing in parks and en­joy­ing some solo strolls. A source said: “He be­lieves na­ture and re­li­gion - not con­cert venues and night­clubs - should be­come his life pri­or­i­ties.” him­self, stopped him from go­ing off the rails. Hanks said: “I’m lucky. I was in charge of off­spring at a very early age, so I didn’t have the lux­ury of be­ing able to get stoned a lot. And I never drank too much. I thought it was more fun just to be see­ing what was go­ing on. I did my share, but it didn’t be­come a habit.”
