Michelle Williams - Williams & Gosling Played Man And Wife Before New Film Started Shooting

MICHELLE WILLIAMS and RYAN GOSLING prepared to play man and wife in new movie BLUE VALENTINE by setting up home together.
The two stars co-habitated before filming started and were told to turn an empty house into a dream home.
Williams explains, "We did everything but share a marital bed. We spent the days in the house and went back to our separate homes to sleep. The director (Derek Cianfrance) drove us to this house one day and it was a complete blank slate and he said, 'Make it a home!'
"So we were allowed to make decisions how to decorate it. We went to a Sears portrait studio and took our picture as a family and hung them on the wall. We grocery shopped, we cooked, we cleaned, we did the dishes. We took out the trash, we picked up the toys. We took naps, we made home movies. We made memories as a couple and as a family."
But the time to two stars spent together wasn't all fun.
Williams adds, "We also learned how to fight with each other and what we didn't like about each other. It was about creating the tension that lives in a household where divorce is looming."
But she admits she grew very fond of her co-star - and loved being 'married' to him in the film: "I still feel attached... and I couldn't take off my wedding ring for two weeks after filming wrapped. I was in mourning and I didn't want a divorce! I still have my wedding ring, by the way."
Gosling also loved playing house with his co-star - he even insisted on living on the meagre wages their characters in the film would have earned.
He tells WENN, "Michelle and I lived in the house that our characters lived in. We celebrated Christmas and birthdays and we had a budget based on how much our characters made in their jobs for grocery shopping. We had to make compromises financially for me to have cigarettes and for her to have whatever she needed."
