The movie "The Lovely Bones" is based on the bestselling book and is directed by Peter Jackson (Lord of the Rings trilogy, Kingkong). The cast includes Susan Sarandon, Rachel Weisz, and Mark Wahlberg(who took the place of another hottie, Ryan Gosling). And speaking of hotties, you guys will not believe how healthy and cool Peter Jackson looks lately.

People would cruelly compare Jackson to one of the Hobbit characters in the famous trilogy for his frumpy, stout figure. But it wasn't until the shooting of Kingkong that people started to notice the drastic weight loss. He only lost about 70 lbs. (32 kgs.) but the difference is so noticeable. He credits having a change of lifestyle to his weightloss, not some fad diet. Aside from that, he also says that shooting Kingkong took a toll on his body. And to top it all off, he went through laser eye surgery, to free himself from his dust-magnet glasses. Voila! A new and much improved Academy-award winning director. Keep it up!
