“Love & Mercy,” a biopic focusing on Beach Boys guru BRIAN WILSON, ran into trouble when star JOHN CUSACK – who doesn’t even look like the singer – refused to gain the weight needed to portray Wilson after he packed on the pounds and spiraled downhill into a swamp of drugs and alcohol.

Execs were shocked, says my on-set source, when Cusack turned up looking fit as a fiddle – then even had the nerve to laugh it off, saying he’d been dating a hot yoga instructor and didn’t want to turn her off by being bloated.

Bull Crap Alert: When you see John’s body straining against his shirts, remember that’s really not John under there, it’s foam padding.
