Barbie and Ken
If you’ve been hiding under a rock for the past year or two, you might not be aware that Margot Robbie and Gosling will co-star as none other than Barbie and Ken in the upcoming, eagerly awaited live-action film, Barbie. As if having the opportunity to work with someone as amazing as Robbie wasn’t a gift in and of itself, Gosling has claimed that he was given gifts every day while on the set of the movie.
In an interview with Vogue, Ryan Gosling described what it was like to work with the Australian actor Margot Robbie and how he came up with his version of Ken.
He said in jest at first, “It would be very un-Ken of me to talk about Ken,” but subsequently said Robbie helped him develop the persona.
Every day while we were filming, she left a pink gift from Barbie to Ken with a pink ribbon. They were all connected to the beach. like a sign that reads, “Pray for surf,” or puka shells. Ken works at the beach, after all,” Gosling continued.
“I never really understood what that meant. But I got the impression that by giving Ken these things, she was trying to make Ken understand.
He also acknowledged that he never imagined himself playing the part, but he is pleased with how it turned out. Ken wasn’t on my bucket list. Of course, I don’t have a bucket list, so I figured I’d give it a chance,” he acknowledged.
Earlier, the actor told Jimmy Fallon that Barbie’s screenplay was “the best script” he had ever read before going on to say to Variety that he felt like he was “seeing” himself in the part. “I believe that many Kens will feel validated by this. It must be done for the Kens. The Kens don’t play with anyone.
Helen Mirren’s voiceover
Helen Mirren’s voiceover said, “Barbie has a great day every day.” “Barbie only makes Ken’s day wondering if she looks at him.”
After receiving emails from fans asking that Barbie find a boyfriend, Mattel released the first Ken doll in 1961.
Greta Gerwig, the film’s director, stated that “Barbie was invented first.”
Ken was created to bolster Barbie’s standing in society and the world after Barbie. The creation myth in Ge is not like that kind of creation narrative.
Margot Robbie tried “animal work” to find her version of Barbie. She has used this method in earlier well-known films like Babylon and I Tonya, assuming the characteristics of an octopus and honey badger for Nellie and a pit bull and Mustang for Tonya.
Unfortunately, the “animal work” didn’t do much to help Robbie adjust to her blonde-haired, blue-eyed, and pink-obsessed lead part in Barbie; yes, she attempted a flamingo, but regrettably, it didn’t take flight.
Margot Robbie decided to seek the advice of the film’s director Greta Gerwig, who forwarded her a podcast episode of This American Life “about a woman who doesn’t introspect.”
It didn’t take Robbie and Gerwig long to affirm that ‘Barbie energy’ is someone who is ‘impossibly gorgeous, but you don’t hate her for being that beautiful, because she’s so honestly sincere, and she’s so joyfully friendly, that it’s almost silly.
Barbie Lovers Reaction
As if social media users didn’t already have enough to look forward to, Barbie lovers have flocked to Twitter to thank Margot Robbie for giving Gosling a gift to help him find his Ken.
One Twitter user commented, “She’s slowly turning him gay,” to which another retorted, “She’s a queen for that.”
“This is what Jared Leto did, but for normal people,” said a third.
Another person said, “Finally a normal display of method acting.”
And finally, resolved: “An iconic pair already. Their thoughts, ugh.
The actress talked about how her production company, LuckyChap, finally got the long-discussed project off the ground and how Robbie helped convince Greta Gerwig to write it (along with her partner, Noah Baumbach) and direct it for the magazine’s summer issue cover story.
“We naturally want to respect the 60-year history of this brand, but we also have to accept that not everyone likes Barbie. Margot Robbie In actuality, aren’t only uninterested in Barbie,” stated Margot Robbie. “They vehemently despise Barbie and don’t like Barbie. We have to figure out how to say that.
