Ryan Gosling is possibly one of modern pop culture’s most iconic figures owing to the range of roles he played as well as his presence in meme culture across various social media platforms. Having started as a child actor in the 90s, Gosling got a big break and became a known face in Hollywood through the romantic drama, The Notebook, in which he starred alongside Rachel McAdams. However, his movies that came much later, including Drive, Blade Runner 2049, and La La Land, made him an iconic celebrity on the internet.

The popular “Ryan Gosling is literally me,” meme featuring Gosling has consistently been all over the internet for a long time now. Most often, these memes feature the actor from the movie Drive or Blade Runner 2049 because of the distinct personalities that both the characters rock and the odd behavior that is more common than not. There has also been a relatability that men found in these characters, making the joke almost one that comments on masculinity.

The storm that the viral pictures of Ken from Barbie created, however, cannot be undermined. The internet was shaken by the stills that showed Gosling in a look that he had never seen before. Although the pictures gave off a contrary vibe to the other popular Ryan Gosling images, they managed to excite fans and create anticipation around the character and the film.

So we’ve got these three personalities that a lot of guys resonate with, so is this the third?” the fan asked him as the crowd erupted in excitement about what kind of an answer the actor would give.

You’ve got all three flavors there,” the Barbie star explained after he expressed that he came across someone on the internet who was asking if this had to be their new personality. The actor is also previously known for having expressed his love for the character and how Ken grew to become a popular character for the term ‘Kenergy’ to be inspired by him, at Variety‘s Hitmakers event.
