Barbie, directed by Greta Gerwig, is among the most hyped movies of the year. Margot Robbie will play the titular role, with Ryan Gosling portraying Barbie’s romantic lead, Ken, in the much-anticipated blockbuster. After teasing fans with Margot Robbie’s look launch in April, the filmmakers have now revealed Ryan Gosling’s appearance for the next flick. Here’s how wife Eva Mendes reacted to Gosling’s insane look:

Margot Robbie announced the live-action movie adaption of “Barbie” in July 2019, with Greta Gerwig and her partner Noah Baumbach co-writing the screenplay. Gerwig was later confirmed as the director of the film. The announcement came on the 60th anniversary of the famous blonde-haired doll. It will be released in cinemas on July 21, 2023. Robbie’s production business LuckyChap Entertainment will develop the film, in which she will appear as Barbie alongside Ryan Gosling’s Ken. Robbie admitted that the film “comes with a lot of baggage and a lot of nostalgic connections” to honor the doll’s legacy. “But with that come a lot of exciting ways to attack it,” Robbie said to British Vogue. “People generally hear ‘Barbie’ and think, ‘I know what that movie is going to be,’ and then they hear that Greta Gerwig is writing and directing it, and they’re like, ’Oh, well, maybe I don’t’”.

Ryan Gosling’s Ken not only looks like the real deal but he’s also groomed in a fashion that complements the film’s wacky tone. Ken’s name is scribbled on his underwear waistband, and his hair is bleached. Although this is a meme-worthy look, since Gosling has been a hunk for decades now, the people’s reactions are restrained.


One wrote, “Ryan Gosling is and always has been extremely hot”. One other said, “I’m so happy like how do they keep making such good things. You’d think they’d run out of incredible things to make but then Greta Gerwig is like actually I’m gonna direct a Barbie movie and Ryan Gosling will be ken. Just very good”. Another fan was way less excited and said, “am I the only person that thinks this Ryan Gosling and ken role is not a fit????”.

In a surprise display of emotion, Eva Mendes gushed over her husband Ryan Gosling, expressing her delight for his next live-action Barbie film. The actress, 48, shared a first-look shot of Ryan, as the famed Mattel Ken doll for the WB movie on Instagram on Wednesday. Eva raved about her spouse’s accomplishment in a post beside the photo, saying she was ‘so happy’ for fans to see the feature. “So. F. Funny.” she said in a very unusual public manner about her lover. “So. F. Good. So F excited for you to see this…#Thatsmyken”.
