The upcoming live-action Barbie movie has been generating a lot of excitement, and one of the details that has caught the attention of fans is Barbie’s arched feet. In the film’s trailer, Barbie is seen taking off her heels, revealing her perfectly arched feet. Margot Robbie, who plays Barbie in the film, recently opened up about how they filmed those iconic frames. Margot Robbie recently explained to Fandango how she and the crew worked to make Barbie’s feet look like the doll’s in the upcoming live-action film. The clip of the interview has gone viral on TikTok, amassing over 1.3 million views.

“It was probably about eight takes. Wasn’t that many. They are my feet. I walked up, we had little sticky bits on the floor for the double-sided tape for the shoes, so they wouldn’t come off so that I could get my feet out of them and I was holding on to a bar, but that’s it. I wasn’t in a harness or anything like that. I just walked up, kind of held onto the bar above camera.”
