Ryan Gosling Has Addressed The Barbie’s Ken Critics
Ryan Gosling is a captivating star who continues to mesmerize audiences with his unmatched talent and charisma. Recently, he fired back at critics who argue he’s too old to portray Ken in the upcoming Barbie movie.
Social media has witnessed an uproar from younger Barbie fans, criticizing the casting of the 42-year-old actor.
During an interview with GQ, Gosling confidently dismisses the critics, stating,
“And everyone was fine with that, for him to have a job that is nothing. But suddenly, it’s like, No, we’ve cared about Ken this whole time. No, you didn’t. You never did.”
He highlights Ken’s primary purpose as simply enjoying the beach and existing primarily as Barbie’s partner. He said,
“Barbie never f**ked with Ken. That’s the point. If you ever really cared about Ken, you would know that nobody cared about Ken. So your hypocrisy is exposed. This is why his story must be told.”
As the release of the Barbie movie draws closer, the ongoing discussion surrounding Gosling’s portrayal of Ken continues to captivate public interest.
Meanwhile, Gosling’s co-star in the film, praises his portrayal of Ken, further sparking anticipation for the movie.

During an interview with the media outlet, Robbie praised La La Land’s artist performance as “the greatest version of Ryan Gosling ever put on screen.”
However, further, the Canadian actor admitted that he initially hesitated to take on the role. He explained,
“Ken wasn’t really on my bucket list. But in fairness, I don’t have a bucket list. So I thought I’d give it a shot.”
During the story pitch, Gerwig expressed her fascination with how Ken came into existence as a product, emphasizing that Barbie was invented first, and Ken was created later to enhance Barbie’s image.
The 32-year-old also revealed that the role was initially offered to Gal Gadot, but she declined. With Robbie’s endorsement and the undeniable talent of Gosling, the Barbie movie emerges as a must-watch for fans of the iconic doll and the talented actors involved.
Barbie will release in theatres on July 21st, 2023.
