Ryan Gosling Says The Barbie Movie 'Is Not What You Think It Is'

Ryan Gosling Says The Barbie Movie 'Is Not What You Think It Is'

Gosling stars in Greta Gerwig's movie alongside Margot Robbie

You might think life in plastic is fantastic, but apparently that's not necessarily the case in the upcoming Barbie film as Ryan Gosling has insisted it's 'not what you think it is'.

Gosling is set to star alongside Margot Robbie in the live-action Barbie movie under the direction of Greta Gerwig, who is known for her work on Little Women.

Incredible pictures from the set and a footage showing Robbie in character have already got fans excited for what the 2023 film will entail, but Gosling has now encouraged people to think twice as he admitted he 'can’t wait for people to see the film'.


During an interview with Entertainment Tonight, the actor was questioned about his thoughts on the film after Robbie said the Barbie movie was not going to be what people expected, to which he responded to say he would 'never correct Barbie'.

"I would say whatever Barbie says is exactly right," he continued. "It's not what you think it is. Unless it is. And then you know what it is, but I don't think that's what you think it is."

Gosling stressed he couldn't say much about his highly-anticipated role otherwise 'Mattel will come in and box [him] up', but he claimed the photos leaked from set were 'nothing' compared to the movie as a whole.

The actor spoke about his role alongside Robbie while promoting his new action thriller The Gray Man, in which he stars as a CIA mercenary who takes himself off after uncovering dirt on the agency. He's forced to fight for his life, but Gosling joked that was nothing in comparison to what Ken had to go through,

He said: "That Ken life is even harder than the ‘Gray Man’ life, I think. Ken’s got no money, he’s got no job, he’s got no car, he’s got no house. He’s going through some stuff.”

Gosling's hints at what the movie will, or rather won't, look like come after Robbie told Vogue last year the idea of Barbie 'comes with a lot of baggage', as well as a 'lot of nostalgic connections'.

However, she continued: "With that come a lot of exciting ways to attack it. 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...’."

The stars' comments suggest the Barbie movie will take fans by surprise, but with the actors keeping their lips sealed we'll just have to wait and see exactly what they have in store.
