Barbie movie: Ryan Gosling shows off his abs as he transforms into Ken for Margot Robbie
Ryan Gosling’s First Look at the Margot Robbie-Led Romantic Comedy Barbie, the first live-action film to feature Mattel’s titular character, was released. On Wednesday, Warner Bros. unveiled the first photo of the actor as Ken, Barbie’s boyfriend, to pique the curiosity of fans. He is seen in 80s style denim and a vest, with white blonde hair completing the look. His figure eight abs are hard to miss. Gosling’s Ken seems to be quite faithful to the original Mattel figure that occupied our shelves in the 80s, indicating that Barbie is likely to be an authentic version of these cult characters. At least visually.
This is only the second photo to come out of Barbie, as the creators previously teased Robbie’s look as the titular character. Her appearance, like Gosling’s, also pleased loyal fans of the Mattel franchise as she looked like a Barbie doll brought to life.
