First picture of Ryan Gosling as Ken

What a cast! The Barbie movie stars Margot Robbie as the lead and Ryan Gosling as Ken. Now we have a first picture of it.

the essentials in brief

  • The Barbie movie will be out in 2023.
  • Ryan Gosling and Margot Robbie star.

It’s definitely not what was expected, but nobody seems to be disappointed: the first picture of Ryan Gosling as Ken in the “Barbie” movie has been released. At his side, Margot Robbie will take on the iconic character of Barbie.

A cast full of Hollywood heavyweights and behind the camera it’s no different: Greta Gerwig (Little Women) directs, she wrote the screenplay with her partner Noah Baumbach (Marriage Story).

The film adaptation of this children’s classic will probably not be superficial feel-good trash. Characters with complexity and a differentiated approach to the role of Ken can be expected.

Barbie is said to be harmful to little girls

Irritated? Nutritionists, psychologists and women’s rights activists have been warning of the negative effects of the Barbie figure for years. An Australian study showed that barbies have a negative impact on little girls’ ideals of beauty.

Greta Gerwig, as director and screenwriter of the work, turns the concept of the superficial, man-oriented Barbie on its head. It remains to be seen whether this will simply cut into a trend notch or whether the figures will be revolutionized. In any case, the protagonists do not deviate from the ideal of beauty.
