Ryan Gosling about playing Ken in the Barbie movie
The conventional role of Ken is Barbie’s romantic interest. However, Ryan Gosling’s Ken in the film has questioned the stereotype asking why it is not just Ken, and always Ken and Barbie. He questioned why Ken cannot be a standalone character without being under the shadow of Barbie.
Gosling appeared very determined to change the world’s opinion about the Mattel doll. He even launched a #JusticeForKen campaign before the movie’s release.
In an interview with GQ, the 42-year-old actor said that while he was contemplating whether to say yes to the film, he found his daughter’s Ken doll in the mud outside one day, that too in a face-down position. It was lying next to a squished lemon. Gosling said that it made him think that Ken’s story needs to be told.
The actor also spoke out against the hypocrisy that surfaced online when some people brought up his age and said that he was too old for the role. Gosling said:
“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.”
Ryan Gosling’s Ken in Greta Gerwig’s Barbie has attempted to do the impossible, that is, to prove that while Ken cannot be Barbie, he has always been Ken-ough.
