Come on Barbie, let's go party!
Social media went nuts on Wednesday, June 15, after the first photo of Ryan Gosling as Ken in the upcoming "Barbie" movie was released. In the image, the actor dons platinum blond locks, a denim vest and "Ken"-branded underwear peeking out of his denim jeans. His tanned six-pack abs are easily noticeable.
"OMG. TAKE MY MONEY," one person exclaimed upon seeing the snap of Ryan as Barbie's boyfriend. Another said, "Ok i need to see this movie." A gaggle of fans proclaimed it as the "perfect" casting.
However, not all the comments were positive, as an assembly of fans felt that Chris Evans was a better Ken, whereas others weren't digging the nearly-translucent hair color.
"I grew up with Barbie…this is…new? Idk what to expect," another person said. One wondered, "Oh gosh what am I looking at?"
Ryan was compared to Ariana Grande's brother, Frankie, and even Fred from the live action Scooby Doo movie, which was played by Freddie Prinze Jr.
Back in April, the movie studio released photos of Margot Robbie, who plays the titular character in the summer 2023 film.
Life in plastic, it's fantastic.
