The Incredible Transformation of Ryan Gosling as The Famous Ken Doll

As he prepares to play with Margot Robbie in the live-action Barbie film, Oscar-nominated actor Ryan Gosling has been spotted for the first time as the beloved Mattel Ken doll.

In a daring double denim costume on Wednesday, the 41-year-old actor flaunted his orange-hued tan and muscular chest, as well as his bleached-white hair for the fictional character.

Warner Bros. published the first image of Ryan in an April tweet that only said the film’s title and a July 21, 2023 release date, which was previously announced when they shared the first image of Margot, 31, like Barbie.

Ryan Gosling looks to be dressed as the ‘Earring Magic Ken‘ version of Mattel’s 1993 doll, which was released as a complement to the ‘Earring Magic Barbie’ figure.

Ken had golden highlights instead of his usual brown hair in this edition of the Ken doll.

A lavender mesh blouse, a purple leather jacket, and jewellery, including an earring and a necklace, were also included in the doll’s ensemble.

It was the best-selling Ken doll of all time when it was released, and it made a sensation when some claimed that the designers were inspired by the homosexual partying scene in New York and Los Angeles in the early 1990s.

Ryan is noted for his sombre roles in films including Drive, Blade Runner 2049, Blue Valentine, and Half Nelson. Ken, with his cheesy grin and white undies with his character’s name, appears to be a departure for the actor.

‘Looking camp in the eye, here’s the first still of Ryan Gosling as Ken,’ wrote writer Evan Ross Katz in the description of his Instagram image.

“I was expecting beautiful blonde hair, but I guess this is satire,” one die-hard Barbie lover remarked.

‘Hollywood has not invested in any young male stars in the last fifteen years and this is a prime illustration,’ one fan wrote. ‘What makes Ken so old?’

‘Why did I believe this was a Love Island commercial?’ joked another.

Greta Gerwig, the director of Little Women and Ladybird, is also co-writing the script with her longtime collaborator Noah Baumbach.

About the star cast

Will Ferrell, Issa Rae, Simu Liu, Kate McKinnon, America Ferrera, Michael Cera, and Alexandra Shipp are featured in the picture, which also has an all-star cast.

‘A doll residing in “Barbieland” gets ejected for not being beautiful enough and embarks on an adventure in the real world,’ according to a synopsis on IMDB for the upcoming film. A live-action feature film inspired by the renowned Barbie toy line.’

Margot has long been rumoured to be playing the world’s most famous fashion doll in a live-action film, and she promised audiences something completely new’ back in December 2020.

When it comes to her interpretation of the Mattel doll, she’s going for something “a bit left centre.” The project will be produced by her LuckyChap Entertainment Company, whose motto is “If it’s not a f**k, yeah, no.”

‘Something like Barbie, where the IP, the name itself, people immediately get a sense of, ‘Oh Margot is playing Barbie, I know what that is,” Robbie explained to The Hollywood Reporter about the project.

‘However, whatever you’re thinking, we’re going to give you something completely different — the thing you didn’t realise you wanted.’

On July 21, 2023, the live-action Barbie film will debut.
