Ryan Gosling has recently appeared on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon to promote his action thriller Netflix movie, The Gray Man. He also gets candid about his upcoming movie Barbie in which Ryan Gosling starred as Ken alongside Margot Robbie. However, Ryan Gosling’s shirtless photo as Ken from the Barbie movie went viral on social media. His girlfriend Eva Mendes also shared that photo.
Meanwhile, Gosling recently shared that he was surprised by the reaction to his shirtless Ken photo from the Barbie film. During his recent appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, the actor shared, “I was surprised how, you know, some people were clutching their pearls at my Ken as though they ever thought about Ken for a second before this.” The Gray Man actor went on to say, “They never played with Ken. Nobody plays with Ken, man. Did you play with Ken?”
Show host Jimmy replied, ‘Nah.’ ‘Exactly,’ Ryan said. ‘He was available,’ Jimmy said. ‘He stayed in the toy box.’ ‘He’s an accessory and not even one of the cool ones,’ Ryan said. ‘It officially broke the Internet,’ Jimmy earlier said of the photo. ‘Well, the Internet’s been trying to break me for years,’ Ryan quipped. ‘So it gave me no other choice.’ However, Jimmy noted that Vanity Fair speculated that Ryan chose the role of Ken because he loved jean jackets and showed photos of Ryan in denim.
Ryan replied, “Did you bring me on your show to denim shame me? There’s no denim shame in my game, man. I love denim.’ Jimmy asked Ryan how he made the decision to take the role after being contacted by director Greta Gerwig and going into his backyard to think about it. ‘Best script I’ve ever read,’ Ryan said. ‘I walk out in the backyard and you know where I found Ken, Jimmy? Face down in the mud next to a squished lemon.’
Jimmy then shared Ryan’s photo of the Ken doll in the dirt. ‘This is a sign that you have got to do this movie,’ Jimmy said. ‘The utter disrespect.’ ‘I texted it to Greta and I said, ”I shall be your Ken for his story must be told”,’ Ryan said. Ryan Gosling’s starring movie, Barbie is scheduled to release next year.
