Last Tuesday, we got a small taste of the set photos where the ‘Barbie‘ movie is currently in production. We saw images of Ryan Gosling’s ‘Ken‘ character roller blading with Margot Robbie’s ‘Barbie‘ character in what appears to be Venice Beach, California. As far as the production goes, they just started filming the movie that is slated for a July 21, 2023 release.
But there was some footage released of that behind the scenes that is making fans go bonkers due to a specific moment where Margot Robbie gets spanked. A good samaritan got paid the big bucks to smack Barbie‘s bottom and get Ken’s reaction to it. Although the initial reaction wasn’t exactly what we expected, Ryan Gosling delivers it perfectly and gives us yet another brilliant comedic moment.
Ryan Gosling’s comedic skills.
We have to take into account that Ryan Gosling didn’t start as the Hollywood heartthrob, he was a member of the club when he was young and he’s proven to have mad range in all his performances. When he started as a kid, he developed impressive slapstick comedic skills that have taken him far in the industry.
He showed us what he can do in films such as 2000’s ‘Remember the Titans‘ as a skinny reconverted defensive end. But perhaps his greatest comedic role came in 2016’s ‘The Nice Guys‘, where he hilariously shares the screen with a veteran Russell Crowe and had a blast flexing his comedic muscles after a long time playing serious roles.
In the scene that was being filmed, a person that wasn’t wearing the colorful Barbie or Ken outfit slaps her in the bum. She reacts by turning and punching him in the face but not before Ryan Gosling literally squeals. These screams have been heard from Gosling numerous times in the past, it’s a great tool he has to deliver a great comedic moment in film.
We are not sure what type of roles Ryan Gosling is playing with Ken but we can already tell it will defeinitely be on the comedic side. This is a movie about one of the most iconic toys in history after all. They do seem to be having a blast on set, especially in those scenes where they roller blade.
