Margot Robbie ‘bribed’ Ryan Gosling into playing Ken.
The 33-year-old actress produced the Barbie movie as well as taking on the lead role, and she promised 42-year-old Ryan she would bring him a present every day if he agreed to sign up for the film.
What’s more, Ryan was stunned by the deluge of pink gifts he received.
Margot explained: ‘I just bribed him really. That’s the basis of our relationship.’
She added to the New York Times: ‘“Just come do the Barbie movie, I’ll buy you a present every day”.’
Ryan chimed in: ‘There was suddenly this pink present from Barbie to Ken, every day, for a very long shoot.
‘It felt unsustainable. I thought this has to stop at some point. There were times on set where I got a puka shell necklace.
‘Thank you very much. You don’t have to keep doing this. I’m sure you have other things to do, like produce a movie and star in a movie, and run a company.
‘And produce other people’s films. You don’t have to keep concerning yourself with this.’
Meanwhile, Ryan recently revealed his kids were totally unbothered when he landed the role of Ken.
Speaking to People, the actor said Amada, seven, and Esmeralda, eight – who he shares with long-time partner Eva Mendes – were ‘confused’ by why he wanted to play Ken.
‘My kids were my introduction to [Barbie],’ the A-lister began.
‘I think they’re confused as to why I would want to play Ken.
‘They have no use for Ken.’
But his little ones had his back all the way and even helped Ryan prepare for a big scene.
‘My kids were around for the months at home, as I was prepping for it,’ he added.
‘So they, inadvertently, were prepping for it too.
‘And they came to set that day and were a huge sense of support and doing it with me off-camera.’
