Margot Robbie says she and Ryan Gosling were ‘mortified’ in viral ‘Barbie’ photos

If you think the Hollywood hype surrounding the upcoming “Barbie” movie seems a bit excessive, don’t worry ― Margot Robbie I understand your frustration.

The two-time Oscar nominee dropped from “The show tonighton Monday to promote his new movie, “Amsterdam.” Yet the conversation inevitably turned to “Barbie,” in which the actor plays Mattel’s iconic doll opposite Ryan Gosling as her boyfriend, Ken.

This summer, the paparazzi cracked countless pictures showing Gosling and Robbie on the set, wearing head-to-toe neon suits and rollerblading on the beach. While it’s easy to assume the film’s creative team is orchestrating the publicity blitz, Robbie said that’s not the case.

“I can’t tell you how mortified we were, by the way,” she told the host jimmy fallon. “We seem to be laughing and having fun, but dying inside. Dying. I was like, ‘This is the most humbling moment of my life.'”

Since the scenes for “Barbie” were filmed on location in Los Angeles, Robbie said she couldn’t believe how many people showed up to watch them film.

“There’s probably going to be a small crowd of people who are going to stand out, because, you know, we kind of stand out in these outfits,” she said. “So I knew there would be some attention, and probably some photos would get out there, but not the way they did. It was like crazy. It was like hundreds of people were watching .

While the photos of Gosling and Robbie may have whetted fans’ appetites for “Barbie,” very little has been made public about the film’s plot.

Several of Robbie’s co-stars have already rented the screenplay, written by Noah Baumbach and Greta Gerwig, as well as the direction by Gerwig.
