Ryan Gosling caused a stir on the Internet on Wednesday, when the first images of the actor’s appearance in the upcoming live-action Barbie film were released online.
Sporting flamboyant blonde hair and toned abs in a denim vest – shirtless – the Canadian star looked unrecognizable after transforming into the character of Ken.
In the viral moment, Ryan, 41, cooed against a bright pink pole and flashed a cheeky grin as he posed in a pair of jeans and printed underwear. His body is above the waistline.
Just like a doll, the Blue Valentine actor appeared hairless with a toned six-pack as he brought children’s toys to life for the upcoming romantic comedy.

Barbie, directed by Greta Gerwig, will also see actress Margot Robbie star in the film based on Mattel’s toy line of the same name.
Ahead of the film’s release next year, Warner Bros. has released several promotional images of the cast – with Ryan transforming into a ‘blonde guy’ who won’t go unnoticed by the internet.
“Ryan Gosling as Ken in #Barbie is truly perfect,” one Twitter user declared on Wednesday, with another adding: “Ryan Gosling as Ken can surpass me!!!”
The third quipped: “Ryan growls like hebo ken… he’ll crush it.”
Another noted Ryan’s resemblance to a Love Island contestant, writing: “The reactions were mixed when ryan gosling was like ken but to me it’s literally ken jdjdkfkfk not like ken dolls in my youth that’s definitely the ken dolls that I see in stores these days like they all give ‘can I pull you out for a chat?'”
Barbie, slated for a July 2023 release, will also see big names like Will Ferrell, Issa Rae, Simu Liu, America Ferrera, Kate McKinnon, and Michael Cera all make appearances.
While we’ve only seen topless Ryan as Ken, images of Margot as the iconic doll were released earlier this year.
After confirming her casting in July 2019, the 32-year-old The Wolf of Wall Street actress went on to discuss how the film’s goal is to beat expectations.
“We like things that feel a bit off-centre. Something like Barbie, where the IP, the very name, people immediately have the idea ‘Oh, Margot is playing Barbie, I know that’s it. whatever’, but our goal is ‘Whatever you’re thinking, we’re going to give you something completely different,’ the actress explained to The Hollywood reporter.
“What you don’t know is you want. Now, can we really honor IPs and fan bases and also surprise people? Because if we could do all of that, too? and spark a thoughtful conversation, we’re really on fire.”
No plot details have been shared so far, other than the cast and their characters have been confirmed.
