Next summer, the feature film “Barbie” will be shown on cinema screens around the world. A live-action movie based on the popular doll.
In the main roles we find superstars Margot Robbie and Ryan Gosling, as Barbie and Ken, respectively. But even though the movie won’t be released for a little over a year, photos from filming this summer have already leaked.
At the end of June, photos appeared of the duo filming outside on Venice Beach in Los Angeles. In an interview on “The Tonight Show”, Robbie opens up about what it was like when the photos went viral on the Internet.
– I can’t tell you how scared we were. It seems that we are laughing and having fun, but we are dead inside, he said and continued:
– I thought this was the most humiliating moment of my life.
Robbie says that when he realized they had to shoot outside in LA he expected the paparazzi to be there and the strange outfits he also expected a little extra audience.
But when the photos got as much attention as they did, many people came to watch the public recording. Far more than Robbie himself had imagined.
– I knew there would be some attention, and probably some photos would come out, but never as much as it turned out. It was crazy, said Robbie and continued.
– There were hundreds of people watching.
The film is supposed to be released on July 23, 2023 and is directed by Greta Gerwig, known in Little Women and Ladybird, among others. In addition to Gosling and Robbie, there are also a number of other big stars who appear in the film.
Among them are Saoirse Ronan, Will Ferrell, America Ferrera, Simu Liu and Kate McKinnon.
