Many get a case of hardened nipple knobs and moist tips over Ryan Gosling and I never really have until now! Just slap a bootleg Legend of Billie Jean wig onto his head, slather his skin with fake tan paint (in shade: Tang dream) and dress him in the finest clothes found in the clearance bin of a Miller’s Outpost circa 1989, and you’ve got instant hotness! Warner Bros. released the first pic of Ryan Gosling as Ken, in the Barbie movie and he looks like every generic bad boy in an 80s comedy. In other words, Ryan Gosling has never looked hotter!
While looking like he was styled by both Papa Joe Simpson and Frankie Grande, Ryan throws a smarmy smirk as Ken. This is the second look we’ve gotten at the Barbie movie, which comes out on July 21, 2023, and is directed by Gerta Gerwig and written by Greta and Noah Baumbach. The first look was Margot Robbie looking like, well, Margot Robbie as Barbie. Here’s a side-by-side of 31-year-old Margot as Barbie and 41-year-old Ryan as Ken. This Ken looks like he’s going through a mid-life crisis and winks at youngins’ at the club while letting them know he’s got some party favors in his jean vest pocket. Come on Barbie, let’s go parTy.

While the Barbie movie won’t feature Aqua’s masterpiece Barbie Girl (an ILLEGAL act, I know), it will feature America Ferrera, Simu Liu, Kate McKinnon, Emma Mackey, Issa Rae, Alexandra Shipp, Michael Cera, Will Ferrell, Rhea Perlman, Hari Nef, Emerald Fennell, Kingsley Ben-Adir, Ncuti Gatwa, Scott Evans, and every other working actor in the world. Simu has said that Ryan isn’t the only one who plays Ken in the Barbie movie. Simu and Ncuti play Ken too. So save some of your swoons for the b-hole-popping sight of either Simu or Ncuti as Magic Cock Ring Earring Ken! This Barbie movie isn’t giving us Aqua so the least it can do is give us the hottest and gayest Ken Doll in the land.
