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 understands your frustration.

The two-time Oscar nominee appeared on “The Tonight Show” on Monday to promote her new movie, “Amsterdam.” Still, the conversation inevitably turned to “Barbie,” in which the actor plays the iconic Mattel doll opposite Ryan Gosling as her boyfriend, Ken.

This summer, the paparazzi snapped countless photos showing Gosling and Robbie on set, dressed head-to-toe in fluorescent costumes and roller-skating 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 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 some photos would probably get out there, but not like 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 praised the screenplay, written by Noah Baumbach and Greta Gerwig, as well as Gerwig’s direction.
