First look at completely transformed Ryan Gosling
Ryan Gosling has had a major make-over, making him the perfect Ken Doll for Warner Bro’s latest, Greta Gerwig’s Barbie, staring Margot Robbie.
The studio has debuted a striking photo of Gosling's Ken sporting six-pack abs, bleach blonde hair and a spray tan.
Gerwig co-wrote the Barbie script with her partner, Noah Baumbach. Production on the film is currently underway.

The supporting cast includes America Ferrera, Simu Liu, Kate McKinnon, Alexandra Shipp, Emma Mackey, Kingsley Ben-Adir, Issa Rae, Michael Cera and many more. While no plot details from Barbie have been confirmed, it's rumoured that several Barbie and Ken characters factor into the story.
Liu described Barbie earlier this year as "wild" and "incredibly unique," adding, "I wish I could just show you what we do day-to-day because it's crazy."
The film is not a musical, but Liu said he's been in dance rehearsals aplenty for the movie. The actor also teased what it's like working on a Greta Gerwig set.
"When you're doing a scene and it's working, you hear, 'HAHAHAHA!' It's the best feeling in the world," Liu said. "If you're an a--hole on a Greta Gerwig set, there's no hope for you."
Warner Bros.' Barbie will open in Australian theatres on July 20, 2023.
