Next summer, the movie “Barbie” will be shown in cinemas around the world. A live action movie based on the popular doll.
In the lead roles we find co-stars Margot Robbie and Ryan Gosling, as Barbie and Ken, respectively. But even though the movie hasn’t been released for a little over a year, photos from filming this summer have already been leaked.
In late June, photos surfaced of the duo filming outside on Venice Beach in Los Angeles. In an interview with “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 terrified we were. It seemed like we were laughing and having fun, but we were dying inside, she says and continues:
– I thought this was the most humiliating moment of my life.
Robbie says that when she realized they had to shoot outdoors in Los Angeles, she expected the paparazzi to be there and with the weird outfits, she also expected a little extra audience.
But when the photos got the same amount of attention, many people came to watch the public recording. Much more than Robbie himself could have imagined.
– I knew there would be some interest, and some pictures would probably come out, but not as much as it did. It was crazy, says Robbie and continues.
– There were hundreds of people watching.
The film is expected to be released on July 23, 2023 and directed by Greta Gerwig, known from Little Women and Ladybird, among others. In addition to Gosling and Robbie, there are also a number of other big stars who have appeared in the movie.
They include Saoirse Ronan, Will Ferrell, America Ferrera, Simo Liu and Kate McKinnon.
