Ncuti Gatwa remembers being anxious when he first stepped onto the Barbie set and how he “drowned” in Ryan Gosling’s blue eyes.
There is no hopeless romantic on the face of this planet that the charisma of the iconic Barbie actor Ryan Gosling can’t sway! (La La Land fans, raise your hand!) Even his co-stars are not excluded from the list!
Ncuti Gatwa recalled the days he worked on the sets of Barbie while being in the presence of this dreamy actor. He thinks back to how he gushes over his heartthrob, Ken (Ryan Gosling).
He confessed that he was “so nervous I hardly spoke for the first month.” He talks about his fanboy moment with the swoon-worthy actor,
“There was a time when I was talking to Greta (Greta Gerwig, the movie’s director), and I turned around, and Ryan Gosling was looking at me, and his eyes were so blue that I just… fell over. I just drowned in his eyes,” (we can totally imagine!)
He further added,
“I noticed that it was also the most kind, empathetic set I’ve ever been on,”
The 30-year-old Sex Education actor also talked about how Margot Robbie took the cast members to attend the Magic Mike Show. He said,
“We played So Solid Crew and all these old-school garage tunes, then we got to Magic Mike, and all screamed our faces off at the incredible dancers. Then we all went to [London nightclub] The Box… The group chat the next day was lit,”
Highest-grossing film of 2023 – Barbie
Barbie is on its way to becoming the highest-grossing film of 2023. It has earned over $1.381 billion since its release on July 21st. It is a comedy-drama film directed by Greta Gerwig.
The movie is based on Mattel’s iconic toy brand, and it follows the life of the residents of nearly perfect Barbie Land.
Two massive icons, Margot Robbie and Ryan Gosling, were cast for the role of Barbie and Ken. Other cast members include America Ferrera, Kate McKinnon, Issa Rae, Rhea Perlman, Will Ferrell, and Ncuti Gatwa.
Barbie has broken several records since it was released for the first time in theatres on July 21, 2023. Every day comes with a new record for the masterpiece film.
Barbie is taking its audience on a self-discovery. At the same time, the seemingly perfect Barbie is shown wrestling with her existential crisis and how she overcomes the hurdles of the real world.
The Barbie movie has made $600 million in North America alone. The movie secured the number 1 spot at the box office for a mind-boggling four-weekend collection and eventually became the highest-grossing global release a woman solely directs.
This is truly a proud moment for the female community.
Greta Gerwig is a critically acclaimed director with Oscar nominations for fantastic movies such as Lady Bird and Little Women. Greta Gerwig has always managed to present a thought-provoking, unique message in front of the audience.
