Ryan Gosling revealed the reason his and Eva Mendes’ daughters haven’t seen the Barbie Movie. The actors who share daughters Esmerelda, 9, and Amada, with Mendes, revealed despite helping him prepare for the role they haven’t watched the movie yet. In a recent conversation with E-News at the 2024 Santa Barbara International Film Festival Gosling shared the reason behind this action. Keep reading if you want to know the reason.
Gosling don’t know if you should watch your father as Ken
While talking with the media house the 43-year-old said, “I don’t know if you should watch your father as Ken, I don’t know what age is a good age to see your father do that. It gets pretty crazy.”
However, his daughters got a live view of their father as this iconic doll as the actor said “They’ve seen little parts of it and they came to set one day when I did a big musical number.”
Fun fact, Gosling’s daughters are the reason he pulled off this role.
“I knew that they loved it because they kept saying at first, ‘Hey, can we go to Target?'” the academy nominee recalled. “And we go to Target, and then they’d slowly go by the Barbie aisle. And my wife and I sort of realized, ‘OK, I think it’s time to let them have Barbies.’ And no interest in Ken, which was pretty interesting, too.”
Hence, making the Greta Gerwig directorial “was a way to sort of make something both for and with them.”
Moreover, the actor who first shared screen with his lady-love in his 2012’s The Place Beyond the Pines, said he would love to make Eva his co-star.
Gosling gushed, “That was the greatest experience I had making a film, so I hope so.”
Previously, while accepting the Kirk Douglas Award for Excellence in Film at the Jan. 13 event the actor also gave a special shoutout to his partner.
“I got to meet the girl of my dreams, Eva Mendes,” he said. “I have two dream children. I dreamed of one day making movies and now movies have made my life a dream. So the way I see it, there’s no way I’ve contributed half as much to cinema as cinema has contributed to me.”
Meanwhile, Eva also showed support for her husband after Ryan’s song “I’m Just Ken” won Best Original Song at the 2024 Critics Choice Awards. She posted a screenshot of Gosling along with writing,“I LOVE HIM!!!!”
