    “I’ll Buy You A Present Every Day”: Margot Robbie Literally Bribed Ryan Gosling To Be Her Ken In ‘Barbie’

    2023 witnessed a cinematic flash between Greta Gerwig’s ‘Barbie‘ and Christopher Nolan’s ‘Oppenheimer’. The moviegoers were torn between the aesthetic musical world of ‘Barbie‘ starring Margot Robbie and Ryan Gosling, and the bombing cinematography of Nolan with Cillian Murphy and Robert Downey Jr. on screen.

    Robbie’s film was a memorable and significant feat for Hollywood and is on the way to becoming a cinematic masterpiece. Although the spotlight was on Margot, Gosling as Ken was as much a treat for the eyes. But, his being a part of the film was on Robbie.

    Directed by Greta Gerwig, the film featured an exceptional cast of critically acclaimed actors. Ryan Gosling became the highlight of the film, embodying his character in the most perfect way possible. He nailed the role with the utmost perfection that it is impossible to imagine someone else in the role. 

    Surprisingly, it was Margot Robbie who convinced the ‘La La Land’ actor to be a part of this project. During an interview with the New York Post, the ‘Suicide Squad’ actress revealed that she bribed Gosling to be a part of Greta Gerwig’s project. Robbie said, “I just bribed him really. That’s the basis of our relationship. Just come do the Barbie movie, I’ll buy you a present every day.”

    If not for Margot Robbie, Ken would have been played by some other actor, and the fans would have missed Ryan Gosling’s iconic performance. During an interview, Robbie revealed that she promised to do anything for Ryan Gosling if he joined the cast of ‘Barbie’. She would get him a present every single day of production until the very last day of filming.

    However, the promises were kept. Ryan Gosling revealed that the actress got him a present every single day wrapped in a pink wrapping and hid it for Gosling to find. Gosling said that he felt unsustainable, expecting her to stop at some point. He also revealed that he got a Puka shell necklace once.
