The entire world has been in Barbie fever for the last couple of weeks and it doesn’t seem to be going down any time soon. From the ensemble cast that features Margot Robbie, Ryan Gosling, Simu Liu, Emma Mackey, and Michael Cera to Barbie and Ken’s self-discovery journey that lands the duo in an existential crisis, Greta Gerwig’s Barbie has everything and more.

Barbie‘s exquisite soundtrack features songs from some of the most famous artists such as Charli XCX, Dua Lipa, Lizzo, Sam Smith, Ava Max, and many others also has an iconic song called I’m Just Ken by Ryan Gosling. The song reached great heights upon its release and recently, epic behind-the-scenes (BTS) footage has been released.

Ryan Gosling starred as Ken opposite Margot Robbie’s Barbie. Judging from the praise his performance got from critics and fans, it is safe to say that he was the Ken that everyone wanted to see. However, it is to be noted that in addition to his phenomenal acting, he also sang the ballad I’m Just Ken which earned a well-deserved spot on the Billboard charts.

Surprisingly, Gosling was Margot Robbie and Greta Gerwig’s first and only choice for Ken. In an interview with Extra TV, Robbie revealed that the La La Land actor was their “dream choice” for the role. Gerwig had even written down his name next to Ken’s character as her personal actor choice.

Initially, Gosling’s casting as Ken was criticized by some fans and critics but the actor effectively shut them down stating no one ever cared about Ken. Robbie and Gerwig were right for choosing the Blade Runner actor as he has proven to be the most perfect Ken Barbie could ever find.
