Ryan Gosling has traded his intimidating on-screen character for a spray tan and denim.
The actor draws attention to his over-the-top transformation in a brand new photo from his forthcoming movie Barbie.
Warner Bros. unleashed a bold pink photo of Gosling on Wednesday, just days after releasing its first display of an equally colorful picture of Robbie in Barbie’s pink car from the highly anticipated production.
The adaptation, directed by Greta Gerwig, features Margot Robbie as the iconic toy character. It is also written by Gerwig alongside her partner and long-time collaborator Noah Baumbach.
The film stars famous actors such as America Ferrera, Alexandra Shipp, Emma Mackey, Kingsley Ben-Adir, Issa Rae, Michael Cera, Simu Liu, and Kate McKinnon.
In a previous interview, Liu talked about his hairless entry to his portrayal, an approach that, according to the looks of the image, was also used by Gosling.
“Waxing has been an education, to say the least,” he said in an interview with The Independent. “It was one of the most painful experiences of my life. I have such a newfound admiration for the incredibly brave women who go through this on a monthly basis.”
The film’s plot and additional characters from the Barbie collection have not been revealed yet.
Barbie will hit theaters on July 21, 2023.
