Ryan Gosling is being blasted as being too old to play the role of Ken from the new Barbie movie.
The star received plenty of criticism when the trailer was launched alongside actress Margot Robbie who is playing the stereotypical Barbie doll.
Sources from local media outlets claim the star is now responding to his critics and trolls and wants them to know something, loud and clear.
The star mentioned how he is appalled by the kinds of comments coming toward him. He says that no one paid too much attention to Ken in the past and ever since he took up the role, people are coming left and right at him. Is that fair, he questioned, and even answered with a big no!
The star also spoke about how people don’t need to play with his Ken if they don’t want to. There are plenty of other Kens in this world to play with so why not focus on that?
It’s clear that this celeb has no interest in what other people have to say in terms of criticism. He added, ‘To each their own’ and he similarly mentioned how you don’t have to love everything that comes your way.
Ryan and Margot’s new film really started to make headlines at the start of the year when sneak peeks of the new Barbie and Ken were unveiled online while the pair were shooting.
Just the thought of Barbie and Ken coming to life had people at a standstill. They were excited about the film’s release and simply couldn’t wait.
What is even more interesting is how the celeb mentioned that the moment he saw his own daughters playing with Ken meant he had to do something about this. He wanted the story to come to life and what better time for something like that than this, he added.
