She’s everything. He’s just Ken. Margot Robbie played Barbie in the first live-action Barbie film as before there had many computer-animated direct-to-video and streaming television films.

Margot also celebrated her birthday on 2 July a night before the premiere of Barbie in which she joined co-star America Ferrera played Gloria and director Greta Gerwig. In a recent interview with Variety, Greta the director of the film opened up about Margot playing the Barbie and feeling self-conscious at one point in filming the movie.

Greta explained that the scenes were filmed in Venice Beach when Margot and Ryan Gosling were filming in bright neon roller skating looks. “How Barbie operates in Barbie land is she’s entirely continuous with her environment,” Greta explained.

“Even the houses have no walls because you never need to hide because there’s nothing to be ashamed of or embarrassed by. And suddenly finding yourself in the real world and wishing you could hide, that’s the essence of being human,” she added

“But when we were actually shooting on Venice Beach, with Margot and Ryan in neon rollerblading outfits, it was fascinating because it was actually happening in front of us,” Greta said.

She recalled “People would go by Ryan, high-five him, and say, ‘Awesome, Ryan, you look great!’ And they wouldn’t actually say anything to Margot.”

They’d just look at her, just surreal. At that moment, she did feel self-conscious. And as the director, I wanted to protect her. But I also knew that the scene we were shooting had to be the scene where she felt exposed. And she was exposed, both as a celebrity and as a lady.” she concluded.

Get ready to watch up close at the Barbie land on July 9, 2023, in Los Angles and in the United States on July 21 by Warner Bros. Pictures.
