Ryan Gosling gushes over his role as Ken in the Barbie movie
"Finally, it’s happening," he told Variety.
Gosling clearly believes he was born for the role of Barbie's buff boo: "This has been coming my whole life," he said.
Images of Gosling with tanned skin and platinum blond hair were released in June, sending the internet into a frenzy.
"I felt like I was seeing myself. I felt seen. I think a lot of Kens will feel seen when they see this," the 41-year-old star added.
"Gotta do it for the Kens. Nobody plays with the Kens."
