Lead star and producer of Barbie Margot Robbie recalled being embarrassed when she and Ryan Gosling were photographed dolled up in their matching neon rollerblading outfits while filming a scene for their new movie.
“I can’t tell you how mortified we were by the way,” the actress shared on The Tonight Show on Monday. “We look like we’re like laughing, having fun, but dying on the inside. I was like, ‘This is the most humiliating moment of my life.’ So embarrassed.”
When the show Host Jimmy Fallon asked Robbie if she realized the Barbie photos would be dissected over the internet and would eventually become the talk of the town upon release. “No!” Robbie said. “I mean, I knew that we had some exteriors to shoot in L.A. I knew, OK, once you were doing exteriors, you’re gonna get papped.”
She added, “There’s probably going to be a little crowd of people who are going to stand out, because, you know, we stand out a little bit in those outfits. So I knew there was going to be a little bit of attention, and probably some photos would get out there, but not like it did. It was like mad. It was like hundreds of people watching.”
