Why did Ryan Gosling agree to play Ken in the upcoming “Barbie?”

Ryan did say that the script was the “best script I’ve ever read,” but he didn’t make the decision to say yes until he went into his backyard to “think about it.”

While he was there, he found a Ken doll “face-down in the mud next to a squished lemon.”

Ryan took a photo of it, sent it to director and co-writer Greta Gerwig and said “I shall be your Ken. For his story must be told.”
