As she filmed scenes with her co-star Ryan Gosling , who plays Barbie’s boyfriend Ken , she was also joined on set by her husband Tom Ackerley, who serves as producer on the flick alongside Margot through their LuckyChap Entertainment company.
Barbie has been a treasure trove of pictures recently as the movies cracks on with its shoot in Los Angeles, offering fans pictures of Margot and Ryan’s glorious matching cowboy-inspired outfits and first glimpses of co-stars Will Ferrell and America Ferrera in costume.
They’ve also roller-bladed together in retro fluorescents (obsessed) and we’ve seen Margot practising her Barbie crying – and even heard a clip of what she sounds like in character as the iconic Mattel doll.
Tom, also 32, was spotted on set in sunglasses over th e weekend, in a white T-shirt and stripey trousers, and carrying a rucksack.
During a break, Margot was reportedly seen chatting to her British husband, who she wed in 2016 in a private ceremony.
Ryan and Margot were also busy with more scenes though, with Drive star Ryan snapped once again in his incredible neon roller-blading get-up – truly bringing bumbags back single-handedly? – while his co-star donned a loose white shirt over her leotard and opted for comfy slippers in a break from the skating.
In their western gear, the two stars were seen striding together and smiling, while they also held hands and appeared to try out a synchronised shoulder swagger at one point.
Ryan, 41, was also spotted approaching Margot on a bus stop bench as they appeared to practise a scene together where he surprised her, judging by the script in Ryan’s hand and the animated expression on Margot’s face.
Director Greta Gerwig, who also penned the screenplay with help from her partner Noah Baumbach, was also photographed in pink trainers and a wide-brimmed hat as she sat with Margot in Barbie costume on the bench, either side of an older lady holding a newspaper, who Margot was in conversation with.
There have been many rumours over the exact plot line for the movie, although nothing has yet been officially revealed.
The synopsis for the film on IMDb reads: ‘A doll living in Barbieland is expelled for not being perfect enough and sets off on an adventure in the real world. A live-action feature film based on the popular line of Barbie toys.’
Many are also expecting a Meta aspect to the storyline with Will Ferrell reportedly appearing as the CEO of a toy company, which his recent appearance in a pink tie and business wear on set might back up.
Other actors in the star-studded cast include new Doctor Who Ncuti Gatwa, Saturday Night Live star Kate McKinnon, Marvel superhero Simu Liu and more, with whispers Simu could be playing another Ken doll and Ncuti’s Sex Education co-star Emma Mackey might be Barbie’s little sister Skipper, thanks to her resemblance to Margot.
Barbie is due to hit cinemas on July 21, 2023.
