Ryan Gosling’s Ken Sounds Like Every Byron Bay Man

Life in plastic, it's fantastic.

Ryan Gosling’s Ken Sounds Like Every Byron Bay Man

I think it’s safe to say that most people are pretty hyped for Greta Gerwig’s Barbie film that’s coming to cinemas next year – but Byron Bay men should be extra excited…

Australian actress Margot Robbie is set to star as the titular character that’s based on the popular Mattel doll and Ryan Gosling is playing her famous beau Ken.

And in a recent interview during the premiere of The Gray Man with Entertainment Tonight, Gosling spoke about Ken.

“Ken’s got no money, he’s got no job, he’s got no car, he’s got no house. He’s going through some stuff.”

Anyone who’s been to Byron Bay will realise this sounds familiar. A good-looking dude with tanned abs and bleach-blonde hair not having money, a job, a car or a house… Sounds like a typical Byron bloke to us.

Gosling went on to say that he has “that Ken-ergy” and when asked what ‘Ken-ergy’ is, Gosling merely responded with,

“You have a Ken in your life, and you know that Ken has Ken-ergy.”

Confused? So are we.

Hopefully, those Byron Bay boys, who know that they themselves also possess Ken-ergy, will go see Barbie as Gosling believes his Ken character will provide onscreen representation for a lot of men…

“I felt like I was seeing myself. I felt seen. I think a lot of Kens will feel seen when they see [Barbie].”

C’mon Barbie, let’s go party indeed.
