Australian actor Margot Robbie has been spotted in new photos dressed in character as Barbie, as filming of the highly-anticipated live-action movie continues.
The 31-year-old was pictured in Los Angeles leaving her trailer on set in a hot pink flared trouser and crop with star embellishments and an iced coffee in hand.
The Wolf of Wall Street actor is starring alongside Ryan Gosling, as Ken, who is yet to be pictured on set.
Warner Bros. Pictures shared photos of the 41-year-old in character as Barbie’s counterpart last week, complete with bleached-blonde hair, double denim, washboard abs and even his own Ken branded underwear.
Little Women and Ladybird filmmaker Gerwig is directing the project, and wrote the script with American filmmaker Noah Baumbach.
Warner Bros previously revealed the film will be released in the US on July 21, 2023, as Australia awaits a confirmed release date.
The Australian sweetheart was announced to play the lead role in January 2019, after comic actor Amy Schumer reportedly pulled out of the lead position due to “creative differences”.
“Over the brand’s almost 60 years, Barbie has empowered kids to imagine themselves in aspirational roles from a princess to president,” Robbie said in a statement at the time.
“I’m so honoured to take on this role and produce a film that I believe will have a tremendously positive impact on children and audiences worldwide.”
“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,” a synopsis reads on IMDB.
Robbie spoke to The Hollywood Reporter in 2020 about landing the titular role.
“Something like Barbie where the IP, the name itself, people immediately have an idea of, “Oh Margot is playing Barbie, I know what that is,” she said.
“But our goal is to be like, “Whatever you’re thinking, we’re going to give you something totally different – the thing you didn’t know you wanted.”
