During a recent Vogue interview, Margot Robbie, who both produces and acts in the upcoming film “Barbie,” expressed her admiration for Gal Gadot’s beauty and energy. Robbie shared that she and director Greta Gerwig had initially planned to cast Gadot as the lead character, but scheduling conflicts, including Gadot’s role in the upcoming movie “Snow White,” prevented her from accepting the offer. Robbie praised Gadot’s Barbie-like energy and stunning appearance, noting her kind and sincere personality. It’s important to note that Sony had previously announced Amy Schumer as the lead for the same role in 2016, but she withdrew from the project a year later due to scheduling conflicts.
According to a recent report from Hollywood Reporter, Margot Robbie is set to star as Barbie in an upcoming movie. Despite being cast in the lead role, Robbie admitted that she was never a fan of playing with Barbie dolls during her childhood. Her interest in the project only began after accepting the role. In an interview with Vogue, Robbie addressed the sexualized image that comes with the Barbie doll, arguing that since it is a plastic toy without any organs, it cannot be objectified in this way. The movie, which is slated for release on July 21, will feature an all-star cast including Ryan Gosling, Will Ferrell, Simu Liu, Emma Mackey, Issa Rae, Dua Lipa, and John Cena alongside Robbie.
Warner Bros has released two trailers for the upcoming Barbie movie, featuring Margot Robbie as the iconic doll. The first trailer gives a nod to the original 1959 Barbie with Robbie donning a classic striped swimsuit. Meanwhile, the second trailer offers a closer look at the beloved characters of Barbie and Ken, played by Ryan Gosling. Originally from Dalby, Queensland, Robbie rose to fame through her role in Neighbors before landing major Hollywood roles in films like The Wolf of Wall Street, Suicide Squad, and Once Upon a Time in Hollywood. Throughout her career, she has received nominations for three Golden Globes and two Oscars.
Born on April 30, 1985 in Rosh Ha’ayin, Gal Gadot is a well-known Israeli actress and model. Her parents were an engineer and a teacher. Despite being approached by several modeling agencies, she was not interested in pursuing a career in modeling and instead wanted to become a dance teacher. After completing her mandatory two-year service in the Israel Defense Forces, she participated in the Miss Israel contest in 2004 as a fun activity, but ended up winning the title. Director Justin Lin noticed her military background while searching for an actress to play Giselle, a female monster in the Fast Furious film series, which led to her entry into the acting industry. Her remarkable performance as the lead character in the 2017 blockbuster movie Wonder Woman catapulted her to unprecedented heights of stardom on a global scale.
In 2008, Gadot tied the knot with Yaron Versano, a prosperous entrepreneur, and together they have three children. Her stunning beauty earned her the 12th spot on TC Candler’s list of the 100 most beautiful women in the world. In March 2016, she graced the London premiere of “Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice,” captured by Splash News on YouTube.
