The Oscar nominee earned $12.5 million for Barbie, But that’s not all: her co-star, Ryan Gosling, got the same number.
The viralization of the article Variety sparked a controversy. Although Robbie ensured equal pay (topic on which the actresses have been speaking in recent years), he was paid an identical salary to Gosling, when it comes to a film that has Barbie leading the narrative. Robbie is also one of the producers of the Greta Gerwig feature film.
The figure that ranks 18th on the list is Millie Bobby Brown, who will collect 10 million dollars for the sequel to Enola Holmes, thus becoming the highest paid actress in Hollywood under the age of 20 (the star of stranger things has 18).
In dialogue with MTVnews, Gosling assured that he was born to play Ken in the film live action of Gerwig. “There has always been a Ken in me, he is the character I was born to be. I feel this ‘Ken-ergy’ and the ‘Ken-ergy’ is alive in me now,” the actor stated.

Also, in the picture it looked tan, smiling, wearing a vest denim and his bare abs. All very beachy, relaxed, and with the omnipresent bubblegum pink.
That was the second official photo of the film, since In April, the star of the film, Robbie, had been presented, just as smiling as his colleague, only on top of a pink convertible. Gerwig was inspired by the famous line of toys from the Mattel company for the script she wrote with her partner, director Noah Baumbach.

“When I talk about a Barbie movie, people tell me that they are already imagining where the story can go, but the moment Gerwig’s name appears as director, everyone begins to doubt. No one is sure of the direction it can take“, express Margot Robbie, who produced the film with LuckyChap Entertainment along with Tom Ackerley from the same production company, Robbie Brenner from Mattel and David Heyman.
