Margot Robbie was seen filming scenes for the upcoming Barbie movie looking a little forlorn on Wednesday, as she continued work on the project that is now well underway in Los Angeles.

At one point during the day’s filming, the 31-year-old Australian actress was seen with her head in her hands shooting a scene in which Barbie clearly is having a bad day. 

Accompanying Margot for a second day was Oscar-nominated star Ryan Gosling who is playing her counterpart Ken – decked out in a Western-style shirt complete with embroidered flowers, fringe edging and pearl snap fasteners.

Barbie’s sorrow could be down to the synopsis of the film, which is being touted as ‘a fish-out-of-water story about a doll who is ousted from toy society for not being perfect enough’, according to a report by Vulture. 

Another synopsis on IMDB of the upcoming film 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.’ 

Will Ferrell is said to be playing the CEO of the toy company that may or may not be Mattel.

Little Women and Ladybird filmmaker Greta Gerwig is directing the project, and wrote the script for the film with her longtime partner Noah Baumbach. 

Other members of the cast include Kate McKinnon, Michael Cera, Emma Mackey, Kingsley Ben-Adir, America Ferrara, Rhea Perlman, Ariana Greenblatt, Ana Cruz Kayne, Alexandra Shipp, Ritu Arya, Sharon Rooney, Connor Swindells, Scott Evans and Jamie Demetriou.

Fans think Emma will be playing the role of Skipper, the younger sister of Barbie, thanks to her resemblance to Margot.

Also linked to the film are Bridgerton’s Nicola Coughlan, actress Saoirse Ronan and pop sensation Dua Lipa – but these have not yet been confirmed.

It has been rumoured that there will be different versions of Barbie and Ken, with one Barbie said to be portrayed by Issa Rae and the other might be Hari Nef. 

Marvel’s Simu Liu and new Doctor Who Ncuti Gatwa are also said be playing other Kens.

New York Times reporter Kyle Buchanan recently tweeted: ‘I am hearing incredible BARBIE goss at Cannes. For one, I’m hearing that Ryan Gosling is not the only Ken in the BARBIE film. Simu Liu and Ncuti Gatwa also play Ken.

‘And, by the same token, Margot Robbie is not the film’s only Barbie. Issa Rae and Hari Nef play different Barbies…’

Meanwhile, all the way back in 2016, it had originally been announced that Amy Schumer would be taking on the role – but she bowed out just four months later.

‘Sadly, I’m no longer able to commit to Barbie due to scheduling conflicts,’ she said at the time. ‘The film has so much promise, and Sony and Mattel have been great partners. I’m bummed but look forward to seeing Barbie on the big screen.’

However, later Amy admitted that it was less about scheduling and more about creative differences. ‘They definitely didn’t want to do it the way I wanted to do it, the only way I was interested in doing it,’ she told The Hollywood Reporter.

‘The idea that that’s just what every woman must want, right there, I should have gone, ‘You’ve got the wrong gal,'” she added.

In celebration of the Mattel doll’s 60th anniversary, Barbie will be released in cinemas on July 21, 2023.
