Emma Mackey, who is often described as Margot's doppelgänger, will make an appearance in the flick alongside, not one but, two Sex Education co-stars – it's a reunion!

Ryan Gosling dishes details on his Ken character in the Barbie flick

In an interview with Entertainment Tonight, Ryan Gosling revealed that the character of Ken might not be what people expect in the upcoming Greta Gerwig adaptation of Barbie.

The Hollywood A-lister revealed: “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.”

“It’s not what you think it is, unless it is," the 41-year-old continued cheekily, “And then you know what it is, but I don’t think that’s what you think it is. Wait, what are we talking about?”
