Ryan Gosling Is Bringing Major ‘Ken -ergy’ to the Upcoming ‘Barbie’ Film
Ryan Gosling has developed the phrase “Ken-ergy” to describe his enthusiasm for playing everyone’s favorite plastic boyfriend, Ken, in the eagerly anticipated “Barbie” film.
While being interviewed about his latest Netflix action film, “The Gray Man,” the Canadian actor managed to sneak in several Ken portmanteaus. Yet even “Entertainment Tonight” couldn’t halt Ken from rising again.

Ryan Gosling Is Bringing Major Ken-ergy to ‘Barbie’
Gosling’s character is called a “Ken doll” by Chris Evans’ character in “The Gray Man,” a sly reference to Gosling’s future appearance as Barbie’s bleach-blond companion. In contrast, Gosling insisted that being branded a “Ken doll” was “not an insult at all” but rather evidence that Evans’ character had picked up on a certain feeling emanating from him.
“I have that Ken-ergy that he could feel, obviously,” he told “ET” in the first of many Ken puns. “I still feel like the Ken-ergy is alive.”
In response to host Lauren Zima‘s request for clarification, he simply doubled down: “You have a Ken in your life, and you know that Ken has Ken-ergy.”
Gosling painted a nuanced portrait of Ken, a toy with a troubled soul and an incredibly generous girlfriend, even when answering questions about his new Netflix feature.
“That Ken life is even harder than the ‘Gray Man’ life, I think,” he said. “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.”
When asked for specifics on the “Barbie” film’s plot, Gosling played coy and began to muddy the lines between our world and the film’s.
“Whatever Barbie says is exactly right,” he said. “It’s not what you think it is unless it is. 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?”
He claimed he couldn’t say more because if he did, Mattel would “box [him] up.” For whatever reason, Gosling has become adept at playing plastic instruments.
