Ryan Gosling is sun-kissed perfection in the first photo of himself in character as Ken in the upcoming Margot Robbie-fronted live-action Barbie film

The 41-year-old actor is sun-kissed perfection in the first photo of himself in character as Ken in the upcoming Margot Robbie-fronted live-action Barbie film. 

In the dreamy snapshot shared Wednesday by Warner Bros. Pictures, Gosling sports Ken's signature platinum locks (and killer six-pack!) as he poses in all light-wash denim, including an open vest and matching jeans.

Aside from Robbie, 31, in the title role and Gosling as Barbie's main squeeze, the film will also star Issa Rae, Will Ferrell, Kate McKinnon, Simu Liu, Michael Cera and America Ferrera.

"People generally hear Barbie and think, 'I know what that movie is going to be,' and then they hear that Greta Gerwig is writing and directing it, and they're like, 'Oh, well, maybe I don't... ' " Robbie told British Vogue last year.

As part of CinemaCon held in Las Vegas in April, Warner Bros. Pictures shared a first-look image of Robbie in the role of the iconic Mattel doll, along with a release date for the film: July 21, 2023.

An accompanying image in the social media post showed Suicide Squad star Robbie rocking a retro '60s vibe dressed in a blue-and-white polka-dotted headband and matching striped halter top.

She smiled as she leaned forward in a pink Chevrolet Corvette convertible, posing in front of a pink faux stone backdrop. Robbie wore a beaded bracelet and had her blonde hair done in a straight style evocative of the classic American doll.

Barbie is in theaters July 21, 2023.

Back in 2019, at the premiere of “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood,” Robbie explained why Barbie is a character worth bringing to life. “I think it’s a great opportunity to put some positivity out in the world and a chance to be aspirational for younger kids,” she told Variety’s Marc Malkin.

Directed by Gerwig, from a script the “Little Women” and “Lady Bird” filmmaker co-wrote with Noah Baumbach, the movie is a co-production by Warner Bros., Mattel and Robbie’s LuckyChap Entertainment banner. In an Aug. 2021 interview with British Vogue, Robbie teased that taking on Barbie simultaneously “comes with a lot of baggage … and a lot of nostalgic connections.”

“But with that come[s] a lot of exciting ways to attack it,” she told the mag. “People generally hear ‘Barbie’ and think, ‘I know what that movie is going to be,’ and then they hear that Greta Gerwig is writing and directing it, and they’re like, ‘Oh, well, maybe I don’t…’”

So here’s what we do know about Robbie and Gerwig’s take on the toy tale:
