Why Margot Robbie was ‘mortified’ when Barbie photos went viral

Looks like life in plastic isn’t always fantastic.

During the September 19 episode of The show tonight, Margot Robbie remembered feeling totally embarrassed after she and Ryan Gosling were pictured in their matching neon rollerblade outfits while filming a scene for their new movie Barbie.

“I can’t tell you how mortified we were by the way,” the 32-year-old actress told the late night host jimmy fallon while reviewing the photos. “It feels like we’re laughing, having fun, but dying inside. I was like, ‘This is the most humbling moment of my life.'”

Robbie, who plays Barbie, and Gosling, who plays Ken, were filming a scene in Los Angeles in June. And while the Me Tonya star expected there to be paparazzi and a few crowds of people, admitting they did “stand out a bit in those outfits” – she hadn’t expected there would be so many onlookers or that photos of her and Gosling in costume would go viral.

“I knew there would be some attention and some photos would probably get out there, but not the way they did,” she said. “It was, like, crazy. It was, like, hundreds of people watching.”
