“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.”
Anyone who’s been to Byron Bay will realise this sounds familiar. A good-looking dude with tanned abs and bleach-blonde hair not having money, a job, a car or a house… Sounds like a typical Byron man to us.
Gosling went on to say that he has “that Ken-ergy” and when asked what ‘Ken-ergy’ is, Gosling merely responded with,
“You have a Ken in your life, and you know that Ken has Ken-ergy.”
Hopefully, those Byron Bay boys, who know that they themselves also possess Ken-ergy, will go see Barbie as Gosling believes his Ken character will provide onscreen representation for a lot of men…
“I felt like I was seeing myself. I felt seen. I think a lot of Kens will feel seen when they see [Barbie].”
