Similarly, Greta Gerwig even claimed that she is currently in a twilight condition with her weight gain physique following the arrival of her baby. The renowned director, who directed the newest Barbie movie, said,
The little guy is sleeping through the night. But I'm still doing that thing where I wake up, every hour to 90 minutes, and just hover. You just keep wanting to look at that baby. So I'm slightly in a twilight state.
According to the reports, Greta Gerwig will turn 40 in August, as a result, the Hollywood actress has now become determined to start her acting career more outrageous by maintaining her overweight physique. She wants to be more daring with her fashion choices in particular. Greta, who began dating Noah in 2011, explained,
I want to start being more playfully outrageous. I don’t want to be 80 and look back and say I could have really done it, from 40 to 60, but I chose to be practical! But we will see how far I get with this. I'll probably look back and say, 'That was a really an amazing time. And I don't know how all of it was possible.' But it’s filled with a lot of happiness.

Likely, Greta Gerwig also discussed how she was adamant about hiring Ryan Gosling as Ken, recalling the difficult path she and Margot Robbie went through to persuade the actor. Eventually, he accepted his role as Ken and stated that he never regretted his decision. Going into the serious effort that Greta and Margot put into Barbie, Gosling thought himself privileged to be a part of such a highly anticipated film.
However, there is a secret beneath Ryan Gosling's portrayal in the summer blockbuster. According to reports, Margot Robbie had to bribe the actor into accepting the part. In order to get Ryan to sign on, Margot confessed, “I will give you a present every single day if you come to do this movie.” Claiming how it became a full-on deal between her and Gosling, she added, “I think that was the deal clincher”.
Furthermore, Ryan Gosling also later revealed that he was given puka shells, beach-related things, horse mats, and horse boots in exchange for accepting the part. The actor even stated that Greta Gerwig's Barbie was the finest present he ever received, adding that working with Margot Robbie was a fortunate occurrence.
