Oliver Stone has criticized Ryan Gosling for playing the role of ‘Ken’ in the blockbuster movie Barbie, suggesting that the actor should focus on ‘more serious films.’
In an interview with City AM, the American director shared his opinion on Greta Gerwig's movie and stated that Ryan is wasting his time by doing films like 'Barbie.'
"Ryan Gosling is wasting his time if he’s doing that shit for money," said the JFK creator.
The 77-year-old director added, "He should be doing more serious films. He shouldn’t be a part of this infantilization of Hollywood. Now it’s all fantasy, fantasy, fantasy, including all the war pictures: fantasy, fantasy."
Ryan, in his recent interview with E! News, revealed that his daughters’ love for Barbie inspired him to play the role of Ken.
"I knew that they loved it because they kept saying at first, ‘Hey, can we go to Target?’ And we go to Target, and then they'd slowly go by the Barbie aisle," the La La Land actor said.
"And my wife and I sort of realized, ‘OK, I think it's time to let them have Barbies.’ And no interest in Ken, which was pretty interesting, too," Ryan explained.
