Barbie was filled with SOOO many enjoyable details and Easter eggs, each time I watch the film, I discover new issues to get enthusiastic about.
One in all my private favorites was seeing America Ferrera’s real-life husband, Ryan Piers Williams, make a cameo as her onscreen husband within the film.
In a latest interview with People, she defined simply how he ended up getting forged within the film and the way sensible their onscreen relationship in comparison with their IRL one. “We did not inform anyone, any of our associates or household,” she mentioned.
“It took place as a result of on my first Zoom with Greta [Gerwig, Barbie director/co-writer]. I used to be telling her all my favourite elements of the script and all of the elements that made me snicker out loud,” she added.
“And I mentioned, ‘Oh my God, I laughed so exhausting whenever you lower to the dad doing his Spanish classes, as a result of my husband was actually within the different room doing his Spanish classes,'” she mentioned. “Instantly, she was like, ‘Oh my God, does he need to play your husband?’ And I used to be like, ‘I do not know, you will need to ask him.'”
Then, afterward after they had been about to start filming, Greta introduced it up once more. “When it got here time, she was like, ‘Bear in mind once I requested you in case your husband would play your husband?’ And he mentioned sure,” she mentioned. “So it was actually enjoyable and it did, it made it a household affair and it was nice.”
As a result of they had been each within the film and their youngsters are nonetheless younger, they ended up shifting to the UK for a couple of months, whereas manufacturing for Barbie continued there. “[Our kids] had been younger sufficient the place I might do this, however nonetheless life occurred,” she added. “Individuals get sick, your childcare falls via, after which your partner has to step in.”
And now, all I would like is a Barbie sequel starring America and Ryan about their characters’ lives within the Actual World.
Barbie is now streaming on Max.
