Director Oliver Stone Didn’t Like Ryan Gosling Starring in ‘Barbie’

It seems Ryan Gosling and Oliver Stone are on track to win the award for “Least Likely to Collaborate.” Hold onto your popcorn, because the acclaimed director just unleashed a verbal storm on Gosling, and it’s juicier than a watermelon on a summer day.

Picture this: Ryan, heartthrob extraordinaire, dared to step into the shoes of Ken in the movie Barbie. Now, before you roll your eyes and think, “Oh, just another Barbie movie,” let me tell you, Ryan’s performance was so good, he practically had Ken questioning his own existence. Awards were raining down like confetti at a New Year’s Eve party. But guess who wasn’t clapping along? That’s right, our dear friend Oliver Stone.

Stone, four-time Oscar winner, took a break from his serious films to throw some shade at Gosling. According to Stone, Ryan is wasting his time in the land of pink convertibles and dream houses. “He should be doing more serious films,” Stone declared to CityAM, as if playing Ken is a crime against cinema. Someone get this man a Barbie doll to de-stress.

Stone scoffed at the idea of directing Barbie 2, with a Mattel boss playfully suggesting the gig. “Ridiculous,” Stone bellowed, as if the mere thought of directing a plastic fantastic sequel was beneath him. The man who brought us Platoon and JFK has no time for dolls – talk about a missed career opportunity.

Stone didn’t stop there; he went on a rampage against Hollywood’s love affair with fantasy. “Now it’s all fantasy, fantasy, fantasy,” he lamented, as if Hollywood recently turned into a theme park for unicorns and wizards. Even the Fast and Furious movies, once his guilty pleasure, are now victims of this infantilization epidemic, according to Stone. How many crashes can one endure, he wonders? Clearly, not as many as he’d like.

And hold onto your seatbelts, because Stone took a detour to slam the John Wick franchise. Yes, the one with Keanu Reeves doing mind-boggling stunts for your viewing pleasure. Stone watched it on a plane and, with all the enthusiasm of a sloth on sleeping pills, declared, “It’s like the world has degenerated into non-logic.” Sorry, Mr. Wick, but Stone is not feeling the logic in your world of high-octane action.

Hollywood’s serious heavyweight, Oliver Stone, throwing punches at Barbie, Fast and Furious, and John Wick. Who knew plastic dolls and fast cars could ruffle so many feathers? Stay tuned for the next episode of “Stone vs. Pop Culture,” coming soon to a theater near you.
