Margot Robbie felt “self-conscious” as several Barbie set visitors only talked to Ryan Gosling and ignored her, Greta Gerwig confessed to Rolling Stone. The incident happened while filming a scene in Venice Beach, where Margot and Ryan were wearing the well-known neon outfits.

During the interview, the filmmaker also spoke about how people’s attitudes towards Margot made her feel.

“How Barbie operates in Barbieland is she’s entirely continuous with her environment. Even the houses have no walls, because you never need to hide because there’s nothing to be ashamed of or embarrassed of. And suddenly finding yourself in the real world and wishing you could hide, that’s the essence of being human. But when we were actually shooting on Venice Beach, with Margot and Ryan in neon rollerblading outfits, it was fascinating because it was actually happening in front of us.” Greta said.

“People would go by Ryan, high-five him, and say, ‘Awesome, Ryan, you look great!’ And they wouldn’t actually say anything to Margot. They’d just look at her. It was just surreal. In that moment, she did feel self-conscious. And as the director, I wanted to protect her. But I also knew that the scene we were shooting had to be the scene where she felt exposed. And she was exposed, both as a celebrity and as a lady.” she continued.
