HE dressed up for the upcoming Barbie movie.
But Ryan Gosling fans online are horrified by the bleached blonde hair, stonewashed double-denim and white boxer shorts he wears to play his friend Ken.
One called the 41-year-old Hollywood hunk’s makeover “actually terrifying,” while another asked, “How did you NOT get Ryan Gosling hot?
I was just as ready to walk the streets of London as a living doll and measure the reaction. . .
First was a spray tan.
Next, I cut off the sleeves of a denim jacket and smeared “Ken” onto my tights, then it was on to a wig and makeup – sneaky shading for a six-pack look.
All done, I was on my way.
As Ken would say, “C’mon Barbie, let’s party!”
My first encounter was devastating: “Oh my god, you look like Donald Trump!”
But then the party started. “This is my idea of perfection”
Nadia Abdullah, 24, told me. “Blonde, blue eyes, tan, belly.”
She and her friend Jamila Nola, 27, were then all over me, hands very close to my crotch.
“We want the goods!” they sang, to my shock and delight.
I had gone from being an average looking brummie boy to a baby magnet.
Two tourists then wanted a selfie – and when I posed, a woman across the street shook in shock.
“That’s Ryan Gosling!” she yelled before being corrected.
I was also a hit with all ages. Aija Siitonen, 64, ignored her husband’s scowl as she told me with a wink, “You’re doing better than Ryan.”
Waiting for a haircut in Borough Market, Andrew Foster, 66, felt like copying my style.
He said: “It’s the only color I’ve never had and it looks good. All Annie Lennox.”
But Josh, 30, chimed in: “It looks very fake — Californian.”
Next, I spoke to a trio of Love Island fans.
Molly Blay, 19, said: “Some guys on the show are a little weird and would love that. It’s unique.”
Gabbi Wolfe simply said, “Bad!”
But Gilbert Kabwende, 20, said: “Ryan doesn’t wear it well but you do.”
Despite people comparing me to a Backstreet Boy, H from Steps, and Trump, London kind of liked my Ken look — and so did I.
