“这是, in my humble opinion, the ultimate example of high art and low art,” Ferrell told the outlet of the film, written by “art-house icons” Gerwig, 39, 和她 Marriage Story director partner Noah Baumbach.
“It’s a loving homage to the brand and, at the same time, couldn’t be more satirical,” Ferrell said. “Just an amazing comment on male patriarchy and women in society and why Barbie’s criticized and yet why every little girl still wants to play with Barbie.”
Ferrell added that his reaction to reading Barbie‘s script was: “This is fantastic.” He also spoke about his character in the film, which makes for Gerwig’s first since 2019’s 小女人.
“I get to play the CEO of Mattel and be that guy who’s just insensitive but weird and then, not to spoil anything, but…. Anyway, that’s what excites me,” Ferrell told the outlet about his part in the movie.
The actor was spotted in June on the Los Angeles set of Barbie wearing a pink dress shirt and tie. 当时, 好莱坞报道 reported that Ferrell is playing a toy company CEO, citing sources.
