Ryan Gosling and Emily Blunt have drawn a line under their Barbenheimer experiences by performing a duet of Taylor Swift’s ‘All Too Well’ on Saturday Night Live.Gosling, who played Ken in Barbie, was hosting the episode of SNL, and was joined in the opening monologue by Blunt, who played Kitty in Oppenheimer.The two, who are also co-starring in the new action comedy The Fall Guy, reflected on the difficulty in moving past such a huge phenomenon. “You know, when you play a character that hard, that long, just letting go feels like a breakup and for processing a breakup, there’s really only one thing that can help – the music of the great Taylor Swift,” said Gosling.With that, they launched into their adapted version of ‘All Too Well’, complete with choreographed backing dancers and scenery referencing both films.“I was just Ken, and now I’m just Ryan,” sang Gosling, with Blunt adding: “I used to be the alcoholic wife of a dude in a hat / Talking to Albert Einstein / Sipping a margarita / With some Christopher Nolan and a bag of vodkila”.See the sketch below:Gosling ended weeks of uncertainty by showing up at the Oscars last month and performing a showstopping version of ‘I’m Just Ken’, alongside Mark Ronson and Slash.Since then, Ronson has reflected on the legacy of the song, which he co-wrote and produced.
Ryan Gosling reveals why he originally shot down viral ‘I’m Just Ken’ performance at Oscars: ‘100 percent no’
“I’m Just Ken” at this year’s Oscars, but was persuaded to do so because of his daughters’ love for Barbie.The Canadian actor, who starred alongside Margot Robbie in the summer hit film, initially told the Academy he wasn’t interested in the live performance because anything could happen.“100 percent no,” Gosling said during his appearance Thursday night on the Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon.“There’s a lot of ways that could go wrong.”Gosling, 43, eventually agreed to put on the show, complete with backup dancers, musician Mark Ronson, and a surprise appearance by legendary “Guns N’ Roses” guitarist Slash.The performance has garnered hundreds of millions of views on social media, Spotify and Apple Music.Gosling earned an Academy Award nomination for Best Supporting Actor for his role in the Greta Gerwig film.The father of two later shared what his daughters thought when he brought them to the dress rehearsal for his now-viral performance.“Dad’s Ken-ning again,” Gosling joked. The Golden Globes winner shares the two girls with “The Place Beyond the Pines” co-star Eva Mendes.Gosling brought his daughters, 7 and 9 years old, to set to watch him play the Mattel doll-inspired character to give them context for what their father had been up to.“It was their interest in Barbie and their disinterest in Ken that sort of started all of this,” the Ken actor admitted.“It’s really been a team effort, and they were on the film and they came to set when I filmed the number,” Gosling said.
