Ryan Gosling Proud to Have the Ken-ergy

The Gray Man, a new Netflix film, stars Chris Evans alongside Ryan Gosling. In the film, Evans calls Gosling a Ken doll, which he meant as an insult. 

While that’s ironic coming from someone who’s literally a human action figure, Gosling, who portrays the famous boy toy in the latest Barbie film, states that it’s “not an insult at all.”

“I’m proud of that,” Gosling said in an interview with ET Online. “I have that Ken-ergy, which he could feel, obviously, when he commented to it. I still feel like the Ken-ergy is alive.” 

The Ken-ergy is not merely alive; its plastic eyes are scrutinizing you.

However, aside from being the most fantastic kind of innuendo – cheap – what really is a “Ken-ergy”? Gosling created the term, so it can be assumed that he would also know the definition. 

Asked about the Ken-ergy term, Gosling says, “You know what I mean… no?”

“You’ve got a Ken in your life,” he added. “And you know that that Ken has… Ken-ergy.” 

Gosling then explained what a Ken is… which sounds exceptionally like a scrub: “Ken’s got no money, he’s got no job, he’s got no car, he’s got no house. He’s going through some stuff.” 

With no further details released, it is unclear what Gosling might be able to reveal about Barbie. However, Margot Robbie has assured us anything we think the Barbie film may involve will not actually happen in this movie. 

“Whatever Barbie says is exactly right,” Gosling confirmed Robbie’s statement. “It’s not what you think it is unless it is. And then you know what it is, but I don’t think that’s what you think it is. Wait, what are we talking about?” 

Perhaps that’s what Ken-ergy is! Complete agreement with Barbie, in addition to a sense of hazy confusion about what’s happening while being the hot dude he is. Oftentimes, action speaks louder than words. 

Barbie drops on July 21, and then we’ll find out what it is that Barbie isn’t.
