Margot Robbie says she was 'mortified' when 'Barbie' photos with Ryan Gosling leaked: 'So embarrassed'
Margot Robbie wasn't quite ready to let people into her "Barbie" world when photos were leaked from set in June.
The Australian actress and Gosling, 41, wore matching neon rollerskating outfits while shooting in Venice Beach, California. They were also spotted in a matching Western cowboy look.
"I can't tell you how mortified we were by the way," Robbie said of the photo leak. "We look like we're laughing, having fun, but dying on the inside. I was like, 'This is the most humiliating moment of my life.' So embarrassed."

She figured there would be "little bit of attention and probably some photos would get out there" because they were shooting outdoors in Los Angeles. However, she didn't expect to have it reach that magnitude.
Robbie said "hundreds of people" would be watching her and Gosling film. "It was mad."

In April, Warner Bros. shared the first look picture of Robbie in Barbie's signature convertible. The Australian actress also boasted a beachy blonde hairstyle and a playful glow behind the wheel of the bubblegum pink car.
Months later in June, the movie giant shared the first look of Gosling in all his spray-tanned glory.
The Greta Gerwig film is expected to release on July 21, 2023.
Little is known about the plot, but Robbie told The Hollywood Reporter in December that the film is nothing fans will expect.
" 'Oh, Margot is playing Barbie, I know what that is,'" but our goal is to be like, 'Whatever you’re thinking, we’re going to give you something totally different — the thing you didn’t know you wanted,'" she teased.
