Ryan Gosling shares the peculiar reason he agreed to play Ken in ‘Barbie’ movie



As it turns out, a love for denim jackets is not the reason actor Ryan Gosling agreed to play Ken in Greta Gerwig’s “Barbie.”

Gosling appeared on a segment of “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” on Thursday, speaking to the host about his “Barbie” origin story.

Although Fallon pointed to a Vanity Fair article highlighting Gosling’s love for jean jackets over the years as an indicator of why he chose to play Ken, the actor had a different answer.

After receiving the offer to play Ken from Gerwig, Gosling said he walked out into his backyard to find a peculiar sight.

“I walk out in the backyard, and do you know where I found Ken, Jimmy?” Gosling asked. “Facedown in the mud next to a squished lemon.”

The pair joked that this picture was a sign the actor must play Ken in the movie, which he said was the “best script I’ve ever read.”

“I texted (the picture) to Greta and I said, ‘I shall be your Ken, for his story must be told,'” Gosling said.

The cast of the “Barbie” movie includes other well-known names like Margot Robbie, Kate McKinnon, Issa Rae and more. The movie is set to premiere next summer, and the official plot details are still under wraps. But some early tease pictures have revealed some aspects of the movie, including Gosling’s bleached blonde hair and boy-band look.

The picture “broke the internet,” as Fallon told Gosling, with fans loving the actor’s Ken energy. But Gosling said the internet reaction surprised him.

“I was surprised by how, you know, some people were kind of clutching their pearls about my Ken as if they ever thought about Ken for a second before this,” Gosling joked. “They never played with Ken!”

But while Gosling has made his opinion on where Ken stands in the official “Barbie” rankings — “an accessory, and not even one of the cool ones” — early internet reactions to the teases are clear indicators of how excited viewers are to see Gosling star in the iconic movie.

Britney Spears Asks Fans for Privacy After Police Called to Her House



Britney Spears is reacting to fans calling authorities to perform a wellness check at her home this week, noting that it’s an invasion of her privacy and a line she’s imploring her fans to not cross again.

The 41-year-old singer on Thursday took to Twitter and made her plea directly to fans after cops paid her home a visit shortly after she deleted her Instagram account. TMZ reported that, for unknown reasons, fans grew concerned about yet another deactivation of her social media account, prompting them to call the Ventura County Sheriff’s Office.

But Britney was none too pleased.

“As everyone knows the police were called to my home based on some rank phone calls,” she said in a statement shared on Twitter. “I love and adore my fans but this time things went a little too far and my privacy was invaded.”

She added that deputies never entered her home and quickly realized there was no issue and left immediately. The checkup left her feeling “gaslit” and “bullied,” she said.

“This felt like I was being gaslit and bullied once the incident made it to the news and being portrayed once again in a poor and unfair light by the media,” she continued. “During this time in my life, I truly hope the public and my fans who I care so much about can respect my privacy moving forward. All the love, B.”

It’s the second time in as many months that either Britney or her husband, Sam Asghari, has asked for privacy. Sam made a similar plea back in December after fans expressed concerns over Britney’s social media activity and her absence from public events.

“Social media can be traumatizing. Sometimes it’s good to take a break,” Sam wrote in a series of posts shared to his Instagram Stories. “She has her voice and is a free woman.”

He added, “I have respect for her privacy and I protect it at all times… Out of respect for her privacy, I don’t post her 247. I ask for permission if I ever do.”

That particular post came on the heels of speculation that the pop icon isn’t actually in control of her social media. Britney later returned to Instagram and explained how she accidentally deactivated it.

People Are Sharing Their Buy Now, Pay Later Regrets, And It’s Sadly Relatable



Finally, some people said that using BNPL backfired on them after unexpected events shook up their budgets.

“I made several purchases using BNPL. It worked out for the best… at first. But then things started getting lean and money became tight due to being off work following an on-the-job injury, and then it turned sour on me. I was without an income for a while until my worker’s comp benefits started. I struggled; I focused on my basic expenses and paid the rent and utilities, bought food and gas. My accounts have since been sent to collections and I regularly get texts, phone calls and emails about it…and there is nothing I can do about it, short of filing bankruptcy.

BNPL is NOT like a credit card. You can’t make monthly payments or arrange to skip a payment or use payment protection or whatever. These companies will hound you until the end of time for their money.

It’s just not worth it. It’s really not.”

—Shannon, 43

Jessica Biel celebrates husband Justin Timberlake’s 42nd birthday with sunny photos



Justin Timberlake is officially 42!

The pop star’s wife, Jessica Biel, celebrated her husband’s birthday with a sweet post on Instagram.

“Happy birthday to the person who challenges and inspires me every day. The person who keeps me laughing and creating and risking it all,” she wrote on Jan. 31. “The person who makes the ordinary extraordinary. You know who you are. I love you.”

In the photos, the couple appears to be on a boat somewhere sunny and warm to celebrate the big day.

Timberlake and Biel started dating in 2007 and eventually tied the knot at the Borgo Egnazia resort in Fasano, Italy, in 2012.

They renewed their vows in Italy last year in honor of their 10th anniversary.

When Biel visited TODAY in November 2022 she explained it’d been an “intimate” ceremony with only a “couple of our friends.”

“We literally barely put this thing together. We almost canceled it,” she told TODAY’s Hoda Kotb and Jenna Bush Hager. “We thought, ‘Oh, is this silly? Are we going to feel goofy doing this?’ And, actually, it was so moving.”

She added that as parents of two young sons — Silas, 7, and Phineas, 2 — they try to make time for just themselves.

“Justin always says, he goes, ‘We cannot stop dating. We have to keep dating.’ That’s always what he says, and he’s right,” she said. “You got to go on date nights. You have to take that time for yourself. It’s so hard,” she said.

“I’m trying to take my own advice. I’m not good at it. I’m still working on finding that balance in my life.”

In a post for their 10th anniversary on Oct. 19, Timberlake celebrated his marriage to Biel with a sweet note.

“10 years ain’t enough!” he captioned the slideshow. “You make me a better husband and father every day! I love you so much you beautiful human! Run it back!”
