As for his role in Barbie, Gosling admitted that it was his daughters who pushed him to embrace the role of Ken. Speaking with Jimmy Fallon, the star said, “It was their interest in Barbie and their disinterest in Ken that sort of started all of this, and, you know, obviously, it’s really been a team effort, and they were on the film, and they came to set when I filmed the number.” Bringing them to set to watch his big dance number, Gosling added, “It was so fun because they came to the dress rehearsal the day before, and so they were in the front row.”

With SNL featuring both Stapleton and Gosling, be sure to tune in tonight with the newest episode airing live at 11:30 p.m. ET/PT on NBC.
