Margot Robbie was seen filming scenes for the upcoming Barbie movie on Wednesday as she continued to work on the project which is now well underway in Los Angeles.
At one point during the day’s filming, the 31-year-old Australian actress was seen with her head in her hands filming a scene in which Barbie is clearly having a bad day.
Accompanying Margot for a second day is Oscar-nominated star Ryan Gosling who plays his counterpart Ken – dressed in a western-style shirt with embroidered flowers, fringed trims and pearlescent snaps.

Barbie’s heartbreak may be due to the film’s synopsis, which is billed as “a fish-out-of-water story about a doll who is ousted from toy society because she’s not perfect enough,” according to a Vulture report.
Another synopsis on IMDB of the upcoming film reads, “A doll living in ‘Barbieland’ is kicked out for not being perfect enough and embarks on a real-world adventure.” A live-action feature film based on the popular Barbie line of toys.
Will Ferrell is said to play the CEO of the toy company which may or may not be Mattel.

Meanwhile, in 2016 it was originally announced that Amy Schumer would take on the role – but she pulled out four months later.
“Unfortunately, I can no longer engage with Barbie due to scheduling conflicts,” she said at the time. “The movie has so much promise, and Sony and Mattel have been great partners. I’m disappointed but can’t wait to see Barbie on the big screen.
