During an appearance on The One Show, the actor made fun of the garish ensemble, and when Roman Kemp asked if he thought the picture would become “the biggest on the planet”, to which the actor replied: “No, I didn’t.”

He was asked what his “wife” Eva Mendes thought of his Ken. However, while the pair have been together since 2011, they are not believed to be married despite several reports claiming they had wed in secret over the years.

Brushing over the comment, Gosling replied, “She’s been very supportive. She’s supporting my Kenergy. She started a hashtag, That’s My Ken, which meant a lot to me.”

He also joked, ‘You know, I could tell you that The Gray Man would be Ken’s favourite movie.”
