Ahead of the release of the blockbuster movie, Barbie, fitness experts have revealed the diet and workout plan that Gosling has implemented in order to transform into Ken.

Fans are eagerly awaiting the onscreen arrival of Margot Robbie as Barbie and Ryan Gosling as Ken, but there have been a number of sneak peaks showing both stars in tip top shape for their respective roles.

Getting lean for movie roles time and time again doesn’t just happen by chance or genetics, it requires strict adherence to a healthy eating plan, according to FitnessVolt.

Ryan Gosling is well-known for jumping into a regime that whips him into shape ahead of his heart-throb roles.

For instance, when he was preparing for his role in Crazy Stupid Love, his diet included fish, vegetables, rice, and protein shakes – allowing him to get lean.
