Ariana Greenblatt, the talented 15-year-old actress, opens up about her journey working on the forthcoming live-action Barbie film, alongside co-star Margot Robbie and a diverse array of Barbie characters.
In a recent interview with Elle magazine for their 2023 Hollywood Rising honorees, Ariana shared her excitement and gratitude about the audition process, where she got the chance to meet writer/director/producer Greta Gerwig and Margot Robbie, who also serves as a producer on the film.
Ariana confessed, “My only thought in my head was like, Look, however this goes, just cherish this moment forever [and] the fact that you get to meet these two beautiful, inspiring women just at least once. That’s all I wanted.”
The young actress also mentioned how much fun everyone had while making the movie and how it translated on camera. But what really stood out to her was a “core memory” she formed with Margot Robbie during a lunch break. Margot treated Ariana to sushi and matcha lattes, and they bonded over their love for Frank Ocean and Lana Del Rey, even playing music for each other.
Ariana reminisced, “That was just such a special moment for me that I’ll never forget because, keep in mind, we were doing this, but she was also watching trailers for movies that haven’t even come out yet…and then giving notes, and then she’s doing six things at once.”
This heartwarming story gives fans a glimpse into the close-knit relationship between the stars on the set of the Barbie movie, and it’s sure to make the anticipation for the film’s release even greater.
