When Amy was cast as Barbie, people saw promise with it as she didn’t fit the doll’s “unhealthy beauty standards.” Meaning, she had a body that every woman and girl can actually relate to. Plus, the film is slated to be a comedy about Barbie being living away from her posh and perfect world.
With Anne taking over, people might be taken aback by it. But Vanity Fairpointed out that she can act in comedy films (See: Bride Wars and The Princess Diaries). This could also be an out let for Anne to “lampoon herself” for being seen as “too perfect,” just like Barbie.
Anyway, who else is excited to see the film? What do you think about Anne playing Barbie?
