America Ferrera Explains Her Husband’s Cameo In Barbie

Barbie was stuffed with SOOO many enjoyable particulars and Easter eggs, each time I watch the film, I discover new issues to get enthusiastic about.

One in every of my private favorites was seeing America Ferrera’s real-life husband, Ryan Piers Williams, make a cameo as her onscreen husband within the film.

And never solely that, however within the remaining scene the place Gloria, Sasha, and Gloria’s husband drop off Barbie at her gynecologist appointment, he says “Si se puede.” Other than being a Spanish political assertion, it was famously utilized in America’s film Gotta Kick It Up!

In a latest interview with Individuals, she defined simply how he ended up getting solid within the film and the way life like their onscreen relationship in comparison with their IRL one. “We did not inform anyone, any of our associates or household,” she mentioned.

“It took place as a result of on my first Zoom with Greta [Gerwig, Barbie director/co-writer]. I used to be telling her all my favourite elements of the script and all of the elements that made me snigger out loud,” she added.

“And I mentioned, ‘Oh my God, I laughed so onerous while you minimize to the dad doing his Spanish classes, as a result of my husband was actually within the different room doing his Spanish classes,'” she mentioned. “Instantly, she was like, ‘Oh my God, does he need to play your husband?’ And I used to be like, ‘I do not know, you may need to ask him.'”

Then, afterward after they have been about to start filming, Greta introduced it up once more. “When it got here time, she was like, ‘Keep in mind after I requested you in case your husband would play your husband?’ And he mentioned sure,” she mentioned. “So it was actually enjoyable and it did, it made it a household affair and it was nice.”

As a result of they have been each within the film and their youngsters are nonetheless younger, they ended up transferring to the UK for a couple of months, whereas manufacturing for Barbie continued there. “[Our kids] have been younger sufficient the place I may do this, however nonetheless life occurred,” she added. “Individuals get sick, your childcare falls by way of, after which your partner has to step in.”

And now, all I need is a Barbie sequel starring America and Ryan about their characters’ lives within the Actual World.

Barbie is now streaming on Max.
