Margot Robbie bursts into laughter as she outs Barbie co-star Ryan Gosling as young Hercules in forgotten nineties TV show
Most actors have a past performance they’d rather forget, and Hollywood star Ryan Gosling is no exception.
Ryan, 42, was joined by his Barbie co-star Margot Robbie, 33, in an interview with Nerdist this week, when the actress reminded him of his his regretful appearance in the Fox Kids TV series Young Hercules.
The moment occurred after Ryan seemingly laughed at Margot for admitting she liked to read fantasy novels.
‘Since Ryan’s laughing at me… I’m a huge Xena and Hercules fan, and Ryan was young Hercules,’ Margot teased.
‘And the world needs to know that. ‘The world also needs to google this right now,’ she added, before breaking into laughter.

‘This [interview] turned. This turned… I don’t know what happened,’ Ryan spluttered.
Ryan starred in Fox Kids’ Young Hercules in 1998, sporting an embarrassing hairstyle and even worse costumes to portray the titular role.
The show, which aired for less than a year, followed the young hero as he attended Chiron’s Academy to train as a warrior.

‘I was fighting imaginary monsters — they weren’t really there, but I was acting like they were there. So …’
The actor moved to New Zealand to shoot the show, which did have some movie clout in the form of executive producer Sam Raimi.
