Margot Robbie envisioned Gal Gadot to play the role of Barbie because she is "so impossibly beautiful." However, Wonder Woman wasn’t available.
During the conversation with Vogue, Robbie said that she didn’t even own a Barbie when she was a kid but her cousin had lots of Barbie dolls and the actress used to go to her house. However, Robbie mostly used to play with trucks and built forts with her cousin so the Barbie is not exactly a dream role for her. Margot Robbie said, "This is going to sound stupid, but I really didn’t even think about playing Barbie until years into developing the project."
