New character details for Simu Liu’s 
Barbie movie character have emerged hinting at a popular fan theory potentially being true. The story for the long-gestating adaptation of Mattel’s toyline is currently unknown though is being described as a meta take on the property in the same vein as Jim Carrey’s 
The Truman Show. Attempts at getting a 
Barbie movie off the ground have suffered for nearly a decade, with a number of directors, writers and stars coming and going on the project.,The 
Barbie movie is currently set up at Warner Bros. with three-time Oscar nominee Greta Gerwig at the helm on a script she co-wrote with her partner, fellow Oscar nominee Noah Baumbach. Margot Robbie is both producing and leading the star-studded cast in the titular role alongside Ryan Gosling, America Ferrera, Liu, Kate McKinnon, Ariana Greenblatt, Alexandra Shipp, Emma Mackey, Kingsley Ben-Adir, Issa Rae, Michael Cera, Rhea Perlman and Will Ferrell. With production on 
Barbie having only just kicked off, audiences are hungry for further details regarding the film and one star may have shared just enough to tease his role.,Related: Barbie’s Perfect First Look Confirms Its Best Change Was Robbie,In a recent interview with 
The Independent, Simu Liu offered some insight for the ongoing 
Barbie movie production. Liu revealed he had to get his entire body waxed for the film, calling it ”
an education,” and expressing his excitement at seeing audiences trying to figure out details for his role online. See what Liu said below:,Though Liu doesn’t specifically describe any character details for his role, his discussion of having to get his body waxed for 
Barbie does seemingly point to the popular fan theory that he could be playing Ken in the film. This would also support a recent report from the Cannes Film Festival that the movie will include multiple versions of both Barbie and Ken, with Gosling already confirmed to play one version of the male doll while Issa Rae and Hari Nef will reportedly play other Barbies and recent 
Doctor Who star Ncuti Gatwa will play another Ken. Given the doll’s clean-shaven physique, Liu’s necessity to be completely waxed for the role may just be the ultimate evidence of his playing a Ken in the film.,Liu has been one of the more vocal of 
Barbie movie stars in sharing details from production on the long-awaited big-screen adaptation. The 
Shang-Chi star has described the sets as ”
vibrant and full of life” while also teasing a wild and unique dance sequence to come from the Margot Robbie film. With production still in its early stages and the film not slated to hit theaters until July 2023, audiences will have to keep their eyes peeled for further details on the 
Barbie movie and whether their fan theories will come to be.,More: Margot Robbie’s Barbie Has The Perfect Payoff For Its Funniest Casting,Source: The Independent
