Irish actor Andrew Scott shares thoughts on why Barbie movie resonates with gay men

Barbie movie’s feminist themes are incredibly empowering for girls and women, and Dublin-born actor Andrew Scott told Soho House about the impact the film had on gay men as well, particularly those who wished they could play with dolls when they were children.Speaking to Soho House’s editorial director, Teo van den Broeke, the actor talked about how it’s common for gay boys to feel “attracted towards stuff that might be perceived as more feminine” before learning that society deems it “unacceptable”. According to Scott, this is why the Barbie film resonated with men who grew up either not being allowed to play with dolls or having to conceal their dolls from friends and family.
