Ryan Gosling planned out his cute 'I'm Just Ken' moment with Emma Stone at the Oscars
  • Ryan Gosling stole the show at the Oscars on Sunday with his performance of "I'm Just Ken."

  • He shared moments with his "Barbie" costars, director Greta Gerwig, and longtime friend Emma Stone.

  • Gosling told Business Insider it was fun reuniting with Stone: "I'll work with her any chance I get."

Ryan Gosling may not have won the best supporting actor trophy at the Academy Awards on Sunday, but he did win the whole show with his "I'm Just Ken" performance.

Gosling's rendition of the Oscar-nominated "Barbie" song brought down the house, but one detail in particular had fans excited: his reunion with former costar Emma Stone.

On the red carpet for the premiere of his new action-comedy film "The Fall Guy" at the SXSW Film & TV Festival on Tuesday, Gosling spoke to Business Insider about the viral moment.

"Her dress ripped!" Gosling laughed. (Stone accepted her best actress Oscar with a busted gown later in the show and joked during her speech that she was pretty sure the wardrobe malfunction happened because she was so excited during Gosling's performance of "I'm Just Ken.")

The actor, who previously starred with Stone in "Crazy, Stupid, Love" and "La La Land," said it was "so fun" interacting with his longtime friend during the performance.

"I'll work with her any chance I get, you know? And that was my chance in that moment," Gosling told BI. "It's always fun."

During the performance, Gosling also shared moments with "Barbie" director Greta Gerwig and his costars Margot Robbie and America Ferrera. According to choreographer Mandy Moore, who worked with Gosling on planning the performance, Gosling felt strongly about paying respect to the women and wanted to make sure Robbie, Gerwig, and Ferrera were seated right in front of him.

"Then when we saw the seating plot, and I was like, 'Emma is right there. Why don't you go to those three first?' — because he was like, 'I just need to pay respect to these ladies. They are amazing. And they're the whole reason I'm here,'" Moore told The Hollywood Reporter.

"Then I was like, 'Why don't you do the second one to Emma? She's right there. It'd be such a good little Easter egg for everybody. You've done so many films with her,'" Moore continued.

Moore told Variety that Gosling even picked out the specific line he wanted to share with Stone during the performance.

"He was pretty clear about his overall structure of it," the choreographer told Variety of Gosling's work plotting out the performance.

Stone, for her part, said in the post-Oscars pressroom that she had a blast interacting with Gosling during the performance — busted dress and all.

"I genuinely do think I busted it during 'I'm Just Ken,'" she said, per The Hollywood Reporter. "I was so amazed by Ryan and what he was doing and that number just blew my mind and I was right there and I was going for it and things happened."

While his character in "The Fall Guy," washed-up stuntman Colt Seavers, is no Ken, you can see Gosling flex his comedy chops again when the movie hits theaters on May 3.
