Timothée Chalamet told Greta Gerwig that he should have been in the 'Barbie' movie after visiting the set

  • Greta Gerwig revealed that Timothée Chalamet regrets not being in the "Barbie" movie after visiting the set.

  • She told Hollywood First Look she tried to get him and Saoirse Ronan to have cameos in the film.

  • "It makes me feel like I'm without my — they feel like my children," the "Barbie" director said.

Greta Gerwig revealed that Timothée Chalamet regrets not being in the "Barbie" movie after a visit to the set.

Speaking in an interview with Hollywood First Look, the "Barbie" filmmaker said that Chalamet popped by the film location once and was bummed that he couldn't appear in the movie.

Gerwig said that she tried to get longtime collaborators Chalamet and Saoirse Ronan to have cameo appearances in the film, although they had to turn it down due to scheduling conflicts.

"I tried to get them both in it," Gerwig said. "I really did, and they both couldn't do it. Although Timothée did come by the set and then said, 'Oh I should have been in this,' And I was like, 'I know! Why aren't you in this?'"

Both Chalamet and Ronan starred in Gerwig's Oscar-nominated films "Lady Bird" and "Little Women."

Gerwig went on to explain that Chalamet and Ronan were almost like her children, and it felt strange doing the "Barbie" film without them.

"It makes me feel like I'm without my — they feel like my children," Gerwig said in the interview.

Chalamet and Ronan are not the only actors who missed out on being in the "Barbie" film. Others who almost joined the cast of the blockbuster summer hit include Anne Hathaway and Gal Gadot.

The "Barbie" film has been a hit since it was released in cinemas in July, crossing the $1 billion mark at the box office earlier this month.
