The production of Warner Bros.’ highly anticipated “Barbie” film has reportedly led to a worldwide shortage of pink paint. The movie’s extravagant use of the color has left one company’s supply completely depleted, according to insiders.

Rosco, a renowned supplier of paints with strong ties to the film and television industry, revealed the startling revelation. Lauren Proud, the Vice President of Global Marketing at Rosco, shared the surprising details in an interview with The Times on Friday.

“They used up all the paint we had,” Proud stated, referring specifically to the company’s fluorescent pink paint, which was employed to create the enchanting sets for the movie’s fictional world, Barbieland.

Sarah Greenwood, the film’s production designer and a six-time Oscar nominee, spoke to Architectural Digest earlier this week about the massive amounts of pink paint required for the film’s extravagant sets. During the interview, Greenwood boldly claimed that the movie had caused a worldwide shortage of pink.

  1. Hi
    That is so funny and crazy that one movie causes a world wide shortage of pink paint

  2. Why would they think that using a lot of pink paint would be a good idea? Couldn’t they use some other coloured paint which is not pink? Now i’m guessing pink paint is going to be really expensive…

  3. It’s a sexist stereotype to assume only little girls watch barbie. I believe anyone has the right to like what they like without facing judgement. Please stop posting negative comments on this topic.

  5. to the people saying rude things:

    the barbie movie is actually a good heartfelt movie! its also funny. I recommend it

  6. To everyone who has commented about Barbie being only for little girls, it is sexist and ageist to say that only people of a certain age or gender can watch it. Please let people do what they want to, and do not judge them as long as it is not hurting anyone.
