Issa Rae Spills on Partying With Her ‘Barbie’ Co-Stars After Filming (Exclusive)


Come on Barbie cast, let’s go party!

Issa Rae spoke to ET’s Ash Crossan at the Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse premiere Tuesday, where she spilled the tea on hanging with her Barbie co-stars after filming.

“We went out together at a club night, we had a couple of other crazy nights, so, she was all about facilitating bonding time,” Rae said of the film’s director, Greta Gerwig, who hosted Barbie and un-Barbie events for the star-studded cast, which includes the likes of Margot Robbie, Ryan Gosling, Simu Liu and more. “I’m grateful for it. We were better for it. We did a lot of un-Barbie-like activities off-set.”

Rae also couldn’t help but gush about Spider-Verse, particularly her character, Jessica Drew, a.k.a. Spider-Woman.

“I’m super proud of how dope she is. How unapologetic,” she explained. “She is the only spider person who doesn’t wear a mask, and she’s just out here with her face, ‘This is who I am, I’m kicking a** and I’m trying to save the multi-verse, and I’m not hiding any of that.'”

Across the Spider-Verse shows Miles (voiced by Shameik Moore) meeting more Spider-People as he reunites with Gwen Stacy (Hailee Steinfeld) for a new adventure. This time, he’s battling the multiverse-traversing The Spot and dealing with an adversary that hits closer to home — Oscar Isaac’s Miguel O’Hara, aka Spider-Man 2099 and his Spider-Force of multiverse protectors, which includes Rae’s Drew, Spider-Punk (Daniel Kaluuya), and Spider-Man India (Karan Soni). 

As for what she learned about herself while making the sequel to 2018’s Oscar-winning animated feature, Rae said it’s inspired her to be braver.

“I mean, if anything I’ve learned that I need to step my game up and be a bit braver. I think if anything, this has just made me a bigger fan of the Spider-Verse, and it has made me a bit nerdier in terms of immersing myself in the world and understanding the lore a bit more,” Rae said. “I thought I was a fan, but this makes me want to get deeper.”

Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse swings into theaters on June 2.
