In a recent interview with Time, the singer briefly shares insights about her experiences on the sets of “Barbie” and “Argylle.”

Dua Lipa maintains a nonchalant attitude towards her recent film roles. In a recent interview with Time 100 Most Influential People, the Grammy winner discussed her upcoming third studio album, “Radical Optimism,” along with her recent ventures in cinema.

During the conversation, the Grammy winner talked about her involvement in “Argylle” and “Barbie” over the past year. In the 2023 hit film “Barbie,” she collaborated with music producer Mark Ronson on the Best Original Song-nominated track “Dance the Night,” which served as the film’s inaugural single. Additionally, Lipa contributed an original song for the Greta Gerwig-directed movie and made a brief cameo appearance as “Mermaid Barbie.”

In addition to her role in the summer blockbuster, the 28-year-old popstar also starred in the comedic mystery film “Argylle,” which premiered in February. Playing the villainous character LaGrange, Lipa appeared in the 139-minute-long movie for approximately 15 minutes.

Reflecting on these experiences, Lipa described her roles in both films as her “little baby roles.”

“I thoroughly enjoyed my time on set,” the multi-talented artist shared. “I relish the opportunity to inhabit different characters and immerse myself in a specific role.”

“I also find it exhilarating to transform my appearance during photo shoots,” she added. “It allows me to adopt a whole new persona.”

“I had a wonderful experience working on the movie,” the star told Vogue about her role in Barbie ahead of the film’s premiere on July 21, 2023. “It was incredibly exciting to be part of such a special project with an amazing cast. I feel fortunate that [director] Greta Gerwig invited me to portray the mermaid.”

Following the frenzy of Barbie, the Future Nostalgia vocalist confided to Vanity Fair in December 2023 that she felt as though she were “keeping the world’s biggest secret” from the song to her brief cameo, expressing how the experience “was enjoyable and thrilling.”

“It was a whirlwind,” she elaborated to Vanity Fair. “One day, I’d be donning four different colored wigs and a mermaid tail, and the next, I’d be flying to get onstage and engage in something entirely different.”
