Margot Robbie has been seen as Barbie in many leaks, but the actress says the attention has been humiliating and mortifying.
Although Margot Robbie has gone on record on several occasions about how unexpected her Barbie will be the film, it seems that being photographed and filmed during the filming of the film has proven to be a “mortifying” experience for the suicide squad star. Any movie production that hits the streets to shoot scenes has come to be expected to draw the attention of bystanders and paparazzi, and when you’re decked out in a shocking pink lycra, it’s sure to turn heads. Robbie appeared on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon when the theme of Barbie appeared Speaking of the leaked images and videos, he said:
“I can’t tell you how mortified we were, by the way. It looks like we’re laughing and having fun, but we’re dying inside. Dying. I was like, this is the most humiliating time of my life. I mean, I knew we had some exteriors to filming in Los Angeles. I knew once you were doing exteriors, you were going to be photographed. There’s probably going to be a small crowd of people who will notice because, you know, we stand out a little bit in those outfits. So I knew there was going to be a little bit of attention, and probably some pictures would come out, but not like he did. It was like crazy. It was like hundreds of people watching all the time.”
Simu Liu recently praised Robbie and the Barbie Movie
Margot Robbie has claimed since 2020 that the Barbie The movie would “subvert expectations,” and while the set leaks seem to show exactly the kind of Barbie character you’d expect, it’s clearly the story that will make the movie stand out. That’s something Robbie’s co-star Simu Liu has also alluded to, as he has praised both the actress and the film, which he said made him wonder how they got Mattel to sign it. He previously said:
“It’s one of the best scripts I’ve ever read. I think it will surprise a lot of people because I think a lot of people get cynical when they see Mattel or Barbie. My first thought after reading the script was how the hell did they get Mattel to sign off on this, because this is not the kind of movie that corporate overlords sign on to. This is the kind of movie I absolutely love. It’s smart, subversive, metaphorical, and makes fun of itself. How did they understand it enough to give it the green light? I think that’s support not only for Greta, but also for Margot Robbie and Tom Ackerley, who produced it.”
While very little is yet known about the film’s plot, there have been rumors that it will see Barbie aware of the “Barbie World” she lives in and wanting out of it, but beyond that, we’re still waiting. on the official synopsis that is published. Currently, Barbie It will be released on July 21, 2023.
