The actress explains that she had a bad experience of her sudden celebrity after the success of Martin Scorsese’s film and that she considered ending her career in cinema.
Become one of the most important stars of Hollywood, Margot Robbie confided in an interview with Vanity Fair that she envisioned, after the worldwide success of the wolf of wall street in 2013, to end his career.
The reason: his difficulty adjusting to his sudden fame. “It was excruciating,” recalls the actress, who was 22 at the time and had starred in a handful of projects including the series Pan Am.
“I remember saying to my mother, ‘I don’t think I want to do this.’ And she looked me straight in the eye, and said, ‘Darling, I think it’s a little too late. That’s when I realized that from that moment I could only go for it.”
Target of the paparazzi for years, Margot Robbie has learned to live without being bothered by their presence. But she regrets the absence of international laws protecting stars from the behavior of these sensational photographers: “I know how to get by in an airport, and I know who is trying to piss me off.”
And to add: “If my mother dies in a car accident because they want a picture of me in a grocery store, or they run over my nephew – for what? for a picture? It’s dangerous and surprisingly nothing changes from that point of view.”
“We felt humiliated”
This is not the first time that Margot Robbie confides in her difficulty in working and living with the pressure of the paparazzi. Last September, the actress confided on the set of Tonight Show by Jimmy Fallon felt “humiliated” by the stolen photos taken on the set of the film Barbie.
“I can’t tell you how humiliated we felt,” she said. “We look like we’re having fun and having a good time, but we were dying. We were dying. For me, it was the most humbling moment of my life.”
The actress did not expect the filming to unleash the crowds so much. “I knew there would be paparazzi, and there would be people, because of our somewhat flashy outfits, but not as many. It was crazy! There were a hundred people watching us. “
