I admit it, I had only heard of Margot Robbie before seeing I, Tonya. "Yep" I, Tonya was the first time I had even seen Ms. Robbie in a film. She was spectacular as Tonya Harding. I suspect she will take home the Golden Globe this Sunday for Best Actress in a Musical or Comedy.
What's that you say? What about her turn as Harley Quinn in Suicide Squad, you mean you didn't see that. "No" I didn't thank you very much, honestly you would have had to kidnap me, tie me up and prop my eyes open A Clockwork Orange style to get me to watch it, and I would still find a way to resist.
Robbie who appears on the cover of The Hollywood Reporter with Tonya Harding tells them she has one regret about doing that movie:
"There's just all this stuff you learn along the way, like, when you get those death threats, it's [smart] to have a security team do a background check on whoever sent them to see if there is any past history of violence because you'll need to know whether you need security to go to certain events. And every time you do a background check, it's going to cost $2,000, so take that into consideration when you're getting yourself into this."
"And it's like, 'OK, that's a different kind of career.' Because then you need to always do a job that can financially support that lifestyle; you can't just do indie films for the rest of your life because that film back there changed everything and now you have to be able to afford security, I just wish someone had explained a lot of those things to me early on. I wouldn't have resented the position I found myself in because I would've known what I was getting myself into."
See kids being a Movie Star isn't always shits & giggles. Best of luck to you Margot on Sunday, you got this!
