In an interview, the actress was surprised when she talked about which production she has worked on that she likes the most.
Margot Robbie has worked on some of the great films of recent times, such as The Wolf of Wall Street, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, The Suicide Squad, Birds of Prey, I, Tonya, and Bombshell.
However, the Australian actress was surprised by confessing that none of these films is the one she likes the most in her career.
Robbie assured that her favorite film – of the ones she has starred in – is Babylon, a dramatic comedy lasting just over three hours.
Damien Chazelle (Whiplash and La La Land) directs the film in which Margot stars alongside Brad Pitt and Tobey Maguire. “It will be the thing that makes me most proud of my entire career, but also of my entire life,” the actress said about her role in Babylon.
In the film, the 32-year-old interpreter plays Nellie LaRoy, an aspiring actress who finds herself swept up in the trappings of the Hollywood Industry, just in the transition from silent films to talkies in the 1920s.
The Wolf of Wall Street (2013)
Martin Scorsese’s film was Margot Robbie’s great entry into the media front line. Here she plays a key character within the film, Jordan Belfort’s wife, Naomi Lapaglia. The countess represents the most stable side of the life of The Wolf of Wall Street.” Although in the first moment of the film, Naomi represents for Jordan Belfort a new rise on the social scale of his life, and that makes him already not value his first time more, with the birth of their first child, he evolves to the more serious side of the life of Leonardo DiCaprio’s character, who is more concerned with trying to exploit his possibilities in the market and his greatest eccentricities than worrying about lead a normal marriage, since that ordinary life identifies it as a failure.
That is why the role of Margot Robbie is key in the film and she also does it perfectly, with that physical power that the character requires, but at the same time with a great personality that makes her grow on the big screen despite that all the spotlights were on Leonardo DiCaprio. The Australian gave her all during the filming, suggesting, for example, breaking into the famous room scene because that’s what she asked for the character even though Scorsese wanted her to wear a tunic. In addition, she also had a difficult time taking on the character, since her favorite was Olivia Wilde. In the end, Margot Robbie managed to take on the role of her and left one of the best performances of her career.
Once upon a time in Hollywood
The role of Margot Robbie in “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood” was perhaps one of the most tricky challenges the Australians faced. The film, since its promotion, put Margot Robbie in great focus as Sharon Tate, suggesting that she was going to be one of the great characters. Tarantino uses her as a secondary character but at the same time, she is of vital importance in the film. Sharon Tate represents everything good about cinema in “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood.” She is a being of light, innocent, and good, who enjoys going to the cinema to see her own films to experience how the general public enjoys her roles. A perfect contrast for the entire parallel story that unfolds in Tarantino’s ninth film, the one starring Leonardo DiCaprio (with whom he meets again after “The Wolf of Wall Street”).
Rick Dalton is a person who is on the brink of the abyss professionally speaking, and who has to go to Italy to desperately save his career. Quite the opposite of Tate, who, as seen at one of the parties in the film, is the owner of the city and all the ‘showbiz’ of the industry. This contrast is so much that the fact that she is her neighbor, her neighbor, her husband, Roman Polanski, is one of the reasons that leads Rick Dalton to move forward. This is Robbie’s great merit in this film, a faithful representation of what the story asked for, the almost extinguished light of Hollywood that represents everything good in the world.
