“I think everyone is tired of seeing me.” Margot Robbie posed for the cover of Deadline and talked about her career break after the release of "Barbie"

Margot Robbie is the cover heroine of the new issue of Deadline magazine. The actress took part in a shoot in the style of "Barbie" and talked about her career as a producer, a break in her acting career and her desire to become a director.

This year, the production company of Margot Robbie and her husband Tom Ackerley, LuckyChap, turns 10 years old. During this time, the company produced several successful films, including "I, Tonya", "Promising Young Woman", "Barbie", "Saltburn" and others.

Margot said that the desire to produce films came to her during filming. “I understood perfectly well that I was fascinated by the whole mechanism of the film set. I didn’t know how my career would develop, but it turned out to be logical for me that it would develop into producing.”

Despite her love for producing, Margot admits that it is hard work, it is not for everyone, and film production, in addition to the risk, costs a lot of money. The actress even discouraged some friends from getting involved in this industry for the sake of profit, not art. "Once you become a producer, you have no leverage, you have no power to negotiate. So yes, you may have creative control, but you'll get paid like crap, so be careful what you wish for. Besides, it’s such a big amount of work that sometimes it’s better to just star in a movie.”

"Besides, making a film is very expensive. Sometimes you read the script and think: “Why are they filming this?” There's nothing new or interesting here. Nothing beats something that's already been done a million times. Why would anyone spend millions of dollars—sometimes tens or hundreds of millions of dollars—on something we've already seen? I think it's just crazy. It's a terrible waste of money and a terrible waste of people's time. A movie takes years to make and so much money goes into it that unless you're really trying to do something, I don't know why you even bother."

Margot admitted that when she read the script for the film “Barbie,” she considered actress Gal Gadot for the role of the main character. It was the director of the film, Greta Gerwig, who insisted that Robbie consider her candidacy. The Wolf of Wall Street star told why she decided to take on this film in the first place.

"I really missed stupid comedy. Silly, smart comedy. I always thought of an "Austin Powers" tone, and when I read the script, that was the tone that came across. Lots of physical comedy, lots of stupid but clever jokes, some very referential stuff. Such comedies practically disappeared from mainstream cinema for several years.”

After filming “Barbie,” which ended in the fall of 2022, Margot took the biggest break in her acting career in the last ten years. She believes that she should not appear on screens yet, since many viewers are “tired” of from her character.

"I think everyone is tired of seeing me. I should probably disappear from screens for a while. Honestly, if I did another movie too soon, people would be like, “Her again?” We just spent the whole summer with her. We're done with her." I don’t know what I’ll do next, but I hope it won’t be soon.”

Robbie plans to release several films as a producer, including a prequel to Ocean's Eleven. "We have a movie with Olivia Wilde ["Naughty"] that's moving pretty quickly, so that might be the next thing we do. I'm not acting in it, I'm only producing. A couple of TV movies are also due out this year. As an actress, I like to act in films that I am not a producer on, so I am looking at a few films, but nothing concrete yet.”

Margot is also thinking about a career as a director. So it is quite possible that the actress’s debut in this role is not far off. "I would really like to become a director. I'm taking my time because I feel like there will never be enough time to learn everything I want to learn before I do it, but I definitely have that itch and it's getting too strong. I don’t know how much longer I can hold back.”
