Margot Robbie has announced a major career decision that left her fans heartbroken.
The 33-year-old Australian actress, who recently portrayed Barbie in Greta Gerwig’s namesake blockbuster, said she’s planning to take a step back and enjoy some time off the screen after her movie’s success.
Speaking of her ambitions in the Deadline Awards Line issue, Robbie suggested everyone must be getting “sick” at the sight of her after she became the face of Barbie.
“I also think everyone’s probably sick of the sight of me for now. I should probably disappear from screens for a while,” the beloved actress said.
“Honestly, if I did another movie too soon, people would say, ‘Her again? We just did a whole summer with her. We’re over it.’”
While Margot admitted she still doesn’t know what her next project will entitle, she said she hoped it was still a “while away.”
Implying she might transition from acting to directing, the blonde beauty added: “I really do want to direct. I’ve felt like I wanted to direct for about the last seven years. But I’ve always seen it as a privilege, not a right.”
This comes shortly after Robbie accepted a Golden Globe on top of the Barbie crew after the movie won the new Cinematic and Box Office Achievement award.
“Thank you. We would like to dedicate this to every single person on the planet who dressed up and went to the greatest place on Earth, the movie theaters. Thank you, and thank you to everybody, all the Barbies and Kens in front of and behind the screen,” she said in her acceptance speech.
“It was the greatest most joyful show of craftsmanship and passion I’ve ever seen. And on behalf of Tom and David and Robbie and I, we want to thank the brave individuals at Warner and Mattel for taking an extraordinary risk in literally inventing numbers to justify green lighting this, and then standing by at every step of the way.
“Thank you to Noah Baumbach for showing his inner Barbie girl. Thank you to Ryan gosling for going full beach. And America Ferrera for showing her soul.”
Concluding her speech, she added: “Last but not least, thank you so much to the Golden Globes for creating an award that celebrates movie fans. This is a movie about Barbie, but it’s also a movie about humans. We made it — it’s about you. We made it for you, and we made it with love. Thank you for loving it back.”
