Margot Robbie is in Babylon’s new massive all-star ensemble cast with Brad Pitt.
And to celebrate, the 32-year-old beauty showed off her very toned stomach as she posed in black for the December/January cover of Vanity Fair.
In her extended interview, she said she loved playing Nellie LaRoy, who is based on Clara Bow, for the film because she was allowed to be free. “I don’t really have that much humility anymore,” Robbie joked. “I’m not ashamed when Nellie does something. I’d be ashamed if it were me, but she’s it all.’

And she suspected that Nellie had a dark background.
“When I’m trying to create a character, I have to find out their childhood. I can justify anything they do later in life if I only find out,” she shared.
Bow had a mentally ill mother and grew up in poverty. So she probably went to the Hollywood breakout.
“She probably had the most horrific childhood I can imagine for anyone,” she noted.
“You can justify everything Nellie does and says in this film if you imagine she went through something like this as a child.”
And she enjoyed working on the film.
“What you see on screen is the chaos of making a movie and how f***ed it is, but also how it’s just the best thing ever,” Robbie said.

She also has a pair of really big pink shoes to fill.
As for Barbie, she said, “Making an obvious Barbie movie would have been really easy and anything that’s easy to do is probably not worth doing.”
And she actually produced it.
Often actors get credit from the producer for nothing, but she deserved it.
“Yeah, that pissed me off. It’s so annoying because I have to fight every time,” she said to make people understand that she really produces the films she makes.
Robbie is also in pre-production on an Ocean’s Eleven prequel.
But she’s not doing a Pirates of the Caribbean movie, she noted.
“We had an idea and we developed it a while, ages ago, to be more female-led — not entirely female-led, but just a different kind of story — which we thought would have been really cool, but I think they don’t want it,” she says of Disney.
She made it in Hollywood at the age of 22.
That’s when she scammed Wolf Of Wall Street as the wife of Leonardo DiCaprio’s financial shark. But the fame was uncomfortable.
Ready to roll: What Barbie said, she said, ‘It would have been really easy to make an obvious Barbie movie,’ says Robbie, ‘and anything easy to do probably isn’t the worth doing.’ And she actually produced it
“Something happened in those early stages and it was all pretty horrible, and I remember saying to my mom, ‘I don’t think I want to do this,'” she said.
“And she just looked straight at me and said, ‘Honey, I think it’s too late not to do it.’ Then I realized the only way was forward.’
Robbie can handle it now. “I know how to get through airports, and now I know who is trying to cheat me in what ways,” she says.
And she said fame has highs and lows.
“The way I try to explain this job – and this world – to people is that the highs are really high and the lows are really, really low. And I think if you’re lucky, it’s all balanced in the middle.’
But she is immediately used to an opposing party; She grew up in a large household.
“I grew up in a very noisy, busy house, so I feel safe and comfortable when there’s only chaos around me,” she offered. “I think that’s why I love movie sets.”
