‘Everyone’s Probably Sick of the Sight of Me’

(StraightShooterNews.com) – In a startling decision after starring in several highly successful movies, Margot Robbie, the celebrated actress known for her role in “Barbie,” recently declared her intention to take a break from acting.

In a candid interview with Deadline, Robbie shared her plans to explore opportunities behind the camera after a series of high-profile acting roles.

Robbie jokingly said, “Everyone’s probably sick of the sight of me now,” and suggested it might be good for her to step away from the public eye temporarily. “I should probably disappear from screens for a while,” she added.

The actress discussed her concern about potential audience fatigue, saying, “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 unsure about her next career move, she hopes for a break before taking on another project.

Beyond her acting accomplishments, Robbie reminded Deadline that she is also a producer, a job she highlighted doesn’t often allow for breaks. Her ambitions extend further, as she spoke of her strong desire to venture into directing. “I really do want to direct,” Robbie stated.

She has been nurturing this aspiration for about seven years, seeing it as a privilege that must be earned rather than an entitlement. “I’ve been slowly working towards the feeling that I’ve earned the right to direct, and I feel I’m getting closer to that feeling now,” she elaborated.

Throughout her acting career, Robbie has had the opportunity to work with several “amazing” directors. She shared her joy in observing these directors on set, considering it an invaluable learning experience, saying it is “such a gift to learn from all these directors firsthand.”

Despite her eagerness to direct, Robbie emphasized her patience and desire to continue learning. “I’m not in any rush,” she said, acknowledging her growing desire to direct while also being aware of the need for more experience. “I don’t know how much longer I’ll be able to hold it off,” she admitted.

Marking a high point in Robbie’s career, “Barbie” was a smashing hit, grossing $1.4 billion globally and winning the first Golden Globe for cinematic and box office achievement, as reported by Variety.

Her acting journey includes her breakout role in “The Wolf of Wall Street” and subsequent roles in films like “I, Tonya,” “Birds of Prey,” “Asteroid City,” and “Once Upon A Time In Hollywood.”
