Celebrity interview: Hollywood star Margot Robbie living the dream


CELEBRITY INTERVIEW How do you get your head around it?
You know. I’m hoping I don’t wake up from this, I still think it’s a dream.

You’re now forever going to be known as Oscar nominee, Margot Robbie – like over the titles!
Ahhh, that’s so weird [laughs]. It’s so weird.

And you’re going up against Meryl Streep!
That’s even weirder. It’s so wrong to mention our names together, c’mon it’s Meryl Streep. I don’t know what I’m doing there. I spoke to Saoirse and she was speaking about how great it was to have you in the mix because you’re so close.

Yeah, she is one of my best friends so it’s like, I know we’re going to have such a fun time just being in that experience.

Are you rooting for her in a way?
Of course, I’m rooting for her. She’s amazing.

Over everyone else?
I’m rooting for all of them. I root for every woman in this industry. I’m all about women.

But you really secretly want to win though? C’mon, be honest.
Look, I’m nominated, which is beyond weird to say that in itself. I’ve already won in my book. Being nominated, getting the film nominated is like winning for me, it means more people go to see it, it keeps the conversation going.

So, if you achieve nothing else in your career after this nomination…
It’s like, this cannot get any better. It feels amazing.
