In an interview with 'The Project', Robbie revealed that she left the interview feeling confused. “I remember thinking, ‘That was a really odd interview, I don't know how that's going to come out,’” she recounted to The Project co-host, Carrie Bickmore. She continued on to say: “And then when I read it I was like, ‘Yeah, the tone of this is really weird.’ Like, I don't really know what he's trying to get at.”

Robbie explained that she was also in total shock to the critical backlash that grew in response to the 'sexist' profile. “But I didn't expect there to be like an uproar about it at all. But I've read like far more offensive, far more sexist, insulting, derogatory, disgusting things on a daily basis. I don't know, maybe I'm like desensitized to it,” said the Australian actress.

Robbie attributed her massive support to Aussie pride, saying, “I had like a bit of Aussie pride where I was like, ‘Don't mess with the Aussies! Look what happens when you mess with Australia!’”


Margot Robbie is a huge fan of New York Rangers, a hockey team, and is often found passionately supporting their games. Blue, red and white funnily enough are her favourite colours.
