Going for the gold!! Instead of waiting for her next big role, the actress Margot Robbie went on to produce I, Tonya and spoke exclusively told media about the experience at the movie’s New York premiere at Village East Cinema on Wednesday, November 28.
Not to say that I wasn’t happy with the roles that I was receiving — definitely doing Wolf of Wall Street opened up a ton of opportunities that weren’t already present — but I guess I also didn’t want to wait around for the amazing roles to come by every couple of years. I wanted to find them a little bit quicker and that meant that I had to find them myself or develop them.
I work with an amazing group of people, I love everyone at our company and it’s not just about finding roles for me to do, it’s about finding roles for actresses in general and actors and first and second time directors, female directors, writers.
The 27-year-old Suicide Squad star, who learned to figure skate to play the role of the disgraced Olympian, told she is not a professional skater yet.

When asked if she takes her skating talents to Disney On Ice, Margot responded:
I don’t know if I could do that! But maybe I could be a good back-up, stand-in for them perhaps, I’m not quite at professional level yet.
Date night? Oh God this is such a nerdy answer. We watch movies! We’re movie lovers, we’re cinephiles. We just want to watch movies all the time!
