Margot Robbie has revealed she signed up for Peter Rabbit in the hopes that she would get a ‘free ticket home’.

But despite several live-action scenes being filmed in Sydney, the Oscar-nominated actress was told she’d be doing her parts in Los Angeles.

She told The Daily Telegraph on Saturday: ‘I’ve wanted to shoot something in Australia for so long, so I’m like, sign me up!’

‘Free ticket home, time with my family and then they were like, “Um, you’re actually going to do your parts in LA!” And I was like, No!’

Despite filming her scenes in the US, Margot was still pleased with how Peter Rabbit – which is based on the Beatrix Potter books – had a very Australian feel.

‘There is a lot of Australian pride connected with this film. Parts of it were shot in Australia (and) there are a lot of Australian cast members,’ she explained.

For Margot Robbie and Allison Janney, personal versions of the truth play out in ‘I, Tonya’ – LA Times

“I, Tonya,” the Craig Gillespie-directed biopic about Tonya Harding, the figure skater banned from competition for life for her connection to a 1994 attack on fellow skater Nancy Kerrigan, has brought its stars — Margot Robbie, who plays an unsinkable Harding, and Allison Janney, as her sharp-tongued mother, LaVona — Oscar nominations, critical acclaim and, not surprisingly, a newfound love for the Winter Olympics. “We’re watching men’s half-pipe,” reports Robbie, jet-lagged and talking via speakerphone while sitting alongside Janney in a London hotel room. “We’re just mesmerized.”
The pair were in town to attend the BAFTAs, where they were both nominees. Before heading off to a party, they took time out to talk about the film’s more nuanced examination of Harding’s life (domestic violence, the skating world’s contempt for her working-class roots), Janney’s annoying parakeet costar and the reaction Robbie, an “I, Tonya” producer, had during her initial reading of Steven Rogers’ script.

“It’s so easy to dismiss these characters and their feelings. But by the end of it, I was devastated, angry and frustrated for them. I’d laugh out loud at something, then immediately feel disgusted with myself that I found it funny,” says Robbie. “To be able to let those feelings creep up on you, instead of being told to feel them? That’s a real art form.”

Parsing what’s true or false is a daily struggle of late. How much do you believe your characters?

Robbie: I knew we’d never know exactly how it went down. Twenty years later, everyone had completely different recollections of the same thing. Truth and reality had parted ways. My character’s truth was not necessarily the reality of the situation. But her version of the truth was far more interesting to me than the facts.
Janney: What made it so fun was the juxtaposition of everyone’s truth. You see LaVona throw a knife at her daughter, then cut to me saying, “What family doesn’t have their ups and downs?” Her truth was that she was a good mother, she gave her daughter an opportunity, and her daughter screwed it up by picking the [wrong] man. Where the reality is? I don’t know.

Margot Robbie on why women should stop apologising – Stylist

Nominated for an Oscar for her latest role as the controversial ice skater Tonya Harding, Margot Robbie talks to Stylist about refusing to toe the line.

In a gourmet bakery on LA’s La Brea Avenue, over a bowl of chia seeds and berries, Margot Robbie and I are comparing the size of our respective canines’ poo. (Hers is a petite rescue mutt named Boo Radley, mine a chihuahua mix.) “They are so small. Like, this big,” she says pointing to a raspberry, her grin nearing the width of the peak of her black nautical cap. “It’s so good.”

Robbie is the kind of Best Actress Academy Award nominee who can talk unflinchingly about dog poo despite the fact that, after her lead turn in black comedy I, Tonya, she is being considered among the best actors of her generation. She’s also president of her own production company, LuckyChap Entertainment (which she runs with four of her seven former south London flatmates, including her husband, Tom Ackerley). Sunny, quick-witted and unshowy, Robbie is, to coin a breakfast-related metaphor, a good egg.

A good egg but a badass: the 27-year-old thumped Leonardo DiCaprio in the face without warning in her audition for Martin Scorsese’s The Wolf of Wall Street, her breakthrough role which came only a year after graduating from Neighbours in 2011. She does many of her own stunts, gave a speech at 2017’s Women in Hollywood Awards calling out the film industry’s propensity to see women “in the simplest terms and with the most convenient definitions”, and can trapeze and tattoo: she famously inked emojis on her 2016 Suicide Squad co-star Cara Delevingne’s toes. In short, Robbie seems to approach life as if she is leaping out of a plane to land feet-first on a bullseye. (She also skydives.)

Margot Robbie Reveals Her Favorite ‘I, Tonya’ Scene and a “Surreal” Awards-Season Interaction – The Hollywood Reporter

The Oscar-nominated actress also opens up about how she got into the mind-set of Tonya Harding.

Robbie already was becoming known — for her breakout role in The Wolf of Wall Street and for playing the demented villain Harley Quinn in Suicide Squad — but the Australian actress, 27, proved her range by portraying infamous figure skater Tonya Harding in I, Tonya. Robbie earned her first Oscar nomination for playing the ice champ from ages 15 through 40 in the dark comedy, which attempts to explain how an athlete with such raw talent could land at the center of the sport’s biggest scandal. Robbie spoke to THR about her favorite memories from the shoot and the awards-season circuit.

What was it like to hear you’d been nominated?

I was at home in Australia for the I, Tonya premiere, and it was 1 in the morning when the nominations started coming through. We were already out at the after-party, so I was literally with all my friends and my family, and we were already having some champagne, and then we obviously kept celebrating. It was perfect.

Have you had any unexpected interactions during awards season?

You start meeting people that you just, like, you had no idea they even knew who you were. I had quite a surreal moment where I watched Thelma & Louise the night before the SAG Awards, and then the first two people I ran into were Geena Davis and Susan Sarandon. That was so bizarre.

James Corden, Margot Robbie, and More on the Bunny Trail with Peter Rabbit – Interview

It is almost two months until Easter but it isn’t too early for kids of all ages to hop down the bunny trail starting Friday, Feb. 9 when Columbia Pictures releases the animated/live action Peter Rabbit, featuring a brand-new adventure for the classic characters created by Beatrix Potter.

The new incarnation stays true to the source material in that Peter’s (voiced by James Corden) desire to dine on the delights of Mr. McGregor’s (Domhnall Gleeson) garden is still in full force; but where it takes the rascally, jacket-wearing rabbit, his likewise clothed sisters — Flopsy (Margot Robbie), Mopsy (Elizabeth Debicki), and Cotton-tail (Daisy Ridley) and cousin Benjamin (Colin Moody) — after that is all new.
