Fame is a funny thing. Even at the height it seems celebrities are riddled with the notion of “what if”. For Margot Robbie who has seen her next film The Suicide Squad release into cinemas this week, it’s a thought that is keeping her up at night as she worries she’s already reached “her peak”.
Speaking with Fox News she revealed her worries of the future. “Honestly, this keeps me up at night, this very question,” Robbie told the publication. “I feel like I have peaked and maybe it’s all downhill from here. Maybe I’m at the top and it can’t get any better.”
“I hope that’s not the case because I still feel like I have a lot to give and there’s still a lot of directors I want to work with,” she added. “And, you know, I’m just going to keep climbing as long as I can.”
Robbie began her acting career with Australian soap opera Neighbours from 2008 to 2011. She got her ‘big break’ through the 2013 film Wolf of Wall Street where she performed alongside the likes of Leonardo DiCaprio and Jonah Hill. She’s gone on to star in huge box office hits such as The Legend of Tarzan, The Big Short, Once Upon A Time… In Hollywood and Birds of Prey – just to name a few.
Robbie is also preparing to star in Babylon and Barbie.
It’s unlikely that the actress will fall from grace anytime soon. Not only is she a global ambassador for Chanel, director Martin Scorsese believes she has long career ahead of her.
“[Robbie has] a unique audacity that surprises and challenges and just burns like a brand into every character she play,” he wrote in a letter penned to the actress from Time Magazine‘s Top 100 Influential people in 2017. “Margot is stunning in all she is and all she does, and she will astonish us forever.”
