Margot Robbie Is Deliberately Refusing To Watch Star Wars


Star Wars may have reigned as one of the most popular and recognizable brands in Hollywood for over 40 years with a global fanbase that spans generations and brings in billions of dollars in revenue, but doesn’t mean that every single person on the planet needs to be completely enamored with the Disney-owned franchise. During the press rounds for Quentin Tarantino’s Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, Margot Robbie revealed that she is one of those people.

Having recently wrapped Birds of Prey (and the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn) after playing the title character for a second time following David Ayer’s Suicide Squad (where she shared screentime with Batman), Robbie is certainly no stranger to pop culture icons. However, the Academy Award-nominated talent has no intention of ever watching a Star Wars movie, based on how often people ask her why she hasn’t, revealing:

“I’ve never seen any Star Wars. And I kind of don’t watch it now just because it infuriates people so much, like, ‘How? How have you never watched any Star Wars?.’ And I just kinda wanna see how long I can make it now.”

Co-star Brad Pitt also let slip that he hasn’t seen Gone with the Wind, while Leonardo DiCaprio admitted he’s never made the time to watch The Sound of Music. It’s lucky that Tarantino wasn’t sitting in on the interview, with the Once Upon a Time in Hollywood filmmaker having a famously encyclopedic knowledge of even the most obscure movie trivia.

Robbie certainly seems to be sticking to her guns on this one, and fair play to her. The ‘you haven’t seen (insert movie title here)?’ conversation is one that everybody has with their friends and peers on a regular basis, and not everyone feels the need to track down and watch every classic movie ever made.
