Since Robbie was announced to be playing the famous fashion toy "Barbie," here's what she said about portraying the character.

"I think it's a great opportunity to put some positivity out in the world and a chance to be aspirational for younger kids," Robbie told Variety in 2019.

During an interview with Vogue, Robbie discusses that it was a challenging role but was excited to work with Gerwig.

"Right, it comes with a lot of baggage. And a lot of nostalgic connections. But with that come a lot of exciting ways to attack it. People generally hear 'Barbie' and think, 'I know what that movie is going to be,' and then they hear that Greta Gerwig is writing and directing it, and they're like, 'Oh, well, maybe I don't,'" she concluded.

In 2020, Robbie spoke with The Hollywood Reporter about her character and what people can expect.

"We like the things that feel a little left of center. Something like Barbie where the IP, the name itself, people immediately have an idea of, 'Oh, Margot is playing Barbie, I know what that is,' but our goal is to be like, 'Whatever you're thinking, we're going to give you something totally different — the thing you didn't know you wanted,'" she said.
