Fame is a tricky beast and sometimes being on the receiving end of having to navigate it can be panic-inducing. Actress Margot Robbie knows this first hand and opens up about having meltdowns along this bizarre fame journey that she is on. In addition to being one of the hottest, sought-after actresses and juggling a new marriage, Robbie also runs a production company.
So having a business and being a high profile actress can be incredibly stressful and time-consuming. Sometimes the demands and responsibilities of her two jobs can really get to her and she has a hard time dealing with the realities of it.
“You miss out on a lot of things like you rarely go on holidays, you miss everyone’s weddings, everyone’s birthdays. I haven’t been home once this year, I haven’t seen my best friends, my nephew,” explains the blonde beauty.
It’s a large price to pay to feel like she is doing important and meaningful work. So she makes the sacrifices but it doesn’t mean that those realities don’t get to her. She puts it into perspective the best she can and realizes that there is something incredibly imperative and rewarding about the work she does both on and off of the screen.
It’s been ten years since her breakout role in the series Neighbours, which really put her on the map. Since then, she’s been seen in films such as The Wolf Of Wall Street, Focus, Suicide Squad and her most recent, I, Tonya, where she plays the infamous figure skater Tonya Harding.
She’s shared space and the big screen with heavyweight film actors such as Will Smith, Leonardo Dicaprio, and Alison Janney, picking up little pearls of wisdom along the way.
Robbie also recently got married to her longtime best friend and business partner Tom Ackerley. She says that not much as changed between them since they’ve been best friends and lived together so long, except the fact that she gets to wear her wedding ring on the weekends!
The price of fame is sometimes steep but for many, it’s more than worth it.
