Margot Robbie flashes her tummy as she reveals why making Babylon was ‘chaos’

Margot Robbie is in the new massive all-star ensemble cast of Babylon with Brad Pitt.

To celebrate, the 32-year-old beauty showed off her very toned tummy as she posed in black for the December/January cover of Vanity Fair.

In her wide-ranging interview she said she loved playing Nellie LaRoy, who is based on Clara Bow, for the film because she got to be free. ‘I don’t really have a whole lot of modesty left,’ Robbie joked. ‘I don’t feel embarrassed when it’s Nellie doing something. I’d feel embarrassed if it was me, but it’s all her.’

And the blonde also gave an update on her future films, saying Barbie will not be ‘obvious,’ an Ocean’s 11 film is in the works and her starring in a female-led Pirates Of The Caribbean installation will not happen.

And she guessed Nellie had a dark background.

‘Whenever I’m trying to make a character, I have to figure out their childhood. I can justify anything they do later in life if I just figure that out,’ she shared.

Bow had a mentally ill mother and grew up in poverty. So she likely took to the escape of Hollywood.

‘She had probably the most horrific childhood I can imagine for anyone,’ she noted.

‘You can justify anything Nellie does and says in this movie if you imagine that she experienced something like that as a kid.’

And she found joyful working on the movie.

‘What you see onscreen is the chaos of making a movie and how f***ed it is, but also how it’s just the greatest thing ever,’ Robbie said.

Chaos: 'What you see onscreen is the chaos of making a movie and how f***ed it is, but also how it's just the greatest thing ever,' Robbie said.  'And, literally, filming it was the exact same thing.  Sh** was so unhinged and so fun and amazing and just absurd.  It was definitely the best experience of my life'

She also has some very big pink shoes to fill.

As far as Barbie she said, ‘Making an obvious Barbie movie would’ve been extremely easy to do and anything easy to do is probably not worth doing.’

And she really did produce it.

Often actors get producer credit for nothing, but she earned it.

‘Yeah, that pissed me off. It’s so annoying because I have to fight every time,’ she said of making people understand she really produces the films she makes.

Robbie’s also in preproduction on an Ocean’s Eleven prequel.

But she is not doing a Pirates of the Caribbean film, she noted.

‘We had an idea and we were developing it for a while, ages ago, to have more of a female-led—not totally female-led, but just a different kind of story—which we thought would’ve been really cool, but I guess they don’t want to do it,’ she says of Disney.

She made it in Hollywood at age 22.

That is when she lit up Wolf Of Wall Street as Leonardo DiCaprio’s financial shark’s wife. But the fame was awkward.

‘Something was happening in those early stages and it was all pretty awful, and I remember saying to my mom, “I don’t think I want to do this,”‘ she said.

‘And she just looked at me, completely straight-faced, and was like, “Darling, I think it’s too late not to.” That’s when I realized the only way was forward.’

Robbie can take it now. ‘I know how to go through airports, and now I know who’s trying to f**k me over in what ways,’ she says.

And she said fame has highs and lows.

‘The way I try to explain this job—and this world—to people is that the highs are really high, and the lows are really, really low. And I guess if you’re lucky, it all balances out in the middle.’

But she is used to a facing lot at once; She grew up in a big household.

‘I grew up in a very loud, busy house, and so I feel safe and comfortable when there is just chaos around me,’ she offered. ‘I think it’s why I love movie sets.’
