Margot Robbie: She never played with a "Barbie"

At today's global film launch of the "Barbie" film, leading actress Margot Robbie (33) surprises with a confession from her childhood in Australia: "I used to not be a Barbie girl at all." Although her sisters and cousins ​​played with what is probably the most famous doll in the world, she hardly ever did. But then with what?

"I was more the kid who likes to roll in the mud and get dirty," confesses the Australian in the current issue of People magazine. If she then resorted to her cousin's "Barbies", she opted for models of the cult doll that had already been worn out from playing - "weird Barbies", as Robbie calls them.

Robbie, who is also the producer of the strip, describes the "Barbie" film as a heart project. Ridiculed in advance as trash by some critics, the film adaptation of the "Barbie" story caused a worldwide sensation even before it was released in cinemas and caused a real re-hype about the cult doll. The global wave of enthusiasm is not only triggered by the participation of the two superstars Margot Robbie and Ryan Gosling (42), who bring Barbie and Ken to life in the film.

Far less superficially than expected, the strip depicts the world in which the popular doll couple lives as an illusory world in which beauty is at stake at all costs. Those who do not conform to the prevailing ideal of beauty are expelled from the artificial plastic world - like "Barbie" at the beginning of the film. Only in the real world does "Barbie" learn to accept herself with all her weaknesses and mistakes - a strong message behind the suspected plastic facade.
