Margot Robbie has more going for her than a pretty face. In the cover story for July’s Vogue, the 28-year-old says she can’t stand being called a “bombshell.”
“I hate that word. I hate it — so much,” the Once Upon a Time in Hollywood star said. “I feel like a brat saying that because there are worse things, but I’m not a bombshell. I’m not someone who walks in a room and the record stops and people turn like, ‘Look at that woman.’ That doesn’t happen.”
Continued Robbie, “People who know me, if they had to sum me up in one word I don’t know what that word would be, but I’m certain it would not be bombshell.”
In 2016, Vanity Fair wrote a piece about her that was widely criticized for its ick-factor.
“She is 26 and beautiful, not in that otherworldly, catwalk way but in a minor knock-around key, a blue mood, a slow dance,” author Rich Cohen wrote. “She is blonde but dark at the roots. She is tall but only with the help of certain shoes … She can be sexy and composed even while naked but only in character.”
