The Cool Moment Barbie Director Greta Gerwig Knew Leading Lady Margot Robbie Was ‘Magic


Since stepping onto the silver screen in Martin Scorsese’s 2013 The Wolf of Wallstreet, Margot Robbie has taken Hollywood by storm. Though an absolute knockout, the actress has never settled for the pigeon-holding “hot blonde” roles Hollywood was too quick to offer her after her Wallstreet debut. Instead the I, Tonya star has been a no-nonsense taking actress who has painstakingly built her career. Robbie is not afraid to take the reins. From writing a personalized letter to Quentin Tarantino asking for a role to starting LuckyChap Entertainment with three of her closest friends, the actress knows what she wants. And according to director Greta Gerwig, director of the Robbie-produced upcoming Barbie movie, Robbie is ‘magic.’ The director can even pinpoint the moment on set when this revelation occurred to her. 

In a recent Vanity Fair profile of Margot Robbie, Gerwig recounts a moment on the set of Barbie when she wanted to shoot the actress in slow motion while the rest of the cast performed at regular speed. The director says the Suicide Squad actress did some quick calculations and, within moments, nailed precisely what she was looking for from the star. Gerwig said:

Once, I wanted to capture Margot in slow motion but have everything else move fast, so I went up to her and said, ‘Could you move at 48 frames per second, even though we’re shooting in 24 frames per second and everyone else will be moving at regular speed?’ She did some calculation behind her eyes and then fucking did it. She literally moved at a higher frame rate. I don’t know what category that goes into other than magic.
