Margot Robbie is having a hard time with her acting career, revealing in a recent interview that she feels she’s “peaked” in show business.
The 31-year-old Australian-born actress has already worked alongside Hollywood’s biggest names like Brad Pitt, Leonardo DiCaprio, Jared Leto, Will Smith, Nicole Kidman, Charlize Theron, Christian Bale, Ryan Gosling and Steve Carell, to name a few.
In an interview discussing The Suicide Squad with Fox News, the Oscar-nominated actress said that she “hopes” her career is far from over.
“Honestly, this keeps me up at night, this very question,” she said when asked if she feels she’s hit her peak. “I feel like I have peaked and maybe it’s all downhill from here.”
“Maybe I’m at the top and it can’t get any better,” she continued. “I hope that’s not the case because I still feel like I have a lot to give and there’s still a lot of directors I want to work with. And, you know, I’m just going to keep climbing as long as I can.”
In the film, which releases today (August 5), Robbie reprises her role as Harley Quinn, but with a twist. “Well, in this film, we’re kind of seeing Harley – a more independent Harley, you know,” Robbie explained. “She’s really kind of cut ties with Mr. J. [The Joker], it seems. She doesn’t seem to be thinking about him. Whereas when we first met her, she had this kind of perceived security because she was in a relationship with him, even though he tried to kill her all the time.”
Robbie went on to say that in Birds of Prey, Quinn and Joker “were fresh out of a break up so of course, she was struggling with that. But this time, she’s just not even really thinking about it.”
Robbie added that this time around Quinn is “single, ready to mingle, looking for love.”
“It’s not with Mr. J. for once, which is pretty exciting for me because [Quinn] was literally invented as Mr. J’s girlfriend — like she entered the universe as someone’s girlfriend,” Robbie explained. “So to see her kind of really evolve to a place where he doesn’t even need to be mentioned just shows that, I guess the popularity of the character has grown as she has grown emotionally as well. It’s kind of cool.”
The Suicide Squad premieres in theaters and HBO Max on August 5 at 7 p.m. ET. It will be available to stream for 31 days.
