Margot Robbie Says She Got Death Threats After ‘Suicide Squad’
In an interview with Hollywood Reporter, Margot Robbie discusses her new movie and how she shot to international fame with Suicide Squad and how that turned into a living nightmare because neckbeards who love comic book movies are mostly unhinged psychos. Good times.
She’s given a lot of thought to the pitfalls of fame in the past few years and wonders aloud whether perhaps someone at the talent agencies or elsewhere in the process should tell an actor before he or she signs on to a project like Suicide Squad, “You’re about to be in a comic book film; now here’s the worst-case scenario of how big and scary it can get.” Robbie, who has had to contend with stalkers and death threats, is now forced to spend a great deal of time and resources on personal security. “There’s just all this stuff you learn along the way, like, when you get those death threats, it’s [smart] to have a security team do a background check on whoever sent them to see if there is any past history of violence because you’ll need to know whether you need security to go to certain events,” she explains. “And every time you do a background check, it’s going to cost $2,000, so take that into consideration when you’re getting yourself into this.”
Anybody else ready for the nukes to fly? I’m ready. If somebody could get on that pretty soon, that’d be cool. Thanks.
