Sure, Emma Mackey has seen the tweets about her wanting like Margot Robbie. In actual fact, it is partly why she was forged alongside Robbie in Greta Gerwig’s Barbie.
“It’s simply humorous,” she tells Complete Movie within the latest issue of the magazine, headlined by Halloween Ends (opens in new tab). “And I believe Margot has had the grace and humor to have the ability to play on that, and permit me to be in the identical movie as her – bless her. It’s only a joke in actual life. I’m like, ‘We don’t look something like one another.’ I don’t thoughts it. It’s Margot Robbie. Are you kidding me? She’s the very best. I look as much as her a lot. I don’t thoughts the comparisons. However it will be good to maneuver previous that.”
Regardless of Mackey pondering they give the impression of being nothing like one another, the web’s doubtless not going to maneuver previous the similarities till Barbie finally reaches cinemas. “My dream was to work with Greta,” she says. “When that got here alongside, I used to be like, ‘I must audition for this.’ I used to be actually excited as a result of Greta’s my hero, and I am keen on her. Working along with her has been every thing I might have dreamed of.”
Mackey’s restricted by way of what she will say concerning the movie for now, however her enthusiasm is palpable. “It’s fairly particular,” she beams. “It’s the most effective scripts all of us had learn.” As for the tone of the movie, Mackey says, “It’s very sudden in some ways. I believe persons are going to have an thought of the movie, and I don’t suppose it’s going to be that. It’s going to be a shock. I’m actually excited. And it’s a comedy, thank God. No crying on this movie! Let me inform you that. No crying! It was nice to do pure comedy – an American comedy, as effectively. And I set to work with some heroes.”
Earlier than Mackey seems in Barbie, she’s enjoying Emily Brontë within the upcoming biopic Emily from actor-turned-director Frances O’Connor, which opens October 14.
