Hollywood is about to lose another pretty face. Margot Robbie has decided to go after a possible career as a director. More empowerment for her, less eye candy for the rest of us. No longer should the person behind the camera be the stereotypical privileged male waving his wang around, women want the opportunity to oppress others from positions of power as well. Pretty soon the average blockbuster hit will look more like three hour soap opera dramas and Lifetime specials. The only time I want to see Margot shift positions is if I’m watching her leaked sex tape. Anything else would be deeply upsetting.
“I still love acting,” she explained. “But I’ve spent the last 10 years on a film set, and I realized that if I am pouring my heart and soul into a film, I want to be one of those voices in the conversation making decisions.”
I still have hope that her dream of becoming a director is inspired by undiagnosed attention deficit disorder. She also stated in her ELLE interview that she wanted to become a fire-twirler after backpacking in the Philippines. And everyone knows that dream jobs don’t always pay the bills. Just like the basketball loving child who wanted to be apart of the NBA and peaked as a towel boy instead of a player. Short on rent and short on dreams. Fantasizing about a certain career doesn’t equate to you being the most qualified for the job. Robbie will always look better in front of a camera than behind one.
