"Barbie" Actress Margot Robbie Reveals Her Diet For The Movie

As the release of the new Barbie movie starring Margot Robbie and Ryan Gosling, directed by Greta Gerwig sets the world on fire, the actors are in the spotlight and nobody more so than the leading lady herself

Margot Robbie is well-known in Hollywood for her diverse acting skills playing everything from the hell-raising Harley Quinn in Suicide Squad to infamous ice-skating legend, Tonya Harding in I, Tonya. According to Women’s Health, Robbie maintains a rigorous workout regime and during the filming of I, Tonya she would so up to 100 sit-ups every day. Both these roles were physically demanding and naturally, her latest role as the iconic doll required a certain physique to represent the character

The actress hails from Dalby, west of the Gold Coast in Queensland Australia and grew up near a beach and swimming on a regular basis. She has considered to maintain and active lifestyle even when not in training for a movie and has also found a passion for rollerblading – something that Barbie is also seen to love in the movie – and she has found that to be an excellent method for a cardio workout

She’s also careful about what she eats though not restrictive and she starts her days with porridge and an immunity boosting-smoothie later in the morning. She’s also careful about what she eats though not restrictive. As per Emirates Woman, Robbie likes to avoid fast food, sugary drinks, saturated fats and chocolates while prepping for a role but she’ll always allow herself a glass of wine or two as a treat. "I'm not good at moderation", Robbie said in the interview. "I get miserable if I don't eat. I can't just have a salad every day and half a glass of wine every second day. I can't do it." Robbie has also admitted her love for beers, fries, chocolate, waffles and burgers, and it’s only when she absolutely has to, that she gives up her favourite foods. 

The version of Barbie portrayed in Gerwig’s interpretation of the vintage doll has been lauded for its progressive attitude and feminist depiction of a character that had over years become the scapegoat for unrealistic body standards for women. And it seems like actress Margot Robbie is just as relatable as the new portrayal of her character.
