Margot Robbie: The COVID-19 pandemic has helped me decelerate | Leisure

Margot Robbie says the COVID-19 pandemic taught her the importance of slowing down.

The “Wolf of Wall Street” star had more time than ever to “sit still” at home last year and said she finally realized the importance of taking a break and not “dealing with one.” Move a Million Miles “. Hour “all the time.

She told the August issue of UK Vogue: “I don’t know if it’s because I’m in my thirties or because life has … taken a very strange turn. I’ve been home longer than me because of COVID. “I’ve stayed somewhere I’ve been moving at a million miles an hour for as long as I can remember.

“It can be a little scary at times. But now I finally feel like it’s okay … to sit still? Or even suspend them. It’s a feeling I’ve never had before. “

Despite realizing the importance of breaks, the 30-year-old actress is already looking to her future projects that she hopes will make a movie.

She added, “I want to direct. I would like to try to write. Those would be big challenges that, to be honest, I might not be able to handle. I also think directing is a privilege and not a right. But me have a story that’s been floating around in my head for years. And I have to get the pen down on paper and see if it looks ridiculous or not. “

Margot loves taking on different challenges and says she has a “real dislike” for getting the same type of role more than once.

She said, “I have a real aversion to being pigeon-holed. As soon as someone summarizes me in two words … I want to show them that I am the exact opposite.

“As soon as you succeed in one type of role, people want you to do that. Which I just … find boring. “
