Did Margot Robbie Really Have a Secret Letterboxd Account? An Investigation

Margot Robbie has never had a big presence on social media, posting on Instagram only sparingly before deactivating her account last year. Imagine her fans’ delight, then, when they managed to track down what they believed to be the 31-year-old actor and producer on Letterboxd, a site where users connect over their taste in cinema and rate and discuss films. Her alleged account didn’t share insight into what Robbie’s been streaming, which appeared to include M*A*S*H, Sweeney Todd, and The Italian Job. It also seemed to reveal more about two of Robbie’s most highly anticipated (and mysterious) projects, Greta Gerwig’s Barbie and Damien Chazelle’s Babylon.

7 Must-Watch Margot Robbie Performances From ‘I, Tonya’ to ‘Birds of Prey’

It’s rare that an actor can make an audience forget that what they’re watching is, in fact, a performance. Two-time Academy Award-nominated actress Margot Robbie possesses a striking ability to immerse herself entirely into each of her characters. From the vehement Naomi Lapaglia in The Wolf of Wall Street to the insecure Queen Elizabeth I in Mary, Queen of Scots, Robbie’s characters are often flawed and perplexing people. However, she finds the humanity in each one, which is what makes all of her films so deeply resonant with audiences.

Pirates Of The Caribbean 6 May Set Sail With Margot Robbie In The Lead

(It was only saved by a strong turnout at the global box office.) The obvious answer would be "Stop making 'Pirates of the Caribbean' movies and do something original," but this is Disney we're talking about. So long as there's even a slim shot at finding box office treasure, the studio won't be giving up on this swashbuckling property anytime soon.
