Margot Robbie recently discussed the hidden details in the upcoming movie, Barbie, in an interview with Vogue Australia. According to her, fans can discover these concealed elements in the background of the film, which has received an impressive 90 percent score on Rotten Tomatoes.
The 33-year-old actress mentioned that every document or piece of paper in the Pink House, their Barbieland version of the White House, features cursive word salad. Even the mail delivered by Mail Woman Barbie is beautifully written scribble, adding a clever and visually appealing touch to the movie, along with a touch of nostalgia from childhood.
Margot recalled her own childhood memories, sharing how her mother once said she used to sit and write pages of beautiful scribble as a kid. This creative aspect seems to have resonated with her, making the movie’s details even more meaningful.
Director Greta Gerwig also contributed to the movie’s charm by incorporating “Barbie books” that either consist of pieces of plastic or are non-opening, adding a unique and playful touch to the storytelling.
For Margot, bringing a beloved children’s toy to life on the big screen was both daunting and exciting. She acknowledged that audiences would already have strong feelings about the protagonist, Barbie, which added to the challenge of doing justice to the character.
In the end, Margot expressed her belief that in the hands of others, a Barbie movie might have remained superficial, but the hidden details, clever design choices, and nostalgic elements aimed to make this adaptation a delightful and thoughtful experience for viewers.
