Margot Robbie is so done with people asking her if she’ll have kids

Margot Robbie has broken her silence on the reoccurrig societal expectation that so many women face on a daily basis – presuming that once they are married, having a baby will naturally follow.

The wedding band is barely on women's fingers (if even) and people think it's acceptable to pry into their private live and fertility.

The 28-year-old addressed the problem when she was speaking to Radio Times, and admitted that she was fed up with the presumptions.

She drew parallels with her character Queen Elizabeth I in her new movie, Mary Queen of Scots , when she said, “It made me really angry; how dare some old guy to dictate what I can and can’t do when it comes to motherhood or my own body?''

She added, ''Unfortunately, it’s a conversation we’re still having.”

Margot wed filmmaker Tom Ackerley in 2016, and since then, the question of motherhood has been on many interviewers lips.

She said, ''I’m so angry that there’s this social contract. You’re married, now have a baby. Don’t presume. I’ll do what I’m going to do.“

She also went on to express her frustration at the lack of strong female roles, which resulted in her setting up her own production company, LuckyChap Entertainment. 

She said, ''I wasn't seeing many scripts where I wanted to play the female role – I always wanted to play the male role.''

She continued, ''The female roles are always a catalyst for the male story, and that’s unsatisfying. So I was like ‘Well, we’ll start making our own films because we can’t just sit around forever and wait for them to come along’.”

Hear, hear Margot – we like what she's saying.
