Margot Robbie has finally had her say on THAT Vanity Fair article


Remember when Vanity Fair writer, Rich Cohen, recently offered an assessment of Margot Robbie and her native country, and managed to insult millions of people in the process?

Well, while members of the Australian public took to Twitter in their droves to slam both the writer and the article which contained a scathing assessment of the land down under as well as one its most-respected actresses, Margot kept schtum.

And while one might hope she did so in order to take the high road, it was actually because despite the clearly derogatory nature of the piece, Margot was unfazed as she had, in fact, read much worse.

Rich went to great lengths to subtly deride the star, writing "She is 26 and beautiful, not in that otherworldly, catwalk way but in a minor knock-around key, a blue mood, a slow dance."

She is tall but only with the help of certain shoes. She can be sexy and composed even while naked but only in character."

And yet, Margot simply deemed her encounter with Rich as 'odd' and expressed her surprise over the controversy which followed the publication of the piece.

Speaking to The Project, she said: "I remember doing the interview and being like, ‘That was an odd one."

“Then I read it and I was like, ‘Yeah, the tone of this is really weird, I don’t really know what he’s trying to get at or play at," she continued. "But I didn’t expect it’d be like an uproar about it, at all."

"But I’ve read far more offensive, far more sexist, insulting, derogatory, disgusting things on a daily basis," she admitted. "Maybe I’m desensitised to it now."

If that's the case, it's a seriously sad state of affairs.
