Life is not all billion dollar champagne and roses (made out of gold, of course) for your favorite Hollywood stars.
Talking to The Hollywood Reporter, Margot Robbie shard the unintended consequence of bringing a DC comic sex icon to the big screen:
“You’re about to be in a comic book film; now here’s the worst-case scenario of how big and scary it can get. There’s just all this stuff you learn along the way, like, when you get those death threats, it’s [smart] to have a security team do a background check on whoever sent them to see if there is any past history of violence because you’ll need to know whether you need security to go to certain events. And every time you do a background check, it’s going to cost $2,000, so take that into consideration when you’re getting yourself into this.”
If that sounds like a bit of a warning for those looking to break into acting in the DC Extended Universe, or even Star Wars or Marvel Cinematic Universe for that matter, it is. Robbie continues:
“And it’s like, ‘OK, that’s a different kind of career.’ Because then you need to always do a job that can financially support that lifestyle; you can’t just do indie films for the rest of your life because that film back there changed everything and now you have to be able to afford security. I just wish someone had explained a lot of those things to me early on. I wouldn’t have resented the position I found myself in because I would’ve known what I was getting myself into.”
So, there you go, aspiring Harley Quinns who await the reboot, be careful what you get yourself into! Unlike Robbie, you have been warned!
Do you think it is silly that some movie stars need personal security teams, or are you not surprised in this day and age? Let us know in the comment section below!
