- In an interview about her new movie, “Mary, Queen of Scots,” Margot Robbie talked about the most annoying questions she’s asked when she’s talking to the press.
- Robbie said that since she’s been married, she’s been constantly asked about when she and husband Tom Ackerley will have babies.
- Robbie has previously said that she isn’t ready to start a family just yet.
Women in Hollywood are often subjected to questions about babies and parenting far more than men are, even if they don’t have any children of their own, and now, Margot Robbie is taking a stand.
In a new interview with Radio Times, the “I, Tonya” star said she’s been increasingly asked when she’s planning to have a baby since marrying Tom Ackerley in 2016.
“I got married, and the first question in almost every interview is, ‘Babies? When are you having one?'” Robbie told Radio Times. “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.”
Robbie’s “Mary, Queen of Scots” costar, Saoirse Ronan, was also in on the interview and took the opportunity to chime in on the double standard between men and women when it comes to starting a family.
“Only women get asked that when they get married,” Ronan said. “Men don’t.”
As recently as last November,PORTER magazine asked Robbie when she and Ackerley will be ready to start a family, and she was quick to say that won’t be happening anytime soon, especially since they recently adopted a second dog after Ackerley begged her to take in a pit bull puppy they found at an animal shelter.
“If anything, you are now cementing in my mind that we cannot have kids. I can’t cope with two puppies, let alone children!” Robbie told the magazine at the time.
