Margot Robbie Reveals She Wrote a Letter to Quentin Tarantino to Be in One of His Films

Margot Robbie is on the cover of Vogue Australia‘s September 2019 issue, out on August 26.

The interview was conducted by Quentin Tarantino.

Here’s what the 29-year-old Once Upon a Time in Hollywood actress had to say…

On the decision, and process, of making the leap to the United States from Australia: “I made the decision and started saving money and learning the American dialect. You’ve met me with my Australian accent now, but my Australian accent as it was then was very, very Australian… I am a Queenslander, and my accent was so Australian that Neighbours hired a dialect coach to make me sound less Australian. So that was all part of the process of moving to America.”

On writing a letter to Quentin Tarantino: “I had wanted to write the letter for years and years and years. Because I’d heard you were going to do 10 movies and I couldn’t bear the thought I would miss the boat and never see what one of your film sets was like: I needed to figure out a way to get on to set…I knew I wasn’t in that position yet and each time something exciting in my career would happen to put me on the map a little more, I thought: ‘Okay, I feel like I’m getting more established and maybe now’s the time.’

On why she finally decided to write the letter: :It wasn’t until we did I, Tonya that I thought: ‘Now I’m happy with my acting. I feel like I’ve reached the stage where this body of work will show people what I can do as an actor. Now I’m ready to chat with Quentin Tarantino and write that letter.’ I remember agonizing over everything – the paper, the pen, how I was going to write it – big, small, spaced out. Then, of course, I thought you might not be able to get the letter anyway, so I should stop freaking out so much, and then I just wrote the goddamn thing and prayed that somehow it would get to you, and it did. A couple of weeks later I remember getting the phone call saying: ‘Quentin got your letter and he’d really like to meet up.’ I didn’t want to get ahead of myself, but then when we sat down – I remember you ordered an iced tea with a sweetener – I felt like it was the most exciting meeting I’ll ever take in my life.”
