Those scenes, where everything’s exploding around you, and you make it just in time, those massive epic war hero runs? Those movie moments? Girls never get those. Girls never get those.

Margot Robbie is reprising her role as everyone’s favorite supervillain Harley Quinn, in the upcoming The Suicide Squad movie, set to be released on July 28th. Two-time Oscar nominee will also star in in Damien Chazelle’s Babylon, as well as in the upcoming Barbie movie, written and directed by Greta Gerwig.
I want to direct, I’d like to try writing. Those would be huge challenges, which to be honest, I might not pull off. I also think directing is a privilege and not a right.
