Margot Robbie is finally responding to headlines that suggested she was recently photographed crying outside of model Cara Delevingne’s home in Los Angeles — snaps that two-time Oscar nom Robbie, 32, learned about from her mom.
Asked whether both she and the model were OK, 32-year-old Robbie assured her mother “yes and yes,” she told Vanity Fair in a new interview promoting her starring roles in Damien Chazelle’s “Babylon” and Greta Gerwig’s “Barbie.”
“‘And second of all, I’m not at Cara’s house — I’m outside an Airbnb that I was renting for five days! And I’m not crying!’” she recalled explaining. “I had something in my eye. I’m trying to grab my face mask, trying to hold a coffee cup, and I couldn’t get a hair outta my eye.”
Delevingne, 30, acted alongside Robbie in “Suicide Squad.” In recent months, she’s been the subject of headlines speculating about unusual behavior like holding the train of Megan Thee Stallion’s dress at the Billboard Music Awards and some off-camera poses.
Noting she’d like “to correct” all the false reports about her, Robbie said: “You just can’t. You have to, I don’t know, look the other way.”
While Robbie said she doesn’t “resent” the media for using “sound bites,” she equated press junkets to “tap dancing through a minefield. ... You can say it right a thousand times, but you say it wrong once, you’re f—ked.”
