Talking about Barbie, Margot Robbie told British Vogue, "People generally hear ‘Barbie’ and think, ‘I know what that movie is going to be,’ and then they hear that Greta Gerwig is writing and directing it, and they’re like, ’Oh, well, maybe I don’t…’” She also said that the movie “comes with a lot of baggage and a lot of nostalgic connections” attached to the Doll's legacy.
