I can’t tell you how mortified we were, by the way, said Margot. We look like we’re, like, laughing, having fun, but dying on the inside. I was like ‘This is the most humiliating moment of my life’”. 

Fallon asked if Robbie expected such a backlash around the leaked footage.

“I mean, I knew that we had some exteriors to shoot in L.A. I knew, okay, once you’re doing exteriors, you’re gonna get papped. There’s probably going to be a little crowd of people who are going to take notice because, you know, the fluoro. We stand out a little in those outfits”, she explained. “And so I knew there would be a little bit of attention, and  probably some pictures would get out there, but not like it did.”

“It was like hundreds of people were watching the whole time,” added Margot.

“Barbie” is directed by Greta Gerwig and the plot remains under wraps, although rumors have suggested that the story revolves around several different versions of Barbie and Ken dolls. In addition to the main characters, the cast includes America Ferrera, Simu Liu, Kate McKinnon, Alexandra Shipp, Emma Mackey, Kingsley Ben-Adir, Issa Rae and Michael Cera.

Barbie opens on July 21, 2023 in theaters.
