In recent talks with People magazine, Margot Robbie has spoken candidly about her choice to sign in for the role of one of the protagonists in Bombshell. The central theme of the 2019 movie Bombshell was workplace sexual harassment of women. Margot said she was shocked and disgusted by how little she knew about the issue.

The actor went on to say that the role was simple to depart because it dealt with such a difficult issue and that she agreed to be in the movie to make up for her ignorance about workplace sexual harassment. Her being unaware of such an issue shocked her, and “Bombshell” had shown her that sexual harassment thrives in the murky corners of several professions where it is exploited.

Margot adds, “I realized that I — as a person with an established position in the industry, financially set up and self-sufficient — I didn’t know the definition of sexual harassment, and that’s shocking.”

The 2019 drama film Bombshell, which also stars Nicole Kidman, Margot Robbie, and Charlize Theron, was directed by Jay Roach. Charles Randolph wrote the story for the movie, which is based on the accounts of the Fox News employees who sought to expose CEO Roger Ailes for sexual harassment.
