Earlier this month, Vanity Fair published what we thought was going to be a regular interview with Aussie Margot Robbie, but when the story hit the web – it caused total outrage!

Margot’s fans took to Twitter to slam writer Rich Cohen for his awful descriptions of her, and his inaccurate take on Australia, which he calls “a throwback, which is why you go there for throwback people.”) Um WTF mate.

Now, in an interview with The Project, Margot reveals what she felt about the sexist and patronising story, agreeing that the whole thing was ‘really weird.’

“I remember thinking, ‘That was a really odd interview. I don’t know how that’s going to come out,'” she says.

“And then when I read it I was like, yeah, the tone of this is really weird. I don’t really know what he’s trying to get at or play at.”

She also says she was surprised by the public’s response to the article, admitting that she “didn’t expect there was going to be an uproar about it at all.”

“I’ve read far more offensive, far more sexist, insulting, derogatory, disgusting things on a daily basis,” she added. “I don’t know, maybe I’m desensitized to it now.”

Margot was proud to have her fellow Aussies support though.  “I had like this bit of Aussie pride, where I was like, ‘Don’t mess with the Aussies.’”

“Don’t you mess with the Aussies. Look at what happens when you mess with Australia,” she gushed.

Damn straight! We Aussies are a force to be reckoned with!
