Neighbor And concluded with her latest feature, Damien Chazelle Babylon (for which she is heavily tipped to receive her third Oscar nomination), was her 2017 hit. I, Tonya, In it she played disgraced figure skater Tonya Harding.
The first major production from Robbie’s own Luckychop Productions banner, which he founded in 2014, I’m Tonya It also marked another major milestone, she admitted.
“I’m Tonya “I saw the film for the first time and I was like, ‘Well, I’m a good actor,'” he told the audience.

Once Upon a Time in Hollywood. She said that working with Tarantino had long been “a bucket list thing for me,” although she didn’t know he was preparing a film at the time. In the end, Robbie was the director’s lone choice to play Tate.
After being released Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, the film faced criticism over Robbie’s lack of screen time and lines, saying she “didn’t bother”. Although she admitted that many of the scenes she shot were cut, she “watched it and thought about what we wanted to get.”
Robbie admits to imitating a scene from the film where Tate watches his own film in a theater, going to the same theater where Tate filmed himself, a theater showing Tarantino’s feature.
“I went over there and watched it on a random Tuesday afternoon and sat in the same seat,” he said. “I had pretty much the same experience [as Tate in Once Upon a Time in Hollywood]The person I bought the ticket from was like ‘but you’re in a movie’ and I was like ‘I know’.
Just like in the movie, the ticket seller asked for a picture with Robbie, “I was like, ‘We’re practically doing a movie scene’!”
