Margot Robbie has said that she actually doesn’t mind the internet’s obsession with her feet, and finds it quite flattering, really.
There doesn’t seem to be anything she can do about it, so she might as well have a giggle at it, I suppose.
Robbie’s feet have been a topic of discussion online for years now, with many noticing them in Quentin Tarantino’s Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, before they were really shoved straight into the limelight by Barbie.
Robbie’s feet are rated on a bizarre website called ‘Wikifeet’, and 6,731 have said that she has ‘beautiful’ feet on there.
However, 97 say she has ‘ugly’ feet, so you can’t please everyone it would seem.
Anyway, addressing the fixation, she told Culture Blend: “The very first time I Googled myself, you know how when you type something into Google and it predicts what the rest of it is going to be?
“I’d started working and I was on some things and I hadn’t Googled myself before, and so I wrote in ‘Margot Robbie’ and before I finished writing ‘Robbie,’ ‘Margot Robbie feet’ came up.”
She continued: “I clicked on it and realized that there were pictures zoomed in on my feet and people were writing about them and someone had made a video compilation of footage of my feet and I was like, ‘oh wow, this is like a thing. I didn’t realize.”
You might think that this sort of realization would creep a lot of people out, and ordinarily you’d be completely right, but apparently Robbie isn’t one of those people.
The actor said that she is ‘really flattered that people are excited about my feet’.
She added: “I think that’s lovely.
“I am [flattered], genuinely. I don’t feel weird about it.
“I am actually like, that’s nice.”
It’s definitely one way of going about it.
There’s not a great deal of point in being creeped out and terrified by it, because no matter what she does, there’ll still be people on that part of the internet.
So, if you want to go and see Margot Robbie – and her feet, if that is your thing – then you can as of this weekend, as Barbie is in cinemas from July 21.
