Actor Margot Robbie, who is currently working in Greta Gerwig's Barbie, has revealed that she did not know the definition for sexual harassment in workplace before she worked in the 2019 film Bombshell.

Bombshell was a film based on accounts of women at Fox News who exposed CEO Roger Ailes for sexual harassment. The actor played the role of Kayla Pospisil, a fictional character in the film.

Speaking at the BAFTA Life in Pictures, Margot was quoted as saying by Variety, "The second I could stop being Kayla, I did. It was definitely something I wanted to tap out of at the end. I realised 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."

Margot revealed that it "horrified her" about her knowledge and how the film taught her the presence of sexual harassment and "flourishing in gray areas". "Roger Ailes or Harvey Weinstein, they take advantage of the area. The situation isn’t black and white," she added.

On the work front, Margot has Babylon co-starring Brad Pitt. The film will release for Christmas and is a period film set against the backdrop of Hollywood’s time of transition from silent films to talkies. Margot essays an upcoming young actor. The actor also has Barbie, a film on Mattel's iconic fashion doll. The film will have Ryan Gosling as Ken.
