Margot Robbie Spills Secrets Behind Iconic 'Barbie' Foot Scene

Margot Robbie, known for her remarkable performances, has been making headlines again, but this time it's not for her acting prowess. The highly anticipated Barbie trailer caught the attention of viewers with its intriguing opening shot featuring Barbie's iconic high heel-shaped feet.

Social media was abuzz with speculation about how the scene was filmed and whether Robbie's feet were real or not. In a recent interview with Fandango, Robbie addressed the speculation and revealed the truth behind the captivating shot.

Setting the record straight, Robbie confirmed that it was indeed her own feet featured in the scene. Known for her dedication to authenticity, she expressed her dislike for using body doubles, stating, "I always try and do my own inserts." Robbie emphasized her aversion to watching a movie and knowing that certain body parts were not portrayed by her.

She made it clear to the director that she wanted to handle all aspects of her character's portrayal, asserting, "Please let me do all my own things. I don’t, I don’t like knowing that I didn’t do it."

Behind-the-Scenes: Robbie Reveals Foot Scene Secrets

Robbie went on to provide insights into the filming process of the foot scene, shedding light on how she maintained her balance during the shoot.

Describing the setup, she explained, "It was probably about eight takes. Wasn't that many. I walked up, we had little sticky bits on the floor, double-sided tape for the shoes, so they wouldn’t come off, so I could get my feet out of them.

And I was holding onto, like, a bar. But that’s it. I wasn’t in a harness or anything like that. I just walked up, kind of held onto the bar above [the] camera." In the upcoming Greta Gerwig-directed film, Robbie stars alongside Ryan Gosling, creating a buzz with their on-screen pairing.

The star-studded cast includes talented actors such as Issa Rae, Kate McKinnon, America Ferrera, Rhea Perlman, and Will Ferrell, promising an exciting cinematic experience. Beyond the foot scene, Robbie also shared her enthusiasm for the film's wardrobe, expressing her excitement about the design of the closet and the clothes within it.

Drawing inspiration from the iconic wardrobe in the film Clueless, Robbie and the cast aimed to create something equally stylish and memorable. Barbie, the highly anticipated film, is scheduled for release on July 21. As the countdown begins, audiences eagerly await the chance to witness Margot Robbie's portrayal of the beloved character and the captivating story that unfolds on the big screen.
