Margot Robbie called her Barbie director, Greta Gerwig, a game-changer in a recent panel conversation with Deadline.
Greta Gerwig has received some game-changing praise from Margot Robbie for her work on Barbie.
“Really changed the game”
During a panel with Deadline, Robbie talked about Gerwig and Barbie.
“I definitely didn’t want to try to make a Puff Peace Barbie. “I wanted us to celebrate the wonderful things as much as we celebrate the scary things,” Robbie said. “That’s why I went after Greta, because I thought, ‘She would do this.'”
Gerwig ultimately directed the film, which is set to be one of the biggest success stories of 2023. Robbie didn’t want her to be in the spotlight and took time to praise her.
“I would immediately step in and say what Greta is very polite about saying,” she said. “She has really changed the game. From now on, it’s different because of what he has done. It is huge. And someone’s going to come up with another original idea that requires a bigger budget, and has a female lead, and they’re going to point to Barbie and say, ‘But it made money.’ Everyone’s going to go, ‘Oh, okay we have to greenlight it.’ And it’s amazing.”
Before Barbie, Greta Gerwig was known for her roles in Frances Ha, To Rome with Love, and Isle of Dogs. His solo directorial debut came in 2017 with Lady Bird. This film catapulted him to stardom as the film received five Oscar nominations. He directed Little Women and then Barbie, as well as produced Barbie with Margot Robbie. Gerwig also co-wrote the screenplay for Disney’s upcoming live-action remake of Snow White with Erin Cressida Wilson.
