    Great interview, and I have always agreed in that I can't believe how young she is. She gives the impression that she is older, but in all of the positive ways, and none of the negative.

      ...and it comes back 4:40. >:-( ALWAYS THE SAME with the DP interviews - brilliant content but VERY little attention to audio quality!! If everything else works it's the actor's hair ruining the lav sound. Or two mics mixed too loudly together. Unbelievable.

    This was really interesting, I like how into it she is as a producer.

    This is a terrible interview & it's not her fault. He keeps it shallow when there's so much to ask about her relationship with Tonya Harding and how she tapped into making her a human we can sympathize with (very hard to do, which she does). This interview stays on the surface and doesn't ask anything interesting... Unfortunate. Margot Robbie is truly great.

      Maria Eduarda Mayrinck I agree he could have stayed closer to the film as a topic, but his reviews are actually quite refreshing in that they just talk like normal people

    Love hearing my pretty much my exact accent/voice tone from her. A lot of Aussie actors lose their accents but she hasn't! Aussies/brits were introduced to her TEN YEARS AGO on neighbors. I really respect Margot for everything she is doing, especially the behind the scenes production side. GO YOU GOOD THING!

    This is probably one of my favourite interviews you've done. I love how detailed she is when talking about being an actor and producer and what that involves. It was really interesting. She also seems really down to earth

    I must say this interview is a letdown. Simply because nowhere in the shot is David visible in some random mirror...smh.

    Haven't seen the film (can't bear the thought of forcing myself to watch it). But, Tonya Harding is a whitetrash idiot from my hometown. It's already a crappy place, but she is considered a disgrace among the people that live here. She being portrayed in any sort of glamorous/sympathetic light is obscene and unbelievable.

    • Natalie Zayas-Bazan
      Natalie Zayas-Bazan Year ago +2

      James Montegomery I thought the same before I watched the film. I didnt want to support a film that encouraged what Tonya did. It’s not like at all. It’s a black comedy, constantly breaking the 4th wall and is inconsistent on purpose.

    • Aliyah J.
      Aliyah J. 2 years ago +8

      I'm really getting tired of people throwing around the word "glamorize" whenever they see something in a movie or TV show they don't like. Maybe try to understand that they're trying to tell a story. I don't see how telling a story about something or someone means they're making it glamorous. People have done more shameful things than what has happened to Tonya for you to be upset about. Just because the media has painted Tonya as white trash doesn't mean she's not a real person. For the longest the media was telling everyone her story and now for once the movie is going to tell you her side of the story.
      Maybe remind people that she's not just the girl who possibly planned an attack on someone but that she was a phenomenal skater who had a pretty crappy life with crappy people in her life.
      Just because someone does something bad doesn't mean they are a bad person. God how small minded can a person be? Jesus!

      Damn, it wouldn't be fun to be in your shoes with this comment- if you can't have any empathy or understanding for someone else and how they could make the choices they have in their life (in this case extreme abuse from her mother, to the figure skating world, to the public to her spouse), then that means you struggle to find any for yourself. Best to you, because I've been there and its not fun.

      James Montegomery So people don't deserve to have any redeeming attriiubutes or success in their or 2nd or 3rd acts in your towns opinion ?
      And are you the spokesperson for the town because it looks like your name isn't on the city council's payroll as spokesperson?

  • Suzie K

    Watching this as someone who is/used to be her fan, I wonder at times if it is just growing confidence or utter arrogance she is displaying. I cant decide. 10 years in the industry is not much, mostly when during the 10 years she didn't experience ANY difficulties or hardship in terms of life experience. I wonder what she can bring to the table with other 40-50 yr olds sitting around. Im not sure even I would take her seriously.

    • Optimus Wev

      You know her well do you? Get a life and stop judging, honesty people on the internet.

    • Aliyah J.
      Aliyah J. 2 years ago +18

      So annoying how people can't stand a confident woman. People want women to be insecure and not sure of themselves. When they're confident in who they are some how they're conceited or arrogant. I think I, Tonya definitely proved that she is an amazing actress. Being pretty or "hot" doesn't dismiss you as a good actor or actress.
      Yes there are many actors who only get roles for being pretty but after hearing how hard she worked for this role and whatnot I'm pretty positive that's why she wanted to tackle this role because she wanted to show people that she can be taken seriously. And to say when she gets older people won't take her seriously is just sexist and a constant stigma that women are only pretty when they're young.

    • Beckey G.
      Beckey G. 2 years ago +25

      You think she hasn't experienced any difficulties or hardship in her life? And you know this because you're bff's, or what? What does that have to do with anything anyway? Steven Spielberg was around her age when he first made his big hits with Duel, Sugarland Express, and then Jaws. My point is talent can come at any age or experience. All the awards and accolades she is receiving for I, Tonya prove she is not just a pretty face. So maybe give her some slack.

      go see I, Tonya. You'll understand why she has a right to have some confidence in herself as a professional.

      You know there are also a lot of producers 40/50/60 years olds in the industry who are dumb af...Weinstein, Ratner etc.

    Thank you, as always for your brilliant interviews. They're just so much fun and I find something to learn in them even though I have nothing to do with the film industry.
    I was searching your channel today for any interviews on Loving Vincent. Do have any coming up?

      polynesianpuppet Oh, well. If YOU don't like her and since you have NO CHOICE but watching all of DP/30s interviews then David must make sure that Jennifer Lawrence never works again! (...?)

    • xAd
      xAd Year ago

      Yep. There was another recent video of her on a plane. She just flat-out stood up and took control of the air-hostess mic. She was doing some sport chant, nobody on board was pleased or joined it.

    • Natalie Zayas-Bazan

      I lost hope in Jlaw after watching this video tvclip.biz/video/KyVjdtUBSY8/video.html It's appauling what she did. Imagine what could've been in that briefcase, that guy's whole career could've gone down the toilet. Some people have to actually work to get somewhere in life, not just get randomly spotted on the street and thrust into a life of ease (like her).

    Saw it at TIFF, it was pretty bad. Margot is horribly miscast as Tonya Harding.

    • Chandasouk
      Chandasouk 2 years ago +3

      Aliyah Jordan For sure. I thought Margot was good in the role but I didn't compare her and Tonya interviews side by side or anything to be sure. Was an interesting flick 'cause I was not expecting all the fourth wall breaking or mockumentary style narrative. I thought it was gonna be a small part of it.

    • Aliyah J.
      Aliyah J. 2 years ago +3

      Yeah she don't look like her at all but that's it. She sure played the hell out of her though. Her voice and everything. Sometimes it's not always about finding someone that looks exactly like them but acts like them.

    • Joe Smith
      Joe Smith 2 years ago +4

      Beckey G. Right, go with the herd. It's safer.

      Well, your in the minority of all the reviews and her 20 nominations of awards for best actress say differently too. I think I'll trust them over you.
