Mexico, jan 27 (EFE).– The two-times nominated for an Oscar Margot Robbie he stepped on mexican soil in order to promote Birds of Prey, where he advocated the union between women, both on screen and in real life, and so left to see in an interview with to Efe.

In this tape again become in the skin of Harley Quinn. Now, his break with the Joker is imminent and you must show your worth in a solo, but for different circumstances. In pursuit of a girl, this anti-hero will join forces with the Canary and Black Jacket, his allies in this story.

“It reflects the dynamic that we women have in real life and I think that already for a very long time made us believe otherwise. They are still putting women competing against other women. I’ve only found great support in the women that I have surrounded. I have a sisterhood with women around me very strong and I want to see more of that on the screen,” said the australian.

“In part, I think it’s funny to see a group of women having fun in the cinema. You will have fun watching them them have fun, then I don’t understand the reason of love to put angry between them”, he added.

In regards to female empowerment, so vivid in the society and in the film industry, the main protagonist of I, Tonya (2018) highlighted the importance of seeing strong women in an environment where there is pervasive violence.

In this film, Margot is also involved as executive producer, a facet that has already been explored in other tapes, and -in the words of the actress – a sum with the other.

“I love to produce and act. There are times that the two roles complement each other. There are a lot of people and if you’re a good producer you put someone to help you and you’re delegating things because you trust your actors, your director of photography and your director. My role as a producer is something stressful unlike when I do that is fun and creative, but I love doing both,” he said.

IN GOOD COMPANY

In addition to Margot, the actress was accompanied by Jurnee Smollett-Bell and Mary Elizabeth Winstead, who personify Canary and Black Jacket, respectively, and was the trio who revealed in what they identify with the characters they embody in the film, which opens February 7.

“She (Harley Quinn) always wants to be surrounded by a group of friends and I am like. I am a person who likes to be with people, hate to be alone. I’m always surrounded by, because I find it more fun,” said Robbie.

“Yes, that makes sense. That’s you. I can identify a little with being lonely and not knowing where to fit in. We see Hunter in the film you try to understand how to work in a group in which perhaps does not fit and that I learned also from me, that I must not be like the other people to enjoy being in a group”, said Winstead.

In turn, Smollett-Bell said: “When we started to film it I was going through a time where he said: ‘the world stinks, because I don’t want to be in this world, I will go to live on an island’, and that is what the Canarian black also feels when we know it. (…) And I can identify with that.”

Finally, throughout the plot there are women of different cultures and roots, a fact of inclusion that was built to awareness and knowing how relevant that is today.

“We were interested in that and, if you think about it, the representation (of women) is still not where it should be, for nothing. So we need more female representation to be able to do something to change. Part of that is real life. Not everyone in real life are white,” said Margot.
