Margot Robbie has defended her minimal screentime in the 2019 film Once Upon a Time in Hollywood.
The actor, 32, became the youngest-ever star to be given a special Bafta: A Life in Pictures tribute in London on Tuesday (22 November).
Admitting that several scenes she had filmed had been cut, Robbie said she “watched it and thought we got across what we wanted to get across”.
When the film was released, many fans had complained that Robbie didn’t have enough scenes or dialogue in the film.
In a 2019 interview, Tarantino had defended himself, telling an interviewer who raised the criticisms to him: “I reject your hypothesis.”
Robbie, sitting beside him at the time, said: “I think the moments on screen show those wonderful sides of [Sharon Tate] could be adequately done without speaking.”
At the Bafta event this week, Robbie also said that she first contacted “idol” Tarantino after filming 2017’s I, Tonya, because that was when she realised she was “a good actor”.
In that film, Robbie had played digraced figure skater Tonya Harding.
