The Hollywood strike, which has been ongoing for several months, continues to draw the support of A-list celebrities. The latest star to join the picket line is Margot Robbie, the acclaimed actress who has also made her mark as a producer. Margot’s presence at the SAG-AFTRA rally on Wednesday sent ripples of excitement among fans and fellow industry professionals.
Margot Robbie, known for her roles in films like “The Wolf of Wall Street” and “Birds of Prey,” and as the producer and lead in the blockbuster hit “Barbie,” was seen at the picket line proudly wearing a white shirt with “SAG AFTRA on strike” emblazoned across it. With her blonde hair down, she stood shoulder to shoulder with fellow actors and writers in West Hollywood, showing her solidarity for the ongoing strike.
Accompanying Margot Robbie was actress Samara Weaving, who had also starred alongside her in the 2022 film “Babylon.” The duo was seen holding signs and passionately chanting slogans in support of the striking Hollywood workers.
The images of Margot Robbie and Samara Weaving’s participation in the rally quickly went viral on social media platforms, with fans expressing their admiration and support. One fan tweeted, “Good for her, and also for the equally awesome Samara Weaving right behind her.” Another fan praised Margot’s casual attire, stating, “She looks like she just rolled out of bed in that shirt and still looks fine as hell.” Many recognized the significance of celebrities joining the strike, with one fan commenting, “This is how strikes are won.” Another cleverly quipped, “Come on Barbie, let’s go strike!” adding, “This Barbie believes in fair wages and union representation.”
The Hollywood strike, which began on July 14, coincidentally occurred just a week before the release of Margot Robbie’s “Barbie” on July 21. The film, directed by Greta Gerwig and starring Margot Robbie and Ryan Gosling as Mattel dolls, became a box office sensation, grossing a staggering $1 billion worldwide.
Margot Robbie’s participation in the SAG-AFTRA rally serves as a testament to the solidarity within the industry and the importance of fair labor practices in Hollywood. As the strike continues, the support of high-profile figures like Robbie and Weaving reinforces the message that change is essential for the betterment of all those involved in the entertainment business.
