Anne Hathaway Was Close To Becoming Barbie Long Before Margot Robbie

Barbie was the biggest hit of the year, as it earned a staggering $1.4 billion at the Box Office, shattering several records and truly adding a great feat in the careers of both Margot Robbie and Greta Gerwig as actor and director respectively. It is definitely their defining film now as Margot Robbie is a bonafide superstar.

While speaking to Variety, Anne Hathaway revealed that she was set to portray the role of Barbie in the film that ultimately got canceled. In fact, she replaced Amy Schumer in the canned film. That said, Hathaway made it clear she was glad Margot Robbie got to portray Barbie as she felt no one could have done a better job than her.

“[Margot Robbie] hit a bullseye. The bullseye caused the entire world to reach this level of ecstasy…I genuinely think their film was the best possible version. It’s easy just to be thrilled and happy [for them]. I love watching women kill it. To do so well, so undeniably that they actually had to write new records…come on!”

Barbie has shown just how well Margot Robbie can act in any given role, as many fans feel that she more than deserves the awards, accolades and love she has been getting over the past several months. We’ll have to see what’s next in store for the talented actress.

While speaking to AP Entertainment, Margot Robbie was asked about a sequel to Barbie. Margot Robbie made it clear that when they made the first film, they didn’t have any sequels planned for the future.


“I think we put everything into this one. We didn’t build it to be a trilogy or something. It was like Greta put everything into this movie, so I can’t imagine what would be next.”

Fans are disappointed that Barbie might not be getting a sequel somewhere down the line. That being said, Margot Robbie will have other projects in the pipeline for fans to enjoy in the future and that’s what fans will care about now.
