With her latest blockbuster film Barbie defying expectations and logic to become this year’s biggest superhit, actress Margot Robbie is on cloud nine with all the success she’s receiving from her role as the titular protagonist of the movie. A lot of that success can also be attributed to her amazing chemistry with her co-stars, not just in this film, but most of them in her career.

This on-screen chemistry has led her to execute many critically appraised performances in many of her projects in the past, but it doesn’t just stop after the camera stops rolling. In an interview during the promotion of her then-upcoming film, Babylon, the actress proved she isn’t shy about making a joke at her co-star’s expense, even if that star happens to be Brad Pitt.

One of the famous dynamic duos in this regard is actress Margot Robbie and Brad Pitt.

To witness just how open they are with each other off set, we can look at one of their past interviews for their then-upcoming film, Babylon.

While explaining how they brought some of those larger-than-life scenes into existence, Pitt suffered a slip of the tongue, which made him fumble words, and instead of quoting seven hundred extras on set, he said seven. Robbie immediately caught this error and pointed it out, which made the entire cast laugh. She further pushed it, mockingly saying what a great achievement it was to have seven extras on set for such a big production.
