Margot Robbie reveals ‘dorky’ actress turned down ‘Barbie’ role

This Barbie is dorky.

Margot Robbie revealed she tried to cast Israeli beauty queen Gal Gadot in her upcoming blockbuster because she had such strong “Barbie energy,” but the actress turned her down.

“Gal Gadot is so impossibly beautiful, but you don’t hate her for being that beautiful, because she’s so genuinely sincere, and she’s so enthusiastically kind, that it’s almost dorky,” the Australian actress told Vogue in a cover story published Wednesday.

“It’s like right before being a dork,” Robbie added.

Gadot — who was crowned Miss Israel in 2004 and has starred in movies like “Wonder Woman” and the “Fast & Furious” franchise — wasn’t available to shoot the Greta Gerwig-helmed “Barbie” film. It’s likely she was busy filming other projects, including Gerwig’s upcoming “Snow White” film.

While Robbie plays the titular role in the film, there are several other iterations of the infamous doll in this universe.

Issa Rae, Hari Nef, Emma Mackey, Dua Lipa, Sharon Rooney, Ana Cruz Kayne, Alexandra Shipp and Kate McKinnon are among the actress’ who will help bring the Mattel icon to life, while Ryan Gosling stars opposite Robbie as Ken.

Elsewhere in the interview, the “Suicide Squad” star admitted that she doesn’t know if she even owned a Barbie doll growing up.

“I don’t think I did,” she said.

“I know my cousin had a bunch of Barbies, and I’d go to her house.”

The Oscar nominee — who posed on the magazine cover in a satin Versace gown covered in flowers — both produces and stars in the movie, having secured the film rights for her company, LuckyChap.

“It wasn’t that I ever wanted to play Barbie, or dreamt of being Barbie, or anything like that,” she said.

“This is going to sound stupid, but I really didn’t even think about playing Barbie until years into developing the project.”

When it comes to her character’s outfits, which range from a tight neon rollerskating ensemble to a pink cowgirl set, the blond beauty said the doll “should never be sexy.”

“I’m like, Okay, she’s a doll. She’s a plastic doll. She doesn’t have organs. If she doesn’t have organs, she doesn’t have reproductive organs,” Robbie explained.

She went on to note that Barbie probably wouldn’t “feel sexual desire.”

“She is sexualized. But she should never be sexy. People can project sex onto her,” the “Babylon” star continued.

“Yes, she can wear a short skirt, but because it’s fun and pink. Not because she wanted you to see her butt.”

“Barbie” hits theaters on July 21.
