Birds of Prey star Margot Robbie revealed that she still hasn’t seen any of the Star Wars films.
This weekend, many moviegoers will flock to theaters to witness the final chapter of the Star Wars saga, The Rise of Skywalker. Of course, not everyone has been following the Star Wars saga unfold over the past four decades and Birds of Prey star Margot Robbie previously revealed she is among those who haven’t seen any film in the franchise.
During an interview on Jimmy Kimmel Live, Margot Robbie was asked to comment on her next film, Bombshell, opening against Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker. In response, the Birds of the Prey star admitted that she still hasn’t seen any of the Star Wars films:
“You’re gonna kill me and a lot of people out there are gonna kill me… I’ve never seen Star Wars. Never. I’ve never seen any of them.”
When Margot Robbie was asked how she managed to avoid seeing the Star Wars films, the Birds of Prey star noted that at this point she’s kind of amused by the reactions. However, the Birds of Prey star seemed to indicated that she may check out the Star Wars franchise should life ever “get a bit dull”:
“After a couple of years it hadn’t happened and it really upsets people. Like, people get really angry that I haven’t watched any of them and it’s really kind of funny. So, I’ve held off now. It particularly infuriates my husand, so I’ve really held off. It’s kind of nice having it in my back pocket. Like, should life ever get a bit dull I know that I’ve got Star Wars.”

Here is the official synopsis for Margot Robbie’s Birds of Prey:
“You ever hear the one about the cop, the songbird, the psycho and the mafia princess? Birds of Prey (And the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn) is a twisted tale told by Harley herself, as only Harley can tell it. When Gotham’s most nefariously narcissistic villain, Roman Sionis, and his zealous right-hand, Zsasz, put a target on a young girl named Cass, the city is turned upside down looking for her. Harley, Huntress, Black Canary and Renee Montoya’s paths collide, and the unlikely foursome have no choice but to team up to take Roman down.”
Directed by Cathy Yan from a script penned by Bumblebee writer Christina Hodson, Birds of Prey stars Mary Elizabeth Winstead as Huntress, Jurnee Smollett-Bell as Black Canary, Ella Jay Basco as Cassandra Cain, Rosie Perez as Renee Montoya, Chris Messina as Victor Zsasz, Ewan McGregor as Black Mask, and Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn. Ali Wong, Robert Catrini, and Michael Masini have also been cast in undisclosed roles.
Birds of Prey will be released in theaters on February 7, 2020.
