She said she didn’t want to play indoors with toys because she was a ‘mud kind of gal’ even though her sisters and cousins ​​had dolls.

When asked about her memories of playing with the Barbie doll, she said, ‘Personally, I didn’t have anything to remember.’

But when she played with dolls they weren’t picture perfect.

‘I think they were all so jerky because they weren’t taken care of. They were all weird barbies,’ she added.

And Thursday shed some light on what kind of kid he was.

She hilariously revealed how she faked her own death to get back at the babysitter she had trouble with as a young girl.

Siren revealed during an interview conducted before the SAG-AFTRA strike on BBC 2 that she once smeared ketchup on her body and slept next to a kitchen knife after an argument with a new babysitter she didn’t like so much.

Robbie waited 45 minutes to discover Aya – but said it was worth it to see her run away from the house screaming.

‘We got a new babysitter,’ recalled Margot during an interview with BBC Radio 2. And I wanted my old babysitter, Talia, back, who was 16 and I thought she was so cool. And then we got this much older woman and I wasn’t happy about it.’

‘He asked me to take a bath and I didn’t want to, and he was very cranky and I thought, “I’ll show you.”

‘And so I got a big kitchen knife and ketchup and I lay naked on the tiles, covered myself in ketchup and put the kitchen knife on.

‘And I waited like 45 minutes for him to find me. But it was worth the wait.’

‘Did she run away from the house screaming?’ asked interviewer Joe Ball.

‘Oh yes,’ she replied.

‘You made your own death,’ cried Ryan Gosling. ‘I did,’ replied Margot.

The star also recalled another time he scared people as a child – so much so that an ambulance was called.

‘I once practiced pratfalling on the cinema stairs in the shopping center where I’m from,’ she said. ‘People started calling an ambulance, I guess I was a bit of a dramatic child.

‘Dazzling’: Barbie starring Margot Robbie and Ryan Gosling hits with critics

‘My main criticism really has nothing to do with the content. Barbie or no Barbie, this isn’t such a good movie on the inside. It’s uneven, incoherent, the plot has no real meaning – and the dead hand of corporate America is heavy on it.’ – Sarah Vine, Daily Mail

‘Yes, Barbie is funny. Yes, it will make you laugh and make you think. but […] It won’t change your life, maybe not your summer, not even your week.’ – Brian Viner, Daily Mail

‘This is a truly original work – one of the smartest, funniest, sweetest, most insightful and just plain flat-out entertaining movies of the year’ – Richard Roper, Chicago Sun-Times

‘In Gerwig’s capable hands, even a movie about one of the most popular toys of all time defies expectations at every turn. Barbie is his mainstream masterpiece, a dazzling dream that will touch the soul of everyone who sees it’ – Coleman Spield, The Daily Beast

A master’s thesis on feminism and an Austin Powers-esque romp’ – Chandler Levack, Globe and Mail

‘Barbie’s jealousy, combined with Gerwig’s penchant for dismantling the patriarchy, sometimes makes the movie a lumpy, tonally disjointed viewing experience. But for the most part, he strikes a delightful balance between the silly and the serious’ – Ann Hornaday, The Washington Post

‘Barbed statement wrapped in a visually beautiful and wonderfully silly cinematic confection’ – Katie Walsh, Tribune News Service

‘Beneath all the constant fuchsia is a soulful film. Who has heart and ambition as well as a lot of beauty, inside and out’ – Tomris Lafley, The Rap

‘Actually this comedy clicks with great performances starting from the main role. Funniest cast I’ve seen in a while’ – Peter Howell, Toronto Star

‘It’s a surprisingly fun watch that manages to simultaneously celebrate and satirize the Barbie brand, pairing its feminism and femininity with a floaty pink skirt like Garpcore sandals’ – Alice Saville, Time Out

‘Robbie takes an archetype long dismissed as an airheaded caricature and, in moments of deep feeling, teases and repels him’ – Justin Chang, Los Angeles Times
