Margot Robbie Claims She Made Her ‘Babylon’ Kiss Scene with Brad Pitt Up: ‘Sue Me’

Margot Robbie stole a smooch from Brad Pitt in their most recent film. The Academy Award actress, 32, claimed that the kiss sequence with her Babylon costar in their new film “wasn’t in the script,” telling E! News that she improvised the kiss with director Damien Chazelle’s help.

“I thought, ‘When else am I gonna get the chance to kiss Brad Pitt? I’m just gonna go for it,’ ” she said, noting that the scene “was just great” as she detailed how the talk with Chazelle, 37, went.

“I said, ‘Damien, I think Nellie would just go up and kiss Jack. And Damien was like, ‘Well, she could — wait, hold on. You just wanna kiss Brad Pitt,’ ” Robbie recalled. “And I was like, ‘Oh, so sue me. This opportunity might never come up again.’ And he was like, ‘It does work for the character,’ and I was like, ‘I think so.’ “

After one take, she said the Academy Award-winning director was persuaded. “He was like, ‘No, do it again. That really works.’ I was like, ‘Oh, great,'” said Robbie.

“I actually kissed Katherine [Waterston], as well, but I don’t know if that made the cut,” Robbie added of their costar, who plays Ruth Arzner.

In Babylon, Robbie plays aspiring actress Nellie LaRoy as the film business transforms from silent to talkies in the 1920s. Pitt, 58, takes on the role of actor Jack Conrad.

During an interview with WSJ. Magazine last month, the Australian actress revealed some of the hard efforts that went into the film. “I’ve never worked so hard in my whole life. By the end of the job, I was shattered “Robbie said.

Robbie previously acted alongside Pitt in Quentin Tarantino’s Once Upon a Time… in Hollywood (2019) and Adam McKay’s The Big Short (2015). Babylon premieres on December 23rd.
