While many women would consider it a complement to be told they resemble Margot Robbie, that is not the case for French actress Emma Mackey.
Best known for her role in Netflix comedy “Sex Education”, Mackey, 24, admits that while she finds the comparison flattering, she’s also kind of getting sick of it.
“I genuinely just don’t see it at all. But it’s fine. I wish people would stop comparing,” she said in an interview with The Independent.
“Like, it’s lovely to be compared to Margot Robbie, but mostly I’d rather people focus on the jobs that we’re both doing rather than what we look like,” she added.
“Hollywood churns out people who look the same and we love to put people in boxes,” Mackey continued. “It’s just a thing that we do as a species, we categorize people, we always have.”
