Margot Robbie may be one of the hottest actresses in Hollywood right now, but that doesn’t mean she’s free of the pressures that come with being a leading lady.
According to an insider who spoke with OK! magazine, Hollywood execs want the starlet to lose 20 pounds so she can officially add herself to the A-list.
“She’s been working out like a fiend but has been told she should lose a lot more,” the source explained.
When I read this article, my thought was, “Lose 20 pounds from where?!”

And though it’s hard for me to believe that this insider is correct, just because of how absolutely flawless Robbie looked fully naked on camera, it’s hard not to put it past Hollywood to expect an actress to conform to an unrealistic and unhealthy expectation like this.
But who are these “execs” telling her she needs to lose weight?
Robbie is already well on her way to becoming Hollywood royalty without being unhealthy. She has three movies slated for 2016 that put her name among the biggest in film. Aside from starring in David Yates’ adaptation of Tarzan alongside Alexander Skarsgard in the title role, Robbie is also currently filming Suicide Squad with Will Smith and Ben Affleck.
How much bigger can an actress get?
Of course, there’s always room to grow and improve in one’s career. And Robbie isn’t exactly at the point where she’s headlining films all on her own. But she’s well on her way — without dropping a ridiculous 20 pounds.
I think she should stay fit, stay healthy and, most importantly, stay true to herself.
