Margot Robbie told: ‘Get a real job’

MARGOT Robbie has revealed her family implored her to quit acting and "get a real job".

She made the comments during an interview for Vogue Magazine where she posed alongside Nicole Kidman.

Robbie, 27, explained: "My family has no connection to the entertainment industry whatsoever, so when I started acting, everyone was like, 'That's fun, but when are you going to actually get a real job?

"And that went on for years…."

Robbie, who started off with a role in Aussie soap Neighbours, later bagged her breakthrough role in Wolf Of Wall Street alongside Leonardo DiCaprio.

Despite this, she admitted that her family make sure she's always grounded.

She explained: "They're impressed for five seconds, and then they're …'So anyway, the dog threw up today.'"

Kidman, 50, revealed in her interview that she still feels "fortunate" when gets cast.

The multi-award winning actress, who has three Golden Globes to her name, also still suffers from terrible nerves.

"I still feel like I'm the kid at drama school hoping to get a role," said Kidman.

"I always feel like I'm so fortunate and lucky to have the job.

"Part of my job now is to give back and help create opportunities for the next generation - particularly with female directors, because it is so imbalanced."
