Margot Robbie Talks Seeking American Dream at G’Day USA Gala

Margot Robbie is living the American Dream.

In her acceptance speech for G’Day USA’s excellence in film award on Saturday night, the Australian actress revealed the recent revelation she had when a journalist described how Robbie and former figure skater Tonya Harding, who Robbie plays in “I, Tonya,” as pursing similar dreams.

“I moved to America seeking more opportunities, I bought a house here, I started a business here, I had found prosperity and success in this country,” the “I, Tonya” star said. “I’m sure many Aussies in the room know that in school we’re taught that Australia is the lucky country, and it is… but we’re also taught that the United States of America is the land of opportunity, and I’ve always thought if it that way.”
