Quentin Tarantino Adds More Scenes Of Margot Robbie To New Film

By Christina Cavaleri July 25, 2019

It comes after he was slammed at a press conference. 

Remember when a journalist asked Quentin Tarantino why Margot Robbie hardly had any lines in Once Upon A Time In Hollywood?

Let's go back.

At Cannes Film Festival a journalist from The New York Times asked why Margot Robbie - who plays Sharon Tate in Quentin's new film - wasn't given many lines, to which he replied with:

"I just reject your hypotheses."

Margot's response was much more detailed:

"I think the moments I was on screen gave a moment to honour Sharon. I think the tragedy was the loss of innocence. To show the wonderful sides of her could be done without speaking. 

"I did feel like I got a lot of time to explore the character without dialogue, which is an interesting thing. Rarely do I get an opportunity to spend so much time on my own as a character."

Well, it turns out that journalist made quite an impression on Quentin as he has reportedly now added more scenes of Margot in the film since the festival.

The Hollywood Reporter reports the director added more than two minutes. Which we know sounds like nothing, but in film terms that's a lot. 

And since Margot is our golden child we definitely want to see more of her insane acting skills on screen.

The film premiered in LA just yesterday with Margot bringing brother Cameron to the red carpet. 

Quentin's ninth film is getting rave reviews so far. According to The Hollywood Reporter critic David Rooney, the "bulk of the movie zigs and zags through the experiences of Rick and Cliff, touching on Hollywood lore both based in fact and purely fictional," weaving in stories about Tate and a wacky and ultimately deranged Manson crew. 

Once Upon A Time In Hollywood hits Aussie Cinemas on the 15th of August.
