Margot Robbie has addressed comments that she was seen ‘crying’ outside of Cara Delevingne’s LA home in September.
At the time, rumours began circulating that Robbie was concerned about the wellbeing of her Suicide Squad co-star Delevingne, as the model had also been spotted looking seemingly upset and displaying “erratic behaviour”.
In early September, Delevingne was seen boarding Jay-Z’s private jet before getting off 45 minutes later and was then seen leaving the airport wearing only socks.
Now, in a new interview with Vanity Fair, Robbie spoke out about the rumours and quashed the suggestion that she had been crying, denying that she was even at Delevingne’s house at the time the photos were taken.
Robbie said that after the photos were published, her mother phoned her to ask whether both she and Delevingne were OK.
“I’m like, ‘First of all, yes and yes,’” Robbie said. “And second of all, I’m not at Cara’s house – I’m outside an Airbnb that I was renting for five days! And I’m not crying!”
Explaining further, Robbie added: “I had something in my eye. I’m trying to grab my face mask, trying to hold a coffee cup, and I couldn’t get a hair outta my eye.”

Margot Robbie and Cara Delevingne have been close friends for several years, and both of them have had their fair share of paparazzi intrusions. While holidaying together in Argentina last month, a paparazzo tried to photograph them getting into a taxi together. At the time, more rumours swirled suggesting that Robbie had been hurt.
The former Neighbours star told Vanity Fair that while she wasn’t injured in the incident, she “could have been”, and said that her family in Australia have also been put in danger by photographers desperate for a photo.
“If my mom dies in a car accident because you wanted a photo of me going in the grocery shop, or you knock my nephew off a bike—for what? For a photo?” she said. “It’s dangerous but still weirdly nothing feels like it changes.”
