In recent times, 'Barbie' actress Margot Robbie and 'Oppenheimer' actor Cillian Murphy got together to talk about their works in an episode of Variety’s 'Actors on Actors.' This is when the actress told Cillian that she was told to push the release date by one of three producers of 'Oppenheimer.'

Margot told Murphy, "One of your producers, Chuck Roven, called me, because we worked together on some other projects. And he was like, ‘I think you guys should move your date.’ And I was like, ‘We’re not moving our date. If you’re scared to be up against us, then you move your date.’ And he’s like, ‘We’re not moving our date. I just think it’d be better for you to move.’ And I was like, ‘We’re not moving!’ I think this is a really great pairing, actually. It’s a perfect double billing, 'Oppenheimer' and 'Barbie.'" Upon hearing this, the 'Peaky Blinders' star responded, "That was a good instinct."

Continuing the conversation, Cillian went on to ask Margot if we should be expecting 'Barbie 2.' She revealed, "We put everything into that movie and it's so good that I'm like ‘Oh no.’ I'm also so proud of the fact that it was an original and not a sequel or prequel, which is getting rare and rarer these days. Your movie too is original which is amazing that we both got theatrical opportunities for original ideas. The part of me would be like ‘Oh No’ if we do 'Barbie 2'…I don't know… But at the same time, I would do anything to be back on that set. I would do anything to be back on sets with Ryan (Gosling, co-actor) and Greta (Gerwig, director). Playing Barbie is the best. It's so joyful. so, it's not a no but also I would take a lot to live up to."

'Barbie' is directed by Greta Gerwig while 'Oppenheimer' belongs to Christopher Nolan. Having the same release date worldwide, July 21, both movies clashed at the box office and were two of the massive releases of this year.
