She explained how the death threats made her look into her own personal security, and it’s pretty eye-opening stuff.

There’s just all this stuff you learn along the way, like, when you get those death threats, it’s [smart] to have a security team do a background check on whoever sent them to see if there is any past history of violence because you’ll need to know whether you need security to go to certain events.”
And every time you do a background check, it’s going to cost $2,000, so take that into consideration when you’re getting yourself into this.”

However, Robbie doesn’t regret taking on the role whatsoever, but did say the reaction was a lot stronger than she had anticipated.

I just wish someone had explained a lot of those things to me early on. I wouldn’t have resented the position I found myself in because I would’ve known what I was getting myself into.”
