Margot Robbie's Family Wanted Her to Quit Acting

And they're still not impressed with her career.

Margot Robbie is good at that whole acting thing, but not everyone supported her career choice. In a recent interview with British Vogue, the Oscar nominee admitted that her family wasn't exactly thrilled that she decided to become an actor.

"My family has no connection to the entertainment industry whatsoever, so when I started acting, everyone was like, 'That's fun, but when are you going to actually get a real job?'" she explained. "And that went on for years."

Now, of course, Robbie has more than proven her talent, with roles in movies like Wolf of Wall StreetSuicide Squad, and this year's Oscar-nominated I, Tonya. So how does the Robbie family feel now that she's such a success? They're basically like, "meh."

"They're impressed for like five seconds," she said. "And then they're, 'So anyway, the dog threw up today.'"

Keep that in mind the next time your parents aren't impressed with your job.
