'Barbie' actress Margot Robbie had once displayed her hidden talent while communicating kindly with a deaf fan during the premiere of her film.
"Barbie" star Margot Robbie has been the talk of the town for a while now and with the release of the latest Greta Gerwig film, fans over the world have taken a newfound interest in the Australian actress. Robbie is known to interact with her fans enthusiastically at every meet-up, Comic Cons and movie premiere, but it seems people did not know about a particular hidden talent she possessed.

In a viral video shared by @margohgifs, a fanpage dedicated to the actress, we can see the actress signing posters and merchandise brought by the fans at the UK premiere of her 2022 film, "Amsterdam," reports Daily Mail. For brief seconds, Robbie can be seen using sign language to communicate with a deaf fan who is present among the crowd of other fans. As mentioned by Twitter users in the comment section of the video, it seems Robbie was using Auslan, the Australian sign language, to communicate with the fan. The video has amassed over 16.5 million views so far.
She appeared to say "nice to meet you," to the fan before they posed for a photo together. Netizens have poured in their cheers and praises for the 33-year-old "Babylon" actress as she took her time to make a fan feel special and many hailed her as a "real life Barbie" for her kind consideration. Meanwhile, her latest role as Mattel's iconic doll Barbie has created an uproar in the industry as the film got released alongside Christopher Nolan's equally anticipated politically charged biopic, "Oppenheimer."
Sparking a range of memes and posts on the internet, Robbie and her fellow cast members quickly became fan favorites. For most of the screenings, Robbie appeared on the red carpet events clad top to toe in pink outfits and accessories as she continued her sweet interaction with fans, who were eager to meet her. The actress might have been involved in the movie business for a while now as she rose to mainstream popularity with her appearance opposite Leonardo DiCaprio in "The Wolf of Wall Street," but she was always known in the media for her cheerful personality while mingling with her admirers and in interviews.

According to CNBC, the actress also revealed in an interview how she used her earnings from movies to pay off the mortgage for her mom's house. "She'd take money out of the house mortgage and lend me money. So I always knew, 'Oh, I've gotta pay that back.' Everything I owed my mom, I had written down," Robbie revealed. Apparently, she made $12.5 million for her role as Barbie doll in her recent hit flick. "And one day, when I made enough money, I just paid that whole mortgage off completely," she added. "I was like, 'Mom, don't even worry about that mortgage anymore. It doesn't exist anymore.'"
"Barbie" was released worldwide on July 21, 2023 and has made over $182m from 69 territories, as per MarkMeets. It is making history by becoming the first biggest opening weekend for a film directed by a woman.
