The internet is losing its mind as Emma Mackey is cast beside Margot Robbie for Greta Gerwig’s new Barbie movie.
Sex Education star Emma Mackey has been compared to Margot Robbie from the day she debut on the small screen.
You may be wondering, are Emma Mackey Margot Robbie related to each other? Well, as far as we know, they’re not…but it sure looks like they are! The internet has photoshopped Emma Mackey Margot Robbie to be in the same photo and the resemblance really is uncanny.
Finally, we’re all getting the Margot Robbie and Emma Mackey crossover of our dreams.
Margot Robbie is set to star in Barbie, playing the protagonist who is kicked out of Barbieland for not being perfect enough… Sounds like super realistic casting. I mean, let’s be real about the fact that Emma Mackey and Margot Robbie are absolute perfections!
Anyway, the Emma Mackey Margot Robbie movie is already star-studded with the likes of Ryan Gosling, Will Ferrell, Harry Styles, Simu Liu, America Ferrera and even more brilliant actors, now Emma Mackey has been added to that list and Twitter is going absolutely off about it.

Even though I think it was about time a filmmaker cashed in on how much Emma Mackey and Margot look alike, Emma has been quoted saying that she wishes “people would focus on the jobs we’re doing rather than what we look like,”
“I genuinely just don’t see it at all. Like, it’s lovely to be compared to Margot Robbie, but mostly I’d rather people focus on the jobs that we’re both doing rather than what we look like.” Emma told The Independent in an interview.
“Hollywood churns out people who look the same and we love to put people in boxes,” She said.
“It’s just a thing that we do as a species, we categorise people, we always have.”
Hopefully, this doesn’t mean there is any tension on set. I am secretly psyched to see this Margot Robbie Emma Mackey combo.
