Margot Robbie is one of the most in-demand actresses in Hollywood, and yet, the question she keeps being asked is when she's going to get pregnant.

The 28-year-old star is currently on a press tour for her latest movie Mary Queen of Scots where she plays Queen Elizabeth II I alongside Saoirse Ronan, who plays Queen Mary.

In case you need a little history refresher, Queen Elizabeth never produced an heir (which was scandalous for that time period, FYI!)

Because of this fun fact, the biggest question on people's minds is when Margot plans to have babies. It's a simple, even harmless, tie-in, but understandably, the actress is fed up with that sexist inquiry.

In fact, Robbie wants people to stop asking this question altogether, regardless if that person is a celebrity or not. Speaking candidly to The Radio Times, Margot made this pet-peeve of hers known.

"It made me really angry," she said of strangers asking about her pregnancy status. "How dare some old guy dictate what I can and can't do when it comes to motherhood or my own body?"

Adding to the topic, she said, "Unfortunately, it's a conversation we're still having." If anything, Margot expressed she was constantly asked about having kids even before she took on the role of Queen Elizabeth I.

When she married British filmmaker Tom Ackerley back in 2016, the I, Tonya star got this question numerous times. "I got married, and the first question in almost every interview is 'Babies?' When are you having one?'"

"I'm so angry that there's this social contract. You're married, now have a baby. Don't presume. I'll do what I'm going to do."

Moral of the story: Don't ask women when they plan to have kids, and don't upset Margot Robbie.
