"I have a normal 24-year-old life," the Focus star tells Marie Claire

Margot Robbie's interview could end up haunting her!

The Focus actress covers Marie Claire's March issue, and in the accompanying profile, she makes a bold statement about dating fellow actors. "I am officially off the market," proclaims Robbie, who last dated assistant director Tom Ackerley. "I made a conscious decision not to date actors, but not because I hate actors. That's a nasty generalization to make, and that's not the case. People take such an interest in your love life when you have a profile that it puts a lot of stress on a relationship. So, two people with profiles, I figure it's just double the amount of scrutiny, and I'd like to avoid that at all costs."

In January, however, she was seen kissing Alexander Skarsgård at the Sundance Film Festival.

Neither Robbie nor Skarsgård have commented on the club hookup via their reps. And while the blond and beautiful actors may have packed on the PDA, that doesn't necessarily mean that they're a couple.


Robbie, it seems, is still getting used to life in the limelight.

"I have a normal 24-year-old life," says Robbie, who co-stars with Skarsgård in Warner Bros.' Tarzan. "If I were a waitress, I'd probably have the exact same lifestyle," she continues. "I'd go to the same clubs I go to already, live in the same house with the same housemates, hang out with the same people."

The Australian actress nearly stole the show in 2013's The Wolf of Wall Street, but to her credit, Robbi hasn't let fame get to her head. Growing up, she says, "It was weird because a lot of my friends were very wealthy. It was interesting to see what you can have in life and know what it was like not to have it. It makes you very ambitious. It seemed horrible at the time, but I'm grateful I had it that way, because I knew what I wanted to achieve." She's since joined high-profile projects like Warner Bros.' Suicide Squad, but she remains wary of how Hollywood works. "I'm so overly optimistic to a fault, but this job has made me start questioning people's motives…I have never been a cynical person. I'd rather trust nine people and have the tenth one stab me in the back. I'd take that fall in order to have those nine friendships or working relationships instead of having none," she tells the magazine. "That's not living."

The March issue of Marie Claire is on newsstands Feb. 17.
