"I just don't like 'looks' being the focus when there are so many other things to discuss. It's a wasted opportunity to me," she told the publication.

"Sometimes I sit down, someone asks a certain question — not even necessarily looks-related — and I am thinking to myself, 'I've worked with so many interesting people. Don't you want to hear a story about [Martin] Scorsese?' If I was in their shoes, I'd be asking something different."

"She is 26 and beautiful, not in that otherworldly, catwalk way but in a minor knock-around key, a blue mood, a slow dance," Cohen wrote. "She is blonde but dark at the roots. She is tall but only with the help of certain shoes. She can be sexy and composed even while naked but only in character. As I said, she is from Australia."

Robbie first rose to fame on 'Neighbours' before getting her big break in 2013 opposite Leonardo DiCaprio in 'The Wolf of Wall Street'.
