Margot Robbie reveals police shut down the set of her latest movie Amsterdam: ‘You have to stop’

Margot Robbie has revealed the set of her latest movie was shut down by police.

The Australian actress, 32, said production on her film Amsterdam was halted by California police after the crew kept filming after their permit had expired.

She explained on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon that director David O. Russell and co-star Christian Bale were working so hard they forgot to stop.

‘They’re both so dedicated to this film and their craft that David never called “cut” on this film. So technically we didn’t ever really stop,’ she said. 

This meant they went overtime and local authorities were called to get everyone to clear out.

Margot said: ‘It was the last day of shooting and Christian was saying his dialogue and David’s there and he’s directing… but the permit was up.’

Luckily, it happened on the last day of shooting so the film was successfully completed.

Amsterdam is a historical comedy set in the 1930s, and co-stars Anya Taylor-Joy, Christian Bale and Taylor Swift.

Margot was born in Dalby, Queensland, and later grew up on the Gold Coast.
