Margot Robbie's "dad" apparently left her mother and other siblings when she was a baby. She's talked about it once or twice, basically saying she doesn't want anything to do with him really, and that's about it.
Which is why I don't get why it's a headline on the Dailymail.
Now *I* have a personal reason for talking about it i.e. I know exactly what it feels like to have a sperm donor, so I'm all for calling out deadbeat dads (and moms) when the occasion warrants it. Which is pretty much always, truth be told.
But it must be a slow news day, because all the Daily Fail can come up with is her sperm donor, who is a "sugar cane tycoon" (those still exist?), and apparently lives near his ex wife, has "liked" Margot's film, Focus i.e. the movie where she and Will Smith play con artists, on Facebook.
That's it. That and one of her brothers forgave him for being a douchebag, and they see each other. Big Whoop.
I was expecting a story, along the lines of Adele's father talking to the press about her, but never speaking to her, or even attempting to, after leaving when she was a baby. Not some dude who watches his estranged daughter's movies, is in contact with at least one of his kids, and watches the Oscars when she goes (okay that part is asshole-ish, to go out in public and do it, etc).
Anyway, I feel for you Margot. However, I think she, just like me, has learned that she is not any less than she is, with him not being there. And that's just fine.
