It turns out, though, that the role that’s finally gotten her into the Oscar noms wouldn’t have happened without her persistence and determination to make things happen for herself.
Margot recently spoke to MailOnline at the UK premiere of the film, revealing that if she hadn’t of produced the film herself she would not have been offered such a huge and challenging role.
"I definitely don’t think anybody would have given me this role if I hadn’t gone after it and I just wasn’t prepared to wait another 10 years for someone to happen to offer me a role like this.
"It was a difficult script to make from a producerial point of view, it had a lot of challenges and you were never going to get a tonne of money for something so unconventional.
"It’s the Olympics, it spans over four decades and there’s a lot of things that make it expensive, it was a period script. It was a huge undertaking as new producers. It was amazing and I think taking a gamble like that can pay off.”
Her dedication has definitely paid off and she’s inspiring us to take matters into our own hands when it comes to the dreams we have in life!
