Margot Robbie And Jean Smart Talk Deepfakes, Porn, And How They Could Impact Movies In The Future



Director Damien Chazelle’s latest film, Babylon, focuses on a time of significant change and turmoil in Hollywood history. The movie (see what Eric Eisenberg thought of the epic) tells the story of the transition from silent films to “talkies” and how the change upended some actors’ lives. So naturally, while doing press for the movie, the cast was asked in an interview what the “next big thing” in the industry would be. Almost everyone (Margot Robbie and Jean Smart, especially) raised concerns about AI-generated deepfakes and the implications of the technology’s use in the future of movies. 

Margot Robbie was joined by some of her fellow Babylon costars in an EW’s Around the Table video series interview, where she revealed that she had just been discussing her fear of deepfakes with her fellow actor Diego Calva. The Suicide Squad actress said she fears the day when studios may take actors’ faces, making their job obsolete. Robbie told EW:

And we’re like, are they just going to take our faces, and we won’t even be going to work anymore? So creepy.
