Barbie star Margot Robbie has revealed whether she would be interested in making a sequel to the immensely popular movie.

Robbie sat down with Oppenheimer star Cillian Murphy for Variety’s Actors on Actors interview series. As the two stars discussed their respective films, Murphy asked if Robbie could see Barbie 2 happening. Robbie explained that she’d love to work with Greta Gerwig and Ryan Gosling again but that she was a bit apprehensive about making a sequel to an original movie.

“We put everything into that movie and it’s so good that I’m like, ‘Oh no,'” Robbie answered. “And I was also so proud of the fact that it was an original story. It wasn’t a sequel or prequel or remake, which is getting rarer and rarer these days. And your movie, too, is original. And that’s amazing that we both got these big theatrical opportunities for original ideas.

“That part of me almost … I’m like, ‘Oh no, if we do a Barbie 2, then we just,’ … I don’t know. But at the same time, I would do anything to be back on that set. And I’d do anything to be on set with Greta again and Ryan again and playing Barbie again. Like, playing Barbie is the best. It’s just so joyful. So it’s not ‘no.’ Not no, but also, it would take a lot for it to … live up to it.”
