In a new interview with CinemaBlend, the 33-year-old revealed that she's known for a while that her feet were getting a lot of attention online.

"I had started working... and I hadn’t googled myself before, and so I wrote in 'Margot Robbie' ... and before I finished writing in 'Robbie,' 'Margot Robbie Feet' came up. And I was like 'Margot Robbie Feet?' That’s weird'" the Oscar-nominated actor shared.

"I clicked on it and realized that there was, you know like, pictures zoomed in of my feet, and people were writing about it. Someone made a video compilation of footage of my feet," the Australian continued. "And I was like, 'Oh wow! This is a thing.' I didn’t realize!"

And how does she really feel about the obsession with her feet?

As many of her most famous films actually feature scenes in which her feet are prominently placed, such as The Wolf of Wall Street and Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, she believes they "only encouraged this notion."

However, it apparently doesn't bother her.

"I have to say, I’m really flattered that people are excited about my feet," she said.

"I think that's lovely. I am, genuinely. I don't feel weird about it. I am actually like, 'Well, that's nice.'"

Robbie's co-star Ryan Gosling (42) also took part in the interview, and found humor in the idea.

"To Margot's feet!" he toasted at the end of the chat.

For fans, Margot's feet are featured prominently throughout Barbie the movie, which is now open in theaters everywhere.
