Is there anything Barbie can’t do?
Some fans are calling “Barbie” star Margot Robbie “perfect” after a video resurfaced of her using sign language to chat with a deaf fan.
The clip – which was filmed at the London premiere of “Amsterdam” last year – showed a man handing Robbie a piece of paper, which appeared to be a sign language cheat sheet.
“For me?” the 33-year-old actress asked, before exclaiming, “I know it.”
Robbie, who has seemingly never spoken publicly about her ability to sign before, then gave her belongings to an aide before signing the alphabet.
She told the fan it was “nice to meet” him and the two proceeded to take a selfie together.
“i think its australian or british sign!!! that is so cool!!!!” one fan commented on the resurfaced clip, noting the “Suicide Squad” star wasn’t speaking American Sign Language as many initially thought.
“She was really MOTHERING. We have no choice but to STAN even harder for her,” someone else wrote, while a third chimed in, “she really took time to free her hands and communicate with a fan to make them seen. she’s so precious.”
Another fan commented, “so excited to seeing the world catch-up with my favorite producer in hollywood. actress, producer, business woman, incredible human being. she’s so much more than just harley quinn.”
Robbie has been making plenty of headlines over the past few months for the epic, dolled-up looks she’s been wearing on red carpets to promote “Barbie” across the world.
The Greta Gerwig-helmed film is also breaking records. The movie, which just hit theaters on July 21, has already racked up $162 million, making it the biggest debut ever for a film directed by a woman, per Variety.
Issa Rae, Hari Nef, Emma Mackey, Dua Lipa, Sharon Rooney, Ana Cruz Kayne, Alexandra Shipp and Kate McKinnon are among the actresses who help bring the Mattel icon to life as Robbie’s fellow Barbies, with Ryan Gosling as Ken.
“This is going to sound stupid, but I really didn’t even think about playing Barbie until years into developing the project,” Robbie, who also produced the film, told Vogue in a cover story published in May.

“It wasn’t that I ever wanted to play Barbie, or dreamt of being Barbie, or anything like that,” she went on.
The “Wolf of Wall Street” star admitted that she can’t recall whether she even owned a Barbie doll growing up.
“I don’t think I did,” she said. “I know my cousin had a bunch of Barbies, and I’d go to her house.”
The Oscar nominee — who posed on the magazine cover in a pink satin Versace gown — also made it clear that the doll “should never be sexy.”
“I’m like, OK, she’s a doll. She’s a plastic doll. She doesn’t have organs. If she doesn’t have organs, she doesn’t have reproductive organs,” Robbie explained.
She went on to note that the character likely wouldn’t “feel sexual desire.”
“She is sexualized. But she should never be sexy. People can project sex onto her,” the “Bombshell” star continued.
“Yes, she can wear a short skirt, but because it’s fun and pink. Not because she wanted you to see her butt.”
