‘Schitt’s Creek’ star Annie Murphy was once labelled as a cheap version of Margot Robbie.
The 36-year-old actress, who portrayed Alexis Rose in the CBC sitcom, has shared a troll who compared her to the bombshell Aussie actress if she was bought on the budget store Wish.
“I was told by a man on the internet that I look like Margot Robbie if she was ordered from Wish.com,” she told Us Weekly magazine, reports aceshowbiz.com.
What’s more, she’s often been stopped by fans of the show on the street who tell her she looks like the actress that plays Alexis. She said, “The most common things fans ask me is, ‘Has anyone told you that you kind of look like that girl from Schitt’s Creek?'”
The Emmy-winning star also said she has Hollywood actress Kate Winslet‘s phone number.
Annie Murphy told the publication: “The most starstruck I’ve been was meeting Kate Winslet. I asked her for her number. She’s the most famous person in my contacts.”
Meanwhile, the actress previously said that she cried “12 times a day” before being diagnosed with depression.
Annie Murphy said how she struggled during the pandemic after moving back into her family home in Canada when she went for a planned vacation and filming on the new series “Kevin Can F*** Himself” was delayed.
She told The Zoe Report, “My mom was like, ‘You’re crying 12 times a day hysterically, to the point where your teeth are chattering. That’s not normal.’ “
She went to a therapist, who diagnosed her with depression, and she admitted she was worried about what people would think if they knew.
Annie added, “I was like, ‘Damn it, I’m depressed.’ Urgh…. A lot of people are going to think that I sound like I’m playing a tiny violin for myself.”
“‘Oh, you’re rich and famous. Why the f*** are you sad? You have nothing to be sad about.’ But I’m not going to post photos of me covered in my own snot, lying on the floor, unable to get up. I don’t want people to have to see that.”
Annie Murphy said she wasn’t sure if she would have “been able to do (her) job” if filming on “Kevin Can F*** Himself” had started as planned.
She explained, “(And) as excited as I was to get this huge part on (the show), I do not think if I had gone to work when I was supposed to go to work, I would have been able to do my job.”
Now, Annie Murphy is helped by regular therapy and anti-depressants and she admitted they have saved her life. She said, “I do not cry every single day on the floor 12 times… I am able to focus on other things in my life.”
“Now, honestly, if a friend’s like, ‘I’m having a really hard time,’ I’m like, ‘Get on drugs. Get on drugs!’ You don’t have to be on drugs for the whole time, but they truly, truly saved my life in the sense that I was not a functional human being and I was able to be a functional human being.”
