Margot Robbie And Jennifer Lawrence Are Both In Talks To Play Sharon Tate

Two of Hollywood's most in-demand actresses are going head-to-head for a role in Tarantino's much-hyped film about the Manson family and the murder of Sharon Tate. Oscar-winner Jennifer Lawrence and Suicide Squad star Margot Robbie are said to be the film director's two choices for the role of up-and-coming screen star Sharon, who was tragically killed along with four friends at her home in 1969.

Both actresses are highly accomplished in their fields, Lawrence is currently the highest paid female actress in Hollywood for the second year in a row and Robbie joined the likes of Elle Fanning and Evan Rachel Wood on Forbes '30 Under 30' list. Speaking about the potential casting choices for Sharon, her sister Debra revealed to TMZ that she has already picked her choice, commenting; "They're both extremely accomplished actresses, but I would have to say, my pick would be Margot simply because of her physical beauty, and the way she carries herself is similar to that of Sharon," Tate told the website. "I don't think as much about Jennifer Lawrence," she went on. "Not that I have anything against her but she just – I don't know – she's not pretty enough to play Sharon. That's a horrible thing to say, but you know, I have my standards."

No further details have been released on the potential plot or who could potentially play Roman Polanski, the famed director and Tate's husband, but despite not being involved in the film, we're sure Tate's family will be passing comment on those decisions as well.
