The moment comes when Robbie admits she fantasizes about getting some sort of joint-living fantasy to share with her husband, Tom Acklery, and her friends and business partners Josey McNamara and Sophia Kerr. “We’ll be like a cult! ” the 28-year-old actress explains before revealing that she has one very specific fantasy for a living situation, as recounted by Vogue writer Irina Aleksander: "When they looked at one property, Robbie asked if she could have a slide built connecting her bedroom to the pool. “I think that just sums up the person that she is,” adds Kerr, her friend. “She will buy a compound on a whim, so that her close friends could live near her and so that she can wake up and slide into the pool.
With a vibe reminiscent of later Disney Channel Original Movies, but actually released in theaters, Blank Check follows an 11-year-old named Preston Waters who inadvertently comes into $1 million and promptly decides to live as many 11-year-old's fantasies as one can buy for that amount, including the purchase of a castle-themed home that includes, you guessed it, a waterslide connected to his bedroom… or maybe his office. (Turns out when doing research on this film there's a lot of weird things you misremember—like the fact that Preston has a weird quasiromantic storyline with a full-grown woman. ) Whatever the case, the film may have launched the notion of the bedroom waterslide into the collective consciousness of millennials.
