It’s a popular fact that many adults still sleep with their childhood stuffed animals. Among them is none other than Margot Robbie.
On a recent episode of W magazine’s podcast Five Things With Lynn Hirschberg, Robbie revealed that she still sleeps with her stuffed rabbit. It’s called Bunny and it causes a bit of a rift at home, she says.
“[My husband] always throws Bunny out of the bed because he obviously thinks it’s a tad ridiculous that I still sleep with Bunny. Maybe he’s a little jealous that Bunny always gets priority place in the bed. He thinks I’m asleep and he’ll throw Bunny out of the bed and I get so cross with him”, she says.
To Robbie’s husband, sleeping with stuffed animals is not considered ridiculous by many experts. It’s even a stress reliever and helps people who travel a lot to have a piece of home with them.
So, don’t feel weird when your loved one still loves their plushie. Yes, it can be surprising for an adult, but it doesn’t mean that they are crazy. And trying to remove the plushie by “throwing” it away, will cause rifts. So, be more accepting and that may actually work in your favor and help the person to slowly “grow out” of it.
