Embarrassing moment Margot Robbie SNUBS red carpet pest at the Babylon premiere in Sydney: ‘He made a beeline for her and she walked away’
But there was unfortunately one guest on the red carpet whose presence was not welcome: notorious celebrity chaser Nasser Sultan.
The former Married At First Sight star, 55, was caught on camera trying – and failing miserably – to get the 32-year-old Oscar nominee’s attention.
This is the embarrassing moment Hollywood actress Margot Robbie snubbed red carpet pest Nasser Sultan (left, in the white shirt) at the premiere of Babylon in Sydney on Monday
Footage obtained by Yahoo Lifestyle shows the former music promoter standing at the edge of the red carpet attempting to speak to Margot.
He approaches the Wolf of Wall Street star with a huge smile only to be left red-faced moments later when she walks past without even acknowledging him.
An onlooker said: ‘He made a beeline for her and stopped and said hello. He then looked confused as she kept walking towards fans with her bodyguards.’
The source added that Margot was focused on chatting to fans and posing for selfies with the people who had patiently lined up for hours to meet her.

Her encounter with Nasser aside, Margot was all smiles at the premiere and even waved to an old school friend who yelled out her embarrassing childhood nickname.
While she was speaking to entertainment reporter Justin Hill, one of her pals standing behind her yelled out, ‘Hey, maggot!’
‘Maggot’ was Margot’s nickname during school.

It appears to be a play on her first name, but also could be a reference to the fact she is a fan of the band Slipknot, whose fans are known as ‘maggots’.
Margot took the dig in her stride, turning to enthusiastically wave at her mates.
‘I saw my school friends. We have been friends since we were four years old,’ she told Justin, who later said on TikTok the moment was ‘lovely to see’.
