(CNN) -- It looks like the sequel to the "Barbie" movie won't be coming that soon, if at all... Although its director Greta Gerwig doesn't completely rule it out.

"I mean, right now we're at zero," Gerwig told Entertainment Tonight on the red carpet at the Gotham Awards on Monday when asked if a sequel is on the way.

The Oscar-nominated director admitted she's "exhausted" right now, but refrained from giving a resounding "no" to a potential sequel.

"Life is long," he added. "You never know."

Margot Robbie, the film's producer and star of the iconic Mattel doll, also spoke about rumors that there will be another "Barbie" movie. "We put everything into this one," he told the Associated Press earlier this month.

"We didn't build it to be a trilogy or anything," Robbie said, adding, "Greta put everything into this movie, so I can't imagine what would be next."

Robbie plays the lead role of "Barbie" alongside Ryan Gosling as Ken. The story follows Barbie as she goes through an existential crisis in Barbieland.

It's no surprise that moviegoers around the world are excited about the possibility of a sequel, given how hugely successful the film was when it was released in July.

According to Warner Bros.'s official estimates, the blockbuster grossed $1.030 billion at the global box office in the first few weeks of its release, making Gerwig the first female director with a $1 billion film. ("Barbie" was distributed by Warner Bros., owned by CNN's parent company, Warner Bros. Discovery.)

"It's been an amazing year," Gerwig said Monday. "You always expect things to connect and you believe in them, but this has exceeded everything I could have anticipated."
