10 awesome things you didn’t know about Margot Robbie

(Even if you DO already know some of these things, they’re still totally rad.)

By Lorna Gray

  1. She once dressed up as James Franco in Spring Breakers. We could stop this list right now as this alone is ridiculously awesome…

  1. Her nickname is Maggot’. It started as an affectionate family pet name and caught on. We're unsure whether she likes it or not but we're going to go ahead and say she does. Because Margot Robbie is awesome.

  1. She got her role in The Wolf of Wall Street by slapping Leonardo DiCaprio across the face in her audition. It wasn’t in the script…

She said of the incident: “I’m thinking, ‘You just hit Leonardo DiCaprio in the face. They’re going to arrest you because that’s assault. You’re definitely never going to work again, that’s for sure. They’ll probably sue you as well in case there’s a bruise on his face and he needs to film something else.’ And then all of a sudden Marty and Leo just burst out laughing. Marty says, ‘That was great!’ Leo’s like, ‘Hit me again!’”

  1. She was raised on her grandparents’ farm on the Gold Coast.

  1. Speaking of her grandparents… they still haven’t seen The Wolf of Wall Street. Margot’s mum Sarrie recently revealed: “for the grandparents, no, we decided it probably wouldn't be the best thing for them to see.” Lols.

  1. Margot worked at Subway and seriously, can you imagine being served by her?! She apparently makes a mean BLT…

  1. She didn’t even have to audition for her upcoming role as Harley Quinn in Suicide Squad. She was SO perfect for the role, they offered it to her outright.

  1. Margot turned down a LOT of money doing a Playboy cover, stating that she will only take her clothes off for artistic purposes.

  1. She took three shots of tequila “at like nine in the morning” before filming her first sex scene with Leo. We certainly wouldn’t need the alcohol when pretend-boning Leo but hey… How Jennifer Lawrence of her!

  1. If she wasn’t an actress, she’d be a trapeze artist. When she was eight years old, Margot was sent by her mother to a circus school to attend a trapeze programme – she has a certificate and everything. Maybe that explains this:
