Margot Robbie looks completely different on the set of her new film

Margot Robbie’s Byron Bay wedding last month is long behind her, as she’s already on set for her next film, I, Tonya.

Margot plays the lead role in a biopic about disgraced former American figure skater Tonya Harding, and she’s undergone a pretty insane transformation.

The 26-year-old was spotted on set in the US city of Atlanta this week with frizzy hair and a very eighties outfit, including high-waisted mum jeans. Also, a double chin, chubby cheeks and a massive upper body. Behold, the magic of Hollywood!

Seriously though, it’s like she’s wearing a friggin’ hulk suit under her jumper.

In case you're wondering, this is what the real Tonya looked like in the era the movie is set.

The hair and make-up departments nailed it.

If you don’t know the story of Tonya Harding, it’s pretty insane. She was a champion figure skater who apparently hated her rival Nancy Kerrigan so much that in 1994, she and her husband hired a hitman to break Nancy’s leg. For real! Except the hit didn’t work, and Tonya still had to compete against Nancy in the Norway Olympics.

As karma would have it, Nancy absolutely slayed her, winning silver while Tonya came eighth. Tonya’s husband, the hit man and other men involved in the crime served prison time while Tonya was banned from the sport for life.

I, Tonya stars Margot and will be released in 2018.
