Margot Robbie b-tch slapped Alexander Skarsgård during a sex scene
In what has become my favorite headline of the day, director David Yates talked to Entertainment Weekly about casting Margot Robbie as Jane in Legend of Tarzan. He keeps insisting that she’s the “anti-damsel” and that she can “take care of herself”. Whatever, dude. Trailers one and two make her look like a human blowup doll. But I digress.
Robbie was shooting a sex scene with Skarsgård, when Yates asked her to slap her co-star.
“They’re doing this love scene together, and I said [to Robbie], ‘Just slap Alex while you’re making love, just kind of give him a punch,’” Yates explains. “It was sort of an earthy, sensual moment of her enjoying sex with Alex, and the only bruise he picked up during the entire shoot was probably that punch from Margot. Which says a lot about her feistiness.”
Robbie famously smacked Leonardo DiCaprio in the face at The Wolf of Wall Street audition. There’s also a story about how she got the call to come in and test for Focus while she was backpacking in Croatia. She flew to New York that night on a whirlwind trip, and 50 hours later, was waiting for Will Smith. Who was late.
According to Robbie, “He comes in and says, ‘Sorry I’m late, I was coming from Queens.’ And I look at Will and I was like, ‘Yeah? Well, I just came from an island off Croatia and I’m here on time.’”
That’s when I fell in love with this b-tch. Is it an Aussie thing? I have no idea. But hearing about her b-tch slapping A-list movie stars makes me like her even more.
God, I can't wait for Suicide Squad.
