Margot appeared on the popular Netflix series Hot Ones. The object is to eat a chicken wing gauntlet wherein the spice factor increases tenfold with each new wing.

Margot was cleaning bones all the way to the finish line!

3. Her Harley Quinn character is always lurking just beneath the surface.

During an interview, Margot said that she often catches herself making Harley Quinn's expressions and even doing her voice at inappropriate times.

Margot explained that as soon as filming for BOP wrapped, she had already begun screening for the upcoming Suicide Squad reboot.

4. Margot has a history of tattooing her friends.

Margot is not a certified tattoo artist. In fact, according to her, she can barely draw. Yet for some reason, friends and co-workers still line up in droves to be tatted-up by Margot.

I like to think I'd say no if she asked me, but I know I'm not that strong...

5. She's a real-life woman on a wire.

Warner Bros. Pictures

When she was a very young girl, Margot began studying the circus arts. By the time she was eight years old, she had earned herself a trapeze certificate.

You can see her skills on full display in Suicide Squad.

6. Margot is a closet metal-head.

During an appearance on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, Margot seemed absolutely giddy over meeting Metallica. She went on to explain how when she was a child, she went through a serious heavy metal phase.

According to her, Slipknot is the best band she's ever seen in concert.

7. She can hold her breath for a seriously long time.

In order to film the underwater scene in Suicide Squad, Margot had to learn to hold her breath for an astonishing five minutes!

She explained that the crew brought in a master free-diver to teach her the proper techniques.

8. She's a huge hockey fan.

When Margot first came to the U.S., she was living in New York.

As a result, she's a die-hard New York Rangers fan and attends as many games as she can. But her love of hockey actually started at a much younger age.

One of Margot's favorite movies as a child was *The Mighty Ducks*. From the time she was a little girl, she had always wanted to play ice hockey.

Margot and her friends even dressed up as The Mighty Ducks for Halloween!

Can you imagine if they rebooted the franchise, only it was an all-girls hockey team and Margot was their Coach, Bombay?

Make it happen, Hollywood!

9. Yes, Margot does actually know how to surf.

I feel like this is one of those stereotypical questions that gets thrown at Aussies a lot. However, in Margot's case, it's 100% true!

She learned as a young girl and still hits the waves whenever she can.

10. She was actually skating in *I, Tonya*.

For her role as Tonya Harding, Margot laced up her skates and set to work.

She trained for three months to allow her body to get into the proper shape, and to learn the required skills.

11. Margot understands the power of liquid courage.

Paramount Studios

While filming The Wolf of Wall Street, Margot was understandably nervous about her love scenes with Leo.

To help put herself in the right frame of mind, Margot downed three heaping shots of tequila!

She also assaulted Leonardo DiCaprio during her reading for *The Wolf Of Wall Street*.

Margot recalls how the pair were running a fight scene.

Apparently, she got so caught up in the moment that instead of delivering her line, she walked across the room and slapped Leo in the face!

Fortunately, both he and director Martin Scorcese loved her improvisation.

12. Margot's celebrity crush has a Harley Quinn connection.

Margot has a thing for The Joker! But not the Jared Leto version (sorry, Jared). She's all about Joaquin Phoenix!

Honestly, it would be AMAZING to see Margot Robbie and Joaquin Phoenix star alongside one another in a movie!

If Harley Quinn and Arthur Fleck somehow found their way to one another, I wouldn't be mad.

Who knows, maybe we'll see it happen in the upcoming Flashpoint movie?

(This probably won't happen at all, but it's nice to dream.)

13. She was given a very surprising gift by her *Suicide Squad* co-star, Jared Leto.

Jared Leto is a renowned method actor. In professional circles, that's a polite way of saying that he's a little unhinged.

He gifted Margot a live rat in a box, which Margot named Rat-Rat.

14. She is no stranger to the dark side of the entertainment world.

When speaking about her decision to become Harley Quinn, she said:

“You’re about to be in a comic book film; now here’s the worst-case scenario of how big and scary it can get.”

"There’s just all this stuff you learn along the way, like, when you get those death threats, it’s [smart] to have a security team do a background check on whoever sent them to see if there is any past history of violence because you’ll need to know whether you need security to go to certain events."

"And every time you do a background check, it’s going to cost $2,000, so take that into consideration when you’re getting yourself into this."

15. She hates being described as a "bombshell."

"I hate that word. I hate it—so much. I feel like a brat saying that because there are worse things, but I’m not a bombshell. I’m not someone who walks in a room and the record stops and people turn like, ‘Look at that woman.’ That doesn’t happen."

"People who know me, if they had to sum me up in one word I don’t know what that word would be, but I’m certain it would not be bombshell.”

I don't blame her, to be honest!

It must get annoying when that's the only thing people think about you!

16. Her mother and father aren't together anymore.

Her mother is a physiotherapist, and she actually doesn't enjoy talking about her father, who left when Robbie was five.

“Just because it’s hard to briefly mention without it sounding like ‘My dad’s awful and. . . .’ That whole thing. But yes, Mum and Dad split up."

17. She was hesitant to take the main lead in *I,Tonya*.

“It’s a big step, playing a lead, a step I’ve been hesitant to make. All the weight of the film rests on your shoulders. And if it doesn’t work? It’s that much harder for you to get a lead role again – especially if you’re a woman.”

18. She is working very hard to change Hollywood, and media outlets' perception of her.

Instagram | @margotrobbie

She is doing it purposely to try and move from breakout roles that focused on her body to putting energy into her producing and bigger parts that showcase her talent.

Good for her!

19. When she was little, she wanted to be a magician.

Instagram | @margotrobbie

"When I was little, I thought I was going to be a magician. I had tricks and thought they were genius. I didn’t decide, ‘I’m going to be an actress.’ I didn’t know that was a job."

"I thought that only happened to people born in Hollywood."

"But I put on shows at home, and I used to watch videos over and over and knew them by heart. I did drama at school and was in all the plays just because I liked doing it."

20. People in Australia aren't as happy about her success as people in the United States are.

Instagram | @margotrobbie

It's not that they don't want her to succeed, it's just that she shouldn't succeed more than others.

"There’s a thing in Australia called tall-poppy syndrome. Have you heard of it? It’s a pretty prevalent thing—they even teach it in school."

She continued:

Instagram | @margotrobbie

"Poppies are tall flowers, but they don’t grow taller than the rest of the flowers, so there’s a mentality in Australia where people are really happy for you to do well; you just can’t do better than everyone else or they will cut you down to size."

21. Producer Jerry Weintraub compared her to one of the biggest Hollywood stars of all time.

“When I think of Margot Robbie, a single word comes to mind, Audrey Hepburn.”

Honestly, the two actresses have tons of class and elegance, so it actually makes a ton of sense to me!
