Margot Robbie on Tonya Harding: 'I'm On Her Side 100%'

Margot Robbie gets her close up on the cover of W magazine’s November 2017 issue.

Here’s what the 27-year-old actress had to share with the mag:

On Tonya Harding, who she plays in I, Tonya: “The more I became Tonya, the more I saw things from her point of view. I’m on her side 100 percent. I don’t think she did anything but be different from what the world wanted. There are cool misfits, and then there is Tonya. She didn’t fit in. And I love that.”

On preparing for the role of an Olympic ice skater: “I did four months of training, five days a week, four hours a day. On Christmas Eve, I was at the rink. And now I actually really miss it. I kept my ice skatesβ€”but I said goodbye to a whole world of pain that I didn’t realize came along with figure skating.”

On her Halloween plans: “Every Halloween I dress as a guy character because they are always the most fun. From Day One, I never got the Halloween slutty costumes. I went out as Jason from Friday the 13th, with my jumpsuit and machete. I was in New York that year, and it was snowing. I thought, Surely, everybody is going to cover up. But every other woman was in lingerie. My favorite costume, though, was James Franco’s character in Spring Breakers. I did my hair in cornrows, put on a Hawaiian shirt and a gold grille on my teeth. I nailed it! I’ve always dressed up as guy characters, so to think that guys are now trying to take on Harley because she’s the coolest and the craziestβ€”that’s pretty awesome.”

    So would Margo have someone break another actress’ leg for a part? Wtf is she talking about?

  • Pitysaurus_rex

    I don’t know, but I am going to be keeping an eye on any awards shows that she will be attending…don’t want to miss that action!

    Is she for real?

  • Casey C

    ummm yikes. she did not think that answer through at all. its one thing to find something about a character to be noble or whatever, in order to play them well, but to say you’re on her side and thats shes basically a misunderstood misfit?
    “I don’t think she did anything but be different from what the world wanted” no, she hindered prosecution and got banned for life.

  • Kelley

    will never understand why people side with attackers of any kind. tonya may have had a hard life, but that doesn’t give her license to set up another person to be attacked and harmed. margot, you sound a dumbass here. typical hollywood no sympathy where its warranted. gross. she’s not too bright is she?

  • Kelley

    real dumb

  • Effy

    Just wait for it… she’ll issue an apology tomorrow or in a few days saying she was misquoted or something along those lines.

  • Shell

    This will be her story until the film flops then she’ll change her tune either that or say she was misquoted.

  • 777

    She won’t, she’s lucky enough to make this stupid statement when everyone else is busy talking about Harvey Weinstein. No one noticed.
