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 skates—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 craziest—that’s pretty awesome.”

    Apology in 3.2.1….

  • Lee

    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!

  • 777

    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

  • 777

    seriously

  • 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.

  • Ausangel01

    This is when your P.R managers step in to clarify your idiotic comment.
