Margot Robbie: I found a human foot

AUSTRALIAN superstar Margot Robbie has revealed a shocking moment when she discovered a human foot on a beach.

The 27-year-old spoke to the Hollywood Reporter about the "craziest" thing that had happened to her during a discussion with celebrities Bryan Cranston, Armie Hammer, Robert Pattinson, Diane Kruger and Octavia Spencer.


"I recently did a film, and the director asked if everyone could write down the craziest thing that has happened to them in their lives. I had spent two months with this group of people, probably about 60 people, and everyone seems super normal," she said.

"And then everyone had to write down the craziest thing that happened to them, and it was released on the last day, and you had to guess whose story matched up with who. It just reminded me that fascinating people are everywhere. Everywhere. Someone had been engaged to the princess of Zanzibar. Someone else had been in a plane crash where only 10 people survived. It just reminds you there are fascinating stories everywhere. Everyone has a story.

"I once found - and no one guessed that this was me - I found a human foot on the beach in Nicaragua. Just a little souvenir."

The usually-private Robbie also revealed more details about how she dealt with conflict.

"I normally avoid conflict at all costs. I haven't worked with an actor whom I've despised, but I have worked with someone on the production side who - I didn't appreciate the way they spoke about me in front of groups," she told the publication.

"It took me a couple of months, but I plucked up the courage and pulled him aside and said, 'You're discrediting what I do when you speak to me like that.' He was really great about it.

"Beyond that, I am kind of a crazy person when I prep. I do timelines and backstories, I work with a dialect coach, a movement coach and an acting coach. I do a lot before so I can throw it out the window when I get on set.

"But if I hadn't done the work before, I'd be too scared."

Robbie also revealed she had turned down roles for some very odd reasons.

"I've turned down roles because - amongst other things, but it did factor in my decision - of wearing a corset for six months. I just can't do that," she added.
