  • Can I take my jacket off?

  • Go ahead.

  • Go ahead.

  • Oh, my God.

  • Um, I've never eaten anything so spicy in my life.

  • Yeah.

  • Hey, what's going on?

  • Everybody For first we feast on Shaun Evans and you're watching hot ones.

  • It's the show with hot questions and even hotter wings.

  • Margot Robbie.

  • Welcome to the show.

  • Thanks for having me.

  • What's your head space?

  • Like going into So it's good.

  • Um, I have the palate of a four year old and grew up eating mashed potato, so my tolerance with spicy food is extremely limited.

  • Ha.

  • Okay.

  • It's very nice of you to do this with me, by the way.

  • Thank you.

  • I think it's only fair I meet you halfway on this.

  • You know, I could do that.

  • I find that very spicy, actually.

  • I'm getting found that I think what?

  • We're in for it today.

  • So the last suicide squad movie.

  • I understand that you had to learn how to hold your breath underwater for five minutes.

  • You have to learn how to do anything similarly daunting for this role in Birds of Prey.

  • I spent a lot of the movie on roller skates, and we actually have a big scene on a moving carousel.

  • And then I'm behind a car and, like, it's just really hard to do all that on wheels.

  • Um, so that was very actually very challenging.

  • But yet the holding my birthday, that's like a fun party trick.

  • Now, this is just a nice thing to be able to say, like, Hey, I can hold my breath for five minutes, just like a free diver, teach you how to do that.

  • You would be able to do it too, if you haven't.

  • Oh, yeah, if you like, sat with him, he would just because he teaches you, you know how to take a big breath and expand to die for him and all that kind of stuff.

  • Really.

  • The most important thing he teaches you is what happens when your body is deprived of oxygen and then once you know it's not that scary when it starts happening.

  • So he's like, So you'll have convulsions when you start getting to this point and then you've got another, like, 30 40 seconds after that.

  • So just ride out the convulsions, then they'll get worse and then, like, this will happen.

  • And then, like when you come up goto perch heard your body of carbon monoxide, and some people might pass out like this and look like this, but you'll be fine once you know all that when you like underwater and you're, you know, three and 1/2 minutes or something and you start having convulsions.

  • You're, like, good gonna rats out for another minute like it's just nice to know.

  • Now show me especially manageable.

  • Well, yeah, that's definitely spicy.

  • I feel that.

  • Yep.

  • We're getting towards, like, the threshold of what I've ever eaten.

  • Perform.

  • I'm not, um I was actually just in Treblinka, and so I feel like I did broaden my horizons as faras spice and Curries.

  • But this is a really Yeah, and we're on number two.

  • I'm scared.

  • So is someone with over 100,000 on red work emails.

  • I find it very impressive that you're able to wear multiple hats is not only the lead star but also a producer on films like Eitan Young, Birds of Prey.

  • What's a more nerve wracking part of the filmmaking experience for producer?

  • Is it getting talent on board?

  • Are watching the first week box office numbers rolling?

  • Uh, can I start drinking?

  • Would.

  • And of course, no time living on that.

  • My lips are burning already, Um, most at the most, the most nerve wracking, probably the box office, because at that point, you can't do anything anymore.

  • You've kind of like I mean, you can kind of see that your marketing strategy a little bit, but really does not like you can do.

  • And you just hope that people like it.

  • And you and so many people have spent so much time on something that you just want people to like it or even see it hotter again.

  • Has anyone ever being this pathetic at number three, you know, I mean, I can tell.

  • I can tell that you have a sensitive palate, Margo, but it's not just my mouth is my lips that I like, but I think that the measure of it all is like.

  • Can you keep it going?

  • Yeah, that's really what it is as as as weak as I am with spice tolerance, I am strong and headed tive determination says okay.

  • And I'm gonna save the milk toe later toe like I'm really desperate.

  • Strategic, Not my strategy.

  • So before your career in film, I know that you worked as a sandwich artist at Subway.

  • I did.

  • What do you think was one of the more bizarre sandwiches that you ever made from behind the counter?

  • Probably the ones I made for myself because I wanted to try every different variation.

  • I think I was really good in it, because I, you know, it would really spread everything out to the edge is evenly the right amount of everything.

  • Seriously, Yeah.

  • And now when I go to subway and someone just kind of throws it on right in the middle, that puts a ton of source there, like I just It kills me like I actually don't go that often anymore, because I watched them make it badly and I'm upset.

  • Do you share Harley Quinn's obsession with egg sandwiches?

  • I'm allergic to chicken egg whites, so I love egg sandwiches, but they give me migraine to fight.

  • So when we did the scene, they actually make them with duck eggs.

  • And, um, it's very delicious.

  • But yes, I do love egg sandwiches when I can eat.

  • And finally, is it true that you once crushed £4 of pasta toe?

  • Wanna bowlin A's eating competition?

  • We're going to really done your research.

  • Yes, I am.

  • Yes.

  • I once ate £4 of spaghetti Bolognese in an hour.

  • That was the very first time frame that that made it more difficult.

  • Otherwise, I don't know how much I could've beaten.

  • Probably not that much more.

  • Because I was, um I was really sick.

  • It was It was a lot of speaking.

  • It was like a bucket of spaghetti.

  • But you want, But I won was won by, like, 300 grams or something.

  • I can't remember what exactly, but it was a really important moment of my life.

  • I'll never forget everything.

  • Like the mustard.

  • It's like but the scotch bonnet really, really hot.

  • Okay, we've now hit the stage by this is uncharted territory.

  • I'm try to territory.

  • I think this is the hardest thing I've ever eaten.

  • My lad to hold water in my now.

  • Sure a minute.

  • Well, especially for this one.

  • Because we have a nice long wind up on this one, Margo.

  • So as we've touched on your deeply involved in this film, I know that it's your baby.

  • And it was important to you to give Harley Quinn Ah, girl squad.

  • Well, guess what?

  • In anticipation of this interview, we have reached out to some of your co stars to get the inside baseball on birds of prey directly from the source.

  • So here they are.

  • The birds up first way have journeys.

  • Mullet Bell with the question for Margo Margo.

  • For me, the most challenging thing about shooting birds of prey and playing black Neri was obviously the stunts those kicks kicked my ass.

  • Who was the most challenging part for you in playing Harley?

  • Um my now store on fire.

  • I can barely concentrate.

  • The most challenging part of playing Holly waas Um uh, maybe, um, the sun stuff was really hard.

  • I mean, we had Thio.

  • I think I have to have no, no go for so far.

  • Right up next.

  • Okay, we have Mary Elizabeth Winstead, and she has a question for you, Margot.

  • Hey, Margo.

  • So I've heard that you're kind of obsessed with tattoos.

  • So, out of all of Harley's many tattoos, do you have a favorite?

  • And why haven't you given me a tattoo yet?

  • Oh, that's a very good question.

  • I actually do you have a favorite tattoo.

  • So you don't really You don't see it in this movie because where the costumes like that in suicide scored one, you could probably see, like, a little peek of it.

  • But on her right hip, she has a dolphin jumping over a rainbow.

  • And I love that tattoo because I thought that Toe Holly in Queens l getting a tattoo seemed super rebellious.

  • And she had no idea, obviously what her life would lead and at, like, 15 she probably thought, like the most rebellious hot coal.

  • But cool tattoo was this dolphin jumping over ring.

  • But right there on him, because that would be kind of sexy.

  • And that just seemed like something that 15 year old Helene Quenzel would do.

  • So that was always my favorite because it felt like there was a bit of history with All right, we have one more for you.

  • L A J Hey, Margo.

  • One of my favorite things about Cassandra Kane was decorating her cast.

  • So I have a question for you.

  • If you were hardly what would you draw on her cast?

  • Uh, I would I would.

  • What number were up to you, by the way?

  • We're almost halfway next morning.

  • We're at the halfway mark.

  • Um, I would probably I mean, if I was Holly and I was drawing on Cassandra Kane's cost, I'd probably write a whole bunch of rude woods and probably do a bunch of dicks.

  • So something inappropriate to put on the child's cost because Holly's not always very pret.

  • All right, Margo, I know which one's this one.

  • Low scaly entails row halfway mark already like halfway.

  • And you know what, Margo?

  • Here at the halfway mark, we do this recurring segment called.

  • Explain that, Graham.

  • We do a deep dive on our guest instagram, so we'll pump the picture.

  • You just tell us the bigger story.

  • That's me right now trying to eat these wings.

  • Do you remember the internal dialogue here?

  • It looks like you're suffering.

  • I mean, I'm guessing the Rangers weren't doing well at that particular point in time.

  • I'm guessing the other team probably just scored or got past us, and you played on right wing for, like, an amateur hockey team.

  • When you move to the Yeah, I didn't know how to ice skate at that point.

  • There's no there's no ice in Australia, so I mean, there is.

  • But there wasn't where I grew up in.

  • I always wanted to play ice hockey because I love the Mighty Ducks when I was little.

  • And, um, I couldn't go play ice hockey because it was like an hour away and was on Saturdays.
