It's easy to be in awe of Margot Robbie. At the young age of 25 (almost 26, as of July 2), the Australian actress has worked with such incredible talent as Martin Scorcese, Leonardo DiCaprio, Will Smith, and as of her latest movie "The Legend Of Tarzan," director David Yates — who you might know best as the director of several "Harry Potter" films.
But like all of us, Robbie had an "awkward phase." Of course, her awkward phase was much more glamorous than many of ours were (ask me about the two belts I wore in middle school because I thought "Final Fantasy" characters were the cutting edge of fashion), but it also involved copious amounts of "Harry Potter" reading. Which probably made being on set with Yates pretty exciting, I bet.
Seriously, just imagine this beautiful dork being told she gets to work with the guy that directed Daniel Radcliffe in four different movies. Imagine her face. (Also imagine it being told she gets to be the first ever actress to play Harley Quinn on screen, because something tells me this 'lil nerd would be into that too):
The image, which she told Jimmy Kimmel was taken on her thirteenth birthday, is simply incredible.
"I'm drinking a cup of tea. I'm in bed. I'm clearly really enjoying myself, reading 'Harry Potter,'" the actress explained. "I have braces, which I had for two years. I was really into slicking my hair back— God knows why — and I'm wearing glasses, which I didn't actually need."
"I have 20/20 vision and I lied to get glasses so I could look like Harry Potter," she clarified. "They're not even cool ones. They're, like, ugly glasses. I went to the optometrist and I was like, 'I can't see that. Ow! My eyes hurt!'" she said. "My mom's like, 'Do you really need glasses?' I was like, 'Yes, I do!'"
Okay, but Margot, we still have so many questions. What house do you identify as? Which subject do you think would be your favorite? Which Quidditch position would you want to play? Have you sorted yourself into Ilvermorny yet? You can't just leave it at "I'm a 'Harry Potter' fan" and walk away, Margot! You are one of us. Embrace your bespectacled past.
