Whoops! Margot Robbie has been outed as a closet Harry Potter fan, and she was so into the book series as a teen she even lied to get glasses so she could look like her hero. You’ve got to see her most embarrassing and awkward photo as her fictional hero.
As if there wasn’t already enough to love about the gorgeous and talented Margot Robbie, 25, the Suicide Squad star has just shared that she’s the world’s number one Harry Potter fan, and made the big reveal thanks to a super geeked out teenage photo she shared with Jimmy Kimmel, 48, on June 28.
Margot had stopped by the show to promote her upcoming Tarzan film and Jimmy just couldn’t help himself when it came to sharing the most adorkable photo of the now stunning Aussie actress.”I don’t think I’d even recognize you,” Jimmy said as he revealed a giant pic of a young Margot sitting in bed reading Harry Potter to her heart’s content.
“Literally the most embarrassing photo of my whole life,” she described the photo while cracking up with laughter. She said the pic was taken on her 13th birthday, but she was totally in her element as a dorky teen. “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.”
“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. They’re not even cool ones. They’re, like, ugly glasses.” Margot even lied to her parents in order to get them! “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!'” What a cutie!
HollywoodLifers, are you a big Harry Potter fan like Margot? Would you ever lie to get glasses to look like him?
