The Margot Corner
- margoterobbie.net -

Margot is a highly desired cover girl these days, and following her Wonderland Magazine spread, she’s now covering the upcoming November issue of W Magazine! The cover has already been released, and can be seen in our gallery. The spread comes with a brand new – and great – interview, which you can read below. She was photographed by Craig McDean, and we already have the first outtakes of the photoshoot! Find links and previews below.

When Margot Robbie read the script for I, Tonya, a biopic of the notorious ice skater Tonya Harding, she assumed the story was complete fiction. “I thought the writer was so quirky and crazy to come up with this stuff,” she told me, still looking a bit astonished by the strange twists in Harding’s life. (In 1994, the skater was famously implicated in a plot to take down her nemesis Nancy Kerrigan after a man attacked Kerrigan with a baton.) We were on location for the W shoot in Snug Harbor, a bucolic Staten Island enclave founded in the early 1800s as a haven for old sailors. There was something appealingly run-down and shabby about the setting, but Robbie, who is 27, is a glow-y girl: With blond hair and an engaged manner, she can’t help but shine.

Which is why it is so remarkable that Robbie was able to completely disappear into Harding’s decidedly darker persona. A self-described redneck from Oregon, Harding was the antithesis of the traditional superstar figure skater. She was rough and flashy, and her skating was powerful and athletic rather than graceful and balletic. Harding’s ex-husband, Jeff Gillooly, and her bodyguard, Shawn Eckardt, were ultimately charged with criminal conspiracy to commit assault. While Kerrigan recovered from her injuries in time to compete in the ’94 Olympics, the incident propelled Harding to tabloid infamy and effectively ended her skating career.

“I was 4 years old and living in Australia at the time,” Robbie said. “The news did reach Australia, but I didn’t know about it.”
Riveted by the script, Robbie immediately agreed to star in and produce the film—despite that fact that she had never figure skated in her life. “I did four months of training, five days a week, four hours a day,” she recalled. “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.”

Not only did Robbie have to be believable on the ice, she also had to take on the even more difficult challenge of assuming Harding’s accent and physique. “Once I put on the wig, which altered my hairline, and bleached my eyebrows, I started to see Tonya,” Robbie said. “The hardest part was losing my natural laugh. It needed to be Tonya’s laugh. I couldn’t do a triple axel like Tonya, but I was able to master her laugh.”

Harding’s life, by her own account, was violent: In the film, her mother (played brilliantly by Allison Janney) physically abuses her, as does Gillooly (played by Sebastian Stan). “I worried that after some of the fight scenes we would never win the audience back,” Robbie told me. “When we screened the film at the Toronto International Film Festival, the whole audience gasped when Gillooly hit her. But six minutes later, he did something kind, and the audience went, ‘Ahhh!’ ”

Robbie paused. “That was interesting to me, and explains something about the insidious nature of domestic violence: The audience forgave him so quickly. So how could you blame Tonya for going back to him?” | READ FULL INTERVIEW AT W MAGAZINE

Hello Margot fans! You better be sitting down for this, because warning; extreme gorgeousness ahead… I am sure you all remember that we told you Margot would grace the cover of Wonderland Magazine’s 2017 autumn issue a couple of days ago, and now we finally have the first scans and outtakes! This is one of Margot’s most colorful and fierce photoshoots to date, and I am absolutely in love with it. Unfortunately the scans are rather small and grainy, but we will replace these with high quality scans as soon as the magazine arrives in my mail. The outtakes are however beautifully clear, and definitely one of our new favorite Margot shoots – hurry over to our gallery and start browsing all the pretty.

Once we get clearer versions of the scans, I will transcribe the interview for you and add it to our press archive. Make sure to stay tuned at our site and our twitter account for updates in the coming days.

Twisted realities and media meltdowns, Wonderland‘s Autumn 17 Issue showcases the talent defining an addictively unpredictable 2017. This season, the unconventional Hollywood star, Robert Pattinson features on our cover, following the runaway success of Good Time at Cannes and whisperings of a potential Academy Award nomination, he’s a world away from his tween blockbuster beginnings. Peering into the mind of a creative in charge, Pattinson has curated a special portfolio of pop culture heroes, icons and radical thinkers shaping his unique universe today. Alongside him, Margot Robbie graces our cover, photographed by Gia Coppola and appearing as an American sweetheart gone bad in the forthcoming biopic I, Tonya. It’s a full throttle ride with the people telling the stories and making the headlines.

Inside, there’s new season fashion from established houses and newcomers alike, a sit-down with Rodarte’s newly turned auteurs, the Mulleavy sisters and their longtime muse, Kirsten Dunst. While elsewhere, we snap Bulgari’s social-super, Jasmine Sanders and bring grime king Skepta and his pal Playboi Carti together for a chat. Last, but by no means least, genre-bending soul star Kali Uchis talks French toast and Flower Boy with eternal troublemaker Tyler, The Creator.
