So as I’m sure you’re all aware the all-star Legend of Tarzan film is due to hit our screens on Wednesday featuring none other than Mr Samuel L Jackson, Christoph Waltz, John Hurt, and Margot Robbie.
But Miss Robbie’s status as one of the world’s most prominent sex symbols may be on the decline after news emerged that she injured her co-star while shooting a raunchy scene for the upcoming Tarzan movie, reports EW.
Acting as Jane in the film, Robbie took part in a nudey scene with feral child turned ape man, Tarzan, who is played by Alexander Skarsgård. But things turned sour when Robbie reportedly hit Skarsgard – and pretty damn hard too.
Director David Yates said:
They’re doing this love scene together, and I said [to Robbie], ‘Just slap Alex while you’re making love, just kind of give him a punch.’
It was sort of an earthy, sensual moment of her enjoying sex with Alex, and the only bruise he picked up during the entire shoot was probably that punch from Margot. Which says a lot about her feistiness.
Skarsgard also commented on Aussie Robbie’s character, saying:
It was very important that we didn’t want it to feel archaic or dated, where it’s like, tough guy has to save the poor girl. You have to feel that she’s strong and independent, and when you cast Margot, you’ll definitely get that.
You will literally get that – says a scared and bruised Skarsgard.
