Geeking out! Margot Robbie’s past came back to haunt her on Jimmy Kimmel Live on Tuesday, June 28, when the late-night host unearthed her most mortifying photo ever!
The Legend of Tarzan actress, 25, was stunned to find out that one of her friends had sent in a picture from her teenage years. In the photo, Robbie lounges in bed with a cup of tea and a Harry Potter book — and she has braces and glasses.
“I don’t think I’d even recognize you,” Kimmel said of the shocking throwback pic.
Robbie revealed that the snap, which she called “literally the most embarrassing photo of my whole life,” was taken on her 13th birthday. “I’m drinking a cup of tea. I’m in bed. I’m clearly really enjoying myself, reading Harry Potter,” she said. “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.”
The Australian beauty explained that she wanted glasses so badly because she was such a massive Harry Potter fan. “I have 20/20 vision and I lied to get glasses so I could look like Harry Potter,” she said, laughing uncontrollably. “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! My mom’s like, ‘Do you really need glasses?’ I was like, ‘Yes, I do!’”
The Wolf of Wall Street star has come a long way since her 13th birthday — she’s celebrating turning 26 on Saturday, July 2. “We’re going to have a little Hawaiian luau because why the hell not?” she said. “We’re going to go all-out — coconut bras and grass skirts for the boys.”
This isn’t Robbie’s first theme birthday bash. For her 24th birthday, she revealed that she had a 24-hour party with multiple costume changes. “It’s what I imagine it’s like to do a marathon, but in the drinking realm,” she joked. The group started with a champagne breakfast in her courtyard at 9 a.m. before hitting up London’s Hyde Park, Five Guys Burgers and Fries, a karaoke bar and “progressively filthier and filthier bars,” until they ended up back at the courtyard at 9 a.m. the following day. While the marathon was “absolutely exhausting,” Robbie said it was “really rewarding when you make it to the finish line and you all look at each other like, ‘We did it. We did it.’”
