PEOPLE – Margot Robbie has had a lot of memorable moments in the past twelve months, due in large part to her involvement in I, Tonya, the dark comedy she produced and starred in about disgraced former figure skating champ, Tonya Harding.

Through her work on the film, for which she received her first-ever Oscar nomination, Robbie has become friendly with Harding and throughout the film’s run has shared in several very happy moments with the former figure skater. According to Robbie, the most memorable of them all was a chance meeting she saw between Harding and cult movie icon Tommy Wiseau.

“The craziest thing I’ve witnessed was watching Tonya Harding meeting Tommy Wiseau from The Room,” Robbie tells PEOPLE. “Seeing that collision of worlds was like mind boggling, I was like ‘Oh wow, only in Hollywood.’”

Although the actress has now attended multiple awards shows, the one thing she is still trying to master is having the perfect expression ready for when TV cameras pan to her during live broadcasts.

“It’s so awkward when the camera pans to you during an awards show,” she says. “You’re trying to have the appropriate level of excitement on your face without looking manic on screen. What’s going through my head at the time? I’m probably just wondering when the next meal is going to be served, if they’re going to serve food, most of the time they don’t.”

On Monday night (February 05) Margot and her Peter Rabbit co-star Domhnall Gleeson were guests at The Late Late Show with James Corden, promoting the movie which is also starring James Corden himself. Some videos from the interviews can be watched below:

A behind the scenes look at the making of “Peter Rabbit” shows how James Corden, the voice of the animated lead character, went unnecessarily method for the role, undergoing an operation and taking on an insane diet that really scared off his co-stars.

Fellow co-stars James Corden and Margot Robbie ask Domhnall Gleeson about heading to Australia to shoot “Peter Rabbit” — an experience James and Margot didn’t have only voicing characters — and learned Domhnall had a fierce battle against the sun and heat.

James asks Margot Robbie about all the accolades for making and starring in “I, Tonya” and learns Margot brought Tonya Harding to the Golden Globes and couldn’t have been more comfortable among Hollywood’s biggest names.

THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER – Figure skating’s most notorious character shares memories of the scandal that ended her career with the star who plays her — and reveals she’s back in training.

Margot Robbie waited until filming was just about to begin before she and director Craig Gillespie took a trip to Portland to have lunch with the woman she was about to play. Their second meeting came nearly a year later, when Tonya Harding joined Robbie on the red carpet for I, Tonya‘s Hollywood premiere. The following day, on Dec. 6, Robbie sat down with Harding, 47, for a wide-ranging conversation about the disgraced Olympian’s life now with her current husband, Joe, a heating and air conditioning specialist, and their 6-year-old son, Gordon, as well as the highs and lows of her days on the ice.

While Robbie switched between roles as interviewer and interviewee, Harding spoke candidly about her fraught relationships with both her ex Jeff Gillooly, who spent six months in prison following the 1994 assault on Harding’s then-rival Nancy Kerrigan, and her mother, with whom she’s been estranged since the early 2000s. At one point in the hourlong discussion, during which the former competitor revealed that she was back in training (she’s set to skate in an exhibition at Rockefeller Center in late January), a teary Harding thanked Robbie for not only telling her story but also providing her with closure.

THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER An ingenue turns indie producer with the figure skating biopic ‘I, Tonya’ as she opens up about the downside of starring in ‘Suicide Squad’ (“Now you have to be able to afford security”) and maps out a plan for career longevity: “I don’t want to burn hard and fast and then disappear.”

Before Margot Robbie set out for Hollywood, an agent in her native Australia advised her to prepare to answer a question she’d inevitably be asked when she arrived.

“What do you want out of your career?”

Robbie, then 20 and starring in a local soap opera, took the advice seriously. She began scribbling pages and pages of notes before ultimately whittling her answer down to just three words: “Quality, versatility and longevity.” Nail the first two, she thought, and the third will follow.

Not a half decade later, Robbie had exploded into Hollywood with her breakthrough performance as the fiery wife of Leonardo DiCaprio’s Jordan Belfort in the 2013 box-office smash The Wolf of Wall Street. She’d taken what could have been a forgettable role — described in Terence Winter’s script as the “hottest blonde ever” — and made something memorable out of it. She was promptly deluged with offers to play the “hot wife” or “hot girlfriend” of other A-list actors. Flattered as Robbie was by the sudden attention, such inessential characters didn’t fit into her career plan, and she turned nearly all of them down. “You could read a script and almost pull them out and nothing else would be affected,” she says now, between sips of tea on her back patio in Los Angeles. “Like if you pulled out that card, the card castle wouldn’t come tumbling down, and that’s not that exciting to me.” (Read the rest of the interview at the source)

THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER“I get excited with every character when there’s a skill set you get to learn for it. We’re so lucky and spoiled in that they get someone really good to teach you how to do it too,” Margot Robbie told The Hollywood Reporter during their Live Roundtable, when discussing how she prepared to play world class ice skater, Tonya Harding in I, Tonya. “When I did Focus, I had a real-life pick-pocket teach me how to pick-pocket.”

“But that’s mechanical preparation, Robbie told THR. “You put the hours in and it pays off, but if I hadn’t done all the work before-hand, I would just be too scared.”

“I’ve watched every single piece of footage there is on [Tonya Harding] a thousand times over. I had her voice in my i-Pod, I’d go to sleep listening to her. I lived in Tonya land for a long time,” Robbie told THR of her continued preparation for the role. Robbie intentionally chose to not meet Harding during her preparation so she could keep “[Tonya] and the character separate.”

“Once I decided exactly how I was going to play the character, how I was going to play every single beat, then I went to meet her.” What was it like to meet the infamous ice skater? “She was, all things considered, really, really understanding about it.”

Robbie joined in the discussion on the harassment scandals in Hollywood and the rapidly changing culture. “On one hand, you have a great opportunity,” said Robbie of the platform she and other actresses have been awarded, “but on the other hand you have a great responsibility to handle it appropriately and bring something positive out of a horrible situation. I think it’s a very individual thing.”

“I’ve never spoken to so many actresses that I’ve never met, than I have in the last couple months. Actresses — who if I met them, I’d be starstruck — are reaching out to be like, ‘Hey, there’s a group of us having a conversation about this, do you want to be involved?’ There is a sense of community, which is really wonderful, and it’s sad that that had to come out of a horrible situation, but there is a support network there and ready.”

The full Live Roundtable airs on SundanceTV, Sunday, Mar. 4. Tune in to THR.com/roundtables for more roundtables featuring talent from the year’s top films. (source)

LOS ANGELES TIMES – As part of the recent lead actress Envelope Roundtable, actress Margot Robbie talked about her work on the darkly comic biopic “I, Tonya.” Having grown up in Australia, Robbie wasn’t aware of the infamous saga of figure skater Tonya Harding. So she was able to approach the performance with a fresh perspective.

“In hindsight, I’m really grateful I wasn’t aware of the situation, or I didn’t know who any of these people were going into it, so I could really approach it with no preconceived notions or judgment,” she said. “I quickly found out that everyone had passed judgment on her.”
