Margot Robbie has revealed that she used to be a major metalhead.
The Suicide Squad actress, who is hosting tonight’s season premiere of Saturday Night Live, discussed her teenage metal fandom during an appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.
“I had a real like heavy metal phase,” the actress told Fallon. “I was like 14 and I dyed my hair black and I cut it with a razor blade and I’d only wear like band shirts and go listen to the heaviest of heavy metal. It was a really weird phase, but like Silverstein and Bullet for My Valentine and bands like that.”
Singling out Slipknot for particular praise, Robbie continued: “I went to a Slipknot concert and to this day it was probably the best concert I’ve ever gone to. They’re just amazing performers – even if you don’t like metal, I think you would appreciate a Slipknot concert, cause it’s just incredible to watch.”
Robbie, the break-out star of this summer’s Suicide Squad movie, is now working on a standalone Harley Quinn film which she will executive produce as well as starring in. She is also expected to return as Harley Quinn in a sequel to Suicide Squad.
