The actor, who is up for Best Actress at the Oscars for her performance in I, Tonya, was a guest on Nick Grimshaw’s Heart Rate Monitor series. In the segment, stars have their heart rates measured while being shown various things from their lives.
“When I was younger, I was really into Metallica. I went to a Slipknot concert when I was younger,” she said at one point. “I was into Thrice, Bullet For My Valentine. I loved them back in the day.”
The monitor then cut to footage of Bullet For My Valentine dedicating ‘Tears Don’t Fall’ to Robbie, with frontman Matthew Tuck saying: “The next song we’re going to play is dedicated to a very special, very beautiful, talented young woman. You will all know her from such Hollywood blockbusters as Suicide Squad and The Wolf Of Wall Street. Ladies and gentlemen, make some noise for the amazing Margot Robbie. We’re going to take you back, Margot. This one’s for you.”
“You’re kidding me! Oh my god,” she said in disbelief. “I’m dying, this is like my whole childhood. Oh my god, I’m dying. I can’t believe you arranged that. Thank you. I’m honestly so touched, I can’t tell you.”
After Grimshaw told her the test was over, he then surprised her with a message from Corey Taylor. “I heard you were a massive fan,” he said. “I heard you came to see Slipknot a long time ago and I just wanted to thank you and say how chuffed I am about your success. It’s really, really massive. If you ever want to come to another Slipknot show, just let us know – hopefully it’s as crazy as you remember it. Cheers to you and all your success, take it easy.”
“I can’t believe this,” Robbie said, before calling Grimshaw her “favourite person in the world”. Watch it above from the 5:55 mark.
In 2016, Robbie revealed she had had a “heavy metal phase”. “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,” she said. “It was a really weird phase.”
