Hi, my name is Margot Robbie
00:02
and I'm doing an ASMR interview for W Magazine.
00:07
I'm gonna google it straight after this,
00:09
'cause I don't know what it is.
00:10
I feel like we're in a library or something.
00:16
I'm from Australia, the Gold Coast, in Queensland.
00:20
I love the ocean, obviously.
00:23
I love my family,
00:24
they're an Australian thing so I can say that.
00:27
I love Vegemite.
00:31
I definitely ate Vegemite as a child,
00:34
everyone does, it would be super weird if you didn't,
00:37
but it is an acquired taste.
00:40
This is what it sounds like.
00:42
(knife scraping on toast)
00:45
That's the sound of my childhood.
00:48
(knife scraping on toast)
00:53
Take it slow, maybe add a slice of cheese with it.
00:57
It can be a lot just on its own.
00:59
I moved to the United States when I was 20 years old.
01:02
I love it.
01:03
I got a job pretty quickly
01:05
and I got to go to New York for the first time
01:08
and I was working on a show called Pan Am,
01:10
which is about flight attendants in the '60s.
01:13
This is an authentic seatbelt from 1963,
01:16
when the show was set.
01:18
You can tell that this is proper vintage.
01:21
It's not.
01:22
Here's the sound of the seatbelt.
01:25
(metal clacking)
01:26
Wait for the satisfying bit.
01:29
(seatbelt clasp clicking)
01:31
(belt zipping)
01:32
Sexy.
01:34
Hairspray was actually a big part of Pan Am.
01:37
This is what the sound of the '60s is.
01:40
(hairspray hissing)
01:42
Also satisfying.
01:44
(hairspray hissing)
01:45
The smell is really bringing back memories.
01:47
My first American film, which was the Wolf of Wall Street,
01:51
I played Naomi and she is the wife
01:55
of stockbroker Jordan Belfort,
01:57
who is played by Leonardo DiCaprio.
02:00
She was wickedly fun to play,
02:02
very different from myself.
02:04
This is what it sounds like
02:06
when Naomi's walking towards you.
02:07
(high heels clacking)
02:10
That sounds a little more ominous
02:12
than she probably sounds coming towards you,
02:14
but you get the idea.
02:15
(high heels clacking)
02:18
The easiest day of shooting I ever did
02:21
was my little cameo role in the Big Short.
02:23
Where I fully, truly I did half a day of shooting
02:26
in a mansion in Malibu
02:27
and I got to sit in a bathtub.
02:29
Adam McKay actually gave me real champagne,
02:32
not just any champagne, but 20 year old Dom Perignon.
02:35
I'm gonna replicate it.
02:38
(foil ripping)
02:43
This bit's less exciting, hold on,
02:45
it gets to the good bit.
02:48
(champagne cork popping)
02:50
That's probably my favorite sound
02:51
in the whole world, actually.
02:53
(champagne pouring)
02:56
(champagne fizzing)
03:00
Fancy.
03:04
(glasses clinking)
03:06
And to take my favorite line to date,
03:09
now fuck off.
03:11
Thank you for listening.
