Margot Robbie was a super fan of Slipknot and heavy metals
Margot Robbie is still a heavy metal fan as the star explained her childhood love for Slipknot.
While on The Graham Norton Show to promote her upcoming film Babylon, Robbie revealed that while she was “not [full] goth” as a teenager, she was “very emo”.
“Does anyone like heavy metal? Was it something you really liked?’ co-star Cate Blanchett asked.
“I honestly do, and I really do,” Robbie replied. “I remember going to this Slipknot concert [while in Neighbours] and at the time it was the biggest I’d ever recognized. “I’ve never had more people come up to me than at a Slipknot concert,” he added.
“The crossover between Neighbors and Slipknot [was amazing]. It was [also] so unexpected. They were worried about all the characters [in the soap] and whether so-and-so’s baby is okay. [Slipknot fans] were so invested in Neighbours,” added Robbie before reiterating that she is still a fan.
“I would only listen to heavy metal music, [and] I would die my hair black and only cut it with a razor. Well, yeah, kind of goth.’
Earlier in 2018, Bullet From My Valentine and Slipknot’s Corey Taylor surprised Robbie with an appearance on BBC Radio 1.
“I heard you came to see Slipknot a long time ago, and I just wanted to say thank you and say how excited I am for your success,” Taylor said.
“If you ever want to come to another Slipknot show, just let us know – we hope it’s as crazy as you remember it.”
