She underwent a huge transformation for her latest film, Mary Queen of Scots, where she plays Queen Elizabeth I.
And on Thursday, Margot Robbie revealed that she would tease her husband Tom Ackerley while on set, saying she would send him ‘sexy videos’ of herself with bald caps on when getting into character.
The 28-year-old Australian star made the admission when appearing on The Project, saying that Tom was ‘particularly disturbed’ whenever she had a bald cap on.

Having a laugh: ‘I actually sent a couple of funny videos when I was in the trailer and my husband was particularly disturbed when I had a bald cap on for anything,’ Margot said (pictured in character as Queen Elizabeth in Mary Queen of Scots)1.00Margot Robbie admits to sending her husband sexy videos in costumeLoaded: 0%Progress: 0%0:00PreviousPlaySkipUnmuteCurrent Time0:00/Duration Time0:16Fullscreen
‘I actually sent a couple of funny videos when I was in the trailer and my husband was particularly disturbed when I had a bald cap on for anything,’ Margot said.
‘Obviously I had a bald cap on everyday, so I’d send him, like, sexy videos being like…’ she trailed off, before running her hands through her hair.
She laughed and said Tom would be shocked by the videos, before adding that she would jokingly ask him if he missed her.
‘I was like – miss me?’ Margot hilariously said.
In the film, Queen Elizabeth I overcomes small pox but is left with scars from the condition.
She’s also half-bald and resorts to covering her face with heavy white makeup and wigs.
Margot recently told Harper’s Bazaar about her transformation into Queen Elizabeth I, saying she would sometimes feel ‘isolated’ and ‘lonely’ on set after getting her makeup done.
‘They wouldn’t even get close to me,’ she said of others on set.
‘It was very alienating. And I felt very lonely,’ Margot said.
In the film, Margot wears a prophetic nose and drawn on thin eyebrows, often being in the hair and makeup chair for three hours before filming.
Margot stars in the film opposite Saoirse Ronan, who plays Queen Elizabeth’s rival, Mary Stuart.
