First she got to romp with Leonardo DiCaprio in “The Wolf of Wall Street” and now Margot Robbie is getting intimate on screen with “True Blood” actor Alexander Skarsgard, who along with the crew of their new film “Tarzan,” have nicknamed her “The Hobbit.”
The sexiest Hobbit ever – she stands 5 foot, 5 inches to Alexander’s 6 foot, 4 inches – says she finds the unusual nickname “endearing.”
The pair are expected to light up the screen in a new, modern take on the classic Edgar Rice Burroughs novel, which is currently filming in London.
According to a Dish Nation source, “the moniker stuck — mainly because Margot looks nothing like a Hobbit.”
The 24-year-old Australian beauty told a reporter: “Yeah he’s (Alex) really big. I look like a Hobbit next to him. We were doing camera test the other day my fingertips are literally at his knee caps. And I was like ‘Oh my God!’ He’s really big.”
Fans will not just see Margot’s Jane character will be far more ballsy than the part in other movies.
“She’s quite independent. Not so reliant on Tarzan I kind of like the strong female characters and she’s definitely a strong character, very intelligent and fun.”
But bad news for fans of Alex – according to Margot, he won’t be sporting a loin cloth.
Margot added: “No you won’t. It’s not really that kind of Tarzan movie. The costumes are actually wonderful.”
Margot will keep her clothes on in the new version of the jungle tale as studio executives want the film to appeal to young audiences.
“Margot’s Jane will be a far cry from her breakout role in the racy, R-rated ‘The Wolf Of Wall Street,'” adds the source. “When the young fans of ‘Tarzan’ grow up they can rent ‘Wolf’ and see Margot in all her glory — and I guarantee you that no one will be talking about how short she is.”
