Appearing recently on the The Graham Norton Show, actress Margot Robbie had to explain her enthusiastic appreciation for heavy metal music to both show host and Academy Award-winner Cate Blanchett.
Blanchett probed Robbie to determine if she truly appreciated metal music, and moreover, if anybody could actually enjoy it. With poise, Robbie proclaimed that she “genuinely likes it,” before sharing an anecdote from a SLIPKNOT concert.
“I remember going to a SLIPKNOT concert, and at the time I was on Neighbours. I’ve never had more people come up to me, ever, than at a SLIPKNOT concert.
“It was so unexpected. And they worried about all the characters. They were so invested in Neighbours and SLIPKNOT.”
“We opened for SLIPKNOT at the show she attended, she got crowd killed only to come back stronger as force of nature in acting,” Jasta tweeted.
While it may be hard to tell if Jasta was being serious or not, the thought that a future Hollywood A-lister potentially experienced some of metal music’s most deplorable treatment is remarkable.
