Metal is more mainstream these days, but not too many celebs like to admit it.

That didn’t stop A-lister Margot Robbie from confessing her love for metal when she arrived on Graham Norton.

During a recent interview, Robbie talked about going through a darker musical phase saying,

I don’t know if I was a full goth. Very emo though, and I listened to, like, only heavy metal music. I would dye my hair black and only cut it with a razor blade….so yeah, kinda goth.”

While Robbie was happy to discuss her love of metal, fellow actress Cate Blanchett did have a few eye rolls, asking Robbie if she felt the same way about monster trucks.

Robbie was happy to defend her love of acts like Slipknot, saying that she got recognized for the first time at a Knot show 

“I still genuinely like it. 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.”

Although Slipknot and Hollywood don’t mix often, Robbie still has respect for their insane live show saying,

I went to a Slipknot concert and to this day it was probably the best concert I’ve ever gone to. They’re just amazing performers – even if you don’t like metal, I think you would appreciate a Slipknot concert, cause it’s just incredible to watch.”

Corey Taylor eventually caught wind of Robbie’s praise back in 2018 and invited her to another gig when she had time saying

“I just wanted to thank you and say how chuffed I am about your success. If you ever want to come to another Slipknot show, just let us know – hopefully it’s as crazy as you remember it.”

Hollywood might look like all glitz and glamor, but it’s hard to say no to Slipknot’s intensity.
