Margot Robbie is an incredibly sexy woman. In fact, Esquire magazine named her the Sexiest Woman Alive in 2017, which is… yeah, that’s this year. It’s hard to argue with that if you’ve seen her, and she’s from Australia, which is basically ground zero for beautiful, tanned people. But pictures from the set of Mary Queen of Scots show a much different Margot Robbie.

Robbie is playing Queen Elizabeth I opposite Saoirse Ronan, who is portraying the titular Scottish monarch in the upcoming biopic. It’s based on a biography by John Guy. You may know Robbie from her pants-tightening appearance as Harley Quinn in the utterly horrible DC Comics film Suicide Squad. If you’re an Aussie, you’ll remember her from her time as quirky groupie Donna Freedman on the early-evening soap opera Neighbours. That show also launched the career of singer Natalie Imbruglia. Robbie isn’t the only former Aussie soap star to headline a super hero flick as Chris Hemsworth, star of the upcoming Thor: Ragnarok, won a Logie for his portrayal of Kimberly Hunter in Home and Away.
While we may be shocked at how different (and when we say different, what we mean is unattractive, let’s not mince words here) Robbie looks, her fans on Twitter have been quick to point out Margot Robbie is already a very versatile actress.

Rumor has it that after filming this historical biopic, Margot Robbie will be playing Sharon Tate in a historical biopic directed by Quentin Tarantino. You can expect Robbie to look much more beautiful playing the late Hollywood starlet. You can also expect her to be barefoot for much of the movie because Quentin Tarantino is a perv.
Have you ever noticed that when a beautiful actress wears makeup to look less attractive, we fall all over ourselves to compliment their ability to not look beautiful? As if we’re surprised beautiful women can actually do things? Have you ever seen Helen Mirren when she younger? If you thinks she looks good now, you should have seen her when she was in her twenties. And if you think she looks better now than she did then, we’re glad you read our website, President Macron.
Man, male feminists are having a rough go of it lately. It was just a few months ago that woman-respecter Jamie Kilstein was kicked off of Citizen Radio for trying to fuck pretty much every woman who came on the podcast that he co-hosted with his wife Allison Kilkenny. And who could forget Devin Faraci, former editor-in-chief of Birth.Movies.Death, who built a career on his reputation as a male feminist, stepped down amidst allegations of sexual assault. Those were were made against him in a Twitter thread when he was talking about how Donald Trump should respect women the way he does. Months before that, a little over a year ago from today, the phenomenon was so widespread that Patton Oswald tweeted this:
The "male feminist ally turns out to be a creeper/harasser" is the "family values politician turns out to be gay" for millenials.

Which brings us to today. While Joss Whedon was taking over directing the new Justice League movie, his ex-wife was writing a guest blog on The Wrap. Here’s what she said about the very feminist Whedon, who wants you all to know how much he respects women.
Fifteen years later, when he was done with our marriage and finally ready to tell the truth, he wrote me, “When I was running ‘Buffy,’ I was surrounded by beautiful, needy, aggressive young women. It felt like I had a disease, like something from a Greek myth. Suddenly I am a powerful producer and the world is laid out at my feet and I can’t touch it.” But he did touch it. He said he understood, “I would have to lie — or conceal some part of the truth — for the rest of my life,” but he did it anyway, hoping that first affair, “would be ENOUGH, that THEN we could move on and outlast it.”
Joss admitted that for the next decade and a half, he hid multiple affairs and a number of inappropriate emotional ones that he had with his actresses, co-workers, fans and friends, while he stayed married to me. He wrote me a letter when our marriage was falling apart, but I still didn’t know the whole truth, and said, “I’ve never loved anyone or wanted to be with anyone in any real or long-term way except for you ever. And I love our life. I love how you are, how we are, who you are and what we’ve done both separately and together, how much fun we have…” He wanted it all; he didn’t want to choose, so he accepted the duality as a part of his life.
Then later, after he confessed everything, he told me, “I let myself love you. I stopped worrying about the contradiction. As a guilty man I knew the only way to hide was to act as though I were righteous. And as a husband, I wanted to be with you like we had been. I lived two lives.” When he walked out of our marriage, and was trying to make “things seem less bewildering” to help me understand how he could have lied to me for so long, he said, “In many ways I was the HEIGHT of normal, in this culture. We’re taught to be providers and companions and at the same time, to conquer and acquire — specifically sexually — and I was pulling off both!”
What’s interesting to me is that even in a private letter to his wife apologizing for spending their entire marriage banging anything that moves, he still shoehorned in some feminist talking points about the concept of toxic masculinity. At least he admits that he went around banging on about what a great feminist he is to cover the fact that he was also banging on any woman who would have him.
Is anyone shocked that this keeps happening? There are plenty of people who want equal rights and treatment for women who don’t run around in their $150 designer “This is what a feminist looks like” t-shirts, writing essays for Jezebel about how manspreading is a bigger threat than ISIS. Even the Bible tells you to keep an eye on people who tell you how pious they are.
Margot Robbie, is that you?! The internet did a collective double take on Monday when photos of the Australian actress on the set of her new movie surfaced online, because, I mean, what. the. hell. Margot looked practically unrecognizable when she recently stepped out in costume as Queen Elizabeth I while filming her new movie, Mary Queen of Scots, in London. Dressed in traditional garb, Margot sported a frizzy red hairstyle similar to that of Hocus Pocus witch Winifred Sanderson (before she sucked the lives out of little children). In addition to a receding hairline, the recently married star's makeup appeared to feature a prosthetic nose and rough skin. Since Margot is ridiculously stunning in real life, these photos are all the more interesting to look at.
Joss Whedon is likely as respected a writer as there is in Hollywood.
But there's one woman who does not think highly of the producer and director; one woman who thinks his entire reputation is built on lies and deception:
Kai Cole, an architect and producer, has written a very personal and pointed essay for The Wrap, one in which she accuses Whedon of engaging in a multitude of affairs over the course of their 16-year marriage.
Moreover, she says the Buffy the Vampire Slayer creator tried to use his feminist credentials as a way to shield himself from criticism.
After explaining how the pair met in 1991 and how she encouraged him to make the TV show that made him famous, Cole wrote:
"There were times in our relationship that I was uncomfortable with the attention Joss paid other women. He always had a lot of female friends, but he told me it was because his mother raised him as a feminist, so he just liked women better.
"He said he admired and respected females, he didn’t lust after them. I believed him and trusted him.
"On the set of Buffy, Joss decided to have his first secret affair."
It wasn’t until the couple’s marriage was over that Cole says Whedon came clean, confessing having lied “two lives.”
"Joss admitted that for the next decade and a half, he hid multiple affairs and a number of inappropriate emotional ones that he had with his actresses, co-workers, fans and friends, while he stayed married to me."
It wasn't just the act of her husband allegedly sleeping with other women that grates at Cole, however.
It's that Whedon is considered one of the most progressive and feminist figures in entertainment.
"He never conceded the hypocrisy of being out in the world preaching feminist ideals, while at the same time, taking away my right to make choices for my life and my body based on the truth," she says, adding in detail:
He deceived me for 15 years, so he could have everything he wanted. I believed, everyone believed, that he was one of the good guys, committed to fighting for women’s rights, committed to our marriage, and to the women he worked with.
But I now see how he used his relationship with me as a shield, both during and after our marriage, so no one would question his relationships with other women or scrutinize his writing as anything other than feminist.
In a scathing conclusion, Cole says of Whedon:
"I want to let women know that he is not who he pretends to be. I want the people who worship him to know he is human, and the organizations giving him awards for his feminist work, to think twice in the future about honoring a man who does not practice what he preaches.
"But no matter what happens, or how people interpret this statement, I no longer have to carry the burden of Joss’ long-term deceit and confessions.
"I am free."
In a statement to The Wrap, a spokesperson for Whedon replies as follows:
"While this account includes inaccuracies and misrepresentations which can be harmful to their family, Joss is not commenting, out of concern for his children and out of respect for his ex-wife."
