Watch Margot Robbie Struggle With Super Spicy Wings on ‘Hot Ones’ Season 11 Premiere
The “Birds of Prey” actress has literally never been hotter.
Margot Robbie nearly succumbed to the face-melting hot sauce heat while eating increasingly spicy chicken wings on the Season 11 premiere of Hot Ones.
The Australian actress and Maxim Hot 100 beauty appeared on Complex’s popular food-themed web show to promote the release of the Suicide Squad spin-off Birds of Prey, in which she reprises her role as Harley Quinn. A foreshadowing of Robbie’s spicy struggle arrived with the second wing, when she reached for ice water and announced that the heat level was approaching her palate’s threshold.
Still, Robbie was able to offer up some interesting nuggets of information during the fiery interview. She claims to have once won an eating competition by finishing four pounds of spaghetti Bolognese–which is extremely impressive–and revealed that her favorite Harley Quinn tattoo is of a dolphin jumping over a rainbow located on the DC antihero’s right hip.
On wing seven, a visibly uncomfortable Robbie took off her jacket and offered up a tattoo hack—”Be drunk first”—before revealing a pickpocketing tip she learned from expert thief consultant Apollo Robbins while preparing to star alongside Will Smith in 2015’s crime drama Focus.
“If you can touch someone in a particular place, it’s like having a spotlight,” she explained to Hot Ones host Sean Evans. “You can make someone’s brain only see what you’re shining a spotlight on.”
Wing 8, which is coated in the notoriously hellish “Da Bomb Beyond Insanity” sauce, spawned an expletive-filled response to Evans inquiry into Robbie’s days acting on the Aussie soap opera Neighbours.
“Oh my fucking god. I think I might die. It’s so spicy. Holy shit.”
For wing 10, Robbie’s co-stars Ella Jay Basco, Mary Elizabeth Winstead and Jurnee Smollet-Bell joined her in taking the Last Dab. Watch the whole episode above. Birds of Prey hits theaters beginning February 7.
