Margot Robbie reveals she was not immune to the awkward teen phase.

Full praise to the higher powers. Hollywood’s Australian of the moment, Margot Robbie, has finally revealed that she too was one a mere mortal.

Appearing on Jimmy Kimmel Live earlier this week to promote her upcoming film, Tarzan, the Queensland born actress shared that growing up, she was a “massive Harry Potter fan”. Who wasn’t Margot, who wasn’t?

Pouncing on the opportunity, Kimmel produced an image of Robbie from this glorious period of her life, showing the Wolf of Wall Street actress donning braces and glasses, tucked up in bed with a cup of tea, a copy of Harry Potter in hand.

"I don't think I'd even recognise you," Kimmel said laughing.

"Literally the most embarrassing photo of my whole life," the actress said before explaining the photo was taken on her 13th birthday.

"I'm clearly really enjoying myself reading Harry Potter," the 26-year-old said before admitting that one prop in the incredible archive image was actually a ruse.

"I am wearing glasses which I didn't actually need," Robbie said laughing. "I have 20/20 vision. I lied to get glasses so I could look like Harry Potter!"

Thank you Margot Robbie, you are truly a beacon of hope to us all.
