Fluff: Were Margot Robbie's legs digitally enhanced?

23-year-old ex-Neighbours star Margot Robbie is a babe. Nobody on the planet can deny that. But even the genetically blessed get a little help from special effects sometimes… The latest rumour to grip Hollywood is that Robbie’s legs were “digitally enhanced” in her first big blockbuster, The Wolf of Wall Street.

According to special effects experts and movie bloggers around the world, her pins were digitally extended to appear longer and leaner than nature intended. Experts have speculated that the 5-foot-6 actress looks “impossibly long-legged” in some of her Wolf scenes – thanks to a Photoshop-style editing program.

Look at Margot’s proportions here. What do you think – natural or enhanced?

If you’re wondering how “digital surgeries” like this work, reps from a company called Lola Visual Effects have explained. In post-production, special effects teams stretch the footage of an actor to achieve a slimmed-down look for everyone involved. “It’s like a funhouse mirror, so everyone looks tall and thin,” they said.

Guess who won the TV ratings war last night?

Last night was probably the most difficult night for TV watchers around Australia so far this year. The sound of families arguing over who got control of the remote, was deafening.

On Channel 9, we had Schapelle. The tele-movie about convicted drug-smuggler Schapelle Corby. On Channel 7, we had INXS. The first in a mini-series about the iconic band. On Channel 10, we had the Sochi Winter Olympics and Australia’s Torah Bright going for gold. On the ABC, we had the return of mega-hit Rake starring Richard Roxburgh.

So which station won the ratings war? Do Aussies care more about Schapelle, INXS, great local drama, or our cold Olympic heroes? The answer? INXS.

And here are the numbers that prove we care less about Schapelle’s real story than expected…

INXS: Never Tear Us Apart had 1,974,000 viewers.

Schapelle had 1,022,000 viewers.

If Justin Bieber was Michelle’s baby train wreck, this is what she’d do. “I don’t know if it would be advice as much as action,” Obama said.

“I would be very present in his life right now. And I would be probably with him a good chunk of the time, just there to talk, to figure out what’s going on in his head, to figure out who’s in his life and who’s not, you know.”

Michelle Obama added that Bieber is “still a kid, he’s still growing up.” This is what Bieber’s actual mom, Pattie Mallette, said: “If Justin’s struggling, don’t kick him when he’s down or condemn him — pray for him.”
