She’s now one of Hollywood’s biggest stars – but what was Australian actress and Barbie star Margot Robbie like at school?
For radio co-host and comedian Dave “Hughesy” Hughes, there was only one way to find out – interrogating his high school teacher in the middle of a bike shop.

Appearing on the Hughesy, Ed & Erin show on Monday, the comedian said she had a chance encounter with one of Robbie’s teachers while he was wandering around a store wearing – you guessed it – a Barbie T-shirt.
The teacher commented on Hughes’s Barbie T-shirt and then revealed that she was one of Robbie’s teachers in Queensland.
“He said, ‘I knew him since high school,'” Hughes explained.
“Okay, let’s get to the juicy part,” asked co-host Erin Molan.
“Was she mean, was she a scoundrel?”
“Well, I said, ‘How was she’, and you know what she said?” Hughes continued.
“‘Margot Robbie was ordinary at school'”.
This brought laughter from Molan and fellow radio host Ed Cavalli.
“It’s even better than him being a scoundrel!” Molan laughed.
“I like him even more now.”
Hughes added, “She wasn’t a good girl, she wasn’t a leader in (school) sports, she was just another girl in school.”
“(The teacher) said she was definitely not obnoxious, not obnoxious, a nice person.
“But no one knew what was going to happen.
“The other girls at that school would be going, ‘Why is that?'”
Robbie is often described by people who have met him as incredibly practical and “normal”, which ties into the teacher’s high school comments.
The actress was recently in Perth to attend her tasting at gin label, Papa Salt.
Wearing a loose white shirt and white platform Crocs, the 33-year-old looked a far cry from her red carpet Barbie appearance, in which she was dressed to the nines.
According to Perth Now, the Hollywood A-lister happily chatted with invitees and posed for selfies.
Robbie is spending time in his home country before starting shooting for his next project, the Ocean’s Eleven prequel.
Robbie will once again co-star with Barbie co-star Ryan Gosling.
“They’re wonderful together,” said producer Josie McNamara of the new film.
“The amount of projects we can get them to do outside of this would be amazing.”
The untitled prequel is being produced by Robbie’s production company LuckyChap Entertainment and directed by Austin Powers director Jay Roach, who previously revealed that the film is set in 1960s Monte Carlo.
Ocean’s Eleven first premiered in 2001 and stars George Clooney, Brad Pitt, Matt Damon, and Julia Roberts.
Its success spawned three sequels – including the female-driven spinoff Ocean’s Eight starring Sandra Bullock, Rihanna, Anne Hathaway and others.
