Margot Robbie once got so drunk at an award show she thought she had died.
The “Bombshell” star shared the anecdote during her recent appearance on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!”, recalling the first time she attended the Logie Awards in her native Australia at age 19.
According to Robbie, the Logies — the Australian equivalent of the Emmys — “are the funnest award shows ever. I haven’t been for a decade now. It’s like the Wild West… everyone gets absolutely hammered,” she explained.
“People are drunk the next day going to work. You have to work the next morning after the Logies, we work year-round, so people show up in their gowns, people show up still drunk,” Robbie recalled.
“The second year I went, I got so drunk I passed out in one of the toilet stalls,” she confessed. “I woke up and I came out and it happened to be the one hour that the casino closed to be cleaned and there’s no people around. I didn’t know it it ever closes, there’s usually thousands of people around. For a second in my drunken state, I was like, ‘Did I die? Is this purgatory? Am I in between heaven and hell right now? This is so weird.’”
She eventually encountered a member of the cleaning staff, who was able to convince her she wasn’t in the afterlife. From there, Robbie somehow made it to the set of the TV show she was working on at the time, where the production’s nurse gave her pure oxygen.
“Her busiest day is the day after [the Logie Awards],” Robbie joked.
