People can’t quite seem to get enough of the British monarchy on TV and in the movies as evidenced by the staggering number of Queens Elizabeth we’ve seen in recent years. Playing The Queen must be catnip to an actress what with the gowns, the Oscar/Emmy bait and the bottomless cups of Twinings on set.
Margot Robbie is the latest actress to make her royal dreams come true and don the crown on the silver screen as The Virgin Queen, Elizabeth I in the upcoming movie Mary Queen of Scots. Starring alongside (or more likely, in the vicinity of) Taylor Swift’s trick of the month Joe Alwyn, Margot gets all dolled up for the role of a lifetime. Only when I say dolled up I really mean dolled up.
Daily Mail has pictures from the set:

Damn! Who been playing rough with Barbie? I used to beat the shit out of my Barbie dolls, but somebody really pulled a number on Margot Barbie! They cut her hair with safety scissors and then dipped her head in their Kool-Aid at snack time, put her through the wash several times times and then left her out in the sun all summer, letting her get all faded and crusty. Daily Mail reports:
Gone were the bombshell’s trademark platinum locks and polished make-up and in their place were a balding head dotted with fiery tresses and a pockmarked blotchy complexion as she took on the role of Elizabeth I.
The former Neighbours star even appeared to have had a severe, prosthetic nose applied.
I love it! Against popular advice, Margot is going Full Kidman. Margot looks happy as a clam on set because duh, playing QEI is following in the footsteps of the greats. She can probably smell that Oscar nomination all the way from Windsor Castle. According to DM:
Starring alongside David Tennant and Joe Alwyn, Margot will follow in the footsteps of the likes of Bette Davis and Judi Dench who both took on the role of the Tudor queen during their careers.
Helen Mirren, Miranda Richardson and Cate Blanchett have also tried their hands at becoming the troubled ruler.
If I were an actress, I’d get all uglied-up too if I could have my name listed with those legendary queens. No word if Joe will have to go through a similar transformation for his role but I hope for his sake he doesn’t have to suffer the same treatment I used to put my Ken dolls through. My Ken dolls always got their big toe cut off and glued to their pubic mound so he could smash with Barbie in the back of the Dream Car. Realism is important and all actors/dolls should be willing to suffer for their/my art.
