Margot Robbie talks about John Cena
She revealed that she had a boyfriend in her early 20s, who was obsessed with John Cena. She said:
“As a late teen, early 20s, I had a boyfriend who was obsessed with John Cena. So much so, that he dressed as John Cena for his 21st birthday and had a cardboard cut-out of John Cena in his bedroom,” Margot Robbie revealed. “So I slept in a room for two years with a life-size cardboard cut-out of John Cena in the room [laughs].
When they both started working together, Margot Robbie revealed the incident “five seconds into meeting” to the 16-time world champion. She recalled:
“I remember thinking, ‘I wonder if now that I’m going to work with John Cena, should I tell him [the cardboard cut-out story] or is that going to be weird?’ And I thought, ‘I’m just going to keep that to myself, I’m not going to tell him. That would be a weird way to start our working relationship and friendship.’ Then five seconds into meeting him, I was like, ‘I used to sleep in a room with a life-size cut-out of you.'”
Cena recently returned to WWE and is set to face WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns at upcoming SummerSlam pay-per-view on August 21.
