Margot Robbie and John Cena recently appeared on “Jimmy Kimmel Live” to promote The Suicide Squad, which hits theaters and HBO Max next month.
During the show, Margot Robbie commented on an ex-boyfriend who used to watch WWE all the time. Due to this, she wound up sleeping in a room with a life-size cut-out of John Cena. She said,
“I watched WWE when I was growing up. When I was a kid, I loved the Undertaker, and then obviously when I was a teenager I kind of stopped watching. But then, 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 [he] had a cardboard cutout of John Cena in his bedroom. So I slept in a room for two years with a life-size cardboard cutout of John Cena in the room. And I remember thinking, ‘I wonder if now that I’m going to work with John Cena, should I tell him this 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’d be a weird way to start our working relationship.’ And then five seconds into meeting him, I’m like, ‘I used to sleep in a room with a life-size cutout of you.’”
Cena replied with the following,
“In my defense, I was more than likely wearing jean shorts.”
