Margot showed off her natural beauty wearing minimal makeup and natural beach waves.

The Aussie beauty opened up in the interview with the magazine, explaining that playing Tonya Harding in her new film I, Tonya was a little daunting, as she was playing a real-life person and not a fictional character.

"Playing Tonya [Harding], who’s very much alive and is widely documented," the actress confessed, "can be more intimidating."

And it seems acting isn't the only thing this Aussie babe can do. She told the publication that she has a passion for fire-twirling.

"I recently bought fire-twirling poles," she admitted, "because I really want to get good at it. When I was backpacking in the Philippines, there were heaps of fire twirlers on the beach, and it was so cool. I was like, Wow, I really want to do that!”.

The film I, Tonya directed by Craig Gillespie, follows the real-life rivalry between Tonya and fellow US skater, Nancy Kerrigan and the memorable 1994 incident when Tonya's ex-husband tried to sabotage Nancy's chances at the Winter Olympics.

Margot has previously spoken about what it took to transform into Tonya, saying she was reduced to tears while filming.

The rigorous training schedule required her to train for five days a week for four months.

"I kept my ice skates – but I said goodbye to a whole work of pain that I didn’t realise came along with figure skating," she recently told W Magazine.

When it came down to training, her choreographer never had any sympathy to offer her but when Margot had a "real skater fall" she was allowed "a minute".

"I was so proud, with tears streaming down my face."

The film hits cinemas around Australia on Febuary 15, 2018.
