Margot Robbie channeled Sharon Tate in “Once Upon A Time In Hollywood” with a little help from the late actress’ own jewelry collection.
In an interview with the “Today” show on Monday, the 29-year-old actress sat down with her co-stars Leonardo DiCaprio and Brad Pitt, as well as director Quentin Tarantino, to discuss how she got into character to play the pregnant movie star, who was murdered by members of the Manson Family in 1969.
As it turns out, Tate’s sister Deborah gave the film her blessing and provided the star with some of her sister’s personal possessions. “It was sometimes very sad to be that closely connected with real life Sharon,” Robbie told NBC’s Harry Smith.
“It kind of hit you at moments and suddenly the tragedy of it all would kind of hit you and you would be tremendously sad and then other times it just made me feel so happy. But yes, there were moments where it was very sad.”
Robbie has also been channeling her ’60s alter ego on the red carpet, attending a Cannes screening with her hair in loose, face-framing braids just like the ones Tate wore to the same festival in 1968. The Derek Lam dress she wore during the film’s LA photocall last week also appeared to be a nod to one Tate wore in 1969’s “Twelve Plus One.”
