AUSSIE rising star Margot Robbie has revealed she did something at the Oscars on Sunday that had screen legend Clint Eastwood shooting her daggers.
The glamorous actress told Shazam Top 20 radio hosts Angus O’Loughlin and Ash London that she smuggled a bottle of champagne back to her seat.
The Academy Awards is notoriously a dry event, with the star-studded crowd confined to theatre seating during official proceedings.
“I went backstage because I had to present (on stage) and afterwards I did an interview… they gave me this bottle of champagne,” Robbie said.
“I was back in my seat and we were in an ad break, so I opened it. It popped really loudly. Clint Eastwood was sitting right in front of me and he turned around and glared at me.”
The Wolf Of Wall Street star, whose meteoric rise from soap series Neighbours to starring roles in Hollywood blockbusters, found the whole experience mortifying.
“I kind of ducked my head.”

Although she admits Eastwood’s angry face looked a lot like the furrowed expression the iconic actor normally sports.
“I don’t know. Maybe he wanted some? It looked like a glare though.”
It’s not the only awkward encounter with another celeb that she has experienced of late.
Robbie’s next movie project Focus, in which she stars alongside Will Smith, is released in Australia on March 5.
While she was chuffed to land a gig alongside the rapper-turned-actor, Robbie admitted she had never seen his most iconic work — hit 90s TV series The Fresh Prince of Bel Air.

“He was like: ‘Hold up! Oh hell no!’
“I’ve never seen it. I know what it is obviously but I’ve never seen Fresh Prince.”
When asked to compare kissing Smith to kissing her last co-star Leonardo DiCaprio, Robbie admitted it was hard to judge.
“Screen kissing isn’t quite the same as a normal, real-life kiss. I’d say they’re definitely on par. They’ve had a lot of experience.”
But Australian actor Alan Fletcher, who plays Dr Karl Kennedy on Neighbours, is by far the best smoocher, Robbie joked.
Robbie’s full interview will air during tonight’s Shazam Top 20.
