Margot Robbie has revealed the surprising reason her school friends call her ‘Maggot’.

‘That has been my nickname since I was six years old,’ Margot told the panel.

‘I think a substitute teacher made a mistake on the roll call and said “maggot” and everyone love laughed,’ she continued. 

‘You can’t pick a nickname. You get given to it,’ The Wolf of Wall Street added. 

Robbie went on to say that at the time she hoped the blunder would have become a distant memory by lunch time, but ‘here we are’ still talking about it almost over two decades later.

During Monday night’s Babylon premiere in Sydney, Margot was speaking to entertainment reporter Justin Hill when one of her friends yelled out, ‘Hey, maggot!’

Justin later uploaded the clip to TikTok, and Margot’s fans went wild over her down-to-earth reaction.

‘She looks so comfortable and happy,’ one wrote, to which Justin responded: ‘She was beaming the whole time, was lovely to see’.

It comes after Margot discussed her ‘wild ride’ filming Babylon during her appearance on The Graham Norton Show.

She admitted she was ‘scared to mess up’ the epic opening party scene, which took two whole weeks to film.

Margot said of the Hollywood drama: ‘It was a wild ride. There were amazing set pieces, including a party scene that took two weeks to shoot.

‘Every part of it was insane and the stress levels were terrifying because there was so much going on and I didn’t want to be the one to mess it up.’

Set in 1920s Hollywood, Babylon centres around the rise and fall of several ambitious dreamers – including the characters portrayed by leading stars Brad Pitt and Margot.

Margot is overnight starlet Nellie LaRoy who is navigating her way through the industry by self-destructing via drugs, parties and sexual encounters.

She recently revealed she went off-script to smooch co-star Brad in an impromptu scene, jesting to E! News: ‘How else am I going to get the chance to kiss him?’
