We know Australian sweetheart Margot Robbie was really good at school, we know she has a heart of gold, and has incredible style—but on this day, we’ve also learned how physically fit she is, too.
In a new photo posted to Instagram by her personal trainer David Higgins, Robbie cheekily stands next to a whiteboard that displays the length of time the cast and crew of Barbie could hold a plank.
Robbie came in second at 4-minutes and 10-seconds to Higgins 5-minutes and 32-seconds. But it was Ryan Gosling, Robbie’s Barbie co-star and Ken to her Barbie, came in fourth at 3-minutes and 2-seconds. Trans actress Hari Nef who plays one of the Barbies in the film came in fifth at 2-minutes and 15-seconds and Robbie’s British husband and part owner of LuckyChap Productions Tom Ackerley got a time of 1-minute and 36-seconds.
One commenter summed up our thoughts entirely: “I know she’d run a Pilates studio in the Sunshine Coast like it was the navy,” they joked.

“I always find that the aesthetics come naturally when you’re working out properly and you’re looking after your diet, but it wasn’t ever the focus,” Higgins told PopSugar. “Barbie was more about let’s just feel good, and if you feel good, that’s going to translate on camera.”
