She’s proven herself most adept at being both instantly mesmerizing and altogether bizarre. Her newest movie, however, looks to be something quite different.
She’s currently filming a movie called Mary Queen of Scots in which she portrays England’s Queen Elizabeth I. Here’s a painting of the real ‘Liz:
Doesn’t remind you much of Robbie, though, does it? Us, neither. This looks more like a role for Helena Bonham Carter in a Tim Burton film or Cate Blanchett (who, appropriately, has already played the real-life figure in Elizabeth and Elizabeth: The Golden Age). But Robbie? Look and judge for yourself.

The similarities between her and the woman she’s portraying is quite apparent, but it still doesn’t instantly take you aback at just how vastly different she looks.
Based off of a biography by John Guy, “My Heart Is My Own: The Life of Mary Queen of Scots,” the movie will be released next year and focuses on Mary Stuart (played by Saoirse Ronan) in her attempt to usurp her cousin Elizabeth.
