Why Margot Robbie and Alexander Skarsgard Are a BFF Dream Team
Having pals who’ve got your back is super important. Taylor Swift’s #GirlSquad constantly gives us major friendship goals for just this reason. Besides having fun together, the crew’s members seem to support each other at every opportunity, like when Lena Dunham defended Taylor about Kanye’s “Famous” vid. But while having friends you can trust is clutch for getting through life, it doesn’t mean that the only BFFs women can have are other women. Like Tay and Ed Sheeran, we’re seeing a new celebrity power friendship emerge in The Legend of Tarzan co-stars Margot Robbie and Alexander Skarsgard, and it’s giving us major warm fuzzies.
At the UK premiere of their movie, The Legend of Tarzan, Robbie narrowly avoided a wardrobe malfunction as the zipper of her dress came undone. Now, usually on the red carpet, we see PR people or stylists run up to fix these kinds of little issues. But this time, Margot’s co-star Alexander Skarsgard sprung into action, helping correct the zipper on his friend’s dress with casual quickness. While Margot seemed to be mortified, ASkars took it in stride, not even batting an eyelash. Margot thanked him by giving him a small kiss on the cheek before the pair continued on down the red carpet as if nothing happened.
While we’re not entirely sure if they were truly pals before this happened, we def hope this little act of kind consideration will launch the duo into BFF territory from now on. Because when you’ve got a friend as helpful as this, you need to make sure they stay in your squad forever.
