Australian beauty Margot, 28, genuinely felt ‘lonely’ while filming Mary Queen of Scots as director Josie Rourke set out to explore how the infamous queen’s looks ‘affected her relationships’.

Margot told Harper’s Bazaar: ‘I’d say, “Hey, how’s your weekend?” But they wouldn’t even get close to me.

‘It was very alienating. And I felt very lonely. It was an interesting social experiment.’ When the first trailer dropped earlier this summer, fans were taken aback by the drastic change in Margot’s appearance.

The stunning star spent hours in the make-up chair disguising her glorious golden hair and flawless complexion for the role.

Her skin was painted ice white in thick layers over prosthetic scars to create the appearance of Elizabeth’s mottled skin: the result of her smallpox outbreak as a young royal.

Margot was also made to wear a bald cap to show where the royal’s red hair was thinning. The Wolf Of Wall Street star also explained why she took on the refreshing role. She continued: ‘I didn’t want to pick up another script where I was the wife or the girlfriend — just a catalyst for the male story line. It was uninspiring.’
