​Although it was just Margot Robbie's first time on The Ellen Show, the two had definitely met before.


Margot actually has quite the story of her first encounter with Ellen Degeneres, which is absolutely hilarious to us, but completely embarrassing for her!

During an appearance to promote her new movie I, Tonya, Margot and Ellen reminisced on their first meeting.

Margot and her husband Tom Ackerley spent their honeymoon in Tahiti, and on one occasion decided to go to the gym. For whatever reason, Tom threw on a pair of short shorts, much to Margot's horror.

Margot explained, "I was like, 'Babe, you cannot wear those shorts...I can see everything."

"'He was like, 'Oh c'mon. Who are we going to run into?'" 

Well, they saw just about the most important people in America! Upon arrival, the two saw Ellen and her wife, Portia Rossi, on the treadmills. Horrified, Margot and Tom met the stars, thinking things couldn't get more embarrassing.

But instead, Ellen then introduced them to Barack Obama!

You can't make this stuff up.

Needless to say, Tom was scared away from those short shorts for life, and thanks to Ellen, who awarded he and Margot sweatpants during her appearance on the show, he will never have to wear them again!
