John Cena is one of the biggest professional wrestlers in the world, so it’s unsurprising that he’s also collected some famous fans along the way. Including none other than Hollywood A-lister Margot Robbie.
Speaking in a new interview with Chris Van Vliet, Robbie said that Cena is still her favourite, even though you can’t see him.

“He is [still my favourite]. He is so worth the hype, he is the best. I love him, I really love him, even though you can’t see him.”
Speaking during an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live alongside Cena and James Gunn in 2021, Robbie gave an interesting insight into how her wrestling and Cena fandom began. The Australian star revealed that she was younger she was a big WWE fan and more specifically a fan of The Undertaker. Although she stopped watching when she was a teenager.
However, she later had a boyfriend who was “obsessed” with John Cena which sparked her own love of the former World Champion. Bizarrely she also detailed how her boyfriend slept with a cardboard cut-out of Cena in his room.
But then, as a late teen, early 20s, I had a boyfriend who was obsessed with John Cena — so much so that he dressed as John Cena for his 21st birthday, and [he] had a cardboard cut-out of John Cena in his bedroom. So I slept in a room for two years with a life-size cardboard cut-out of John Cena in the room.
And I remember thinking, ‘I wonder if now that I’m going to work with Cena, should I tell him this or is that going to be weird?’” Robbie recalled. “And I thought, ‘I’m just going to keep that to myself. I’m not going to tell him. That’d be a weird way to start our working relationship.’ And then five seconds into meeting him, I’m like, ‘I used to sleep in a room with a life-size cut-out of you.’”
John Cena and Margot Robbie were appearing to promote The Suicide Squad which was released in July 2021.
