The 25-year-old actress confessed to punching her costar in his face during a sex scene on the set of The Legend of Tarzan.


Beefed-up Alexander, 39, who stars as the jungle hero in the new Hollywood blockbuster The Legend of Tarzan, says - despite the action-packed nature of the movie - the only injury he got was when he filmed an 'animalistic' love scene with stunning Aussie actress Margot, 25, who plays Jane.

The Swedish-born star said: "Even though I'm fighting apes, the only injury I got was from a sex scene with Margot - she hit me!

Margot recently spoke about getting 'carried away' while filming opposite her costar, leaving a lasting mark on him.

"Our director [David Yates] wanted it to be primal and animalistic," Skarsgård explained. "What I kind of liked about this script was that when you first meet them, they are very civilizedit's not loin cloth, 'me Tarzan , you Jane.' It's them in London very buttoned up, he's drinking tea with the prime minister and then they go back to the jungle. When they have their first sex scene it's in the little village that she lived in as a teenager. David kind of egged us on and wanted it to feel very primal and she beat me up."

"I didn't injure him," she clarified. "I guess we got caught up in the moment. I didn't punch him in the face. I'm getting a bad rep that I hit all my co-stars."

As for Skarsgård's incredible physique, Robbie said of seeing him shirtless, "My mind was blank and my jaw was on the floor with everyone else in the crew. People stopped working. Even the men were just like, 'Whoa.' It's amazing. He worked so hard. I've never possessed the self-discipline to get in shape like that, I'm so impressed."

Skarsgård previously told me he trained for several months before shooting began.

"I obviously had a very good trainer," he said. "I basically had him and a nutritionist. I've never done anything like this before, this extreme. I was just really nervous. It was a big challenge and I didn't know how my body would respond to the training and diet."

Margot Robbie and Alexander Skarsgard play a hot couple in the upcoming blockbuster The Legend of Tarzan. In the film, the Australian actress plays Jane, the wife of mighty Tarzan. Ten years after coming to England and becoming an aristocrat, Tarzan returns to the Congo to serve as a trade emissary. There, Jane falls into a dangerous conspiracy of enemies, forcing Tarzan to awake his instincts and power to rescue Jane, with the help of other animals.

The Legend of Tarzan is scheduled for release on July 1, 2016 in 2D, 3D, IMAX and IMAX 3D.
