Margot Robbie and the rest of The Project panelists were left in shock yesterday, after Carrie Bickmore asked the Hollywood actress an X-rated question. 

During a pre-recorded interview, Carrie spoke candidly with the Once Upon A Time In Hollywood star, touching on the topic of having a relationship while being in the spotlight. 

Carrie asked Margot if her and her husband, Tom Ackerley, “ever just sit on the couch and you know, Netflix and chill?”

Margot’s voice shook as she laughed through the question, looking a bit uncomfortable before eventually saying: “We don’t get as much downtime as we would probably like but we both really like what we do. 

“We also have a lot of time to chill, actually that’s a lie we don’t have time to chill, but we have a lot of fun and we love what we do.”

Peter Helliar was quick to call Carrie out on the awkward moment as soon as the interview cut back to the studio, asking Carrie if she “forgot what Netflix and chill actually means?”.

“Perhaps I just meant hang on the couch instead of having action on a couch,” Carrie said, laughing out loud after realising her faux pas. 

“I mean it’s concerning her answer was that they don’t get a lot of time for it,” she continued.

Carrie’s hilarious question comes just days after I’m A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here! Contestant, Charlotte Crosby, left The Project hosts in fits of giggles after revealing a candid sex confession about her love life with her new beau, Ryan Gallagher. 

When the former Geordie Shore star was asked if she’d spent the night with Ryan, Charlotte claimed a “medical reason” meant there was no action between the sheets after they left the jungle. 

“Obviously we spent last night together - nothing like you think! I've got some infections down there... you can't really go there at the moment,” Charlotte said.

“So at the weekend there's going to be some fireworks, I tell you now! Give us two more days with the cream!”

Hosts Lisa Wilkinson and Rachel Corbett were left visibly shocked by Charlotte’s confession, with the both of them breaking down into fits of giggles.
