If you thought you were the only whose heart skipped a beat when you snuck a peek at Alexander Skarsgard's insanely ripped body in The Legend of Tarzan movie, think again.

Fellow cast member Margot Robbie has revealed that she was also rather taken aback when faced with the actor's rippling abs during the shoot for the first time. In an interview with, the Australian actress admitted the following of the talented Swede:

“My mind went blank as I soon as I saw him shirtless.”

And she wasn't the only one on set rendered speechless by Tarzan's topless body:

“Every girl on set was swooning, I think, when they saw him. He worked so hard to get in that kind of shape. I would never have had the discipline that he needed to spend so many months training and dieting to achieve that look. I really admire him for that.”

Just as well that the actress had the hots for Skarsgard in his semi-naked state, especially considering the fact that she had to appear in a sex scene with him. Reportedly, director David Yates urged the two actors to be "more primal" in those moments together, something Robbie has also spoken out about:

"I didn't injure Alexander and I didn't punch him in the face, at least not hard. But he's a pretty strong guy, he can take it. We just got carried away a bit."

I bet you did!

And while we wait to feast our eyes on all of the above, here's the trailer for The Legend of Tarzan once again:
