She has little contact with her father and spends most of her time on her grandparents farm. From the age of 16, in parallel with her studies, she does many small jobs. In an interview with Vogue magazine, she says:“Very young, I wanted to get rich. At school, all my friends had money. I used to go to their house a lot and now I know what it is like to be rich. So I was like: Ok, I know what I want.”

At fifteen, she decided to become an actress after seeing a girl of her age play a scene on television. She explains: “I was watching TV. There was a girl my age doing a scene and it wasn’t very good. I remember thinking I would have done better.” She is a fan of American pop culture, including TV series and films.

Margot Robbie’s role in the film “The Wolf of Wall Street” has earned her major nominations for a number of prestigious awards. The actress also received a nomination for the BAFTA Rising Star Award.

Acting debut in Australia

Margot Robbie began her career in 2008 by filming in two feature films, Vigilante and ICU, and starring in two television series.

In 2008, she really became known to the Australian public thanks to the soap opera Les Voisins, in the cast of which she was integrated to her greatest surprise, she explains to the Digital Spy site. This role earned her two nominations for the Logie Awards, prizes awarded to Australian TV professionals.

It also runs commercials, including Network Ten, one of the three main chains of Australian television. She was nominated in the “Sexiest Female Hottie ”category at the Nickelodeon Australian Kids Choice Awards.

In 2010, she announced that she was leaving Les Voisins after three seasons to pursue her acting career in Hollywood. She is nominated (but still not awarded) for the Most Popular Actress at the Logie Awards. Six years later, she told “If anyone mentions the [Neighbors] series, I immediately feel a sense of nostalgia. I miss not playing it anymore and not being in Australia anymore.”

Breakthrough in Hollywood

She then left for Los Angeles to try her luck. Shortly after, she was engaged, with Christina Ricci, by the production company Sony Pictures Television, in the television series Pan Am, intended for the ABC 20 channel. She plays a novice flight attendant for Pan American World Airways in the 1960s. The series is canceled after only one season for lack of audience, nevertheless some critics praise the play of the 20 actors.

In 2012, the actress flew to England to star in the romantic comedy About Time by writer-director Richard Curtis alongside Rachel McAdams and Domhnall Gleeson. However, the film fell short of expectations 21 and (except in the UK) it was a semi-failure.

In 2013, she starred (in a supporting role) in the film The Wolf of Wall Street, which was a very big commercial success and the biggest of Martin Scorsese’s career: more than three million admissions and nearly $ 400 million in revenue worldwide. The film is nominated multiple times at the Oscars and Golden Globes 25 and Margot Robbie is nominated for the MTV Movie Awards as Best Revelation. While its plastic is highlighted in the film, some critics praise its excellent imitation of the Brooklyn accent. The site Awards Daily goes further: “Robbie is funny, hard and plays perfectly in every scene where she is 29.”

Blockbusters and commercial breakthrough

In 2016, Margot Robbie interpreter Jane Porter in Tarzan of David Yates. She is the sixteenth Jane Porter at the movies. In this action film, stunts and special effects, she is often relegated to the background. Critics pout, like Inrocks: “A hygienized jungle, digitized wildlife, the perfectly shaved ape-man [who] smells less of wild desire than eau de Cologne. But this time, the film is not a commercial failure: with 1.4 million admissions, it ranks 41th inbox office in 2016. Following the film, she even made the cover of Vogue US magazine for the month of June, pictured as Jane Porter by the duo Mert and Marcus.

Producer and critical recognition

The following year, the actress carries two independent films, two biopics: the English romance in costume Goodbye Christopher Robin, directed by Simon Curtis, which allows her to reunite with her partner of It was time, Domhnall Gleeson. The reviews are satisfactory. But above all, the actress produces and stars in I Tonya, a black comedy signed Craig Gillespie where the actress plays the skater Tonya Harding. Present in every way, the film relies entirely on her performance as an actress and her character’s relationship with her mother, played by Allison Janney. Critics hailed the actresses’ performances, and Robbie landed her first Oscar nomination for Best Actress.

The following year, she tried to confirm with the indie neo-noir thriller Terminal, written and directed by Vaughn Stein, which she also produced. This European co-production was however exhausted by the critics when it was presented in festivals, and was deprived of a release on American soil. As for the historical biopic Mary Stuart, Queen of Scotland, where the actress plays Queen Elizabeth I, opposite Saoirse Ronan in the role of her cousin Mary Stuart, he received good reviews but goes unnoticed.

Personal Life

Since 2014, she has been in a relationship with British assistant director Tom Ackerley, whom she met on the set of Suite française. Before falling in love, she told Vogue: “I was the ultimate bachelor, the very thought of being in a relationship made me want to throw up. And it fell on me, all of a sudden. We’ve been friends for a very long time. I’ve always been in love with him, but I thought to myself: He will never love you. Don’t make it all weird, Margot. Then it happened and I said to myself: Of course, we’re together. This makes sense.”

Two years later, engagement rumors began to appear after the premiere of the film Tarzan, where she was allegedly seen with a very beautiful ring on her left hand, which aroused the suspicions of several reporters. Then, she spoke about marriage and children with Gala: because, for her, all these projects will materialize when she will have found a certain balance between her private life and her professional life where she has to travel a lot for the filming of her films.

They finally got married on Dec. 19, 2016, in a very intimate ceremony in Byron Bay, Australia. Margot Robbie lived in New York for several years. Then the actress lived in a shared apartment with six of her friends in London, not saying she was then ready to move in alone, the loneliness scaring her. She practices yoga. She also did a lot of sports, especially Pilates, for the needs of the film Suicide Squad.

She particularly shared private photos, as during his fishing trips to the surf, sport in particularly. She is often described as someone who is “uncomfortable with being famous,” as the article in an issue of Vanity Fair describes. But when asked if her reputation precedes accurate that it is incomplete portrait actress.

Often noticed for her beauty and her plasticity, the young woman herself says that she does not worry about her physique and does not go on any diet. She stays natural and likes simplicity. She readily admits wanting to follow in the footsteps of Will Smith, her partner in Focus and Suicide Squad. For her, this is a real example to follow, admiring in particular the respectful and honest nature of the actor as well as his career.
