The little-known Australian actress conquered the world after the role of Naomi Lapilli in the acclaimed film by Martin Scorsese “The Wolf of Wall Street”. Winner of two Oscar nominations (for the films “Tonya Against All” and “Scandal”). In popular culture, she is remembered for her role as Harley Quinn, the Joker’s girlfriend from the DC movie universe.
CHILDHOOD AND FAMILY
Margot Robbie was born on the Gold Coast of Australia, in the coastal town of Gold Coast, which is a famous tourist destination. But the girl spent all her childhood on her grandparents’ farm in the small provincial town of Dolby. The father, farmer Mike Robbie, left the family, and Sari Kessler had to raise four children herself – the eldest Lachlan, Margo, the younger Cameron, and the baby Anya.
After the divorce of her parents, Margo did not maintain contact with her father, an example for the girl was her mother. At school, Margot attended almost all clubs – from rowing to dancing, from theater productions to softball. Later, her passion became surfing: she could spend hours on the beach to catch a wave for a moment.
On vacation, the mother sent the children to the farm, so at the age of 10 little Margot was able to chop wood and milk cows. But secretly from everyone, she always dreamed of shining under the spotlights.
After graduating from high school, Robbie attended Somerset Private College. To support her mother, who was torn between home, children, and the hospital, Margo got a job at the age of 16: a waitress, a maid, and a saleswoman in a small shop on the beach. She managed to save some money, which she used to buy a ticket to Melbourne and pay the first installment for acting courses. On the south coast, the girl was not happy: during the day she studied, then ran to endless rehearsals and castings, and in the evening put on the uniform of a sandwich seller in the “Subway” to be able to pay for training.
Margot’s first roles were so insignificant that her name did not even appear in the captions. But they were enough to be noticed in 2007 by the famous Australian director Aash Aron, who offered Robbie the lead role in his new thriller “I See You”.
2008 was a really happy year for Margot. She got a casting for the series “Neighbors”, which has been successfully broadcast on Australian TV since 1985. The girl did not hope to get a role, so immediately after the casting she ran with her boyfriend on a five-week vacation to the other side of the world – the lovers flew to Canada to go snowboarding. Before conquering the Canadian peaks, Margot received an SMS informing her that she was now Donna Friedman, one of the new characters in the popular series. Two days later, Robbie was back in Australia.
Margo spent almost three years filming at the soap opera, spending 17 hours a day 5 days a week under the camera. The last episode with her participation was released on January 26, 2011. The role of a fashion designer brought the actress two nominations for the prestigious Australian Logie Awards.
In 2011, Margot Robbie went to conquer Hollywood. But here no one was waiting for the Australian with open arms, and endless castings began again. The actress auditioned for the role of Abby Sampson in the series “Charlie’s Angels”, but the producers preferred Rachel Taylor.
In 2012, Richard Curtis offered Margo a role in the film “Boyfriend of the Future”, and a year later the talent of the young Australian won over Martin Scorsese. Who the famous director will choose for the role of “hot blonde” in his new project “Wolf of Wall Street”, all Hollywood wondered.
Margot sent Martin her portfolio without much hope and, as with the Neighbors, flew to another continent, Britain, to celebrate the Queen’s “diamond” anniversary. That same evening, the girl received a message – the next day she had to come to New York to audition with Martin Scorsese and Leonardo DiCaprio. When casting manager Ellen Lewis saw what the actress was up to (it was ripped jeans and ballet flats), she immediately sent her to the store for “the sexiest short dress and high-heeled shoes.”
Leo improvised at rehearsals, and Margo had to adjust. When in one of the scenes DiCaprio said after another family fight: “You should be happy to have a husband like me. Now come here and kiss me. ”Robbie was not confused. And although she really wanted to kiss the actor, who had been her idol since childhood, she came up and slapped him loudly, even though it wasn’t in the script. After that, Scorsese had no doubt who would play Jordan Belfort’s wife. At the premiere of “The Wolf of Wall Street” in Australia, the actress invited all relatives, except grandparents – Margot was worried that they will not tolerate the participation of his beloved granddaughter in erotic scenes. The star went out on the red carpet with his mother. After collaborating with Martin Scorsese, Margot was talked about; she began appearing on the covers of glossy magazines, in particular “Esquire”, and reached the top of the ratings of the sexiest stars in Hollywood.
In 2014, the geography of the actress’ work expanded – she starred in the film “French Suite” co-produced by Britain, France, and Belgium. 2015 was also a busy year: three pictures with Robbie appeared on the big screens: “Z means Zechariah”, “Game of Thrones” and “Focus”, and the young star gained experience working with Ryan Gosling, Christian Bale, and Will Smith.
Fans are looking forward to the release of new films with her, especially anticipating the premiere of the adventure blockbuster “Tarzan”, where Robbie’s filming partners were Alexander Skarsgård and Samuel L. Jackson, and the superhero film “Suicide Squad” with Margot Robbie and Jay, already well known to the girl in the movie “Focus”, as well as a friend of the actress Kara Delevan.
The film “Suicide Squad” disappointed most viewers: the Joker turned out to be faded, the stories of the characters – blurred. Everyone but Harley Quinn. Her heroine turned out to be so bright and memorable that the next Halloween costume “under Harley” – painted in pink and blue ponytails, short shorts, and a baseball bat in her hands – became the most popular
Margot Robbie received her first Oscar nomination for her starring role in the biographical drama Tonya Against All. And although the statuette went to Francis MacDonald, the film about Tone Harding, a scandalous figure skater who is ready to play dishonestly and break other people’s destinies for the sake of victory, received high marks.
viewers and critics.
Margo still considers everything that happens in her life to be a dream: “I have to pinch myself every now and then to make sure I’m not sleeping. I understand perfectly well what a strong position I hold. ” The three whales of her success, the actress calls professional ethics, developed instincts and a team that can be relied on.

After moving to Los Angeles, the actress met a certain Mark, a college student, but, apparently, this relationship was short-lived, as in 2012 the press “brought” Robbie and DiCaprio. The New York Post reported that the most coveted bachelor in Hollywood spent the night in the actress’ apartment, but the stars of “The Wolf of Wall Street” refused to comment on this information.

Many viewers, especially females, complained that, although Robbie often appears in the frame, her heroine has very few lines. This is not the first time Tarantino has heard accusations of sexism, and he has responded to all accusations: “This is your conjecture.” Margo answered: “But I am often alone in the frame! I will not talk to myself. In addition, it is a great opportunity to honor the memory of Sharon – without words.
