Margot Robbie was born on Australia’s Gold Coast, in the coastal town of the Gold Coast, which is a famous tourist destination. But all her childhood was spent on her grandparents’ farm in the small provincial town of Dolby. Her father – farmer Mike Robbie – left the family, and Sari Kessler had to raise her four children – the older Lachlan, Margot, the younger Cameron, and baby Anya.
After the divorce of her parents, Margot had no contact with her father, and her mother became an example for the girl. She was a physical therapist and worked first with the elderly and later with children with disabilities
At school, Margo attended almost all clubs – from rowing to dancing, from drama to softball. Surfing later became her passion: she could disappear for hours on the beach to catch a wave for a moment
On vacations, her mother sent the children to the farm, so already at age 10 little Margo knew how to chop wood and milk cows. But secretly from everyone else, she always dreamed of shining under the spotlight
After high school, Robbie went to a private college in Somerset. To support her mother, who was torn between home, children and hospital, Margot was 16 years old when she took three jobs: a waitress, a maid and a salesgirl in a small store on the beach. She managed to put aside some money, on which she bought a ticket to Melbourne and paid the first fee for acting classes. On the south coast, the girl was not easy: in the day she studied, then ran to endless auditions and castings, and in the evening put on a uniform of a sandwich vendor at the Subway, to be able to pay for training
The beginning of an artistic career
At the start of her acting career, Robbie got along without an agent, about the news in the world of cinema learned from ads or fellow students. Sometimes the casting was successful, but the role was so small that the girl’s name was not mentioned in the credits. Nevertheless, director Aash Aaron, who shot the thriller “I See You”, noticed a countrywoman and offered to play in the foreground in the company of James Dean and Christian Redford.
Then Margot came to the casting of the popular Australian series “Neighbors”, and after the trial, confident in failure, she flew to Canada for a vacation. Vacation was interrupted by the news that she was approved for the role of Donna Friedman. For almost 3 years, Robbie starred in a sitcom, spending 17-18 hours on the set five days a week. For playing in “Neighbors,” the aspiring actress won two awards at once.
Moving to the U.S.
In January 2011, the shooting ended and Robbie decided she was ready to become a Hollywood star. The girl went to America, where an icy reception awaited her. Margot auditioned from morning till night but in vain. Finally, she was offered to be a stewardess in the TV drama “Pan American” about the life of the airline of the same name. True, the first season turned out to be a failure, so the project was closed. But it is this role that Robbie herself considers the start in Hollywood. Directors noticed the pretty blonde.
Already in 2012, the actress starred in the sci-fi drama “Boyfriend from the Future”. And, finally, the brightest event in Margot’s biography – “The Wolf of Wall Street”, a five-time Oscar nominee and the best film of the year according to the American Film Institute.
After “The Wolf,” Robbie woke up famous. Photo actress appeared on the covers of fashion magazines, directors vied with each other offering to participate in new projects.

Margot has a seductive figure (with a height of 164 cm and weighs 54 kg). She does not think it’s shameful to appear in a swimsuit, lingerie or even without anything, it’s just a facet of the profession. In addition to “The Wolf of Wall Street”, candid shots of Robbie abound in the films “Z for Zachariah”, “Focus”, “French Suite”.
In 2016, Robbie appeared as Joker’s girlfriend Harley Quinn in the blockbuster Suicide Squad, which grossed $750 million at the box office. The film about the supervillains of the DC Extended Universe also starred Will Smith, Jai Courtney, Cara Delevingne and Jared Leto. The film won one Oscar.
At the same time, the adventure film “Tarzan. Legend.” Margot played the role of Jane Porter, the wife of the main character, Tarzan (Alexander Skarsgard). The spectacular film was highly praised by film critics and grossed $350 million at the box office.
No less interesting for the filmography of the actress was the image of Elizabeth I in the drama “Mary – Queen of Scots” (“Two Queens”). Before each shooting, Robbie imposed difficult makeup, which has turned a beautiful blonde beauty in a woman with sparse red hair, with a face disfigured by smallpox. Margot was not embarrassed by the change in appearance, because it is a chance to break the stereotype that the pretty girl is good only for brutal men’s girlfriends. The role of Mary Stewart was played by Sirsha Ronan.
Robbie was to play the wife of Leonardo DiCaprio’s character, a dodgy stockbroker. Leo improvised a lot on the set, but Margot was not lost. When a partner asked him to kiss her, she rolled a resounding slap (in the script was not it). Resourcefulness actress conquered the director: Martin Scorsese had no doubt that he had found the one whom he was looking for.
As if wishing to diversify the role of model beauty, Margot has become a monster from the sketch com “Librarian. In the frames of the picture, released in 2019, she gets rid of her wig and dentures in front of astonished visitors to the library. Part of the audience admitted that they experienced disgust. Dentists appreciated the joke, saying it was a great advertisement for removable dentures, which change a person so much.
In February 2020, the biographical drama “Scandal” was released, starring Margot in the company of her famous compatriot Nicole Kidman and South African-born Charlize Theron. The film is based on the events, including those that started the #Metoo anti-harassment movement. In preparation for her role, Robbie set up a secret Twitter account to monitor the profiles of female far-right supporters.
