10 Things You Probably Didn’t Know About Margot Robbie

Margot Robbie is about as 10 out of 10 as they come. A smokin’ Hollywood babe that’s entertaining a hint of Aussie bogan, she’s definitely the gal we’re proud to claim as our own (and kinda want to be).

And while you probably know a few things about her (like the fact she knows how to make a man swing from the trees or taunt them on a nursery floor) – we’ve pulled together a list of the 10 things that you might not already know… Cat’s out of the bag…

She’s actually genuinely down to earth…

You know those celebrities that people say are really down to earth as they fly their helicopters to work with their security guards, personal fitness instructor and chef – while their nanny looks after the kids at the mansion? Well, that is not Margot. She may be one of Hollywood ‘it’ girls, but if you saw Margot walking down the streets – you could be forgiven for thinking she was just a normal average lass. A very beautiful average lass – but there are no OTT statements of grandeur to be found. In fact, her fave hobbies are about as far away as you can get from glamour – we’re talking surfing, hunting wild pigs, riding motorbikes, and building cubbies. She’s definitely the girl version of Chris Hemsworth.

She cold-called her way onto Neighbours…

After managing to talk her way into getting an audition for the show, Margot believed she’d blown it – and so went off holidaying to Canada (but then quickly returned after learning she’d got the role of Donna Freedman). While originally meant to be a guest role, Margot was so impressive that producers decided to make her a regular – seeing her stay on for the next 3 years. Guess they got a whiff of her star potential…

That rig comes with hard work…

Ever looked at Margot’s body and cursed yourself for not having that perfect shape? Well, does it make you feel better that she has to actually train rather hard to get it? Sure makes me feel better. An example of this is for a role in Suicide Squad. Her trainer at the time, Andie Hecker, tells People.com that Margot was working out for three hours a day in the lead up with gruelling sessions of Pilates, ballet and non-bulking cardio (think jump rope, rebounder, and ballet jumps). So while I’d kill to have a bangin’ bod like hers – I actually don’t really want to kill myself for it… Dayum.

She met her hubby Tom Ackerley before Wolf of Wall Street…

Margot met Tom in 2013 while filming Suite Francaise – a movie in which Tom was the assistant director and Margot was playing a supporting role. She had not yet filmed the Wolf of Wall Street (which turned her into the megastar she is today) – and despite every man and his dog wanting to get a piece of her these days, it was actually Margot that originally pursued Tom. Yehr boiiii.

She’s still good friends with her high school clique…

Spending her high school years at the private Somerset College on the Gold Coast, Margot had a super tight clique of girls – and they all still remain really close. And yes, they were in attendance at her wedding to Tom.

She owns a production company called Lucky Chap Productions…

If starring in some of the biggest blockbuster Hollywood films wasn’t enough to keep her on her toes – Margot also runs a production company with Tom. And it looks set to be just as successful as her movie career – with the company recently clinching a 2 year “first look” deal with Warner Bros TV and already selling its first project to NBC, a show called Shattered Glass. Boom.

She went to trapeze school…

How many 8-year-olds say they want to be in the circus? Probably about a million… And how many actually go and do anything about it? Ummm, not so much. Except for little Margot. When she was 8, Margot’s mum enrolled her in a trapeze program at circus school. And that, my friends – was a star in the making…

She played amateur ice hockey…

While she’s admitted she wasn’t very good at it, Margot took up ice hockey when she moved to the US – joining an amateur team as right wing. No stranger to a hockey stick – having grown up playing field hockey, she has revealed her ice skating may have let her down.

She was roomies with Christina Ricci…

I love when I hear of Hollywood celebs bunking in together. It’s just so… well… normal. Starring with Christina Ricci in the comedy series Pan Am between 2011 and 2012, the two took their work status to the next level by becoming flatmates.

She worked at Subway…

Before catching her television break, Margot used to work in the local surf shop, cleaning houses, and making sandwiches at Subway. Yep, she was one of those people you kind of feel sorry for as they ask you what bread you’d like with your Chicken Teriyaki. But after quitting there in 2007, Subway later asked her to star in a commercial for them where she got the chance to really give the finger to those managers who made her do the Saturday night shifts while her girl gang went out to partay.
