Margot Robbie has officially made it.
The 25-year-old Australian actress appears on her very first Vogue cover, via the magazine’s June 2016 issue. It’s a major coupe for any woman in the entertainment industry, to be sure, though Robbie previously thought she’d “made it” in Hollywood after people started spelling her name correctly. After all, it can be spelled in a variety of ways—Margaux, Margo, Margot. “I always said, ‘Mom—there was a really cool way of spelling my name, and you picked the boring way that gets everyone confused. They forget the T or call me Mar-got,'” the Legend of Tarzan star explains. “Now everyone’s finally spelling my name right—that’s how I knew I’d made it.”

The cover star of Oyster #108: The Origins Issue is Margot Robbie, an actor who needs little introduction for anyone who grew up on a nightly dose of Neighbours or caught a little film called The Wolf of Wall Street.
Writer Sarah Nicole Prickett sat down with Margot in LA to play a game of M.A.T.C.H. during which details about Margot’s mum, tea preference and versatile laugh emerged. Read an excerpt from the story below and grab a copy of the May issue for the whole enchilada.

MARIE CLAIRE: You were circling this part for a while. What kept you so interested?
MARGOT ROBBIE: I was hoping to play a role really different to the roles I d been playing before that, and I was also hoping to film on a much smaller scale than the ones I d been doing. I’d just wrapped on Focus when we did Z for Zachariah and a lot of the films I d done before that had big plot points and huge locations. When you do an indie film you have a much smaller budget so you have less time to shoot it in and I think the time pressure can get the best out of you. I was so hoping that they would give me a chance!
From Ramsay Street to the Oscars red carpet, Robbie’s star is burning brighter than ever before.
With her sci-fi thriller, Z For Zachariah, releasing on DVD this January, we caught up with Aussie soap star-come-good Margot Robbie.
You play a woman who survives in solitude and has quite a challenging existence on the land. Did you feel like this was a role you could easily step into considering where you grew up [in the Gold Coast, and on her grandparent’s farm]?
Yeah there were definitely parts of the character that resonated with me more than any other of the characters I’ve played before, definitely the landscape and just being out on property and stuff felt more like home than shooting in New York, for example. But the solitude part was something kind of foreign to me. I grew up in a very big bustling family and these days I’m always on sets which are with lots of people; and I live with a bunch of people and I’m not really ever on my own. So it was very… it was a bit of a shock to the system to go straight from doing a whole bunch of filming and press to be suddenly in the middle of nowhere in New Zealand. It was a really isolated location which worked perfectly for the film but it was definitely a shock to the system. I think that if I was ever in Ann’s position I think that’s the thing I would definitely struggle with the most is just being on your own, it’s something I’m really not used to.
The latest issue of Empire magazine (via Coming Soon) features new photos of the “Suicide Squad,” the band of DC comics villains.
Jared Leto is gracing the cover as The Joker, which he previously told Billboard is a “nearly Shakespearean character … [He’s] this beautiful disaster of a character — what a big challenge.”
Inside the magazine, readers get a glimpse of Cara Delevingne’s Enchantress, Margot Robbie’s Harley Quinn, Viola Davis as Amanda Waller and more.
The film’s plot is being kept under wraps so far, with mystery roles played by Common, Scott Eastwood, Ike Barinholtz, David Harbour, Jim Parrack, Corina Calderon and Raymond Olubowale.
Good and evil collided at The Hollywood Reporter’s exclusive Comic-Con photo shoot with the directors and stars of Warner Bros.’ upcoming DC Comics adaptations.
Jared Leto went very method when it came to sending gifts to his Suicide Squad co-stars, including giving a live rat to co-star Margot Robbie, who plays Harley Quinn to Leto’s Joker.
Now, in a new interview with Elle magazine, Robbie reveals that she’s kept the rat as a pet — and even named it.
The rat is called Rat Rat (“Original!” the actress quipped). Several crew members suggested killing it, the magazine’s August cover story says, but Robbie decided to keep it because, “If Harley got something from Joker, she’d probably cherish it.”
Rat Rat, the article adds, “now dines on organic berries from Whole Foods.” Ah, the life of a celebrity pet.
Suicide Squad arrives in theaters Aug. 5, 2016. You can see some photos from Robbie’s Elle shoot below, and head to the magazine’s website for more from her interview. The August issue hits newsstands July 21.
