Margot Robbie plays infamous figure skater Tonya Harding in “I, Tonya,” while Sebastian Stan plays Harding’s nearly-as-infamous ex-husband Jeff Gillooly. The Times spoke with the actors at the Toronto International Film Festival, where “I, Tonya” made its world premiere, about bringing the real-life couple’s highly unconventional love story to the screen.
Margot Robbie and Cara Delevingne are now co-stars of Love Magazine’s new issue, as well as upcoming movie “Suicide Squad.”
The two stars were photographed by Willy Vanderperre for Katie Grand’s LOVE16’s latest issue.
“The first concert I ever went to was The Belle Stars. I remember my outfit vividly: white off-the-shoulder cut-off sweatshirt from Way In at Harrods, pale pink pleated skirt with dark pink stripes from Dorothy Perkins and white flat pointed winkle-picker shoes with a dark and pale pink heel and matching bow detail from Birmingham Market. Jo Parker had peroxide blonde hair and wore the opposite: pink top, white pleated skirt from Topshop,” Grand said.
“We were everything, we knew the words to every Belle Stars song and we could take on the world. Generally we would tie bits of tat in our hair and pull our tops off our shoulders and pout A LOT. So the thing is, strangely this issue is an ode to my young teenage years. Cara and Margot ARE me and Jo Parker, and it’s no coincidence that Miranda Joyce — previously the foxy sax player in The Belle Stars — did the make-up,” the magazine’s editor-in-chief and and stylist added.
Robbie appears in the new issue sporting a printed wool jumper by Balenciaga, a striped Vetements shirt and more. Delevingne was styled in a blue striped men’s shirt by Vivienne Westwood, pearl necklace by Miu Miu, round sunglasses by Marc Jacobs and more. Syd Hayes was responsible for the stars’ hair, and their make-up was done by Miranda Joyce.
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.
WEST HOLLYWOOD, CALIF. — Margot Robbie came racing into the tucked-away bungalow she was renting here. She had returned from recording the voice of a talking dingo for a DreamWorks animated movie, and on an April afternoon was doing her best to clean up strewn clothes from overstuffed suitcases — evidence that an intended one-week visit to Los Angeles had stretched into a month.
“I’m sorry it’s so manic,” said this 25-year-old actress, who was born in Gold Coast, Australia, and lives in London, yet had not seen either city in a very long time.
“I’m always like, ‘No, it will calm down next week,’” she said in a more relaxed moment, stretched across a patio couch next to a faded pillow that said “God Save the Queen.”
“And then the following week ends up being crazier.”
Ms. Robbie was on the latest leg of the globe-trotting journey that has consumed her since 2013. It began at roughly the moment that a worldwide audience discovered her in Martin Scorsese’s “The Wolf of Wall Street,” playing the no-nonsense lover-turned-wife of an unscrupulous broker played by Leonardo DiCaprio.
