Margot recently appeared for a second time on Jimmy Kimmel, just before her 26th birthday.
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.

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.
Another tables turned sort of interview, this time with Shawn Edwards.
Margot Robbie Confused Prince Harry for Ed Sheeran at a Party and Plays The Whisper Challenge With Jimmy Fallon.
On The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon Tuesday night, Australian actress Margot Robbie told the comedian about the time Prince Harry followed her and some friends into a photo booth at a housewarming party in London hosted by the model Suki Waterhouse.
In her defense, “He wasn’t wearing a crown,” she told Fallon, so “I don’t know it’s a prince.”
She claims she told the royal that she thought he was another fair-skinned redhead, singer Ed Sheeran, and “he got really offended.”
Margot Robbie can whisper, but can’t necessarily read lips.
The Whiskey Tango Foxtrot actress stopped by Tuesday’s Tonight Show to play a few rounds of The Whisper Challenge, in which she and Jimmy Fallon take turns guessing random names and phrases while wearing noise-canceling headphones.
Robbie nailed her phrase deliveries to Fallon, but had trouble reading his lips whenever he said “Bondi Beach” and “Labradoodle.”

Hey guys, just acouple of interviews been posted, one which turn the tables on reporter Ashley Dvorkin. The girls have done thier research.
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.
Actress Margot Robbie has admitted that she was intimidated by Jared Leto’s Joker when she started working with him.
“At first it was kind of confronting but now I’m so used to it, I think if I ever saw him out of makeup now I would be really confused,” she said in an interview with The New York Daily News.
“Actually, I saw him out of makeup once and I was actually petrified of him,” she said. “I was too scared to go up and didn’t know who that person was, and when he got back into his makeup I was far more comfortable.”
According to Robbie, playing a villain can be a lot of fun. Especially for her, as her character Harley Quinn is known for being eccentric and erratic.
“I guess the one common denominator is we’re all bad guys, it just makes everything more fun that way,” she said. “The scenes are more interesting I feel, when you just don’t know how the characters are going to react, especially with Harley, who’s absolutely nuts… she’s either going to kill you or laugh and give you a hug.”
Suicide Squad is Robbie’s first comic-book adaptation, but things could have turned out very differently for her as far as super-powered roles go. The actress says she was up for the role of Sue Storm in the recent bomb Fantastic Four (though the part ultimately went to Kate Mara).
“I didn’t really resonate with the script, and I haven’t seen the movie, so I don’t really know how it turned out different from the page,” she said. “But I had a great meeting with the director (Josh Trank) and I really enjoyed that. I guess it’s part of the game: Sometime[s] you win some, sometimes you lose some.”
Suicide Squad recently wrapped filming and will open in theaters on August 5, 2016.
