Gold Coast friends dish on how Hollywood star Margot Robbie is still a laid-back adventurous girl

FORMER Somerset College student turned Hollywood starlet Margot Robbie is very much still the “adventurous, captivating and witty” 23-year-old her Gold Coast friends know and love.

The actress was on home soil briefly before last night’s Brisbane premiere of her new flickThe Wolf of Wall Street, which she stars in alongside Leonardo DiCaprio.

But before Robbie rubbed shoulders on the red carpet with the who’s who of Queensland, the golden girl hosted a special premiere for close friends and family at Robina Gold Class cinema on Sunday night.

Robbie’s high school friends, who dub themselves as the “heccas” – short for hectic – said it was “surreal” watching their bestie on the big screen.

“It was funny watching her act. It was a whole different person and such a different character,” said close mate Aimee Smith. “But when we heard her laugh, it was her real laugh, and we got glimpses of her.

“It was great to have her sitting there – I loved watching her watch herself.”

Smith said Hollywood’s newest star is still “so normal”. “I wondered if she was going to change … but she is still exactly the same,” she said. “She is very adventurous. We will go to the rock pools and she’s the one that jumps off. She’s not a girlie girl.”

Smith said the “captivating” Robbie has always been “such a character”.

“She is so animated – she makes the most boring story interesting,” she said. “Margot is hilarious. She just does the punch line perfectly. She’s quite witty. We have always known she was special.”

And the question on everybody’s lips for the star who’s been reportedly linked to Bradley Cooper and Orlando Bloom: is Robbie a heartbreaker?

“She doesn’t mean to be – but as if you can’t fall in love with her,” said Smith.

It was highly unlikely fame would get to the down-to-earth actress and formerNeighbours star, Smith said.
