Margot Robbie in talks to star in film about Playboy tycoon Hugh Hefner.

Margot Robbie is in talks to star in a film about Hugh Hefner – years after turning down his offer to appear in Playboy.

Hefner, who died last month aged 91, was a huge fan of the Hollywood actress and wanted her to appear in his magazine, saying: “She should be in Playboy! Send her a message!”

At the time Margot declined and said she had “put her family through enough”. But now she is in talks with director Brett Ratner to play one of Hef’s wives in new film Rush Hour alongside her Suicide Squad co-star Jared Leto, who will play the US tycoon.

A source said: “Margot turned the offer down before but this is different. She’s considering it.”

Jared is also keen to secure a top role in the film for Margot, who starred in The Wolf of Wall Street with Leonardo DiCaprio.

The film source added: “Jared is working on the movie with his buddy Brett and they’re really pushing for Margot to have a major role. She’s perfect for a part and he’s not going to give up until she accepts.”

Hugh was married three times – first to student Mildred Williams in 1949, who had two children with him, then in 1989 to Playmate of the Year Kimberley Conrad, 36 years his junior.

She had two sons with him before they split in 1998. In 2012 he married Playmate of the Month Crystal Harris.

It is not clear which of the wives Margot would play.

Margot Robbie Plays It Cool For W’s Newest Cover.

In the new biopic, I, Tonya, Margot Robbie goes against type to play someone who is the opposite of the bombshells she’s portrayed until now in films like Wolf of Wall Street, Focus and the Legend of Tarzan. Instead, she inhabits ice queen Tonya Harding, and it’s not pretty. Here’s why that’s a good thing: For her fearless, uninhibited performance, Robbie is getting some of the best reviews of her career, so good, in fact, the role may lead her to her first Academy Award nomination. She tells Lynn Hirschberg why the character stayed with her: “The more I became Tonya, the more I saw things from her point of view. I’m on her side 100 percent,” she says. “I don’t think she did anything but be different from what the world wanted. There are cool misfits, and then there is Tonya. She didn’t fit in. And I love that.” For her new W cover story, Robbie was photographed by Craig McDean and styled by Melanie Ward in cool-as-ever fall looks, from Calvin Klein to a sleek Nili Lotan jumpsuit. As Hirschberg writes, with her blond hair and engaged manner, “she can’t help but shine.”
