While making the caper dramedy Focus, Will Smith and Margot Robbie trained on set with thief expert Apollo Robbins, who taught Smith mind tricks and Robbie how to lift cellphones off unsuspecting production assistants.
It didn’t always go so well.
“I chickened out when I had to do the actual lift and the guy turned around and my hand was in his back pocket,” says Robbie, mimicking her shame. “And it just looked like I was trying to cop a feel. Every time I walked past him in the hallways he’d put his back to the wall.”
Margot Robbie is a beautiful woman who’s undoubtedly heard plenty of pick-up lines in her time. Now she’s offering up some terrible ones of her own, as scripted by Josh Horowitz of MTZ. Watch the video below!
Horowitz handed Robbie a bunch of funny, bizarre come-ons to read for the camera. The Focus actress could barely keep it together as she offered her best spin on gems like: “You won’t regret this. I can eat more Taco Bell than anyone you’ve ever met.”
There was a definite scatological theme to the lines. “Meet me in the bathroom in five minutes,” recited Robbie. “I made a bit of a mess in there and someone needs to go clean up.” She also asked, “How attached are you to your penis, on a scale of 1 to 10?” But our favorite might be, “I bet you’re wondering why I’m smiling so much. You’ll smell it in a second.”
Speaking of pick-up lines, while talking to “Extra” on the Oscars red carpet last week, Robbie mentioned one of her attempts to flirt with a waiter. “I was out to dinner, I was walking out and he’s like, ‘Okay see you later,’ and I was like, ‘Are you gonna call me.’ He’s like, ‘Call you? I don’t have your number,’ and then I grabbed a pen and wrote my number on his arm.” Smooth. Watch some less successful pick-up lines in the MTV video below.
The Australian actress found herself living up to her country’s criminal convict past after getting sprung red-handed pickpocketing.
Margot Robbie revealed on Thursday on Good Morning America, that her efforts to go into character for her new movie led her being caught stealing.
The 24-year-old fessed up to not being as good of a thief as she hoped to become.
Australia’s Margot Robbie has potentially solidified herself a good ten years of upfront work in blockbusters.
The beautiful “Wolf of Wall Street” star was interviewed on the Red Carpet at the Oscars by AZCentral, who asked her about her next gig, that of Harley Quinn in Warner’s stout superhero pic “Suicide Squad”. Not surprisingly, Robbie hinted that she’s had to agree to play the Joker’s girlfriend in more than one movie.
“You don’t need to have commitment issues to be frightened by the fact that you might have just signed 10 years of your life away. … But with her, it’s a character I don’t think would ever get boring. Ever. So if they did Suicide Squad One, Two and Three, I would be over the moon about it.”
MTV also caught up with Robbie at the Oscars, and asked her about whether or not she’s been spending time with Jared Leto (the future ‘Joker’) to get their onscreen chemistry down pat.
She’s one of Hollywood’s hottest young starlets.
But that doesn’t mean Australian actress Margot Robbie is exempt from having to find herself a date.
The confident 24-year-old revealed to Extra host Mario Lopez on the Oscars red carpet on Sunday evening that she doesn’t wait for the guys to come to her.
Hollywood A-lister Margot Robbie debuted a striking new crop on the Oscars red carpet on Sunday night, swapping her trademark long tresses for a modern angular bob.
The Wolf Of Wall Street starlet turned heads as she showcased the blunt cut, revealing its angular nature to the flashing cameras as she brandished her trademark mega watt smile at the 87th Academy Awards, held at the landmark Dobly Theatre.
Opting for sleek simplicity, the 24-year-old Australian’s trademark tumbling locks were reworked into a sharp diagonal cut which featured a graduated front.
Draping her famed physique in a plunging black gown by Yves Saint Laurent, the Australian beauty was all brooding femme fatale, her lips painted a deep blood red.
Speaking on the red carpet the former Neighbours star told Ryan Seacrest, 40: ‘This necklace is worth more than my life’.
Featuring exquisite diamonds and sapphires and a tasseled detailing set in 18K yellow, she revealed: ‘It was created for the Duchess of Windsor or something in the ’30s, I am very lucky to be wearing this.’
Robbie presented the Academy Award for Technical Achievement and the Gordon E. Sawyer Award at this year’s Oscars.
Australian actor Margot Robbie has made quite an impression during an appearance on the British version of Top Gear, nearly crashing into a cameraman while completing the show’s celebrity time trial.
The Wolf of Wall Street star was behind the wheel of a Vauxhall Astra for the show’s Star in a Reasonably Priced Car segment when she spun out on a turn and came close to hitting the camera operator.
No one was injured, and 24-year-old Robbie was allowed to start the course again.
However, it wasn’t all bad news for Robbie, who was appearing on the show alongside Men in Black star Will Smith to promote their new film, Focus.
Despite the shaky start, Robbie still managed to beat Smith by one tenth of a second, completing the course in an impressive one minute and 47.1 seconds, and earning seventh place on the show’s leaderboard. She was also gifted a broken runway light which she destroyed with her driving.
The ‘Star in a Reasonably Priced Car’ is a weekly segment on Top Gear.
A new leaderboard is started when a new “reasonably priced car” is introduced. The show’s celebrity guests have been racing in the Astra since 2013, and 21 celebrities have taken the challenge in the manual car (with the exception of singer Ed Sheeran and comedian Jack Whitehall, who both asked to complete their lap in an automatic).
Robbie isn’t the only Australian sitting towards the top of the leaderboard. Fellow actor Hugh Jackman is currently placed fourth, with a time of one minute and 46.7 seconds.
