Margot Robbie Would Like to Move in to the Esquire Apartment

A walking, piano-playing, clothes-stealing tour of our new pad in Brooklyn, courtesy of the lovely star of ABC’s Pan Am, who’s welcome back anytime

Perhaps you don’t have an apartment like ours. Perhaps it doesn’t have a view, from the top three floors of a clock-tower building, of all of Manhattan and Brooklyn, views of commuting cars crossing the Manhattan, Brooklyn, and Williamsburg Bridges from a box of glass. And perhaps the absurdly beautiful actress Margot Robbie, from Pan Am, isn’t exploring this apartment with you in a sequined dress with genuine wide-eyed enthusiasm that’s only elevated by eyes so immense they envelope everything around her. That doesn’t mean you don’t know what we’re saying when we say that’s it’s not half bad. It’s fantastic, actually.

This year’s Esquire Apartment, in Brooklyn’s DUMBO neighborhood, is, as with the seven before it, host to the world’s best designers and a number of parties for philanthropic causes — the Fresh Air Fund, the International Medical Corps, City of Hope. But for the purposes of an introduction, it was host the other day to Margot Robbie. Robbie playing the piano in the Great Room. Robbie trying on our jackets in the Master Bedroom. Robbie playing our Angus Young SG Signature Gibson guitar. Robbie tweeting our projected “5th Clock” in the Digital Loft, a projected compendium of everything social media. Whatever that is. Robbie projected as a hologram on the walls (not picture above, but, yeah: really). If you ever happen to find yourself owning an apartment like this (we’re just leasing it for the fall), you should hope that it comes with such bells and whistles. Even if it’s just a hologram.

‘Pan Am’ actresses share portrait of women empowerment in the 1960’s

Pan Am might be a hit television show on ABC, but for the ladies who once worked for the real airlines in the 1960’s it was a way of life in a different time. The actresses who portray some of those women were on The View Thursday morning discussing the time the hit show is set and how different it was compared to 2011.

The four main characters, all stewardesses from the show shared how the conception of the show is different than what most people think of stewardesses. Christina Ricci, Kelli Garner, Margot Robbie, and Karine Vanasse each shared how the hit show has really struck a chord for women globally.

“It shows just how these women were empowered. Back in the 60’s in a society where that was so difficult to branch out and lead their lives the way they wanted to do it. It is really amazing,” said Margot Robbie.

Robbie wasn’t the only one who questioned whether there was an actual story in the pilot of the idea. Christina Ricci also didn’t think much of the idea until she was introduced to how the ladies who took care of the passengers did more than look pretty.

“I had the common misconception in my head,” said Christina Ricci. “When I heard what was actually required of these Pan Am stewardesses. They had to be college educated and know many languages and everything else. It was like wow his totally blows my misconceptions out of the water.”

Fans around the globe couldn’t agree more as the series isn’t just a hit in America. Strong numbers are coming from other countries who love watching the weekly program as well.

Take a look at the four primary actresses discussing their jobs to share the real empowerment found when being a stewardess on Pan Am Airlines.

Where Is Pan Am Headed Next? The girls Reveal Destinations, Twists and Mile-High Passions

There is so much to love about ABC’s Sunday drama Pan Am, and we’re giving you first-class access to this season’s plot-twists and love interests. (Be warned, we’re going to be experiencing some slight turbulence via airplane puns.)

We recently went to the set of Pan Am and talked to the ladies about what life was like for those stewardesses in 1963: the adventures, the men, and of course the fashion. Plus, the always-adorable Christina Ricci reveals how she’s fooling all of America…

“I’m actually not tall enough to be a Pan Am flight attendant, so the other girls wear kitten heels on the flight and I wear full high heels to try and trick the audience,” Ricci tells us with a smile. Quite the sinister and evil minx, right? Well, she certainly fooled us!

If you’ve been following Pan Am like we have, then you already know that the foursome has been to London, Paris, and Berlin. So the only question left is: Where will they be landing later this season?

Margot Robbie, who plays newbie flight attendant Laura, reveals to us that Pan Am will be jet-setting to Rome at the time of the second Vatican Council. “There are a lot of nuns and priests on the plane with us, and there’s a funny storyline with this passionate couple in a lavatory.” Robbie says, “Laura is stuck with all that, so it’s really funny.”
