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.
Calvin Klein has tapped Margot Robbie as the face of its soon-to-launch Deep Euphoria women’s fragrance.
The fragrance, the third of the Euphoria range, is slated for release in the fall and billed by Calvin Klein as the “more modern, empowered sister” to the existing two fragrances.
The 25-year-old actress, who attended the Met Ball Monday night dressed in a white silk crepe Calvin Klein strapless dress with cutouts, will appear in the global print and television advertising campaign for Deep Euphoria that will roll out in August. It’s the first time Robbie has fronted a fragrance brand.
It’s going to be a big summer for the actress who rose to star status after appearing in “The Wolf of Wall Street” in 2013. Robbie will star as Jane Porter in this summer’s highly anticipated “The Legend of Tarzan,” as well as “Suicide Squad.”
“The addition of Deep Euphoria to our diverse and comprehensive portfolio will fuel the development and innovation to continue driving the Calvin Klein Fragrance business,” said Vincent Brun, senior vice president of global marketing of Calvin Klein Fragrances, Coty Inc., which holds the Calvin Klein fragrance license. Brun added that Robbie “perfectly embodies the modern femininity” of the scent.
The original Euphoria debuted in 2005, with a follow-up, Endless Euphoria, nine years later. Russian supermodel Natalia Vodianova was the face of the first Euphoria campaign and model Vanessa Axente the face of Endless Euphoria.
“Her [Robbie’s] beauty and talent is an expression of the incredible legacy of women who have been captured in Calvin Klein campaigns over the years,” said Melisa Goldie, chief marketing officer of Calvin Klein Inc.
Robbie hosted a dinner Tuesday night in New York at the Calvin Klein Collection store to celebrate the new scent.
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.
MTV announced today that a Suicide Squad sneak peek will be shown on the MTV Movie Awards on Sunday, April 10. Will Smith, Jared Leto, Margot Robbie and Cara Delevingne will be present to debut the clip. You can watch a tease of the Suicide Squad sneak peek in the player below.

Created by Robert Kanigher and Ross Andru back in 1959, the Suicide Squad team has included countless DC villains among its ranks, including Deadshot, Captain Boomerang, Bane, Killer Frost, Poison Ivy, Count Vertigo, Deathstroke, and Harley Quinn. The CW’s “Arrow” introduced their own version of the team in the most recent season of the series and the recent animated film, Batman: Assault on Arkham, offered another version of the team. Directed by David Ayer, Suicide Squad is scheduled for release on August 5, 2016.
EXCLUSIVE: Margot Robbie has come attached to I, Tonya, a script by Steven Rogers about the crazy story of Tonya Harding. Remember her? She was the ice princess who emerged from a poor upbringing and rough childhood in Portland, OR to rise to the top of the sport of figure skating with a ferocious determination and athleticism that allowed her to become the first American woman to complete the triple axel in major competitions. That propelled her to victory in the 1991 U.S. Figure Skating Championships and second in the World Championships.
I, Tonya is being produced by Bryan Unkeless and his Clubhouse Pictures. Robbie also is coming aboard in a producing capacity through her LuckyChap Entertainment banner. Unkeless also is producing Bright, the Max Landis-scripted David Ayer-directed Will Smith-Joel Edgerton pic that just sold in a massive sale to Netflix. There is no director on I, Tonya yet, but Robbie is taking it upon herself to find a filmmaker to build this project around herself. Financiers also are circling.
Depending on how it’s done, it has the potential to be another To Die For, the Gus Van Sant-directed film that starred Nicole Kidman in a tale of naked ambition and the price for fame. Rogers wrote his script after doing extensive interviews with both Harding and Gillooly, capturing the absurdity of what happened but also the tragic part of the Harding saga, and trying to come from nothing to prominence in a sport where most of the competitors are the children of wealthy families that can afford all the ice time and trainers needed to get to that high a level.
Robbie has shown a propensity for taking risks, which led to her breakout turn in The Wolf Of Wall Street. She next stars in the Warner Bros summer pic Suicide Squad in a cast that includes her Focus star Smith, and she also stars this summer in The Legend Of Tarzan. She most recently starred opposite Tina Fey in Whisky Tango Foxtrot. She is repped by CAA, Management 360, Australia-based Aran Michael Management and Jackoway, Tyerman. Rogers is repped by Gersh and Grandview.
