Margot Robbie is featured in the December/January issue of Harper’s Bazaar! We have added the beautiful outtakes from the issue along with the cover to the gallery! We will add scans as soon as we get the issue!

The actress talks launching her own production company and the “alienating” experience of making her latest movie.

There were days when Margot Robbie would walk out of the makeup trailer on the set of her new film, Mary Queen of Scots, and castmates couldn’t bear to look at her. I’d say, ‘Hey, how’s your weekend?’ ” says the 28-year-old actress, in her best exaggeration of her native Australian Gold Coast accent. “But they wouldn’t even get close to me. It was very alienating. And I felt very lonely. It was an interesting social experiment.

Her transformation into Queen Elizabeth I, who was scarred by smallpox as a young woman, took three and a half hours of intensive hair and makeup every day. “They’d start with a head wrap,” says Robbie. “Gelling and pinning my hair down. Then we’d do a bald cap.” There were different wigs for different stages of the story and her illness, one that was very thinning, and prosthetic scarring applied to her face. “Surprisingly, the quick part was the white makeup,” she says. “And the heavily drawn-on blush, eyebrows, lips.

Such a transformation was no small feat, considering that the actress got her big-screen break playing a character described as “the hottest blonde ever” in Martin Scorsese’s 2013 drama, The Wolf of Wall Street. But Robbie, who currently serves as a face of Chanel, refused early on to be typecast by her beauty. “When I was trying to make my name as an actress, creative roles for women were limited,” she says of her decision to form her own production company, LuckyChap Entertainment, in 2014. “I didn’t want to pick up another script where I was the wife or the girlfriend— just a catalyst for the male story line. It was uninspiring.

Interestingly, Mary Queen of Scots isn’t the first time Robbie has taken on a role that required her to actively make herself look worse on-screen. After all, who can forget the curled bangs, black eyeliner, and braces she donned to play disgraced figure skater Tonya Harding in I, Tonya? “Margot is a very, very good actor who takes her work incredibly seriously,” says costar Saoirse Ronan, who plays Queen Mary in the film. “I don’t think looks even factor into it. Even when she has a glamorous role, she’s got this brilliant, strong presence, and part of that is because she’s a very sincere and authentic person. She’s very open. What you see is what you get.

Fearlessly shaking off her beauty and diving headlong into complex characters has clearly paid off for Robbie, who was nominated for an Oscar for her role in I, Tonya (which LuckyChap produced). And she now has roughly a dozen projects in various stages of development, including a thriller called Dreamland(also produced by her company), a Suicide Squad spin-off in which she will lead an ensemble of female superheroes, and a number of women-led television projects. “When we set out to create our company, it was sort of a new idea, but then in response to the #MeToo conversation it was all that anyone was talking about. People were like, ‘Why don’t we make movies for women?’ Uh, what a revelation, right?

The waiting area of LuckyChap, which is almost hidden in a nondescript bungalow on the Warner Bros. lot, is cast in a pink glow from the neon sign that bears the company name in loopy script. On the day of our interview, Robbie emerges from one of the back rooms dressed in high-waisted flared jeans, a black-and white-striped button-down top, and brandy-colored Mansur Gavriel platforms. She is smiling, like really smiling, radiating joy with her whole body. She tiptoes down the hall as if she’s sneaking up on someone or is giddy about sharing a secret. “I’m Margot,” she says, extending a slender arm to shake hands. “Do you want to see a puppy?

She knocks on yet another door, which is opened immediately by her assistant director-producer husband and one of the cofounders of LuckyChap, Tom Ackerley, a tall, handsome Brit who is holding a weeks-old pit-mix–terrier puppy they are fostering. Her colleagues are all longtime friends from her days living in London, when she and Tom shared a house with a group of young assistants working in film.

We’re calling her Bella,Robbie says, petting the dog’s head. “We’re absolutely not keeping her, are we, Tom? We can’t keep a puppy. We’re far too busy for a puppy, right, Tom?

Standing in the hall, face-to-face with Robbie, it’s hard to reconcile this version of the actress—this smiling, relaxed, unfettered dog lover—with the dark and complicated character I watched on the screen the day before. Of her metamorphosis, Robbie says, “Normally there’s someone who steps in and says, ‘No, keep all the girls looking pretty!’ But Josie Rourke, the director, was keen to explore how Queen Elizabeth’s looks affected her relationships, and everyone had the guts to do it.

Robbie and Ronan share only one scene in Mary Queen of Scots, but it’s a doozy. The actresses were never allowed to glimpse each other in full regalia until they were filming, so their shocked reaction to seeing one another that way—Mary begging for her life, Elizabeth in a steep decline—was visceral. The story of the strained relationship between the two 16th-century monarchs, is both a feud and a familial love story. Common threads of their experience—the cousins were both controlled by men in their court, forced into war, and struggled to keep their gender from being seen as a weakness—should bond them together, but instead it tears them apart. “I feel like Mary and Elizabeth could have just sat down and worked it out over coffee,Robbie says with a laugh. “But all those men kept getting in their way.

Next up, Robbie will play Sharon Tate in Quentin Tarantino’s take on Charles Manson–era Los Angeles in Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, due next summer, with Brad Pitt and Leonardo DiCaprio. She is also prepping for a Charlize Theron–produced drama about Roger Ailes and Fox News. With her packed schedule, Robbie doesn’t get much time to socialize these days, but she’s not complaining. “I’ve been working nonstop for 10 years, but I’m still giddy every time I walk on a set. We live and breathe the work here in L.A. I’ve got my head down!” Hopefully she’ll remember to look up on occasion, if only to show us how beautiful a woman in power can be.

July 19, 2018 — By

Evening Standard

In just over 10 years, Margot Robbie has gone from Neighbours to Oscar nominee and one of the most sought-after names in Hollywood. Now, as Gavanndra Hodge learns, she is focused on using her high-powered status for good.

For much of her life, Margot Robbie has been addicted to fear: to the electric adrenaline that surges through her when she is sure she can’t do something, but forces herself to try regardless. ‘I love feeling terrified, I love it when I think I can’t pull it off this time,’ she says. It is this compulsion that made her — then a 23-year-old unknown — unexpectedly slap Leonardo DiCaprio in the face during her screen test for Martin Scorsese’s The Wolf of Wall Street (the slap got her the job).

It is this determination to push it just a bit too far that made her insist on doing most of her own stunts when she stole the show as Suicide Squad’s baseball bat-wielding psycho with a heart, Harley Quinn. It is this refusal to stay within the limits of what might be expected from a ‘toothpaste model’ (her words) that led her to set up a production company with her now husband and two best friends when she was 24, and to produce and star in I, Tonya. ‘People said, “That will never get made,”’ she says of her film about the controversial, tenacious, domestically abused US Olympic figure skater, Tonya Harding. ‘It gets to me when people say that. So I was like, “Let’s give it a go.”’

I, Tonya was a critical success. Allison Janney won an Oscar for her portrayal of Harding’s ruthless, nicotine-addled mother and Robbie was nominated for an Oscar (and a Golden Globe) for her interpretation of the DIY diamanté Harding. The film was also a financial success — costing around £8 million to make and grossing £35m. Not bad for its producer and lead actor.

I, Tonya was the second film produced by Robbie. The first was Terminal, which has only just had its theatrical release. And it is to discuss Terminal that we are here, inside a suite at The Soho Hotel in London, eating chocolate biscuits and drinking Darjeeling tea. Robbie, who has just turned 28 (she went to Soho Farmhouse for her birthday), is wearing a peach-coloured silk vest and thin gold necklaces, which she fiddles with as she talks.

I was drawn to how odd and dark the script was,’ she explains. Terminal is indeed an odd film, a revenge-noir gangster flick visually inspired by films such as Brazil and Blade Runner. Robbie sparks and sizzles as a pole-dancing, tea-serving hit woman for hire with Wanstead vowels (‘you should try my sticky buns, handsome’). It was written and directed by first-timer Vaughn Stein, a former assistant director and a friend of Robbie’s British husband, Tom Ackerley, also a former AD who she first met on the set of 2013’s Suite Française. One senses that it was an act of friendship that made Robbie push to get Terminal made.

He [Stein] wanted to do it so badly and no one would put the money behind him, which is the case for so many talented creatives. So it was really nice to give him the chance to get his vision out there. At the same time we got the chance to learn how to produce.’ The film, which also stars Simon Pegg, was made over 27 relentless days and sleepless nights in Budapest. It cost £3m and Robbie says it makes her ‘swell with pride’.

Robbie grew up in the mountainous hinterland of Australia’s Gold Coast, kangaroos bouncing outside her bedroom window. Her days were spent on the beach, making rope swings, plunging into mountain rock pools. ‘No one thought I would be an actress because where I grew up it wasn’t a job you could do — I never met anyone who had so much as made a cup of coffee on a film set.

Her parents divorced when she was young and her mother, a physiotherapist, raised Robbie and her three siblings single-handedly. ‘She is such a saint; she is amazing, I love her. She held it together and always put everyone else first.

It was a chaotic, crowded and noisy childhood. ‘We weren’t easy kids, we didn’t make it easy for Mum.’ Not least Robbie herself, who was determined to assert her independence from a young age. ‘When I was five I was watching my mum put spread on my sandwich for school and I was saying, “It’s not going to the edges”, and she was like, “If I am not doing it right, do it yourself. So I started making my own lunch from five years old. If I wanted something a certain way I just did it myself. Mum says that sums me up. I’m still trying to make it up to her.’ (One of the first things Robbie did once her career took off was to pay off her mother’s mortgage.)

When Robbie was 17 she moved to Melbourne, and when she wasn’t working in a Subway restaurant she was badgering the production team on Neighbours. Her persistence paid off and in 2008 she won the part of Donna Freedman, who she played for two and a half years; but all the while she was seeing a dialect coach, perfecting her American accent so that she could make the move to the United States. Again, determination won out. Robbie’s second Hollywood film role was opposite DiCaprio in The Wolf of Wall Street.

Robbie says that she does not regret any of the parts she has played, but she is becoming more aware of the social impact of the roles she chooses. ‘It is a weird thing, having a profile,’ she says, becoming quiet for the first (and only) time during our conversation. ‘It is hard because I would never have got to this position if I was trying to censor everything I did. I would never have an impact on anyone if I played perfect characters.’ She does have some compelling roles coming up: as a pox-ridden Elizabeth I in Josie Rourke’s Mary Queen of Scots with Saoirse Ronan; and as Sharon Tate, the actress who was bloodily murdered by Charles Manson’s followers, in Quentin Tarantino’s Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, with Brad Pitt and DiCaprio. These are substantial, high-profile roles that explore the power and vulnerability of women ‘that seems to be the contradiction that I am most attracted to’, she says. And films that she is developing include Marion, a feminist retelling of the Robin Hood story; and Gotham City Sirens, for which she is reprising her role as Harley Quinn, but this time uniting a posse of DC Comics’ deranged heroines. ‘If I was going to play Harley again, I wanted it to be in the kind of movie I wanted to see. So it’s about a girl gang.’ The film is due to start filming early next year.

Robbie has been vocal in the #MeToo movement. Last year she was asked to give a speech at a Hollywood event celebrating women and film; she prepared by asking all her female crew member friends about their experiences in the industry, creating a collective narrative that was more powerful than one person’s experience. ‘Of course I knew the problem existed. I just hadn’t viewed it as a problem we were allowed to be angry about. Because no one spoke about it, no one said, “I am not putting up with this any more.” It wasn’t called a problem, it was called a fact of life. That is such a terrible mindset. If we just accept things like sexual harassment as a fact of life, it doesn’t get fixed.

This collective approach is one that comes naturally to Robbie. ‘I never do anything on my own. I don’t see the purpose of doing anything if I don’t do it with my friends. I go mental when I am on my own; my thoughts are so loud it drives me insane.’ On set she says she is never found in her trailer, but always chatting to cast and crew. She made such good friends with the crew on the set of Suite Française that a group of them decided to rent together in Clapham, squeezing seven people into a four-bedroom flat. ‘Those were the best days of my life,’ she says of the nights spent in Clapham’s bars, and the days on the Common with a football and booze. One of those flatmates was Ackerley, who she married in 2016 in Australia, wearing her mother’s old wedding dress. ‘It was lovely, just chilled, you didn’t have to wear shoes.

Her hen night at a friend’s house in Australia, however, was ‘absolute carnage’. There were at least 45 women, including Robbie’s gang of school friends, the ‘Heckers’. ‘There are 16 of us, we have been called that since we were at school.’ Her Neighbours friends were also invited, as were her British gang from her Clapham days: ‘They are a rowdy bunch, too, and the combination was explosive.Robbie is a big fan of fancy dress, always forcing it on other people at parties, so her friends dressed her up in various wigs and massive sunglasses for the surprise finale. ‘They hired a Harry Potter-themed stripper for me; he had all the Harry Potter phrases and innuendoes. I was so touched, it was really such a thoughtful thing to do. They know me so well.

Robbie has been reading the Harry Potter books on a loop since she was eight years old. ‘Right now I am on the fifth book. I know what’s coming next when I turn the page. I can’t meditate and this is what I have to do to fall asleep. Vaughn [the director of Terminal] told me that if you have trouble sleeping, which I do, you should read something that you are very familiar with to calm you. If I read something new before I go to bed, my brain goes 1,000 miles an a hour. Reading Harry Potter makes me happy and calms me. I read for about an hour to two hours every night. My husband hates it.

She also loves magic tricks and has spent many an evening at the Magic Castle in Los Angeles, where she and Ackerley have moved. ‘They always call me up on to the stage because I am always the one in the audience screaming. I give the best reactions.

Otherwise you will find her on the Warner Bros lot, where her production company is based, but despite the many projects she has in development, the thing that is getting her most fired up right now is her desire to do theatre. ‘I didn’t go to drama school and I didn’t go to university. I just really want to do theatre. The idea of doing it absolutely terrifies me, and I love that.

Determination has not, traditionally, been considered an attractive female trait. Women are told to be like the swan: graceful on the top, paddling like mad under the surface. Margot Robbie is exciting because she is happy to own her determination, happy to let the world see the beauty and the effort. ‘You can’t wait for it, you have to make it happen,’ she says, shaking my hand firmly.

‘Terminal’ is in cinemas now, and will be released on digital, DVD and Blu-ray on 6 August

Margot’s official photoshoot for the new Coco Neige Collection have been realesed!

Robbie said a few words what it meant to her to be part of Chanel:

This shoot was one of the greatest experiences of my career. The energy and vibe on set was so wonderful and collaborative. One of the first things Karl Lagerfeld said to me was that we never need to take ourselves too seriously. He has such a creative mind and he knows exactly what he wants and the minute he captured it, we were moving onto the next shot. It was amazing. Karl Lagerfeld is a creative mastermind. I already knew he was a genius but to be able to spend time with him in person, I now know he is also just a wonderful human being.

WWD – Just weeks after being introduced as the latest brand ambassador for Chanel, Margot Robbie has stepped in front of the lens of creative director Karl Lagerfeld to appear in her debut advertising campaign for the French luxury house.

The Australian actress has been selected as the face of Chanel’s first Coco Neige collection, set to hit Chanel boutiques in July and August in tandem with its fall ready-to-wear. The line, dedicated to winter sports and après-ski, mixes technical pieces with classic Chanel codes like tweed, leather and camellia motifs.

Robbie is pictured against a background of blue sky and clouds wearing items including a soft chunky sweater, a parka or a down jacket. The eight visuals will break from June 10 in the July editions of leading international magazines.

“This shoot was one of the greatest experiences of my career. The energy and vibe on set was so wonderful and collaborative,” Robbie said in a statement.

“One of the first things Karl Lagerfeld said to me was that we never need to take ourselves too seriously. He has such a creative mind and he knows exactly what he wants and the minute he captured it, we were moving onto the next shot. It was amazing. Karl Lagerfeld is a creative mastermind. I already knew he was a genius but to be able to spend time with him in person, I now know he is also just a wonderful human being,” said the actress, who flew to Paris last week to attend the Chanel cruise show and shoot the campaign.

NISSAN PRESS ROOM – Academy-award nominated actress Margot Robbie pulls on a wet suit and uses her love of surfing to inspire people to live more sustainable lives in her latest film for Nissan.

As Nissan’s Electric Vehicle and Sustainability Ambassador, the actress, producer and businesswoman has composed an open letter to encourage people to make more sustainable energy choices.

Robbie, who performed the surfing sequence herself, is seen enjoying the early morning waves as she talks of creating a “better world for ourselves and everyone who comes after us.”

With offshore wind farms and solar panels currently accounting for two-thirds of new power added to the world’s grid in 20161, Robbie explains that “we all have the power to make a change.”

“I hope I can play a small role in inspiring people across the globe to explore alternative forms of energy and make the switch to drive a better future for everyone,” said Robbie. “The point is, we can all make a difference and we don’t need to wait for others to do it for us.”

Robbie recently helped Nissan unveil its new Formula E car to a VIP crowd at an event in Los Angeles, to celebrate an exciting era for Nissan as it prepares to enter the ABB FIA Formula E Championship in the 2018/19 season. The move will benefit all drivers – as Nissan has committed to taking lessons learned on the track into future commercial electric vehicle development.

“Nissan is committed to pioneering a future which empowers consumers to make the right choices in how they use and store energy,” said Gareth Dunsmore, electric vehicle director, Nissan Europe. “Our LEAF and e-NV200 models are not only cleaner drives, they become mobile energy units too – the used batteries from these vehicles are put to good use as part of our xStorage energy storage solution which provides power to homes and even football stadiums across the world.”

Nissan’s global electric vehicle sales jumped 28% last fiscal year, when LEAF confirms its position of world’s best-selling electric vehicle. Nissan has sold more than 320,000 LEAFs since the model was first introduced in 2010.
