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.

Margot Robbie is reportedly in talks to star in a Barbie movie, according The Hollywood Reporter, in addition to starring in the feature film, the Oscar-nominated actress would also produce the project through her production company, LuckyChap Entertainment.

Barbie has found a new studio lot for her Malibu Dream House.

A movie about the popular doll was in development for years at Sony, but now Mattel is partnering with Warner Bros. for a feature film, with Margot Robbie in talks to star.

Robbie would also produce the project through her LuckyChap banner.

It was first announced in 2014 that Mattel was partnering with Sony for a Barbie movie. In 2016 it was reported that Amy Schumer would star in the movie that was billed as putting a contemporary spin on the toy with an emphasis on feminism and identity. A few months later Schumer dropped out of the project due to “scheduling conflicts.” It was later reported Anne Hathaway would replace Schumer.

In January, Sony pushed the movie’s release date from Aug. 8, 2018, to May 8, 2020, but the rights to Barbie reverted back to Mattel a few months later, and it appears the toymaker has found a new studio partner.

Sources say that Wonder Woman director Patty Jenkins is circling the Warners project but indicate there are no substantive talks that have taken place.

If deals make, the Barbie movie would continue a partnership between Robbie and Warner Bros., where her LuckyChap banner has a first-look deal. The studio is gearing up for the Robbie-produced Birds of Prey, which will see her reprise her DCU role as Harley Quinn.

Robbie, who earned an Oscar nomination for last year’s I, Tonya, will next be seen in Mary Queen of Scots and is currently working on Sony’s Once Upon a Time in Hollywood. She is repped by CAA, Management 360 and Jackoway Tyerman.

The Hollywood Reporter – Margot Robbie and Matthias Schoenaerts are set to star in the Nazi revenge thriller ‘Ruin.

Justin Kurzel, who directed Assassin’s Creed, will helm the Black List-topping script by Matthew and Ryan Firpo for Marc Butan’s Mad River Pictures. Set in post-World War II Germany, Ruin sees a Holocaust survivor, played by Robbie, forced to make an unlikely alliance with an ex-SS captain (Schoenaerts) in her quest to exact revenge.

Together, they hunt down the surviving members of the captain’s former Nazi death squad. Wonder Woman star Gal Gadot was earlier in negotiations to star in Ruin.

The film is set to shoot in Prague in spring 2019. Robbie will next appear as Queen Elizabeth I in Focus Features’ Mary Queen of Scots and is currently in production on Quentin Tarantino’s Once Upon a Time in Hollywood for Sony’s Columbia Pictures label.

She is also set to play Harley Quinn in the untitled Birds of Prey film for Warner Bros., which she is also producing under her LuckyChap banner. Schoenaerts will next be seen in David Oelhoffen’s Close Enemies, which debuts in Venice, and Thomas Vinterberg’s Kursk, set to premiere in Toronto.

Butan is producing Ruin alongside Kurzel. Ara Keshishian is executive producing alongside Nik Bower and Deepak Nayar of Riverstone Pictures, who are co-financing.

CAA Media Finance packaged the film and is handling the U.S. rights, while IMR International will handle foreign sales.

Robbie is repped by Management 360, CAA and Aran Michael Management. Schoenaerts is repped by CAA and UBBA in Europe. Kurzel is repped by CAA and Katie Richter. Ryan and Matthew Firpo are repped by UTA and LBI Entertainment.

THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER – Annapurna has tapped another A-list actress for its untitled movie about the women of Fox News.

Margot Robbie is in talks to join Charlize Theron and Nicole Kidman in the project that centers on the women who took on the toxic male culture of the news network and its late chief Roger Ailes.

Theron will take on the role of former host Megyn Kelly, while Kidman will portray Gretchen Carlson. Robbie will play an associate producer at the news network.

The studio, which is already making a Dick Cheney biopic with helmer Adam McKay, is financing and producing the project that was written by The Big Short scribe Charles Randolph and will be directed by Jay Roach.

Theron will produce the feature along with Beth Kono and AJ Dix via their Denver & Delilah banner. Roach, Randolph and Margaret Riley are also producing.

Ailes ran Fox News and helped launch the careers of Kelly, Carlson and Sean Hannity with his powerful channel. He also was a prominent figure in Republican circles that helped elect presidents Richard Nixon, Ronald Reagan and George Bush. Ailes was forced to resign in 2016 when a host of accusations of sexual misconduct surfaced, with Carlson’s and Kelly’s the most high-profile, and which contributed to his exit from the network.

The untitled project is described as an ensemble pic, with Ailes and others who were involved at Fox News during his reign said to be major players in the piece. Characters included are likely to be Carlson, former anchor Greta Van Susteren, media mogul Rupert Murdoch and fired host Bill O’Reilly.

Robbie is coming off an Oscar nomination for her performance as Tonya Harding in I,Tonya, and will next be seen in another awards-season contender, Mary Queen of Scots.
