It seems like Margot Robbie has been everywhere recently. The actress has sure come a long way from her Neighbours days. She’s starred in some of the biggest movies of this past summer and has shown everyone that she’s a force to be reckoned with. After Suicide Squad‘s success, Robbie’s star power has only increased with her electric performance of Harley Quinn. Even before that breakout role, the actress has been recognized for acting. Throughout her career, she’s been nominated for numerous awards from the MTV Movie Awards to the EE Rising Star BAFTA Award.
Robbie has been in the game for a long time before her days as a mega movie star. It doesn’t look like the talented actress is stopping anytime soon. But, how much is Robbie’s net worth right now?
Margot Robbie Net worth as of 2018: $8 million.
Let’s take a look at the timeline of Robbie’s career.
2008 – 2012
The young star got her start on the Australian soap opera, Neighbours. She was even nominated for multiple Logie Awards, an Australian Television Awards show. Her popularity grew during the course of the show and she was an instant fan favorite for her portrayal of Donna Freeman/Brown. She appeared on the show for three years and over 300 episodes. After her career-launching turn on the show, Robbie made the jump to Hollywood. Once Robbie got to Hollywood, she immediately landed the part of Laura Cameron on the short-lived TV show, Pan Am, co-starring Christina Ricci. She show wasn’t a success but did introduce Robbie to American audiences.
2013 really saw Robbie’s big break in the movie business. Robbie won a coveted role alongside Leonardo DiCaprio in Martin Scorcese’s The Wolf of Wall Street, where she portrayed Naomi Lapaglia. The film won much critical acclaim and was nominated for five Oscars. It also was a hit for the box office, earning almost $400 million. Robbie was especially highlighted as her charismatic performance as DiCaprio’s second wife saw the actress go toe-to-toe with film veteran DiCaprio in every scene. The film showed that Robbie could really hold her own in a big picture and prompted many more roles to come the starlet’s way.
2014 – 2015
During 2014 and 2015, Robbie appeared in indie dramas and big budget pictures alike. In 2014, Robbie starred in Z for Zachariah alongside Chris Pine and Chiwetel Ejiofor. Robbie then went on to star in Focus with Will Smith. Both of these films saw Robbie as the lead actress and showed Hollywood once again that she could help carry and improve any kind of film. It was also during this time that Robbie threw her hat into the producing ring and started the production company, LuckyChap Entertainment, with Tom Ackerley and Sophia Kerr. The company has many films on the horizon, all starring Robbie who will pull double-duty as actress and producer.
2016 was another banner year for the Australian actress. She first starred in the comedy Whiskey Tango Foxtrot with Tina Fey. Robbie’s appearance in the film highlighted her great amount of range in terms of the roles and movies that she’s chosen for herself. Robbie then went on to star in The Legend of Tarzan as Jane. While the film didn’t do exceptionally at the box office or with critics, Robbie was still a highlight of the movie. Robbie then went on to bring Harley Quinn to life in Suicide Squad, Robbie’s biggest film to date. Robbie held her own in the super villain flick even in such a large cast of accomplished actors like Viola Davis and previous co-star Will Smith. Suicide Squad was famously panned by critics everywhere but almost all of them agreed on the fact that Robbie’s Harley Quinn was one of the best parts about the film. Her portrayal of the messed up former psychiatrist was a huge draw for fans everywhere and quickly became a pop culture icon. The bad reviews didn’t stop the movie from earning huge box office numbers though. It earned over $700 million and there are already rumors of a sequel brewing. What isn’t a rumor anymore is the fact that Robbie’s amazing Harley Quinn performance led to the first announced spin-off from the Suicide Squad film, which will focus on Haley Quinn and be produced by Robbie and her company LuckyChap Entertainment.
Robbie isn’t going anywhere anytime soon. The actress has many other projects on the horizon. Other than the Harley Quinn spin-off, Robbie has plans to portray Lillian Leitzel in Queen of the Air and Tonya Harding in I, Tonya. You can next catch Robbie in the thriller Terminal, which will be released in 2016. With so many projects announced and coming up, it’s exciting to see what Robbie will do next!
Even after her whirlwind year, Robbie is still keeping herself busy in 2017. After a secret wedding ceremony with Tom Ackerly, Robbie is working hard at all the upcoming movies she’s earned roles in, such as Terminal, Gotham City Sirens, and I, Tonya.
In fact, her role in I, Tonya is gaining media interest. She plays as Tonya Harding, an infamously known ice skater that was banned for life from the U.S. Figure Skating Association. On set, she’s been seen wearing facial prosthetics and an unkempt hairstyle. The media on set called Robbie unrecognizable in both appearance and expression.
Margot Robbie got a nomination in Oscar for her role in ‘I, Tanya’.
