Margot Robbie has become one of the best-known actresses in Hollywood over the past few years, following her portrayal of Harley Quinn in superhero movie Suic*de Squad back in 2016. She has since gone on to boost her CV with roles in some of the biggest films that have been made over the past two years as well as being named one of Time Magazine's 100 most influential people in the world back in 2017.
Margot has only been in the spotlight for nine years, after rising to fame following her role in Australian soap opera Neighbours. Since then she has been able to branch out to become one of the most recognizable faces in the world. Robbie has been able to change her appearance a number of times throughout her career, to the point where many fans don't even recognize her from one role to the other, but it seems that some of the younger pictures of her are along the same lines.
Margot isn't someone who has grown up in the public eye, since she was 18 when she landed her first role in Neighbours, but it seems that there are still a number of much younger images of her that show just how much she has changed. The following list looks at 15 images of Margot Robbie from when she was younger that make the well-known actress much harder to recognize. It seems that she has changed much more than anyone realized over the past ten years.
15 Young Margot
Margot's first movie role was back in 2008 when she portrayed Cassandra in a movie called Vigilante. She later moved on to star in I.C.U. and Tristan Waters a film where she also worked as an executive producer. Margot impressed the director so much through her audition that she managed to land the lead role in I.C.U. based solely on that, even though she didn't have an agent at the time.
She later went on to appear in a number of TV commercials including one for Nivea, before she went on to have guest roles in The Elephant Princess and City Homic*de which were both popular Australian TV series at the time and allowed Robbie to find her footing in the business and gain some experience in her early years. A few months later she made a huge breakthrough in her career when she landed the role of Donna Freedman in Neighbours.
14 Farm Girl
Born back in 1990, Robbie was raised on her grandparent's farm on the Gold Coast in Australia, before she later moved to Melbourne when she decided that she wanted to pursue a career in the acting industry.
Her mother Sarie Kessler is a physiotherapist and her father Doug Robbie is a former farm owner and she has three siblings. She and her two brothers and her sister were raised by their single mother since Margot has admitted herself that she has always only had minimal contact with her father, a relationship that still hasn't improved. It seems that the story is similar for her siblings as well. Margot has an older brother called Lachlan or "Lachie," a younger brother called Cameron and a sister called Anya. All four children were raised on a farm and it seems that this has allowed them to remain quite a close-knit family.
13 Acting Pursuit
Margot first decided that she wanted to pursue a career as an actress when he was 17 years old. She had already studied acting at school and it seems that she had a lot of passion for it as a career, so she decided to move across the country to Melbourne, Victoria to see if she could make her dream a reality.
Margot obviously took quite well to the career, since she began acting professionally not long afterwards when she was still just 17 years old and still living with her agent's best friend. Margot was no stranger to working hard to make ends meet, after working three jobs when she was just 16 years old so she was able to weather the storm and landed her first movie role a few months later. It was the following year that she got her big break when Neighbours came knocking and she accepted her first recurring role.
Margot had only been acting professionally for a few months when she landed the role of Donna Freedman in Australian soap opera, Neighbours. The role was only supposed to be as a guest but it seems that Margot managed to impress the company so much that they decided to promote her to being a regular cast member.
Margot later revealed that she didn't think she would get the role, so much so that he went on a snowboarding holiday with her boyfriend a few days after the audition and then had to come back after just two days when she got the call to say that she had got the part and had to begin work immediately. It was this role that truly allowed Margot to become a recognized face and catapulted her into a number of other projects. She left the role back in 2011 after just three years to pursue a career in Hollywood.
11 The Wolf Of Wall Street
When Margot auditioned for her part in The Wolf of Wall Street back in 2013, she was understandably nervous since she had to act alongside screen icon Leonardo DiCaprio. It seems that her nerves took over and as part of the audition she and DiCaprio were in the middle of an argument when she lashed out and hit him across the face.
Robbie later stated that she thought she was going to get arrested. She had bruised Leo's face and she thought it was definitely going to be seen as assault. Instead, it seems that the producer and director both burst out laughing and Leo looked at her and told her to do it again. And that is the story of how she landed one of the biggest roles of her career, which is definitely one that she will be telling her children about in the years to come.
10 Putting Her Currency On The Line
The Wolf of Wall Street was a film where Margot Robbie seemingly managed to prove that she is one of the most skilled female actresses in the game. She further proved this by pushing the boundaries throughout filming, since it was revealed that Margot changed one of the films most iconic scenes.
There was a scene where her character Naomi was supposed to seduce Jordan Belfort and Martin Scorsese had scripted the scene to have her wearing a robe. This didn't feel risky enough for Margot who suggested that her character appear in the buff instead. Robbie believed that Naomi knew that her body was her only currency in the world and she was putting it all on the line there. Scorsese obviously agreed with Margot since this is the scene that many fans were able to witness in the movie. It was definitely a bold choice that later paid off for the actress.
9 Early Years
Margot may be a blonde and a few times in her career she has been seen to portray the stereotypical blonde character, but it seems that the actress herself is anything but dumb. Margot studied drama throughout her time at school before she graduated from Somerset College a few years later.
She was forced to work three jobs simultaneously when she was just 16 years old to help her single mother to make ends meet, but she actually started her working life at the tender age of just 10 years old when she worked as a cutlery polisher on her local restaurant. It seems that Margot was someone who was always taught the value of money and being forced into menial jobs at such a young age allowed the actress to realize that this wasn't what she wanted to do all her life. She decided to dream bigger and at the age of seventeen she moved away from her family to pursue a career in the acting business.
8 Relationship Status
Margot is considered to be one of the most attractive women in Hollywood right now, especially after she was chosen to play Harley Quinn two years ago, who is considered to be one of the most attractive females in the superhero world.
Despite her beauty, it seems that Margot actually struggles to find a date, something that she admitted a few years ago. Robbie stated that she is never in a place long enough to be able to find a boyfriend, which makes dating hard for her. She confessed that this is one of the reasons that she's always single. She did, however, describe that her perfect man would be someone with long hair, preferably in a ponytail, a beard and perhaps a tattoo. It could easily be believed that Robbie definitely went home to an astonishing number of inbox messages from eligible bachelors after this interview was made public.
7 Hockey Fan
Every Margot Robbie fan will know that when she goes to a hockey game she goes all out. There are a number of images online that show Robbie supporting her favourite team, The New York Rangers. She is often seen wearing the oversized hockey jumper to support her team and even confessed that red, white and blue are her favourite colours.
Robbie is a self-confessed tomboy and someone who doesn't like to dress up if she doesn't have to, so it seems that these hockey games are the perfect excuse for her to dress down and enjoy her sport. Robbie is so talented when it comes to hockey that she even plays right-wing on her own hockey team. How on earth does she ever find the time for this kind of activity? Robbie is also often pictured at the games alongside her long-time partner and film director Tom Ackerley.
6 Style Icon
As already noted above, Margot has already confessed that she is a tomboy. She once said, “Most of the time I end up wearing shorts and a t-shirt and a pair of converse. If I’m making an effort it’s on the less feminine side, more grungy and edgy.” It seems that despite this, many fans of the actress see her as something of an icon based on many of the outfits that she has been seen wearing on the red carpet.
Her fashion sense is seemingly something that she has always had since the above photo was taken when she was just 17 years old and show her attempting to look glamorous in her own way. Margot is absolutely beautiful and it seems that she always manages to wear the things that look the best on her small frame. Perhaps this is why many fans are able to look up to her.
5 Tom And Margot
Margot Robbie married her boyfriend of three years, Tom Ackerley, back in 2016. The couple originally met back in 2013 onset of the film Suite Française, which was released the following year. Ackerley is known as a British assistant director and the couple originally moved to London for a while where they lived with two of their friends.
It seems that this lifestyle didn't suit the two or Margot's career as an actress, so they have since moved to Los Angeles. The couple's marriage was a secret ceremony in Australia back in December 2016 and it seems that the couple has never been happier with making this decision. Tom is the son of an estate agent who was brought up in Surrey. It is reported that within the first year of their relationship they launched their own film company, Lucky Chap Entertainment, so it seems that the couple really is the perfect match.
4 Young Friends
As previously mentioned, Margot was able to have quite an ordinary childhood since she was raised by her single mother on her grandparent's farm on The Gold Coast. She was able to go to school with a number of other children her age and only decided to pursue acting after she had graduated college.
She landed her first acting role just months after her graduation, but this also meant that Margot was able to grow up like any other normal child and have a number of embarrassing images of her taken while she was growing up and hanging out with her friends. The above image show just how much Robbie has changed since she was a seemingly shy child to the woman that is currently taking over Hollywood. It is unknown how old Robbie is in the image above.
3 17 Years Old
It could be argued that Margot Robbie has always been destined for greatness. The above image was taken just months after she graduated from college and decided to pursue a career in acting. Robbie is just 17 years old above and it can be argued that she has hardly changed over the past decade.
Even though Robbie achieved so much in her career before 2013, it was claimed by many critics that she was "Scorsese's best blonde bombshell discovery since Cathy Moriarty in Raging Bull." This was the thing that truly ignited her career. Up until that point she had auditioned for a number of roles without success, but it seems that Scorsese made her a star in Wolf of Wall Street, a film that she won an Empire Award for Best Newcomer for back in 2014. It is incredible that it only took Robbie six years to go from dreaming of being an actress to becoming a household name.
2 Harry Potter Fan
Margot Robbie, like many children in the 1990s, grew up reading about Harry Potter. It seems that he is the reason for the above image, which the actress has admitted is one of the most embarrassing pictures that were ever taken of her.
Robbie would have been just seven years old when J.K. Rowling released the first Harry Potter book back in 1997 and is pictured above reading Harry Potter and the Order of The Phoenix. Obviously, Robbie has changed a lot since this image was taken since she's seen with much darker hair and it looks as though she is wearing braces. Considering Order of The Phoenix, the fifth book in the Harry Potter series, was released back in 2003, it means that Robbie can be no younger than 13 years old in the above image. Everyone has embarrassing younger images of themselves, and this just goes to show that Robbie is only human like the rest of us.
1 Future Harley Quinn
Even though Margot Robbie took the world by storm following her role in The Wolf of Wall Street, it seems that it was her role as Harley Quinn in Suic*de Squad alongside the likes of Will Smith and Jared Leto's Joker that really allowed her to turn heads.
Robbie was chosen out of thousands of other female actresses to play the iconic role as one of DC's biggest supervillains and even though it seems that the film itself didn't manage to live up to the hype, Margot has become iconic in this role over the past few years. This role has allowed her to move on to other starring ones including Goodbye Christopher Robin, I, Tonya, Mary Queen of Scotts, Peter Rabbit and Terminal. It could be argued that Suic*de Squad was the biggest role of her career, regardless of the fact that the movie itself wasn't as successful as many actually thought it would be.
