The Margot Corner
- margoterobbie.org -

Yesterday (April 28th), Margot attended the 2019 Tribeca Film Festival to promote her upcoming film ‘Dreamland’! She was accompanied by her co-stars and director Miles Joris-Peyrafitte, and conducted a string of interviews and portrait sessions ahead of the evening’s big world premiere of the film. Our gallery has been updated with photos from both the photoshoots and the world premiere, and a few videos have began to surface online – read on for full coverage from the festival!

Margot, Miles and her co-star Finn Cole started the day by visiting Deadline’s studio at the festival. She wore all white for the occasion, and she looked stunning! 4 photos from their arrival and 1 stunning portrait have been added to our gallery for you.

Following the Deadline studio visit, the trio did a portrait session at the Spring Studio with photographer Corey Nickols.

Later in the evening, the world premiere of the film was held at the BMCC Tribeca PAC. Margot showed up in a stunning floral patterned Chanel jumpsuit – and I love absolutely everything about this look! Her hairstylist, Bryce Scarlett, and makeup artist, Pati Dubrof, both did a great job with this look of hers. I have done my best to hunt down every single photo there is of Margot from the night, so more than 400 high quality photos from the evening have been added to our gallery for you 😉

In addition to all the new photos, two videos of Margot at the festival have also been uploaded online. The first one you can find below, but the second I was unable to embedded – so head over to DailyMail to see the original video here. I expect a lot more to surface soon, so I’ll do a full video master-post as soon as more content starts to appear. Stay tuned!


PS: Dreamland is set in Texas during the 1930s, and Margot plays the main character Allison Wells, a bank robber with a bounty on her. In addition to staring as the lead, Margot is also a producer of the film! No release date has been set just yet, but we will keep you posted on anything new related to the film.

Hello Margot fans! At the beginning of the year, Deadline shared a great new interview with Margot and Saoirse Ronan. They discuss ‘Mary Queen of Scots’, upcoming projects and their choice of characters! You can read it in full below, and find a stunning new photoshoot outtake which accompanied the article over in our galleries at this link.

Deadline | The real Queen Elizabeth I and Mary Stuart probably never met. But when you cast a film with Margot Robbie as Elizabeth, and Saoirse Ronan as Mary, it seems only right that they come together, if only for one scene. Josie Rourke’s Mary Queen of Scots may briefly put the two monarchs face-to-face, but otherwise, staying true to the characters’ separate lives, Ronan and Robbie didn’t meet on set at all until they were on camera together—a decision Ronan calls a mutual “experiment”—and one that turned out to perfectly serve a tale of rivalry, isolation and oppressed female power.

Saoirse, you signed on to play Mary six years ago, but what did you know about this story going into it?

Saoirse Ronan: I didn’t know much, really. I learned a very small amount about Mary Queen of Scots when I was in school, and there was so much about her that had been entered into the history books that just wasn’t really true. So my perception of her was that she was this young girl who was way in over her head and didn’t really know how to rule, and consequently, she got executed eventually, which of course isn’t the real story at all. So when I finally did start to do research when I signed on to do the film years ago, I realized she came from a very well-respected yet very fiery family, the Stuarts, who had been ruling for hundreds of years. It was very exciting to know that there was another side to the story that hadn’t been told.

Margot Robbie: I knew very little. I had an image of Elizabeth in my mind, the way we see her at the end of this film with the white face and the red lips and elaborate dresses. That tableau existed in my mind but I had very little context for it, so I really was starting at the beginning, and Josie was incredible at helping me put together a timeline, and gave me a catch-up of the history up until that point. It was fascinating because I just thought about the time period in a very different way. I’d assumed Elizabeth must have had a very easy life as a monarch, and quickly discovered that being a monarch actually meant your life was constantly in danger. And I think for Elizabeth that knowledge was deep-seated, and grew into paranoia over the years. You get to see that in the film as she does play her hand very cautiously. She is constantly calculating and mitigating the risks.

Following her long list of Magazine covers and editorials in January, Margot will be the cover girl of ELLE Magazine‘s February issue! We now have the first parts of her interview, her cover + photoshoot outtakes, and they are GORGEOUS. This is one of my new favorite Margot photoshoots, and we’re very lucky to have them in beautiful high quality already. You can read her interview below, and I’ve posted the links to the gallery albums at the bottom of the post. Enjoy this stunning new additions, and keep checking back for more. We’ll hopefully have more outtakes from this photoshoot soon.

Elle | Margot Robbie is, yes, a knockout. But like the women she’s portrayed in her decade-long career—a trophy wife on a mission in The Wolf of Wall Street; a balls-to-the-wall war reporter in Whiskey Tango Foxtrot; the feisty, feminist Jane in The Legend of Tarzan; and, of course, Suicide Squad’s lovable lunatic criminal, Harley Quinn—the Aussie stunner is so much more than an ingenue. Below, find a preview of Robbie’s February cover interview with her I, Tonya co-star, Allison Janney, where she discusses her future as a director, the highlight of her career and what it was like playing Tonya Harding:

On fear of playing a real-life character: “…playing Tonya [Harding], who’s very much alive and is widely documented, can be more intimidating.”

On directing: “I still love acting. But I’ve spent the last 10 years on a film set, and I realized that if I am pouring my heart and soul into a film, I want to be one of those voices in the conversation making decisions.”

On the first highlight of her career: “When I got to New York for the first time, I took my first paycheck, walked straight into Tiffany’s on Fifth Avenue, and bought an airplane charm that goes on my bracelet. It was the best feeling ever. I got my little blue box, and I got it for myself.”

On which skill she wants to master: “I recently bought fire-twirling poles, because I really want to get good at it. When I was backpacking in the Philippines, there were heaps of fire twirlers on the beach, and it was so cool. I was like, Wow, I really want to do that!”

Margot is kicking off the new year with a bang! As one of many celebrities featured in British Vogue’s new Hollywood Portfolio, our girl covers the magazine’s February issue. Margot poses together with Nicole Kidman for a stunning cover, and we have the first photos in our gallery! The portfolio is photographed by Juergen Teller and styled by Edward Enninful, and according to the magazine itself, “the portrait of the duo sets the tone for the 20-page Hollywood portfolio within the editor-in-chief’s third issue of #NewVogue. Entitled “Best Performances”, the shoot celebrates the stars whose Oscar-worthy roles embody cinema’s new mood and Hollywood’s reevaluation of itself.”

The same photoshoot is also featured in W Magazine’s Best Performances issue. Head over to our gallery to check out photos and scans from both the covers and the photoshoot! We hope to have more soon. Below you can watch the stars share their “firsts” with British Vogue; “from first loves to first auditions and their earliest memories of London, the stars of Vogue’s Hollywood portfolio, featuring Margot Robbie, Tom Hanks, Gal Gadot, Daniel Kaluuya, Diane Kruger, Hong Chau, Andrew Garfield, Salma Hayek, Mary J. Blige, Michelle Williams, Robert Pattinson, Gary Oldman, Jessica Chastain, Saoirse Ronan and Timothée Chalamet share their “firsts”.”

Vogue | MARGOT ROBBIE and Nicole Kidman are the cover stars of the February 2018 issue of British Vogue.

Photographed by Juergen Teller and styled by Edward Enninful, the portrait of the duo sets the tone for the 20-page Hollywood portfolio created in collaboration with W magazine. Entitled “Best Performances”, the shoot celebrates the stars whose Oscar-worthy roles embody cinema’s new mood and Hollywood’s reevaluation of itself.

“When I first decided that Vogue should put together a star-filled portfolio featuring the biggest names in current cinema to mark the exceptional 2017/18 awards season,” Enninful said, “who knew Hollywood would soon be top of the global news agenda?

“It was clear to me that the mood needed to change. That it was time for honesty. Enter photographer Juergen Teller, my long-time collaborator and the world’s most gifted documenter of celebrity at its most intimate and off-duty. Over four days in Los Angeles, it was great to spend time with him and some of today’s amazing talents as they look to reshape how Hollywood does business in a post-Weinstein world, including cover stars Margot Robbie and Nicole Kidman – two of the most straight-talking professionals I’ve ever had the pleasure of working with.”

Of her ascendant career, Robbie told interviewer Lynn Hirschberg: “My family has no connection to the entertainment industry whatsoever, so when I started acting, everyone was like, ‘That’s fun, but when are you going to actually get a real job?’ And that went on for years. They’re impressed for five seconds, and then they’re, ‘So anyway, the dog threw up today.’”

Kidman, meanwhile, spoke of the openings in Hollywood: “I still feel like I’m the kid at drama school hoping to get a role. I always feel like I’m so fortunate and lucky to have the job. Part of my job now is to give back and help create opportunities for the next generation – particularly with female directors, because it is so imbalanced.”

Enninful added of the experience: “Working on the annual Hollywood Best Performances shoot with the incredible writer Lynn Hirschberg is one of the highlights of my year. Lynn’s unparalleled knowledge of Hollywood and her uncanny ability to spot the next big thing is what makes her the best in the industry.”

Margot is the cover star of this week’s Time Out New York! The magazine just released a video clip titled “Face Off with Margot Robbie”, as well as three stunning outtakes from her photoshoot. She looks so beautiful! Check out the clip below, and read on for an interview she did with the magazine about “I, Tonya”. I have also added screen captures from the video to our gallery! We’ll hopefully soon have magazine scans, stay tuned for more updates.

Stamina, flair, toughness: Anyone who tells you acting isn’t a lot like playing sports hasn’t spent much time doing either. Ever since holding her own against a manic Leonardo DiCaprio in The Wolf of Wall Street, Margot Robbie could never be confused for anything less than a fearless competitor. But her latest performance seriously ups the ante: As the disgraced Olympic figure skater Tonya Harding—forever tarnished by her association with the 1994 off-ice attack on Nancy Kerrigan—the 27-year-old actor pulls off one of the most daring feats of empathy of the year. Directed by Craig Gillespie and coproduced by Robbie herself, I, Tonya is a supercharged Scorsesian rise-and-fall sports movie: trashy, funny, devastating and anchored by a star turn that will be talked about long beyond awards season. Born in Australia before living in Brooklyn, London and most recently Los Angeles, Robbie calls herself a gypsy; “home” is a free-floating concept for her. During a relatively quiet moment before the Oscar whirlwind, we connected with Robbie to talk about lacing up for 17-hour shooting days, the Harvey Weinstein scandal and the enigma at the heart of her latest triumph.

Do you miss living in New York?
Oh, my God, are you kidding me? I miss New York all the time. I was in South Williamsburg just before it really blew up, and then I lived in Bed-Stuy for a little bit as well. It was amazing. I think Williamsburg is a little too busy for me now. But six, seven years ago, it was incredible. I miss everything: the restaurants, Brooklyn Bowl, Nitehawk Cinema—I used to go there all the time.

But you’re still a huge New York Rangers fan?
Definitely. I think I’ll always be a Rangers fan.

You played ice hockey growing up, right?
Not growing up, but I played it when I first moved to America [in 2011]. I’m from a coastal town in Australia, so ice sports weren’t really a thing. But The Mighty Ducks was, so I wanted to join a league. I loved it.

What position did you play?
Right wing, but don’t be fooled—I am not any good at it.

Still, the skating must have helped you nail all those triple axels in I, Tonya.
[Sarcastically] Yeah, I can totally do a triple axel. We all underestimated how incredibly difficult that was. When we started planning that scene, we thought, Oh, we’ll just get a stunt double to come in. And our skate choreographer was like, “No one can do a triple axel—you know that, right?” There were only two women in America who could do them, and they’re both Asian, so neither could double for me. We ended up having to CGI it.

I’m crushed. Meanwhile, I love how the movie stresses Harding’s real talents, along with her scrappiness.
She wasn’t one to play by the rules—she was a little rough around the edges—and without that sort of rule-breaking mentality, she wouldn’t have been able to pull off such an amazing sporting achievement: the first U.S. woman to land a triple axel in a competition. The more we got to understand the ice-skating world, the more we appreciated that.

There’s also a subtle class warfare going on here with the other girls and against snobby judges who were shocked by skating routines set to ZZ Top’s “Sleeping Bag.”
She had incredible discipline and drive to make it to where she was, despite her class and her circumstances. Figure skating’s a really expensive sport. Still, she excelled. Tonya’s not necessarily the image they wanted to have. But I think that’s what I like about the film most.

All we mainly remember about Harding is the “incident.” How does one play that mentality? The film is oblique on her culpability.
I think what I was focusing on, overall, was the idea that she was craving love and constantly searching for validation, whether that was from Jeff [Gillooly, Harding’s then husband] or her mom or the public. (Read full interview at source)

To celebrate the release of the new ‘I, Tonya‘ teaser trailer, Trevor Godinho released a set of images, taken during a portrait session at the Toronto International Film Festival a number of weeks ago. The images are designed with a red gradient, which does nothing to hide Margot’s beauty shining through.

These portraits have been added to the gallery, with the original Instagram post available here.
