She received an Oscar nod for her spell-binding depiction of American figure skater Tonya Harding's fall from grace in I, Tonya.
And Margot Robbie's return to the silver screen has garnered another kind of attention, as eagle-eyed fans spotted the 27-year-old's uncanny similarity to American actress Jaime Pressly.
Robbie launched a production company named Lucky Chap Entertainment in 2014. In an interview with Digital Spy, Robbie said she had gone on a snowboarding holiday to Canada with her boyfriend soon after auditioning, but had to return after only two days when told that she had won the role.
Her profile continued to grow with leading roles in the romantic drama Focus (2015), as Jane Porter Clayton in the action-adventure film The Legend of Tarzan (2016), and as Harleen Quinzel / Harley Quinn in the superhero film Suicide Squad (2016). In early 2009, Robbie appeared in various Network Ten promotions, featuring an ensemble of popular Australian faces on the network.
During an interview in Sydney on Wednesday, the 27-year-old star admitted to the breakfast duo that she has a fear of making speeches.'The ideal situation is to be nominated and not actually win cause then it's lovely to be nominated and then you don't have to make the speech,' she joked.
