After incriminating photos were released of ‘Focus’ co-stars Will and Margot getting flirty, rumors began swirling that an affair might be happening. Those whispers have been shot down, but you still may be asking: Who’s the girl in the middle of the scandal?
Margot Robbie, 23, may not have foreseen becoming a household name this way — by being implicated in an affair with her Focus co-star Will Smith — but now that those rumors have been debunked and her name is on the lips of many, find out who she really is!
Margot Robbie: 5 Things To Know
1. She’s Been Around The Block
And no, we don’t mean with the guys. Though you may not be familiar with Margot yet, she isn’t exactly an upstart actress. Before landing the once in a lifetime Focus role, Margot appeared as a main character on the TV show Pan Am and in the movie About Time. She also has a role in the upcoming Leonardo DiCaprio movie The Wolf of Wall Street.
2. She’s An Aussie
We knew there was something exotic-looking about her! Yep, Margot is from Down Under — born and raised on the Gold Coast.
3. She’s A Huge Sports Fan
Margot may look like a girly-girl beauty, but she’s also big into American sports. And because she’s from Australia, it seems that she just randomly chose her favorite teams when she moved here! Her Twitter followers know that Margot loves to cheer for the New Orleans Saints and the New York Rangers.
4. She Gives Back Too
Margot is a member of Greenpeace, an environmental organization that lobbies to make the world a better place.
5. She Gets Close To All Of Her Co-Stars
Will isn’t the first co-star Margot’s become good friends with. When she was on the Australian soap Neighbours, she lived with co-star Ashleigh Brewer, according to Digital Spy. And when she left that show to move to New York for her Pan Am role, she then moved in with co-star Caitlin Stasey! She also had to ward off rumors that she was dating Leo during the filming of The Wolf of Wall Street.
Sounds like we should start following this girl for more reasons than those suggestive photos she took with Will, right HollywoodLifers?
