Whether or not Margot Robbie got married this weekend, we are so happy for her
If the internet is to be believed, Margot Robbie married Tom Ackerley Sunday night in Byron Bay, Australia.
However, Robbie is yet to respond to anyone’s request for comment on her oh-so-stealthy nuptials to Ackerley, a British director she has been dating since 2013, so let’s just go with this — no matter what, girlfriend is having the year of her life and we are super, super happy for her.
As comedian Billy Eichner made clear during the recent sketch “Escape Margot Robbie’s Moment” on Billy on the Street, Robbie (and Hailee Steinfeld, natch) is one of the few people actually having an amazing 2016. From her movie-stealing appearance in The Big Short to her dominating turn in Suicide Squad to, most recently, inspiring the very male-dominated DC Comics film universe to commission a Harley Quinn spin-off movie, Gotham City Sirens, the Aussie actor is capital-C Crushing It whether she has a ring on that finger or not.
For what it’s worth, there is some solid evidence that these nuptials actually went down. Just last week, Robbie was photographed in Australia wearing a shirt that read ““Say ‘I Do’ Down Under.” Then, on Sunday, Robbie’s brother Cameron posted an Instagram saying he was “on holiday,”, while Ackerley’s brother James tagged Harvest Newrybar, a popular wedding venue in Byron Bay, on his account.
So the signs are obviously there, and speculation that the two would wed first picked up back in June, when Robbie showed up to the Legend of Tarzan premiere rocking an enormous pink diamond ring on her engagement finger. And her Instagram account, of course, makes it quite clear that she’s totally and adorably in love with Ackerley.
We’ll likely found out whether it all went down on Sunday night or not very soon, but in the meantime, let’s just be happy that someone out there is having the best year of their life.
“I was the ultimate single gal,” Robbie gushed Vogue about Ackerley. “The idea of relationships made me want to vomit. And then this crept up on me. We were friends for so long. I was always in love with him, but I thought, ‘Oh, he would never love me back. Don’t make it weird, Margot. Don’t be stupid and tell him that you like him.’ And then it happened, and I was like, ‘Of course we’re together. This makes so much sense, the way nothing has ever made sense before.’”
