The inimitable Margot Robbie is having a banner year. The I, Tonya actress and producer is nominated for an Academy Award for Best Actress (up against Meryl Streep, so, you know, casual) and at just 27 years old, she has already built a career for herself that most actresses would sacrifice limbs for.
It’s safe to say that from a financial standpoint Robbie would never have to work another day in her life, but it’s her fierce work ethic that has opened so many doors for her. She moved to Melbourne after high school and talked her way onto the popular Australian soap opera Neighbours. She founded her own production company, Lucky Chap Entertainment, shortly after her Wolf of Wall Street fame began to take off. Even now, she doesn’t take her monetary success as a sign to purchase a beach house in Fiji and spend the rest of her days eating ice-cream from a goblet dripping with edible gold (just me?): she spent her honeymoon producing I, Tonya with her husband.
Several articles cited Robbie’s net worth at around $8 million in 2015, so we can only imagine how many zeroes have been added in the years since. (In case you need a refresher, Suicide Squad, The Legend of Tarzan, Peter Rabbit, Goodbye Christopher Robin, and I, Tonya all came in the last few years).
Add to that her recent cover of Elle and the fact that she’s presenting at the Oscars, and we’re pretty sure Robbie has picked up a few more millions since 2015: the height of her career is now.
For Robbie, money means independence, and she’s definitely earned that.
We’re pretty positive she can afford many a little blue box now — and girl deserves that.
Robbie also shows no sign of slowing down anytime soon: According to IMDB we can expect Suicide Squad 2, Mary Queen of Scots, Dreamland, Terminal, and a Harley Quinn standalone film in the coming years.
We can’t wait to see where Robbie’s spectacular career takes her next.
