At just 26, Margot Robbie has already sauntered her way to the top of the Hollywood A-list, and it looks like she'll be staying there for a long time. Aside from being an incredibly talented actress, and even doing most of her own stunt work, she is — obviously — a smokin' hot babe. From her signature golden locks down to the high-heeled foot she shoved in Leonardo DiCaprio's face, we just can't get enough of Margot Robbie. Let's look back at the six hottest moments of her career so far.
1. Master Manipulator In The Wolf Of Wall Street
When she was only 23, Robbie got the female lead in Martin Scorsese's The Wolf of Wall Street, starring opposite superstar Leonardo DiCaprio, and was catapulted into the limelight.
In the first sex scene between Naomi and Jordan, Scorsese offered to let Robbie wear a robe, but she decided that Naomi's character was so confidant about her body, she'd go totally naked. That was the first nude scene of her career. But before you start thinking she was 100 percent confidant all the time, Robbie admitted she was so nervous about filming her first sex scene with DiCaprio she had three shots of tequila at 9AM! And that super hot scene where they go at it like animals on a pile of money? Well, here's what Robbie told Cosmopolitan UK:
"I got a million paper cuts on my back from all that money! It's not as glamorous as it sounds. If anyone is ever planning on having sex on top of a pile of cash: don't. Or maybe real money is a bit softer, but the fake money is like paper, and when I got up off the bed, I turned around to get my robe and everyone gasped. I said, 'What is it?' And they said, 'You look like you've been whipped a million times. Your back is covered in a thousand red scratches."
2. Up-And-Coming Con Woman In Focus
After getting hot and heavy with Leo in Wolf of Wall Street, Robbie got yet another role playing the love interest of a Hollywood heavy hitter. This time, she partnered up with Will Smith, playing Jess Barrett, a small-time criminal that wants to break into the world of organized crime, of which Nicky Spurgeon (Will Smith) is the king. Their chemistry on-screen is undeniable, but she almost didn't make it to the audition on time! In an interview with EW, she said that she'd been on vacation before and got the call about the audition last minute:
"By the time I get to New York they’ve lost my luggage. My shoes are wet, my denim shorts are damp, I’ve got no makeup, no clothes, and I’d calculated that in the last 50-something hours I had six hours sleep in total, and I walk into the audition and it turns out Will was running late.
He comes in and says, ‘Sorry I’m late, I was coming from Queens.’ And I look at Will and I was like, ‘Yeah? Well, I just came from an island off Croatia and I’m here on time."
3. Bubbly Babe In The Big Short
You know you're a major sex symbol when you get asked to be in a movie as yourself, lounging naked in a bathtub, sipping champagne and explaining exposition in your adorable Aussie accent. But really, can you think of a more interesting way to learn about sub-prime mortgages than from nude Margot Robbie?
4. Philanthropic Fox For Red Nose Day
Robbie climbed back out of her clothes and into the bathtub to spoof herself and raise awareness for Red Nose Day, a holiday when lots of celebrities get together to be funny and raise money for kids in need. She's gorgeous inside and out!
5. Independent Ingenue In Legend Of Tarzan (2016)
She might have been struck speechless by Alexander Skarsgard's stunning physique, but Robbie's Jane in The Legend of Tarzan is a stunner in her own right. But arguably the most gorgeous thing about Robbie in this role is the independence and strength she brings to the part. Both Skarsgard and director David Yates gushed about how she was able to take the character away from the damsel-in-distress trope it so often falls into. Skarsgard said this to EW about his co-star:
“It was very important that we didn’t want it to feel archaic or dated, where it’s like, tough guy has to save the poor girl. You have to feel that she’s strong and independent, and when you cast Margot, you’ll definitely get that.”
Yates added this long list of compliments:
“If you enter the jungle with anybody, you want to go with Margot Robbie. She’s practical, and she’s smart, and she’s resourceful. And she can take care of herself.”
6. The Clown Princess Of Crime In Suicide Squad (2016)
This summer, Robbie swung from jungle heroine to super villain without missing a beat. She starred in DC's Suicide Squad as fan favorite Harley Quinn —and no matter what you thought of the movie —there's no denying that this was one of Robbie's sexiest moments to date. From her killer cotton candy hair, to doing most of her own gymnastic stunts, to those itty bitty little shorts, Robbie proved even when she's not doing sex scenes or getting totally naked, she's still one of the hottest women in Hollywood. And, she's already signed on to do her own Untitled Harley Quinn project in the (hopefully?) near future!
