VOGUE – For this round of 73 Questions, Margot Robbie welcomes us in and talks about her acting career, playing Sharon Tate, and working with Quentin Tarantino.
BUZZFEED – When it was announced that Saoirse Ronan and Margot Robbie would be playing royal rivals in Mary Queen of Scots, there was no doubt it would be worth a watch. Both were Oscar-nominated last year for their respective roles in Lady Bird and I, Tonya, and their resumés were already impressive: Saoirse started acting aged 9, going on to appear in movies like Atonement, Hanna, and The Lovely Bones; Margot is immediately recognisable for playing Harley Quinn, who’ll be getting her own Suicide Squad spinoff next year.
When we at BuzzFeed were given the chance to speak with Saoirse and Margot to promote Mary Queen of Scots in London recently, we couldn’t pass up the opportunity. They told us all about what it was like to finally work together and what kind of roles they’d love to take on next…
Check these beautiful portraits of Margot taken while doing the interview in our gallery! Enjoy 🙂
(Video) ‘Mary Queen Of Scots’: Margot Robbie Dishes On Her Movie Make-Under & Saoirse Ronan Recounts Getting
Access – Margot Robbie, who plays Queen Elizabeth I, and Saoirse Ronan, who plays Mary in “Mary Queen of Scots,” tell Access about the one scene they had together in the film, which saw these two famous monarchs meet. Plus, Margot dishes to Access on her Queen Elizabeth make-under and what they left out, while Saoirse reveals how visiting Scotland helped her get into character.
“Extra’s” Renee Bargh sat down with them both to discuss the film, which centers on the royal rivalry between Queen Elizabeth I and Mary Stuart.
The actresses have met some of the royals, and revealed they would like to meet the newest addition, Meghan Markle.
PEOPLE – Margot Robbie has had a lot of memorable moments in the past twelve months, due in large part to her involvement in I, Tonya, the dark comedy she produced and starred in about disgraced former figure skating champ, Tonya Harding.
Through her work on the film, for which she received her first-ever Oscar nomination, Robbie has become friendly with Harding and throughout the film’s run has shared in several very happy moments with the former figure skater. According to Robbie, the most memorable of them all was a chance meeting she saw between Harding and cult movie icon Tommy Wiseau.
“The craziest thing I’ve witnessed was watching Tonya Harding meeting Tommy Wiseau from The Room,” Robbie tells PEOPLE. “Seeing that collision of worlds was like mind boggling, I was like ‘Oh wow, only in Hollywood.’”
Although the actress has now attended multiple awards shows, the one thing she is still trying to master is having the perfect expression ready for when TV cameras pan to her during live broadcasts.
“It’s so awkward when the camera pans to you during an awards show,” she says. “You’re trying to have the appropriate level of excitement on your face without looking manic on screen. What’s going through my head at the time? I’m probably just wondering when the next meal is going to be served, if they’re going to serve food, most of the time they don’t.”

GUARDIAN CULTURE – The Australian actress has been nominated for her first Academy Award for her role as US figure skater Tonya Harding in the film I, Tonya. Here she practises her Oscars face in preparation for the big night.
THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER – Figure skating’s most notorious character shares memories of the scandal that ended her career with the star who plays her — and reveals she’s back in training.
Margot Robbie waited until filming was just about to begin before she and director Craig Gillespie took a trip to Portland to have lunch with the woman she was about to play. Their second meeting came nearly a year later, when Tonya Harding joined Robbie on the red carpet for I, Tonya‘s Hollywood premiere. The following day, on Dec. 6, Robbie sat down with Harding, 47, for a wide-ranging conversation about the disgraced Olympian’s life now with her current husband, Joe, a heating and air conditioning specialist, and their 6-year-old son, Gordon, as well as the highs and lows of her days on the ice.
While Robbie switched between roles as interviewer and interviewee, Harding spoke candidly about her fraught relationships with both her ex Jeff Gillooly, who spent six months in prison following the 1994 assault on Harding’s then-rival Nancy Kerrigan, and her mother, with whom she’s been estranged since the early 2000s. At one point in the hourlong discussion, during which the former competitor revealed that she was back in training (she’s set to skate in an exhibition at Rockefeller Center in late January), a teary Harding thanked Robbie for not only telling her story but also providing her with closure.

THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER An ingenue turns indie producer with the figure skating biopic ‘I, Tonya’ as she opens up about the downside of starring in ‘Suicide Squad’ (“Now you have to be able to afford security”) and maps out a plan for career longevity: “I don’t want to burn hard and fast and then disappear.”
Before Margot Robbie set out for Hollywood, an agent in her native Australia advised her to prepare to answer a question she’d inevitably be asked when she arrived.
“What do you want out of your career?”
Robbie, then 20 and starring in a local soap opera, took the advice seriously. She began scribbling pages and pages of notes before ultimately whittling her answer down to just three words: “Quality, versatility and longevity.” Nail the first two, she thought, and the third will follow.
Not a half decade later, Robbie had exploded into Hollywood with her breakthrough performance as the fiery wife of Leonardo DiCaprio’s Jordan Belfort in the 2013 box-office smash The Wolf of Wall Street. She’d taken what could have been a forgettable role — described in Terence Winter’s script as the “hottest blonde ever” — and made something memorable out of it. She was promptly deluged with offers to play the “hot wife” or “hot girlfriend” of other A-list actors. Flattered as Robbie was by the sudden attention, such inessential characters didn’t fit into her career plan, and she turned nearly all of them down. “You could read a script and almost pull them out and nothing else would be affected,” she says now, between sips of tea on her back patio in Los Angeles. “Like if you pulled out that card, the card castle wouldn’t come tumbling down, and that’s not that exciting to me.” (Read the rest of the interview at the source)
