On the list of its most influential people in the world for 2019, Time magazine rightly named Margot Robbie. She is an actress and film producer who, although still considerably young, has achieved so much in her personal and professional life. She started her career in 2008 and has continuously remained relevant more than a decade later with more than 30 works to her name, both on film and TV.
What is Margot Robbie Famous For?
It is for her career as an actress and film producer that Margot Robbie has come to be famous. In barely a decade of acting, she has risen into becoming one of the most talented actresses in the world as reflected by the many awards and accolades that she has got thus far, as well as her current standing as one of the highest-paid actresses in the world.
Her path to fame started with her birth on July 2, 1990, as Margot Elise Robbie in Dalby, Queensland, Australia, to a wealthy farm owner father and a physiotherapist mother; Doug Robbie and Sarie Kessler.
Her father was said to have paid for four kids to attend private school, but he was not there for them, and because of this, Margot and her siblings; two brothers and a sister have come to be alienated from him as they grew up on the Gold Coast. She showed at a very young age that she was multitalented with her involvement in various sports including rowing, softball, and hockey, as well as dancing.
However, it was acting that had always come naturally to her since she was a little girl when she would play-act and recite lines of films. To improve her obvious talent that had bemused her mother very early enough, Robbie went to Somerset College where she studied drama.
In 2008, Margot Robbie started her professional career at a time when she still had no agent. In the same year, she also got roleS in Vigilante and ICU. She would go on to appear in 4 TV shows in 2008, including Review with Myles Barlow, The Elephant Princess, and Neighbours which continued till 2011.
With other roles to her name, she moved to the United States where she got a role in Pan Am which did not last long before it ended after only a season. However, she soon got her role in The Wolf of Wall Street which became a big break for her. After that, she was also in Focus together with Will Smith, The Legend of Tarzan, and Suicide Squad, among a good number of other works.
Her recognition is in part, thanks to the financial successes she has recorded with works such as About Time which made $87 million from a $12 million budget and The Wolf of Wall Street that returned $ $392 million from a budget of $100 million.

Even though she has not spent too many years as an actress, neither has she appeared in too many productions, the Australian-born star has achieved so much fortune for herself. With that said, Margot Robbie has a net worth that is estimated at $12 million, which is an overwhelming leap from where she came from, having to juggle three jobs when she was still a teenager to make ends meet.
One of the highest-paid actresses at the moment, she made her fortune from her successful career as an actress. But more than that, she has also started out as a producer. Her company, LuckyChao Entertainment is behind the production of her 2017 movie, I, Tonya which earned her an Academy Award nomination, Terminal, and Dreamland.
Together with the financial successes, the Mary, Queen of Scots actress has also received wide praises for her talent and has many nominations and a few awards to show for her hard work and dedication.
