"Playing a bad guy is always more fun than playing the good guy."

Margot Elise Robbie (born 2 July 1990 in Dalby) is an Australian actress and producer.

She started off in Australian independent films before joining the cast of Neighbours. Following her move to the United States, she starred in the short-lived flight attendant drama Pan Am.

She's become something of a breakout star due to her role in Martin Scorsese's well-received The Wolf of Wall Street, for which she gained critical acclaim. Her following breakout role came from portraying the first live-action film version of perennial DC Comics Ensemble Dark Horse Harley Quinn in David Ayer's Suicide Squad. She also has appeared on Saturday Night Live. She eventually got nominated at the Oscars for her acclaimed role of Tonya Harding in I, Tonya.

Associated tropes:

  • Badass Adorable: For her role as Harley Quinn she had to do extensive training in martial arts and acrobatics, as well as being able to hold her breath for Six Minutes without passing out.
  • Femme Fatale: Often plays roles of this nature, such as in The Wolf of Wall Street, Focus, and Suicide Squad.
  • Ms. Fanservice:
  • She's Got Legs: The Wolf of Wall Street did a rather memorable fixation on her long, well-toned, shapely legs, which later came in handy for memes regarding Leonardo DiCaprio's Oscar luck. She got to show them off again when she portrayed Harley Quinn in Suicide Squad.
  • Shoe Size Angst: She is a size 8.5, which is rather disproportionate to her 5'6'' frame.
    “I have big feet. Do you know how embarrassing it is when you ask for a shoe and they look at you like, ‘No, we don’t make these heels for Bigfoot, sorry,. And I’m 5’6. I’m not that tall!”
