The actress and new face of Calvin Klein calls in from work.
2:00 P.M. I don’t have a daily routine per se. It’s dictated by whatever job I’m working on, and at the moment I’m in Budapest filming an indie movie called Terminal. I’m the lead character and also a producer, so it’s very busy. We’re doing night shoots, which I’m so happy about because I hate waking up early in the morning. These days I get up mid-afternoon and have what I call green stuff. I don’t know the name of it, but it’s an immune-boosting powder that you mix in with a bit of juice. My mom used to make me take it if I was getting sick, but now when I’m doing jobs I take it every day. If you get sick, you know, people can’t film. It tastes disgusting, but it’s good for you. After drinking that, I take a quick shower. I use Dr. Lancer’s cleanser. When I get out, I dab on some La Prairie eye cream. There’s a dermatologist in Australia who has a skin-care line called Bloc Cosmetics; I like the day-night moisturizer. So that’s my beauty regime. Then I make a quick cup of tea, grab all my stuff, and go. I bring Dilmah tea with me everywhere, and when I’m in England I drink PG Tips. Whenever someone makes me a cup of tea, I’m like, “Imagine you’re making it for a small child—really milky and sweet.” I probably drink at least 10 teas a day. In our family, a cup of tea is the answer to everything. When you walk in, you get offered a cup of tea. If something goes wrong, someone will be like, “I’ll make you a cup of tea.” If something good happens, they will be like, “Great! We’ll make you a cup of tea.”
Margot is gracing the cover of the June issue of Vogue US Magazine! Outtakes from the photoshoot have been released as well as the interview which you can read below. Margot & her The Legend of Tarzan co-star Alexander Skarsgård look STUNNING in the new photoshoot shot by Mert Alas & Marcus Piggott.
With two major blockbusters on the horizon, her own production company, and a take-no-prisoners approach to the world at large, Margot Robbie is summer’s brightest-burning Hollywood star.
When Margot Robbie popped up in The Big Short last year for a 60-second cameo—by definition, playing herself—to explain what “shorting” a bond means while drinking Dom Pérignon in the bathtub of a billionaire’s Malibu condo, I subconsciously shorted her. Here, it seemed, was that girl who invites you to stare and then tells you to fuck off if you stare for too long. The fact that just two years prior she so ferociously inhabited the role of the hottest gold digger in the history of cinema in Martin Scorsese’s The Wolf of Wall Street, permanently lodging herself in the collective male libido, served only to reinforce my concern that she might be some new breed of high-maintenance superpredator. Thankfully, the cameo turned out to be a clever little lie in a movie all about big fat ones. This was Margot Robbie playing her caricature—the retrograde Playboy fantasy in permanent soft-focus.
EDIT: I replaced MQ outtakes with exclusive HQs. If you wanna use them, be sure to give a credit back to margoterobbie.com!
The cover star of Oyster #108: The Origins Issue is Margot Robbie, an actor who needs little introduction for anyone who grew up on a nightly dose of Neighbours or caught a little film called The Wolf of Wall Street.
Writer Sarah Nicole Prickett sat down with Margot in LA to play a game of M.A.T.C.H. during which details about Margot’s mum, tea preference and versatile laugh emerged. Read an excerpt from the story below and grab a copy of our May issue for the whole enchilada.
The game of M.A.T.C.H. is simple. It’s an acronym for the various structures you might one day, depending on your fortune, call home: Mansion, Attic, Toilet, Church, House. You write the five letters at the top of a piece of paper. Below you write the names of five places, usually cities or countries, in which you might live; five people you might marry; five makes of cars you might drive. You play the game with a partner, who takes a pen or pencil and makes marks on the paper until you, with your eyes closed, say stop. If the number of marks you happen to stop at is six, your partner crosses out every sixth option, going around and around the page until there is one option, no longer a choice, in each category.
