Margot Robbie and her British producer boyfriend Tom Ackerley tied the knot in a beautiful Gold Coast wedding this summer, but despite their happy union, the actress has revealed that she doesn’t wear her wedding ring all the time – in fact, she only wears it at the weekend.

Speaking to Australian Vogue, the Suicide Squad star revealed that she can’t wear her diamonds when she’s working, as it would distract from the character that she’s playing on screen. ‘I obviously can’t wear it during the week when I’m working – I don’t want to lose it on set!’ she said.

She also revealed that getting married hasn’t changed their relationship, but it’s also not a magic bullet for amplifying it, either: ‘That’s the thing, [Tom and I] were best friends and roommates before and now we’re like best friends and roommates still, so nothing’s really changed at all.’

The couple famously shared a multi-bedroom flat share in Clapham with friends before tying the knot, frequently seen at infamous graduate-friendly nightclub Infernos on the high street.

After much speculation, and despite being able to keep it almost entirely secret, the newly-weds announced their marriage on Instagram with a tongue-in-cheek post of Robbie showing her wedding finger to the camera while they kissed.

It came after Robbie led reporters to believe that she’d actually been married for three years already, but she was just referring to the amount of time that she’d been dating Ackerley.

The two met while working on World War II romance Suite Francaise, alongside Michelle Williams and Mattias Schoenearts. Ackerley was a producer on the film, and Robbie has spoken before about how she didn’t think he liked her as anything more than a friend.

"I was the ultimate single gal,’ she told Vogue in 2016. ‘The idea of relationships made me want to vomit. And then this crept up on me. We were friends for so long. I was always in love with him, but I thought, “Oh, he would never love me back. Don't make it weird, Margot. Don't be stupid and tell him that you like him.” And then it happened, and I was like, “Of course we're together. This makes so much sense, the way nothing has ever made sense before.”
