It’s official. We’re obsessed with Margot Robbie. We’re obsessed with her in The Wolf of Wall Street, we’re obsessed with her clothes (we're talking about that blue dress), we’re obsessed with her hair, we’re obsessed with the fact that she got to kiss Leonardo DiCaprio, like, LOADS of times. Yep, she’s one of our new favourite actresses. So here are a few things you need to know about the girl of the moment...

Margot Robbie's Grandparents Have Never Seen The Wolf of Wall Street

We kind of agree with this one. Margot’s Mum Sarrie recently revealed that whilst she was ok with her daughter getting totally naked for her part of Nadine in Wolf – her grandparents might not have been. She said, ‘for the grandparents, no, we decided it probably wouldn't be the best thing for them to see.’

Margot Robbie in Neighbours; Her First Big Break

Yep, just like Kylie Minogue and um, Holly Valance before her, Margot actually started out on our favourite Aussie soap, Neighbours (soz, Home and Away). Margot played Donna Freeman, but had her character written off in 2011. Is it bad to say we don’t remember her? This might jog your memory...

Margot Robbie and Leo Dicaprio Met, but She Wasn't That Bothered

Margot recently revealed to Grazia that when she first met Leonardo DiCaprio she was too busy thinking about her audition to revel in how fit and famous he is. ‘It was at an audition,’ she said of their first meeting, ‘I was more nervous about my audition so I didn’t have time to worry about, ‘Oh I’m about to meet Leo and Marty [Martin Scorsese].’

Margot Got Drunk Before Filming Her Sex Scenes With Leo

Um, we’re not sure quite why she felt the need to do this given that most women would give their right arm (or leg) to get close to Leo – but Margot revealed that when she did her first sex scene with the actor, it wasn’t without a little dutch courage. ‘I did three shots of tequila at like nine in the morning, right before doing it,’ she said.

Margot Beat Kristen Stewart and Jessica Biel For The Part of Nadine Belfort

Er soz guys, but they just like Margot better. No hard feelings, eh?

Margot Robbie and Will Smith's Film 'Focus' Caught the Headlines...

Late last year rumours that Margot was enjoying an affair with her Focus co-star Will Smith went into overdrive after photographs of them larking around in a photobooth were published by an American Magazine. She denied they were having a relationship saying, ‘There's absolutely no truth to the ridiculous rumor. It's disappointing that goofing around on set could be taken so out of context.’

Margot Robbie's Diet

So basically if you want a body like Margot's, then all you have to do is eat fries and drink beer, then snack on a few carrots. She told GQ magazine, 'I don't have a very good diet. I love beer, fries, burgers, but if I have to get in a bikini then I eat carrot sticks for three days. I'm one extreme or the other.'

Margot Robbie's nickname is Maggot

About the only gross thing about her. Margot said, 'Maggot [is my nickname]. It started when I was five, Grade One and I detested it. By the time I was eight I realised it wasn't going anywhere so I embraced it but when I moved to Melbourne people started calling me it and I hadn't even told them it was my nickname.

Margot Robbie is Harley Quinn

Did we mention she's in one of the biggest films to come out this year? In case you've been living under a rock, Margot is set to play the ultimate badass comic villain Harley Quinn in Suicide Squad alongside Will Smith, Jared Leto and Cara Delevingne- who she became pretty close with on set...

Margot Robbie is the new face of Calvin Klein

Margot was delighted to be chosen as the muse for the brand as she said in a statement, ‘I'm thrilled to be the face of Deep Euphoria Calvin Klein. This is my first advertising campaign and I am honored it is with Calvin Klein, an iconic brand I have known and loved for many years.’

Margot Robbie tattooed Cara Delevingne's foot

A little weird, we get it, but in all honesty, who would say 'no' to a tattoo by Margot Robbie? Not us, that's for sure – and not Cara Delevingne either!

The Brit model posted a snap to Instagram of Margot on set of their new film Suicide Squad, dressed in character as Harley Quinn, tattooing her foot. We're not sure what she wrote, but if it followed on from the film director David Ayer's Suicide Squad tattoo, it would have probably said this: 'SKWAD'.
