Margot Robbie scored a knockout in her first heavyweight drama as Tonya Harding in the biopic “I, Tonya.” She’s up for a Best Actress Oscar. The role required quite a transformation for the actress who’s known for her natural wholesome, yet sensual beauty.
IM reported in January that Robbie was seemingly everywhere. We weren’t kidding!
Over the last six months, she’s appeared in American Elle twice, British Elle, W magazine twice, British Vogue and Vogue Australia.
In her latest shoot, Robbie, 27, takes a victory lap on the cover of Harper’s Bazaar Australia. It’s hard to take your eyes off her mesmerizing eyes and lips.
Last year she gained the recognition she was due. Time magazine named her as one of the 100 most influential people in the world and Forbes featured her in their 30 Under 30 list.
Robbie, who was born and raised on a farm in Australia’s Queensland, scored a breakout in Martin Scorsese’s 2013 black comedy “The Wolf of Wall Street.” She played opposite Leonardo DiCaprio as a Wall Street Swindler.
She solidified her acting cred in 2015’s “The Big Short,” followed by comedy “Whiskey, Tango, Foxtrot,” action-adventure “The Legend of Tarzan” and “Suicide Squad,” all in 2016.
In “I, Tonya,” she not only stars but serves as the producer. The story focuses on Tonya Harding, a talented ice skater, who became involved in a plot to injure her chief rival, Nancy Kerrigan, ahead of the 1991 National Championships.
It became one of the most infamous scandals in sports history and sent Harding on a downward spiral.
“As a producer I’m looking for amazing female roles,” she tells the magazine. “People in Hollywood are now making a conscious effort to provide female characters and female-driver content.
“But the next step is having female voices telling those stories, through female directors and writers,” she adds.
