Amazing news to all Margot fans! It has been announced that our girl will host Saturday Night Live season premiere, on October 1st! Margot doesn’t really know when to stop, eh? Variety was one of the many sources to release a statement, and you can read it bellow. We don’t know about you guys but we are really looking forwards to seeing Margot on the show!
Margot Robbie (“Suicide Squad”) will host the 42nd season premiere of “Saturday Night Life” alongside musical guest the Weeknd, NBC announced on Thursday.
The Australian actress was most recently seen as Harley Quinn in the summer blockbuster “Suicide Squad,” also starring Will Smith and Jared Leto. Robbie has also been in films such as “The Legend of Tarzan,” “Whiskey Tango Foxtrot,” and “The Wolf of Wall Street.” Her upcoming projects include starring in the film adaption of Matt Ruff’s novel “Bad Monkeys,” as well as lending her voice for the Dreamworks animated film “Larrikins,” scheduled for a 2018 release.
Two-time Grammy Award winner and Oscar nominee the Weeknd will return as musical guest after first appearing on the show in March 2016. His upcoming album, “Starboy,” is scheduled to be released Nov. 25.
Earlier this month, NBC announced that three new cast members — Mikey Day, Alex Moffat, and Melissa Villaseñor — were slated to join the variety series’ upcoming season. Day, Moffat, and Villaseñor will take the places of former cast members Taran Killam, Jay Pharoah and Jon Rudnitsky.
The 42nd season premiere of “SNL” will air Saturday, Oct. 1 at 11:30 p.m. “SNL” is produced in association with Broadway Video, and created and executive produced by Lorne Michaels.
Following up her encounter with Elle magazine, Margot sat down with The Cut to talk not only about Calvin Klein’s fragrance Deep Euphoria but also about her love for Harry Potter and character scents.
While Vanity Fair may find Margot Robbie “too fresh to be pegged,” she’s pretty willing to do it herself — at least when it comes to Harry Potter. “I manipulated the answers,” she said, when I ask the admitted Potter nerd (on Jimmy Kimmel, she showed a photo of herself at 13 with glasses, braces, and holding a cup of tea and a Harry Potter book), whether she’s ever taken a Sorting Hat quiz. During a press day from London as the new face of deep Euphoria Calvin Klein, I forgot to ask Robbie what her patronus would be, but I did find out where she thinks the Sorting Hat would place her, the weird smell Jared Leto thought the Joker would have, and her thoughts on not putting down other women.
Did you play a specific character in the deep Euphoria shoot?
That was the tricky part. With any kind of photo shoot or campaign, they want to see you be yourself, but what I do at work is to play someone else. Photo shoots are terrifying. Photographers are like, “Just show me you!” and I’m like, “Oh, me? I wouldn’t be doing this. I wouldn’t be sprawled out on a couch like this. I would be in a tracksuit.”
But Francis Lawrence, a film director, did the campaign, so it was so much easier for me to sit down with him and say, “Okay, so here’s the concept. This is where you are. This is what you’re thinking.” We’re blurring the lines between fantasy and reality so you can associate things with your own experiences and you can kind of fabricate the world you’re in at the same time.
What was your first scent memory?
I remember being a kid and seeing my mom’s perfumes lined up on the bathroom bench. I was definitely aware that only older women — grown-up women — wore perfume. I was so thrilled at the idea that I was going to be grown up and be able to wear perfume, too. Whenever I smell my mum, I feel like a little kid again.
Hello Margot fans! Our favorite Aussie is currently promoting Calvin Klein’s new frangrance Deep Euphoria as she is the face of the campaign as most of you already know. Recently she sat down with Elle, where she spoke about the advertising campaign and watched herself in the commercial. You may read the interview bellow (and under the cut).
“This is so weird,” says Margot Robbie. She’s at London’s Rosewood Hotel watching—trying to watch, anyway—her own commercial. It’s for Calvin Klein’s heady fragrance Deep Euphoria, and it’s kind of funny: one of those “Is this a dream?” plot lines with a neon purple rave and shirtless skater boys. (We’re not complaining.) “It’s cool, right?” Robbie giggles. “But seeing yourself on TV… it’s never not strange.”
What’s funny: If you’re not Margot Robbie, watching her onscreen is a pretty regular thing. From The Wolf of Wall Street to The Legend of Tarzan and Suicide Squad, the Aussie actress has steadily crept into Hollywood’s A-List. She’s also become a fashion favorite, sporting Saint Laurent to the Oscars and Gucci on her latest press tour.
But do we really know anything about Margot Robbie? We weren’t sure, so we asked her some questions—weird ones, for real—to get some more information.
You’re famously hands-on with your projects. How involved were you in the Deep Euphoria ad? Did you cast the hot guys yourself?
I didn’t, but I was very happy with [Calvin Klein’s] choice. I was chatting with them at one point, and I could tell I was starting to flirt with them. I said to one of the guys, “What are you doing after this?” and he says, “Well, I’ve got to go back to school.” And I was like, “Oh, cool! College?” No. Not college. [High] school. I thought, “Oh. My. God. You’re 17 years old. I’m officially a cougar! I’m ‘The Older Woman!’ This has never happened to me before!”
Ah, your first Mrs. Robinson moment.
So many of my friends are older, and the people I work with are older. I guess I’ve gotten used to hearing people say, “Oh, you’re so young,” even though I never really agreed with that. Now I get their perspective. And it does feel bizarre, having someone in your work space who’s so much younger than you.Read More

Hello Margot fans! More great news have been announced– after yesterday’s report that Margot had signed a first-look deal with Warner Bros. today it was announced that Terminal has been sold around the world! Highland Film Group was the company to handle the sales at Toronto International Film Festival. The Hollywood Reporter was the one to break the news, and you can read the article bellow.
Vaughn Stein’s Terminal, starring Margot Robbie, has sold out around the world.
Highland Film Group handled international sales on the noir thriller, which also stars Simon Pegg, Max Irons, Dexter Fletcher and Mike Myers, at the Toronto Film Festival. CAA is handling domestic rights.
The film, which recently wrapped principal photography, sold in the following territories: Australia (Pasatiempo Pictures), CIS (Mauris), Eastern Europe (Pasatiempo Pictures), France (Metropolitan), Germany (Square One), Greece (Tanweer), Hong Kong (Panorama), Iceland (Sam Film), Italy (IIF), Korea (Pasatiempo Pictures), Latin America (Swen), Malaysia (Mega Film), Middle East (ECS), Portugal (Cinemundo), Taiwan (Cai Chang), Turkey (Fabula), Scandinavia (Mis Label), the UK (Icon), Pan Asia TV (FOX), the Philippines (ABS, CBN), South Africa (Pasatiempo Pictures), and Vietnam (MVP).
Terminal follows two hit-men (Fletcher and Irons) who head out on a borderline suicide mission for a mysterious employer and a high paycheck. Along the way, the unlikely pair come across a dynamic woman (Robbie) that may be more involved than they had originally suspected.
Robbie, who most recently starred in Suicide Squad, also produced Terminal alongside Tom Ackerley, Josey McNamara and Sophia Kerr under their LuckyChap Entertainment banner. David Barron of BeaglePug Molly Hassell, and HFG’s Arianne Fraser also are producing. HFG arranged financing with Ingenious Media, RuYi Media and Miscellaneous Entertainment. Executive producers are John Jencks, D. Todd Shepherd, Joe Simpson, George Waud, Shelley Madison, Charles Auty, Simon Williams, Delphine Perrier and Henry Winterstern.
Warner Bros. loves Margot Robbie. That is a fact as it has just been announced that Margot has signed a first-look deal with the studios to develop and produce feature movies through her LuckyChap Entertainment banner! For those of you who might be confused, LuckyChap Entertainment is a production company owned by Margot, Tom Ackerley, Josey Mcnamara and Sophia Kerr. You can check out our page dedicated to the production company for more information. The Hollywood Reporter was the one to break the news, and you can read their article bellow!
Margot Robbie is setting down roots at Warner Bros.
The Aussie actress is signing a first-look deal with the studio behind her summer Suicide Squad to develop and produce feature films through her LuckyChap Entertainment banner.
Robbie, whose breakout performance came in Martin Scorsese’s Wolf of Wall Street, is only 26 years old but has quickly grasped control of her career in a way few actors, especially female actors, do, steadily wading into the world of producing.
She is in post on her first movie as a producer, the upcoming neo noir thriller Terminal. Robbie is also developing and producing a Tonya Harding biopic, I, Tonya, where she will play the disgraced figure skater, and developing an adaptation of Bad Monkeys, a novel by Matt Ruff with Bluegrass Films’ Scott Stuberand Dylan Clark for Universal Pictures.
Warners has built a relationship with the actress, who has starred in Focus and The Legend of Tarzan for the studio before becoming one of the key factors why Suicide Squad grossed over $700 million worldwide.
The actress already has two projects set at Warners — a Suicide Squad spinoff for her character Harley Quinn (as well as other DC heroines) that she will executive produce, and an adaptation of Dean N. Jensen’s Queen of the Air, to which she is attached to star.
The first-look deal underlines Warners’ renewed focus on female-driven storytelling and comes after some notables moves from the Burbank-based studio.
It created the Warner Bros. Emerging Film Directors Workshop earlier this year as a program to increase female voices, among other under-represented sectors, and was spearheaded by the studio’s president, creative development and worldwide production Greg Silverman.
