The Margot Corner
- margoterobbie.net -

Hello Margot fans! Earlier this morning, our girl was a guest at The Ellen DeGeneres Show to promote ‘I, Tonya‘. Of all her talk show appearances lately, this has got to be my favorite! They discussed her first meeting with Ellen (keywords: Tahiti, former president Obama, her husband’s super short shorts), how she got injured during ‘I, Tonya’ filming but had to suck it up because she was also the producer, and Tonya Harding. She also participated in an adorable contest with fellow Aussie Chris Hemsworth, were they faced off in the battle of The Best Aussie! The Ellen Show is always a joy to watch, and Margot and Chris were just hilarious. Make sure to watch the clips below!

Once you’ve watched the videos, make sure to head over to our gallery for high definition screen captures from the episode. The Margot and Chris ones in costume are adorable beyond words!

Margot is kicking off the new year with a bang! As one of many celebrities featured in British Vogue’s new Hollywood Portfolio, our girl covers the magazine’s February issue. Margot poses together with Nicole Kidman for a stunning cover, and we have the first photos in our gallery! The portfolio is photographed by Juergen Teller and styled by Edward Enninful, and according to the magazine itself, “the portrait of the duo sets the tone for the 20-page Hollywood portfolio within the editor-in-chief’s third issue of #NewVogue. Entitled “Best Performances”, the shoot celebrates the stars whose Oscar-worthy roles embody cinema’s new mood and Hollywood’s reevaluation of itself.”

The same photoshoot is also featured in W Magazine’s Best Performances issue. Head over to our gallery to check out photos and scans from both the covers and the photoshoot! We hope to have more soon. Below you can watch the stars share their “firsts” with British Vogue; “from first loves to first auditions and their earliest memories of London, the stars of Vogue’s Hollywood portfolio, featuring Margot Robbie, Tom Hanks, Gal Gadot, Daniel Kaluuya, Diane Kruger, Hong Chau, Andrew Garfield, Salma Hayek, Mary J. Blige, Michelle Williams, Robert Pattinson, Gary Oldman, Jessica Chastain, Saoirse Ronan and Timothée Chalamet share their “firsts”.”

Vogue | MARGOT ROBBIE and Nicole Kidman are the cover stars of the February 2018 issue of British Vogue.

Photographed by Juergen Teller and styled by Edward Enninful, the portrait of the duo sets the tone for the 20-page Hollywood portfolio created in collaboration with W magazine. Entitled “Best Performances”, the shoot celebrates the stars whose Oscar-worthy roles embody cinema’s new mood and Hollywood’s reevaluation of itself.

“When I first decided that Vogue should put together a star-filled portfolio featuring the biggest names in current cinema to mark the exceptional 2017/18 awards season,” Enninful said, “who knew Hollywood would soon be top of the global news agenda?

“It was clear to me that the mood needed to change. That it was time for honesty. Enter photographer Juergen Teller, my long-time collaborator and the world’s most gifted documenter of celebrity at its most intimate and off-duty. Over four days in Los Angeles, it was great to spend time with him and some of today’s amazing talents as they look to reshape how Hollywood does business in a post-Weinstein world, including cover stars Margot Robbie and Nicole Kidman – two of the most straight-talking professionals I’ve ever had the pleasure of working with.”

Of her ascendant career, Robbie told interviewer Lynn Hirschberg: “My family has no connection to the entertainment industry whatsoever, so when I started acting, everyone was like, ‘That’s fun, but when are you going to actually get a real job?’ And that went on for years. They’re impressed for five seconds, and then they’re, ‘So anyway, the dog threw up today.’”

Kidman, meanwhile, spoke of the openings in Hollywood: “I still feel like I’m the kid at drama school hoping to get a role. I always feel like I’m so fortunate and lucky to have the job. Part of my job now is to give back and help create opportunities for the next generation – particularly with female directors, because it is so imbalanced.”

Enninful added of the experience: “Working on the annual Hollywood Best Performances shoot with the incredible writer Lynn Hirschberg is one of the highlights of my year. Lynn’s unparalleled knowledge of Hollywood and her uncanny ability to spot the next big thing is what makes her the best in the industry.”

Margot and some of the biggest names in Hollywood, such as Nicole Kidman, Emma Stone, Jake Gyllenhaal and Jennifer Lawrence, have teamed up for a pledge called “I Will Not Be Silent” with W Magazine. After the Harvey Weinstein scandal erupted a few months ago, when numerous women accused the producer of sexual misconduct and assault, a number of other allegations of misconduct to be leveled at powerful men in Hollywood, news, and government have surfaced. With this pledge, Margot and the others vow not to be silent if they experience or witness any inappropriate behavior.

2017 is the year of using your voice and standing up for what you believe in. Watch stars including Nicole Kidman, Jennifer Lawrence, Emma Stone, Jake Gyllenhaal, Timothée Chalamet, and Margot Robbie vow not to be silent.

Ahead of the Los Angeles premiere of I, Tonya yesterday (stay tuned for full coverage in a bit!), Margot visited Jimmy Kimmel Live! Chris Pratt hosted the episode, and it was a really fun interview. Margot talked about growing up in Australia, being around lots of venomous snakes, Outback Steakhouse, her first job at 10 years old and I, Tonya, before she had a beer with Chris.

Check out her interview below, and head over to our gallery for high quality stills and photos of Margot arriving. She looked as amazing as always! The jumpsuit she wore when arriving is from the Dior Resort 2018 Collection, and she paired it with some gorgeous Pierre Hardy Slingback heels. I’m personally not a big fan of this outfit – but I love the one she wore for the actual interview!

Margot is the cover star of this week’s Time Out New York! The magazine just released a video clip titled “Face Off with Margot Robbie”, as well as three stunning outtakes from her photoshoot. She looks so beautiful! Check out the clip below, and read on for an interview she did with the magazine about “I, Tonya”. I have also added screen captures from the video to our gallery! We’ll hopefully soon have magazine scans, stay tuned for more updates.

Stamina, flair, toughness: Anyone who tells you acting isn’t a lot like playing sports hasn’t spent much time doing either. Ever since holding her own against a manic Leonardo DiCaprio in The Wolf of Wall Street, Margot Robbie could never be confused for anything less than a fearless competitor. But her latest performance seriously ups the ante: As the disgraced Olympic figure skater Tonya Harding—forever tarnished by her association with the 1994 off-ice attack on Nancy Kerrigan—the 27-year-old actor pulls off one of the most daring feats of empathy of the year. Directed by Craig Gillespie and coproduced by Robbie herself, I, Tonya is a supercharged Scorsesian rise-and-fall sports movie: trashy, funny, devastating and anchored by a star turn that will be talked about long beyond awards season. Born in Australia before living in Brooklyn, London and most recently Los Angeles, Robbie calls herself a gypsy; “home” is a free-floating concept for her. During a relatively quiet moment before the Oscar whirlwind, we connected with Robbie to talk about lacing up for 17-hour shooting days, the Harvey Weinstein scandal and the enigma at the heart of her latest triumph.

Do you miss living in New York?
Oh, my God, are you kidding me? I miss New York all the time. I was in South Williamsburg just before it really blew up, and then I lived in Bed-Stuy for a little bit as well. It was amazing. I think Williamsburg is a little too busy for me now. But six, seven years ago, it was incredible. I miss everything: the restaurants, Brooklyn Bowl, Nitehawk Cinema—I used to go there all the time.

But you’re still a huge New York Rangers fan?
Definitely. I think I’ll always be a Rangers fan.

You played ice hockey growing up, right?
Not growing up, but I played it when I first moved to America [in 2011]. I’m from a coastal town in Australia, so ice sports weren’t really a thing. But The Mighty Ducks was, so I wanted to join a league. I loved it.

What position did you play?
Right wing, but don’t be fooled—I am not any good at it.

Still, the skating must have helped you nail all those triple axels in I, Tonya.
[Sarcastically] Yeah, I can totally do a triple axel. We all underestimated how incredibly difficult that was. When we started planning that scene, we thought, Oh, we’ll just get a stunt double to come in. And our skate choreographer was like, “No one can do a triple axel—you know that, right?” There were only two women in America who could do them, and they’re both Asian, so neither could double for me. We ended up having to CGI it.

I’m crushed. Meanwhile, I love how the movie stresses Harding’s real talents, along with her scrappiness.
She wasn’t one to play by the rules—she was a little rough around the edges—and without that sort of rule-breaking mentality, she wouldn’t have been able to pull off such an amazing sporting achievement: the first U.S. woman to land a triple axel in a competition. The more we got to understand the ice-skating world, the more we appreciated that.

There’s also a subtle class warfare going on here with the other girls and against snobby judges who were shocked by skating routines set to ZZ Top’s “Sleeping Bag.”
She had incredible discipline and drive to make it to where she was, despite her class and her circumstances. Figure skating’s a really expensive sport. Still, she excelled. Tonya’s not necessarily the image they wanted to have. But I think that’s what I like about the film most.

All we mainly remember about Harding is the “incident.” How does one play that mentality? The film is oblique on her culpability.
I think what I was focusing on, overall, was the idea that she was craving love and constantly searching for validation, whether that was from Jeff [Gillooly, Harding’s then husband] or her mom or the public. (Read full interview at source)
