Margot Robbie Admits She Sometimes Has a ‘Meltdown’ When Trying to Cope with Fame
During an interview with Vogue Australia, Margot Robbie revealed that even though her career has caused her to have some meltdowns, she has no regrets
Describing what it’s like to be the center of your own business — Robbie runs a production company called LuckyChap with her husband Tom Ackerley and producing partners Josey McNamara and Sophia Kerr — Robbie said, “It’s hard.”
“Having a business is stressful and time-consuming, but it’s incredibly rewarding,” she added, before admitting that being a famous actress and running her own company can be too much sometimes. “There are obviously a lot of times where I’ll have a meltdown and go: ‘I can’t do it anymore.’ And you miss out on a lot of things, like you rarely go on holidays, you miss everyone’s weddings, everyone’s birthdays. I haven’t been home once this year, I haven’t seen my best friends, my nephew.”
But even though her career demands that Robbie make sacrifices in her personal life, the Suicide Squad actress said “it’s also enormously satisfying to build something and to be a part of something.”
“It’s wild to think it’s been 10 years since Neighbours,” she added. “It’s so crazy because time has flown, but at the same time, so much has happened. I’m thrilled with where I’m at in my career. I have absolutely no regrets, every experience has been incredible, character-building and career-shaping.”

She also opened up about how getting married to Ackerley — which she confirmed by posting a photo on Instagram of the couple kissing as she held up her ring — hasn’t changed anything about their relationship.
“We were best friends and roommates before and now we’re like best friends and roommates still, so nothing’s really changed at all. Other than the fact that I get to wear this [her engagement ring] on the weekends,” she said.
But don’t worry — Robbie has a good reason for keeping her engagement ring off for most of the week. “I can’t obviously wear it during the week when I’m working — I don’t want to lose it on set,” she added.
Although Robbie has been notoriously mum about her relationship with Ackerley, in the May issue of Vogue, Robbie described Ackerley as “the best-looking guy in London,” and gushed about how she fell for her beau.
“I was the ultimate single gal. The idea of relationships made me want to vomit. And then this crept up on me,” she told the publication.
“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,’ ” she continued. “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.’ ”
The Australian actress and the British assistant director first met in 2013 on the set of the World War II drama Suite Francaise. The pair were spotted on several PDA-packed dates later in June 2014. In December of 2016, the couple had a quiet wedding in Byron Bay, Australia.
