Margot Robbie Husband
In 2014 Margot Robbie met Tom Ackerley, a British assistant director, on the set of Suite Française. They lived in the same house together with other friends and in 2016 they got married.
Margot shared a three bedroom house with her friends, Tom being one of them and at the time he was working on a Mission: Impossible sequel. Opening up about the early days of their romance, Robbie admits: ‘We kept it a secret. Because we weren’t really taking it seriously. “Oh, whatever, we’re just mates, we’re just mates.” And then… everyone found out.’
‘Everyone was, like: “No! This is going to ruin our group!” And then it didn’t. It was fine.’
Fast forward a couple of years and Robbie and Ackerley – who is a co-founder of her production company LuckyChap – married in December 2016 in Byron Bay, Australia.
When the pair first married, the Australian star says ‘it was our roommates who told us: “You guys had a wedding. You have to live on your own now.” It honestly hadn’t occurred to us. We were, like: “Hm? What? Just the two of us? That’s gonna be weird.”
‘And the first time we were in a house, the two of us, it was weird. Nice. But we missed having heaps of people around.’
