YOU can take the girl out of Queensland, but you can’t take Queensland out of the girl.
A barefoot Margot Robbie wandered out of her parents’ Gold Coast home yesterday, clearly enjoying the Australian sunshine.
The actress, who is set to star in the Hollywood films Tarzan and Suicide Squad (opposite Will Smith, Jai Courtney and Cara Delevingne), clearly has not let movie fame go to her head.
Her personal mode of transport while at home was a far cry from a limousine. Instead she opted for a little family runaround, with P-plates firmly in place.
The 24-year-old, who appeared opposite Leonardo Di Caprio in The Wolf Of Wall Street, has been enjoying her downtime with her friends in Australia and attended a wedding on the weekend.
Among the other lists to be revealed Tuesday is the Top 10 Breakout Stars, which features actors entering the annual Top 100 for the first time. No. 1 on the Breakout list is Margot Robbie (The Wolf of Wall Street), who is also No. 3 in the Top 10.

Will Smith, Tom Hardy, Margot Robbie, Jared Leto are officially set to star in Suicide Squad, Warner Bros. announced Tuesday.
Also cast in the movie based on the DC Entertainment villains-forced-to-be-heroes are Jai Courtney and Cara Delevingne. Much of the castings have been previously reported, but the studio also confirmed which characters the actors will play.
Smith will play Deadshot, best known as a Batman villain, while Hardy plays the group’s leader, Rick Flagg.
Leto will take on the Joker, while Robbie will play Harley Quinn, his on-and-off girlfriend. Courtney will be Boomerang, while Delevingne, the model-turned-actress who is also in Warners’ Pan tentpole, will play Enchantress, a sorceress.
David Ayer is writing the script as well as directing.
Charles Roven and Richard Suckle are producing. Exec producing are Zack Snyder and Deborah Snyder, who are already shepherding many of the DC movies, as well as Colin Wilson and DC’s COO Geoff Johns.
Jesse Eisenberg, who was rumored to be involved with the movie, is not part of the official team, nor the official cast, according to sources. But that does not rule out a cameo appearance for him or other actors playing villains or heroes in the Warners’ other DC-based movies.
“The Warner Bros. roots are deep on this one,” said Greg Silverman, president, creative development and worldwide production, in the announcement.
“David Ayer returns to the studio where he wrote Training Day and brings his incredible ability to craft multidimensional villains to this iconic DC property with a cast of longtime Warner collaborators Will Smith and Tom Hardy, and other new and returning favorites: Margot, Jared, Jai and Cara,” Silverman continued. “We look forward to seeing this terrific ensemble, under Ayer’s amazing guidance, give new meaning to what it means to be a villain and what it means to be a hero.”
The movie has a release date of Aug. 5, 2016.

Australian actresses Margot Robbie, 24, and Rose Byrne, 35, are the frontrunners to play Princess Mary of Denmark in a new miniseries next year.
Earlier this month, Channel 10 confirmed it was bringing the story of Mary’s life to the small screen.
Titled Mary: The Making of a Princess, the production is being produced by Fremantle Media Australia – and according to the Gold Coast Bulletin – local girl, Margot, who recently starred in The Wolf of Wall Street is among the contenders to play the Tasmanian-born royal.
Mary Donaldson famously met Crown Prince Frederik during the Sydney Olympics at a pub. Four years later the couple were married. They now have four children, Prince Christian, Princess Isabella, Princess Josephine and Prince Vincent.
The miniseries is expected to be shot next year in Australia and Denmark.
With beauty and determination, the actress Margot Robbie has seduced the best of them—Scorsese, DiCaprio, and, in this special project for W, even the artist Bill Viola.
“I’ve been practicing in my bathtub,” Margot Robbie said as she arrived at the Long Beach, California, studio of the artist Bill Viola. Viola, who was the subject of a major retrospective this past summer at the Grand Palais in Paris, is known for his thematically epic videos—he is concerned with nothing less than life and death—and, heightening the biblical overtones, he often uses water and fire in his work. On a cool, early-fall day, Robbie, an actress on the brink of major stardom, would serve as his muse: She would slowly be submerged in water. “I am so excited,” Robbie continued. “I’ve been holding my breath to see how long I can go without turning blue.”

Margot Robbie, best known for her role in Martin Scorsese’s The Wolf of Wall Street, is reportedly joining the cast of David Sayer’s Suicide Squad as Harley Quinn, according to sources close to Collider.
The Australian actress is currently filming Tarzan where she will star as Jane, and has upcoming roles in the upcoming films Focus with Will Smith and 2015 sci-fi release Z for Zachariah. Robbie has reportedly beat out English model Cara Delevingne for the role of Harley in the new DC Comics film.
Warner Bros. announced its upcoming Suicide Squad release last month, alongside a slew of DC Comics super hero movies, including team-based films based on Justice League and individual movies for characters The Flash, Aquaman, Cyborg and Wonder Woman, stretching into 2020.
DC has 10 movies planned to hit theaters between 2016 and 2020, Time Warner announced during an investor meeting at the time, kicking off with Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.
Suicide Squad is scheduled to hit theaters in 2016.
Variety has the exclusive first look photo from Craig Zobel’s Z for Zachariah,” starring Chris Pine, Margot Robbie and Chiwetel Ejiofor.
Adapted from Robert C. O’Brien post-apocalyptic 1974 novel, the thriller follows a small-town girl (Robbie) who lives alone on a farm in the only valley with breathable air in the wake of nuclear war. Her world is turned upside down when two strangers wander in from the forest.
The film is directed by Craig Zobel, produced by Material Pictures, and exec produced by Lucky Hat Entertainment along with Silver Reel and Lotus Entertainment, who is handling international sales.
The sci-fier is slated for release next year.
SEARING spring sun has done little to cool the fashion and fun of the final day of the Melbourne Cup Carnival.
The star of the day among the rich, famous and their hangers on was Wolf of Wall Street star Margot Robbie in the Swisse marquee.
“It’s so good to be back in Melbourne, I miss my family and friends all the time so it’s good to see them,” said The Wolf of Wall Street star, wearing Ellery.
Robbie praised Melbourne as the place where it all began for her, as she caught up with some of her former Neighbours co-stars in the Swisse marquee.
“I learnt so much while I was living in Melbourne and working on Neighbours,” she said.
“It’s always special and at the forefront of my mind. Neighbours is an education that you can’t get anywhere else. It prepares you for work overseas and in Hollywood.”
Meanwhile, Robbie’s boyfriend Tom Ackerley, slipped into the marquee unnoticed about an hour after the actor arrived.
Ackerley, an assistant film director based in London, will meet Robbie’s family while in Melbourne.
“It’s good,” Robbie replied when asked about her relationship with Ackerley.
“He hasn’t been to Melbourne before. We only have limited time here.”
The couple were snapped last week in London looking loved-up.
Robbie will be next seen in Hollywood blockbuster Tarzan and Jane, alongside True Blood star Alexander Skarsgard.
“I wanted Jane to be very independent,” Robbie said.
“She’s obviously co-dependent because it’s a massive love story between her and Tarzan, but I wanted her to be very capable when she was on her own — and also fierce and intelligent.”
