Hollywood starlet Margot Robbie has been swept off her feet by the son of a Banks Peninsula farmer.
Robbie, on location in Port Levy, is dating former Christ’s College pupil Henry Aitken.
Last year, her role as Naomi Lapaglia, the blonde bombshell trophy wife of stock-market fraudster Leonardo DiCaprio’s character Jordan Belfort, saw Robbie transported to A-list fame overnight.
She had previously received two Logie Award nominations for her role as Donna Freedman (2008-2011) on the soap opera Neighbours.
Several sources have confirmed Aitken and Robbie are a couple.
The Press understands the local lad and The Wolf of Wall Street actress met on the set of movie Z for Zachariah currently being filmed in Canterbury.
Aitken’s close friend, who did not wish to be named, told The Press the pair had been seeing each other for about one month.
Aitken worked in the film’s art department and had become close to Robbie on the film set, he said.
“She’s got quite a few roles lined up so she’s going to be really busy . . . but he is in the film industry too so maybe they can find a way to maintain their relationship.”
He said despite being a Hollywood star, Robbie seemed like the sort of person who was “not interested in celebrity types”.
Aitken’s mother Penny said: “We can’t and won’t comment”.
However, pictures of the new couple have appeared on Aitken’s Facebook page.
Robbie’s mother has also travelled to New Zealand to see her daughter during filming and is believed to have met Aitken.
Robbie, now a brunette, will play Jane in a remake of Tarzan set to be released in 2016.
Aitken’s Facebook page says he now lives in Auckland and studied at the New Zealand Film and Television School.
He is the art director for multimedia production company Sakowski Studios, has a profile on modelling and talent agency Ican’s website and has also worked on feature movies as well as short films and documentaries.
Z for Zachariah also stars Chris Pine of Star Trek and Chiwetel Ejiofor, who is both a Bafta and Oscar nominee for his leading role in 12 Years a Slave.
Paramount Media Home Distribution has officially announced that it will release on Blu-ray acclaimed director Martin Scorsese’s The Wolf of Wall Street (2013), starring Leonardo DiCaprio, Jonah Hill, Margot Robbie, Matthew McConaughey, Jon Favreau, and Jean Dujardin. The release will be available for purchase online and in stores across the nation on March 25th.
Synopsis: Martin Scorsese directs this award-winning account of 1980s New York stockbroker Jordan Belfort’s pursuit of wealth. Leonardo DiCaprio stars as Belfort, who brags about earning just shy of one million dollars a week in one year and has long been involved in manipulating stock prices for his own financial gain. Heading a committed team at his Stratton Oakmont brokerage house in Long Island, it isn’t long before he attracts the attention of the FBI who are suspicious of his increasingly lavish and hedonistic lifestyle. The film was nominated for five Academy Awards, including Best Picture, Best Actor (DiCaprio) and Best Director (Scorsese), and saw DiCaprio pick up the Golden Globe for Best Actor – Music Or Comedy.
Australian actor Margot Robbie continues to cement her status as a major box office drawcard, having been confirmed as Tarzan’s love interest Jane in a 3D live-action remake of the adventures of the jungle-dwelling hero.
The Wolf of Wall Street star will appear alongside True Blood‘s Alexander Skarsgard under Harry Potter director David Yates. The Warner Bros production is scheduled to hit cinemas in July 2016.
Robbie has reportedly beaten Hollywood A-lister and The Amazing Spider-Man actor Emma Stone to the role — the second time Robbie has done so, after pipping Stone to the post of leading lady in the Will Smith rom-com Focus, out later this year.
Also signed up for Tarzan - a reboot of the classic works by Edgar* Rice Burroughs to be set in modern-day London – are Samuel L Jackson and Oscar-winner Christoph Waltz.
It’s the latest chapter in the meteoric rise of 23-year-old Queenslander Robbie, who rose to fame locally after joining Neighbours in 2008. She is currently the number three most searched star on IMDB after Phillip Seymour Hoffman and Jennifer Lawrence, and ahead of Scarlett Johansson.
Since her critically-acclaimed role as Leonardo DiCaprio’s wife in Martin Scorsese’s Wall Street drama, she has scored a coveted spot on the cover of the annual Vanity Fair Hollywood edition, appearing alongside names such as George Clooney and Julia Roberts.
She also sparked controversy last week amid reports her legs were digitally extended during a scene from The Wolf of Wall Street, where she pushes DiCaprio with a high heel. Robbie herself has previously criticised the demands of Hollywood on women, saying: “There is a stereotype that you need to look a certain way, and when you get into the business, you really feel the pressure.”
Robbie will also appear in the coming wartime drama Suite Francaise, alongside Michelle Williams and Kristin Scott Thomas, and is currently filming post-apocalyptic scifi thriller Z for Zachariah with Chris Pine and Chiwetel Ejiofor in New Zealand.
Last Friday night (February 7), Lawson played an intimate gig at the launch of ibis Styles Liverpooland in an exclusive interview with MTV News UK, they let us know who their dream girl would be to star in one of their music videos.
After landing model Kelly Brook for their last promo for track Juliet, lead-singer Andy Brown revealed that they still have “about a thousand” ladies in mind to follow in her footsteps.
But, it’s former Neighbours star and Wolf of Wall Street leading-lady Margot Robbie who they have their eyes on, with Andy adding: “She’s the one for me… We had Kelly, we are trying to spread our wings now.”
After reminiscing about all the stars to grace the Australian soap’s set, Ryan concluded: “Scratch that we are going to go for the female cast of Neighbours.”
While they aren’t dreaming of their next female video co-star, they are busy writing new music for themselves and for others.
“The Wolf Of Wall Street’s” Margot Robbie stars in the new music video for “Mr. Right” by Triptyq, a classical hip hop trio project made up of singer/songwriter Antoniette Costa, cellist Kevin Olusola and pianist/violinist/composer Tara Kamangar.
Russian models Kristina Romanova and Valentina Zelyaeva – both Ralph Lauren favorites – join Margot Robbie in the video, which shows the three girls dancing and clapping as Triptyq performs and creates the song.
Co-produced by James Poyser of The Roots, “Mr. Right” shot to #2 on the iTunes Classical Charts after gaining 44,000 views in less than a day.
Triptyq has also found a famous fan: Kate Upton tweeted, “My new favorite song!! Mr. Right!!” and added, “Its an amazing song!”
Kristina Romanova, who stars in the music video, agreed: “Download this amazing song Mr Right by Triptyq on iTunes,” she tweeted.

Those perfect pins may be a tall tale.
Hollywood filmmakers are using computer tricks to “digitally extend” female stars’ legs to look long and thin — and “The Wolf of Wall Street” actress Margot Robbie may be the latest victim, critics and special-effects pros said.
In the scene in question, the blond bombshell, who plays the wife of Leonardo DiCaprio’s hedonistic stock-broker character, bares a pair of sexy gams while coyly pushing away her hubby’s head with a high heel.
But the 5-foot-6 actress’ image looks “impossibly long-legged” and was likely lengthened for the scene by a Photoshop-style editing program, movie bloggers claim.
Editors who perform “digital surgeries” on stars in the hit film may have stretched footage to achieve a slimmed-down look, the Sunday Times of London reported. “[It’s] like a funhouse mirror, so everyone looks tall and thin,” one post-production expert told the paper.
A company called Lola Visual Effects studio says “cleaned up” actors’ images in the Martin Scorsese film, which was nominated for five Oscars, including Best Picture, Best Director and Best Actor.
A rep declined to say whether Robbie’s legs had been fudged but revealed film honchos initially planned to tweak the star’s face. Movie makers planned to enhance Robbie’s eyes, but scrapped the idea after seeing her baby blues in real life, the special-effects maker said.
“I do know they wanted to accentuate her blue eyes until they realized she really has amazing eyes,” said the graphics man, who declined to be identified.
Robbie, 23, would have been upset if she had known filmmakers planned to change her image, said a source close to the star.
And the Australian actress herself has remarked on Hollywood’s unrealistic standards of beauty.
“When you look at movies. The lead girl is always gorgeous and thin. There is a stereotype that you need to look a certain way, and when you get into the business, you really feel the pressure,” she has said.
She’s not the only star apparently subjected to the Stretch Legstrong treatment.
At 5-foot-4 in real life, Britney Spears was elongated three inches in a recent TV documentary, the Sunday Times reported.
Actresses often have no clue they’ll be stretched until after the flick hits theaters, sources said.
Australian actress MARGOT ROBBIE has turned down HUGH HEFNER’s offer of a Playboy photoshoot.
The blonde beauty caught Hefner’s attention with her saucy role in The Wolf of Wall Street, and the Playboy mogul made a public plea for her to strip off for his magazine.
However, Robbie has now insisted she will not be posing for Playboy any time soon.
During an interview with New Zealand radio station The Edge, she was asked whether she had accepted Hefner’s offer and Robbie replied, “False… No. Never. I’ve put my family through enough…”
She later joked that she would only consider posing for Playboy if she was much older and her career had taken a downward turn, adding, “Then I’ll give him a call.”
Hollywood actor Margot Robbie has passed on a $1000 prize won from a radio station to the Canterbury community where she is filming her latest movie.
The 23-year-old Australian actor arrived in New Zealand last week to begin filming science fiction tale Z for Zachariah in the small Banks Peninsula settlement of Port Levy.
Robbie – who most recently appeared in Oscar-nominated movie The Wolf of Wall Street – recently replaced American Amanda Seyfried to play the role of 16-year-old farmgirl Ann Burden, who believes she is the only survivor of a nuclear holocaust.
The film, based on a 1974 book of the same name, will also star Star Trek’s Chris Pine and 12 Years a Slave’s Chiwetel Ejiofor.
Z4Z Film Production line producer Murray Francis said he rang The Edge< radio station yesterday to claim a $1000 prize they were offering to anyone who could get Robbie to ring them.
He claimed the cash before handing the phone over to Robbie.
Robbie decided to donate half the money to the Port Levy volunteer fire brigade, and the remaining $500 to the Port Levy marae “who had been so warm and welcoming to the film and its cast and crew”, Francis said.
The Edge will air its interview with Robbie at 5.15pm today.
Radio DJ Jay-Jay Feeney said the interview will feature Robbie talking about “dating Orlando Bloom, Leo diCaprio, being naked in a movie, how she has such a hot body and more”. - © Fairfax NZ News
Just when you were starting to recognize The Wolf of Wall Street‘s Margot Robbie with her clothes on, the Australian actress (and red carpet newbie) has thrown you another curveball — she’s gone brunette, as seen in the WhoSay photo below.
Robbie dons a newly dark do and a trucker hat on the set of her new film Z for Zachariah, in which she stars as a girl in postapocalyptic America with a mysterious visitor. And appropriately, she captioned the photo “First day on set for Z! She ain’t a Duchess no more” — referring to her lavishly attired and super-glam character in Wolf. The actress had already given fans a heads-up that she was sporting a new look a few days earlier, Tweeting “Prep for Z for Zachariah is well and truly underway – I’m now officially a brunette and spent the day milking cows and driving tractors!”
