Australian actress Margot Robbie is reportedly being eyed to join the upcoming Tina Fey comedy “Taliban Shuffle”.
The film, an adaptation of journalist Kim Barker‘s memoirs, follows her arrival in Kabul,stories about militants, being a woman in wartime Middle East and life as a war correspondent. Barker will be portrayed by Fey, who is also producing alongside Lorne Michaels. With Glenn Ficarra and John Requa on board to direct, this casting is another step in the direction of production getting underway.
Robbie garnered critical acclaim and attention for her role in Martin Scorsese‘s The Wolf of Wall Street. She has several films in the works, including David Yates‘ anticipated take on “Tarzan” alongside Alexander Skarsgard.
McDonald’s is not usually on the menu for in-demand Hollywood actresses.
But Margot Robbie proved that she is in a league of her own as she was spotted wandering out of the fast food eatery in London chowing down on a cheeseburger and ice cream on Monday.
The down-to-earth Australian star, who turned 24 last week, was a natural beauty with zero makeup as she picked up the snack with a male friend.
Margot was casual but elegant on her food dash, with her full length animal print garment featuring a sizeable slit up the middle.
She covered it up with a snug grey sweater and teamed the entire ensemble with cute slip-on shoes featuring bones printed on the front, adding yet another primal aspect to the equation.
She wore her blonde tresses pulled back into a messy bun and forewent any need for makeup, thus proving her natural beauty.
The Wolf Of Wall Street actress carried all her essentials in a brown leather handbag for the outing and clutched her take away food in a large paper bag from the restaurant.
She was not alone for the delicious adventure, however, as a male pal joined her.
The duo were spotted knocking back burgers inside McDonald’s before exiting the place, immersed in conversation.
Margot treated herself to a little desert in the form of ice cream in a cup, clutching this as she exited the place.
It was a well deserved break, as the star has been in the midst of filming her latest flick, Tarzan, directed by David Yates.
She stars as Jane Porter opposite Alexander Skarsgard’s Tarzan, with other cast members including Samuel L. Jackson and Christopher Waltz.
Margot recently gushed to Digital Spy about how much her co-star’s muscles impress her.
‘He’s really big,’ Margot said of Alexander. ‘I look like a hobbit next to him.’
‘We were doing camera tests the other day and my fingertips were literally at his kneecaps. I think every girl on set is swooning.’
Margot Robbie’s mother says she’s disappointed news that her actress daughter paid off her entire mortgage have been made public.
The Wolf of Wall Street star gave mum Sarie Kessler a memorable 60th birthday gift by paying off the Gold Coast property.
Her brother Lockie posted a picture of his mother and sister toasting to the good news to his Instagram account on Sunday.
But he might be in trouble for it.
“I was really disappointed it ended up on social media,” Kessler told the Gold Coast Bulletin.
“It was a personal present.”
Kessler said she tried to convince her 23-year-old daughter to skip a trip home for the occasion, given her busy acting schedule.
“It was definitely the best day ever,” Kessler said.
Robbie has booked a number of films since appearing in Martin Scorsese’s Oscar-nominated film, including a big-screen take on Tarzan.
She’ll play Jane Porter to True Blood hunk Alexander Skarsgard’s Tarzan
She spent Wednesday mixing with royalty at a charity bash thrown by The Duke of Cambridge.
But by Thursday Margot Robbie was back running with the celebrity pack at London’s latest A-lister haunt the Chiltern Firehouse.
The 23-year-old made polka dots look sexy wearing a blue and white tea dress that fitted like a glove with a plunging neckline which was flared at the waist.
How is this for a cast? Ralph Fiennes, Tilda Swinton, Margot Robbie and Matthias Schoenaerts. Not much is known about the untitled film, described as a “sexy thriller,” only that it will be the next project of Italian director Luca Guadagnino. Filming begins this summer in Italy.
Robbie and Schoenaerts have already worked together, on the upcoming Weinstein Company release “Suite Francaise,” also starring Michelle Williams. She broke out in “The Wolf of Wall Street” opposite Leonardo Dicaprio, while he did it via “Rust and Bone” opposite Marion Cotillard.
Robbie has since wrapped apocalyptic thriller “Z for Zachariah” and grifter rom com “Focus.” She’ll next play Jane opposite Alexander Skarsgard’s “Tarzan” in a new reboot of the classic actioner.
Schoenaerts starred opposite Kate Winslet in “A Little Chaos” and Carey Mulligan in “Far from the Madding Crowd,” both of which are awaiting release, and he’s attached to thrillers “Galvaston” and “Candy Store.”
Following in the footsteps of other famous Australian siblings like the Hemsworth brothers and the Cornish sisters, Margot Robbie’s younger and very handsome brother Cameron is set to dazzle on the big screen.
The 19-year-old is busy honing his acting skills and is dreaming big.
Cameron began filming the short-film Gifted on the Gold Coast last Thursday, taking his first steps into the industry that has welcomed his talented sister with open arms.
Last week the gorgeous teen shared a shot with social media followers of himself in character, only revealing the lower half of his face under a black hoodie, captioned: ”Menacing’ look into #purryburryproductions “Gifted”.’

Margot Robbie is the latest in a string of celebrities to join the Ballet Bodies craze, sharing an image of herself flaunting her new gravity defying skills on Instagram on Tuesday.
Following in the footsteps of Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Taylor Swift and fellow Australian actress Phoebe Tomkin, the Wolf of Wall Street star used her newly created social media account to document her workout at the Los Angeles fitness studio.
Legs outstretched in vertical splits, the stunning 23-year-old posted a photo of herself in the midst of what looks to be a very strenuous pose.
Supported by a Pilates Cadillac machine, she flings her head back and points her toes, mimicking the long, lean lines of a professional dancer.
Margot joined Instagram at the weekend and has proved an instant hit, already attracting in excess of 17,000 followers.
The young star first found fame as a platinum blonde Australian beauty but has since dyed her hair dark brown for her newly completed film project, Z for Zachariah, which was filmed in New Zealand
First appearing in Aussie drama Neighbours, she hit the big time starring alongside Leonardo DiCaprio in The Wolf Of Wall Street, which was released at the end of 2013 and nominated for five Academy Awards.
Margot Robbie finally bowed to peer pressure from friends and fans and joined Instagram today.
The 23-year-old posted her first photo on Saturday, with the announcement: ‘Finally joined Instagram @margotrobbie #peerpressurepaysoff.’
The former blonde bombshell, who is now rocking dark brunette locks, wrote ‘I GOT INSTAGRAM’ in marker and held them in front of her face.
The star was wearing minimal make up and a simple white singlet top, with lots of delicate gold jewellery in her very first shot.
She posed for her first selfie in a high-rise Los Angeles building, with the city skyline behind her.
Margot arrived back in Hollywood earlier this week after she wrapped up the filming of her new movie Z for Zachariah in New Zealand.
The Wolf Of Wall Street star joined Carmella designer Katheryn Rice and stylist Cristina Ehrlich at the Carmella Dinner at Petit Ermitage Hotel in Hollywood on Thursday night.
She slipped right into the fashion crowd at the West Hollywood venue in a pastel yellow off-the-shoulder jumpsuit.
Margot found fame as a platinum blonde Australian beauty but since dying her hair dark brown for her latest film project, she’s embraced a more sultry look.
First appearing in Aussie drama Neighbours, she really hit the big time starring alongside Leonardo DiCaprio in The Wolf Of Wall Street, which was released at the end of 2013 and nominated for five Academy Awards.
Margot Robbie’s romance with a local New Zealand lad appears to be over before it really even got started.
The Wolf Of Wall Street star is said to have left the country, and Aitken behind, after wrapping her movie Z For Zachariah this month, according to the Sydney Morning Herald.
The stunning Australian star and the son of a Banks Peninsula farmer were said to be enjoying a romance while working on the movie together earlier this year.
However, the the very brief dalliance is said to have finished.
Stars of the film, including Robbie, Chiwetel Ejiofor and Chris Pine attended a wrap party for the movie, last weekend.
The bash somewhat ended in disaster when Pine was pulled over and charged with driving under the influence of alcohol.
New Zealand news website Stuff claimed that Robbie had been ‘swept off her feet’ by Aitken during filming.
The handsome brunette – who was said to be working in the art department of the film – works in the film industry locally.
He studied at the New Zealand Film and Television School, and his Facebook page says he is the art director for multimedia production company Sakowski Studios.
The pair were said to have formed a bond on set of the new movie – which stars Margot as a sixteen-year-old girl named Ann Burden who survives a nuclear war in a small American town.
Last month, a friend of Aitken’s, who did not wish to be named, told The Press that the pair had been seeing each other for a month.
They 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.
Interestingly, Robbie recently told E! that she didn’t want to date another famous actor.
She said: ‘No, I don’t really wanna date an actor, so this probably isn’t the night I’m gonna find someone,’.
