She told Vogue: “My family has no connection to the entertainment industry, so when I started acting, everyone said to me, ‘It’s fun, but when are you really going to find a real job?’.

Robbie, who had his first role on Australian soap opera, Neighbours, landed his breakthrough role in Wolf of Wall Street alongside Hollywood sensation Leonardo DiCaprio.

“I always feel like the kid from acting school hoping to land a role. I always feel like I’m lucky and lucky to have this job,” he said. she declared.
“Part of my job now is to give back and help create opportunities for the next generation – especially with female directors, because it’s so unbalanced.”
