Margot Robbie is known for her prominent roles on TVs such as Tonya Harding and Harley Quinn, but little is known about her personal life.
But for years, Maggie has been happily and quietly taken along by her husband, Tom Ackerley.
Read on to learn more about their relationship
Tom Ackerley is a dude from the UK but works in Hollywood.
He is an assistant filmmaker and producer, notable works Macbeth in 2015 and The Brothers Grimsby.
Before making it as a producer-cum-assistant director, he was a crew member for several films, including War Horse, Rush and Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy.
Tom co-founded LuckyChap Entertainment in 2014 with his wife, a production company. To date, the company has owned Dollface, I, Tonya and an upcoming project called Promising Young Woman.
Tom and his production partner Josey McNamara were among Variety’s 10 Producers to Watch list in 2018.
While speaking to Mirror, Margot talked about LuckyChap Entertainment. “We started our production company with our best friends and it continues to be a wonderful group dynamic. We all work well together. I feel very happy.”
How did Margot Robbie and Tom Ackerley meet?
Interestingly, the film industry brought together Margot Robbie and Tom Ackerley.
Speaking to Australia’s The Daily Telegraph, Margot revealed that they met in 2014 while working on Suite Francaise.
The talented actress also said they were trying to make their relationship work as he was based in London while she was filming.
“The most helpful thing I’ve learned from other couples in this industry is that you can’t go more than three weeks without seeing each other,” she told the Australian Daily Telegraph. “Being in a long-distance relationship can be difficult if you don’t see the light at the end of the tunnel. It can mess with your head, so the three-week rule is key.
The couple made their first public appearance in a photo in 2015 while watching a Rangers game.
The couple likes to keep their relationship a secret
Since they met in 2015, Ackerley and Robbie have kept all details about their relationship private.
After their wedding in December 2016, the couple never walked the red carpet together until 2017.
According to reports, the couple tied the knot in Byron Bay, Australia in December. Robbie confirmed the rumors with a teaser on her Instagram.
In the photo she posted, she kissed Ackerley while holding up her wedding ring finger with the new ring.
Although they have maintained the utmost privacy in their relationship, Margot came close to revealing some details about her relationship with her husband to Porter.
In the 2018 interview, she revealed, “I’m a big believer in doing business with your partner,” she told Porter. “Being married is actually the most fun ever, life has somehow become much more fun. I have a responsibility to be someone’s wife, I want to get better.”
Margot Robbie and Tom Ackerley working together
The couple have always said they want their work to speak for itself. While you will find a lot about their personal lives on the internet, you would soon find a lot about their production company.
LuckyChap Production has seen the pair work on several films, which starred Margot. They include Birds of Prey, I Tonya and another one in the works called Barbie.
Barbie is expected to hit the flying waves as seasoned writers such as Noah Baumbach and Greta Gerwig are featured as writers.
In fact, when she was on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, Margot said they decided to postpone their honeymoon to have time to film I, Tonya.
During the interview, the seasoned actress detailed how she had embarrassing encounters with Portia de Rossi, Ellen DeGeneres and Barack Obama.
Margot Robbie had anxiety problems
Margot revealed other exciting things about her husband in an interview with Mirror.
She said she has anxiety issues with new roles (especially Harley Quinn) and that Paul helps her deal with them.
“Even Harley [Quinn] is a character I’ve played before, I was still scared before shooting because I’m always nervous to start a job,” she began.
But her husband encouraged her, which made the main difference as she prepared for her role in the film.
