A quick glance at the caption of this article is sure to leave you fantasizing over the ever beautiful Hollywood couple, Margot Robbie and her husband Tom Ackerley. Margot and Tom are one of the few popular celeb couples with a very awe-inspiring love story. You’ll find out why we think so as you scroll through.
Margot Robbie is a well known Australian actress and movie producer who made her acting debut in 2007 playing Tristen Waters in Aash Aaron’s I.C.U. She moved to Melbourne as a teenager to pursue an acting career after studying drama. Robbie, on the other hand, is a recipient of several awards which include Empire Awards for Best Female Newcomer, Critics’ Choice Award for Best Female in an Action Movie, Peoples’ Choice Award for Favourite Action Movie Actress and many other accolades.
Coming back to the first assertions we made, Margot Elise Robbie has always been a simple and delightful person despite going through challenges in the industry like her counterparts. In spite of all this, she did not become too busy to give love a try or make friends.
How Margot Robbie And Tom Ackerley Started Their Romantic Journey
2013 was quite a remarkable year for the talented actress. First, she got her major breakthrough in The Wolf of Wall Street, and then she met the love of her life. Margot was still basking in the glories of The Wolf of Wall Street when she got even more popular and relevant in the industry with several other lead roles.
Her role in The Wolf of Wall Street alongside Jonah Hill and Leonardo DiCaprio earned her the Empire Award for Best Newcomer and an MTV Movie Award nomination for Best Breakthrough Performance. It was during this time that she met Tom Ackelerly. It was on the set of the 2014 romantic World War II drama Suite Française, that she first met the British assistant director.
The two started out as acquaintances and soon became really good friends. Getting to know each other was not that difficult as the cast and crew of the film really got along. It even got to the extent that those of them who based in London later formed a stronger bond and formed a clique; that included Tom and Robbie who wasn’t even based in London.
Margot and Tom Have One of the Most Unusual Love Stories
We cannot tell the exact period the pair felt the spark or started off but things got more serious between them when they familiarized with the London based cast and crew of Suite Française. Being in the midst of friends one could hardly tell they were an item.
The couple soon realized that they could afford to keep their relationship a secret since no one noticed – after all, it was always a bunch of friends hanging out together, but it was only a matter of time before the other members of the group found out about their romance.
They Tried To Keep It A Secret
Although Margot was not based in London, she was a significant member of the clique. In January 2014, Robbie flew into the UK to attend the premiere of The Wolf of Wall Street, and Margot as well as the Suite Française crew decided to stay together for some time.
They opted to rent a house where they would all stay for some time. The group of friends lived together in the house for more than a year, and Robbie and Tom got even closer during this time. As earlier mentioned, they had successfully kept it a secret from their friends until it was obvious that what they had was more than just a platonic relationship.
It seemed awkward for a while but as time went on the group was cool with it. All thanks to their friends Margot and her beau successfully shielded their relationship from the prying eyes of the media. The Wolf of Wall Street star got people even more unsuspecting or rather confused with her seeming habit of bringing family members as dates to awards.
In 2018, she surprised everyone when she brought her mom along as her date for the Oscars. Again at the 92nd Academy Awards in 2020, she brought along her cousin Julia. People who did not know about the actress’s personal life were still in doubt about her marriage to Tom Ackerley.
Now Married, But Still Keeping A Low Profile
Yes, you read right, Tom and Robbie got married in a private wedding in Byron Bay in December 2016. Fifty guests were in attendance and were not allowed to take pictures of the couple. After the wedding ceremony, Margot took to Instagram to flaunt her diamond ring and rose gold wedding band. The couple lived in London for a while before moving over to Los Angeles, where they currently reside.
The couple seems to love the sanity and tranquility they enjoy for keeping their personal life private and for this reason, have maintained a low profile image even after marriage. Away from the cameras, they both enjoy a blissful relationship as they have confessed and it seems the low profile strategy works perfectly for them.
Margot and her husband are co-founders of the production company, LuckyChap Entertainment, alongside their friends Sophie Kerr and Josey McNamara.
Meet Tom Ackerley
What the majority of fans know about Tom is that he is Robbie’s husband, but while it seems he feeds off his wife’s fame, Tom has a lot going for him too. He is an assistant director and producer by profession and has shown his expertise in a lot of works. Both Tom and Margot are known names in the entertainment industry; the major difference in their profession is that Ackerley’s works are mainly behind the scenes.
Born in Surrey, England on January 1, 1990, he grew up in Guildford where he also attended Goldaming college. After studying film in college, he went on to practice directing and producing and has been relevant in the business since then. Some of the movies he has worked on include Brothers Grimsby (2016), Macbeth (2015), and I, Tonya (2017) which also starred his wife Margot Robbie as the main character.
