Margot Robbie scored a breakout role opposite Leonardo DiCaprio in “Wolf of Wall Street,” and she cemented her spot as Hollywood’s latest ‘It Girl’ in her role opposite Will Smith in the con movie “Focus.”
The Australian actress is featured in the new UK edition of Harper’s Bazaar, which describes her as a “perfect specimen of young womanhood.”
In a photo spread, she exudes charm, sexuality and a wholesome freshness that seems to be endemic in women from Down Under. That stardom came suddenly is no surprise.
Every now and then an actress comes along who illuminates the big-screen simply by her presence. Robbie had that effect in “Wolf of Wall Street.”
Martin Scorsese cast her as the trophy wife of DiCaprio’s Wall Street swindler Jordan Belfort and she was mesmerizing in the role.
It was impossible to take your eyes off her, she was so captivating, especially in tantalizing nude scenes that had DiCaprio’s character literally crawling on the floor.
In the dark romantic comedy “Focus,” she plays inexperienced grifter, Jess Barrett, who meets Smith’s character seasoned con-man Nicky Spurgeon in a nightclub. He takes her under his wing shows her the ropes and fall in love, of course.
The movie has received mixed reviews, but critics who liked the film invariably mentioned Robbie.
“The two stars are dazzling distractions. Robbie is a wow and then some,” writes Peter Travers in Rolling Stone.
“The Aussie actress shows a comic flair backed up with beauty and steel. Even when ‘Focus’ fumbles, Robbie deals a winning hand,” he adds.
