Margot Robbie may not be a household name just yet in America, but she is set to star alongside Leonardo DiCaprio in “The Wolf of Wall Street.” Robbie is also rumored to be dating DiCaprio, with reports saying the two are a couple and DiCaprio spent the night at her apartment last week.
Margot Robbie and Leonardo DiCaprio met on the set of Martin Scorsese's latest film, “The Wolf of Wall Street,” based on the memoir of the same name by Jordan Belfort. DiCaprio stars as Belfort and Robbie plays Naomi LaPaglia, his main love interest. Matthew McConaughey, Jonah Hill, Jon Favreau, Kyle Chandler and Spike Jonze also star in the film.
After filming wraps for the day, Robbie and DiCaprio reportedly have been spotted together around New York. Previous reports had Robbie getting close to DiCaprio at his 38th birthday party at the Darby in November. Just recently, sources are telling New York Post that DiCaprio stayed the night at Robbie's Union Square apartment last Thursday, leaving Friday morning.
DiCaprio was previously dating Victoria's Secret model Erin Heatherton for a year before the couple broke up in October, notes the Post.
While DiCaprio is a Hollywood superstar, “The Wolf of Wall Street” will be Robbie's biggest role to date. Robbie was born on July 2, 1990, in Queensland, Australia. She got her first big break on the long-running Australian soap opera, “Neighbours.” The show premiered in 1985 and just wrapped up its 28th season in November. The show has featured several destined-to-be-big names, including Guy Pearce, Natalie Imbruglia, Liam Hemsworth and Kylie Minogue. Russell Crowe even made a brief appearance on “Neighbours,” for four episodes in 1987, according to IMDB. Robbie played Donna Freedman on “Neighbours” for 311 episodes from 2008 until 2011.
In 2011, Robbie broke through in America, landing a starring role in the television series, “Pan Am,” which also starred Christina Ricci. Robbie played Laura Cameron on the show. In 2012, Robbie made the transition to movies. While “The Wolf of Wall Street” was still filming, Robbie wrapped up “About Time” which stars Rachel McAdams and is directed by Richard Curtis, writer and director of “Love Actually” as well as writer for “Notting Hill.”
