Margot Robbie has been named one of Time's 100 Most Influential People for 2017.
The Australian actress was honoured by The Wolf Of Wall Street director Martin Scorcese who said she is "like no one else".
"You're asked this question a lot about actors—'What's she like?'—and I've never been able to give an answer I'm happy with," he wrote of the 26-year-old star.
"With Margot, you can recall some classic precedents: the comedic genius of Carole Lombard, for her all-bets-off feistiness; Joan Crawford, for her grounded, hardscrabble toughness; Ida Lupino, for her emotional daring," Scorcese continued.
"Margot has all this in addition to a unique audacity that surprises and challenges and just burns like a brand into every character she plays. She clinched her part in The Wolf of Wall Street during our first meeting—by hauling off and giving Leonardo DiCaprio a thunderclap of a slap on the face, an improvisation that stunned us all.
"This is not a complete answer to the perennial question, but it's a start. Margot is stunning in all she is and all she does, and she will astonish us forever."
Robbie joins the Most Influential People list world leaders, pioneers, icons and Hollywood stars including Ryan Gosling, Emma Stone and Ed Sheeran.
