Not only has her on-screen career skyrocketed, acting alongside Hollywood legends including Leonardo DiCaprio and Will Smith, but she has also started producing films.

“It was an amazing experience, ” I, Tonya director Craig Gillespie and fellow Australian said of working with Robbie.

“To start with, she was a producer on this. We sat down and she hired me which I was obviously thrilled with. We had a long conversation before that happened and we really saw eye-to-eye on the kind of movie we wanted to make, the tone of the film, the humour in the film, and I think in some odd we had that similar Australian sensibility.”
