Over the past six years, Margot Robbie has become one of the most coveted actresses in Hollywood. During that time, she’s starred in over a dozen movies, two of them from filmmakers Martin Scorsese and Quentin Tarantino (The Wolf of Wall Street and Once Upon a Time in Hollywood), and another two that earned her Academy Award and Golden Globe nominations (Bombshell and I, Tonya).

Now they both could be getting a boost for the next awards season with each of them taking roles in the next movie from American Hustle director David O. Russell. Read More »
