Margot Robbie’s known for her larger-than-life big-screen characters (hello, Harley Quinn and Tonya Harding), but little is thought about her offscreen. But for years, she’s been quietly taken by her husband of greater than 4 years, Tom Ackerley. Below, a briefing on their relationship.

He’s also within the film industry.
Although Ackerley hails from the U.K., his skilled interests lie firmly inside Hollywood. He’s an assistant director and producer who has worked on movies including The Brothers Grimsby and 2015’s Macbeth. Before that, he was a crew member for movies including Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, Rush, and War Horse. In 2014, he founded the production company LuckyChap Entertainment with Robbie, producing projects including I, Tonya, Hulu’s Dollface, and the upcoming Promising Young Woman. In 2018, he and producing partner Josey McNamara were named in Variety’s 10 Producers to Watch list.
In an interview with Mirror, Robbie spoke about her and Ackerley’s company. “We began our production company [LuckyCap Entertainment] with our greatest friends, and it continues to be an exquisite group dynamic. All of us really work well together. I feel very lucky.”

Margot and Tom met on a movie set.
Coincidentally, the film industry is what initially brought Ackerley and Robbie together. In an interview with Australia’s The Each day Telegraph, she confirmed that they met while working on the 2014 film Suite Française. She also discussed making the early days of their relationship work when she was away filming and he was based in London. “Probably the most helpful thing I’ve learned from other couples on this industry is that you just don’t go greater than three weeks without seeing one another,” she told the outlet. “Being in a long-distance relationship may be really hard while you don’t see the sunshine at the tip of the tunnel. It could actually mess together with your head, so the three-week rule is essential.” The couple were first photographed together during a Recent York Rangers game in February 2015.

They rarely speak about their relationship.
Since meeting, Robbie and Ackerley mostly keep their relationship private. In reality, they didn’t walk a red carpet together until fall 2017, nearly a yr after their December 2016 wedding. People reported that the couple tied the knot on December 18 in Australia’s Byron Bay. Margot confirmed reports by posting a photograph of the 2 kissing on Instagram, while she held up her newly-adorned ring finger.
In 2018, she gave PORTER a rare quote about her relationship. “I’m a terrific advocate of doing business together with your partner,” she told the outlet. “Being married is definitely essentially the most fun ever, life got far more fun one way or the other. I actually have a responsibility being someone’s wife, I would like to be higher.”

They do work together regularly.
On the subject of their relationship, Robbie and Ackerley prefer to let the work speak for itself. Through LuckyChap, the couple worked on several movies that Robbie starred in, including I, Tonya, Birds of Prey, and the upcoming live-action Barbie, which has real-life couple Greta Gerwig and Noah Baumbach attached as writers.
In an interview for The Ellen DeGeneres Show, Robbie said she and Ackerley even delayed their honeymoon to shoot I, Tonya. Through the sit-down, she also detailed an embarrassing run-in with DeGeneres, Portia de Rossi, and Barack Obama.

From the looks of his IG, he likes adventure.
When Ackerley is not on a movie set alongside Robbie, his Instagram feed is full of photos of him traveling, browsing, and skiing. (Plus, just a few cute dog photos.) In September 2018, he posted photos after competing in a triathlon.
Margot credits Tom for helping her cope along with her anxiety when preparing for movies.
In an August 2021 interview with Mirror, Robbie revealed that she gets overwhelmed with anxiety when she takes on a task—but her husband helps her address it.
Robbie discussed being scared as she reprised her role as Harley Quinn within the Suicide Squad sequel. “Though Harley [Quinn] is a personality I actually have played before, I still got scared before shooting because I’m all the time nervous to start out any job,” she began. But Ackerley encouraged her and made an actual difference as she prepared to shoot the film: “I actually have this whole crisis of religion and think, ‘Oh my gosh, I’m not even good at acting, and I can’t do that.’ Each time I do a movie, I turn to my husband, and I’m like, ‘I don’t think I can do that.’ He says something like, ‘You do that each time. You’ll be tremendous.’”
She also joked within the interview about her love of British things, including Ackerley, who’s from Surrey: “I appear to love a number of British things,” she told the British publication. “I really like Harry Potter, I really like my husband and I really like Love Island. It’s great.”
Tom visited her on the set of Barbie for her birthday.
Margot Robbie turned 32-years-old on the set of Barbie on July 2, 2022, and her husband Tom Ackerley visited her in between filming scenes. The movie is being directed by Greta Gerwig, and Robbie is playing the titular character. Ryan Gosling is starring across from her as the enduring Ken.
During her break, Robbie was seen smiling and chatting with Ackerley. He was wearing an off-the-cuff white t-shirt, black and white patterned pants and a pair of black shades. Robbie was wearing a range from her Barbie wardrobe, a hot pink Western-style top with a white cowboy hat.
The couple were seen on a date in NYC in September 2022.
On Saturday, September 18, Robbie was seen stepping out for dinner with Ackerley in Soho, headed out for a restaurant date together. The actress was wearing a peasant-style dress in a dark red shade patterned in floral print and a high draw string waist. She paired the late summer vintage look with platform suede boots and a few easy silver jewelry. She carried a small leather purse and wore a black mask and left her long blonde hair down. Robbie walked hand-in-hand with Ackerley, who was wearing a white t-shirt tucked right into a pair of beige pants.
They walked the Governors Awards Party red carpet together in November 2022.
Robbie and Ackerley attended the Paramount Pictures’ Post Governors Awards Party in Los Angeles on Saturday, November 19. The actress is within the midst of promoting her upcoming film Babylon, which focuses on the Roaring 20s and Hollywoods transition away from silent movies.
Robbie was wearing a beautiful emerald green satin column cutout gown by Bottega Veneta on the event hosted by President & CEO, Brian Robbins, on the Sunset Tower Hotel. The look exposed her midriff with a gold tie holding the ruched sides of the bodice and skirt together. Ackerley wore a classic black suit with a black bow tie.
