Hard to believe, but Margot Robbie, 27, celebrates 10 years in the acting business this year. The first major role of her career was on the Australian TV show Neighbours back in 2008 before eventually making the move to America, playing the role of Laura Cameron on the short-lived ABC series Pan Am alongside Christina Ricci in 2011.

However, as everyone knows, Robbie’s breakout role happened in 2013 when she played Leonardo DiCaprio’s love interest Naomi Lapaglia in The Wolf of Wall Street. Since then, she’s gone on to become a household name with starring roles in films like Focus, The Legend of Tarzan and Suicide Squad.

Now, with her eagerly anticipated film I, Tonya, in which she plays infamous Olympic figure skater Tonya Harding, set to be released in the United States on December 8th, Robbie is out in full-promotional mode.

Part of this promotion included being the cover star of Vogue Australia, which includes a lengthy profile of the star where she talks about, among other things, her marriage (sigh), her dog (Boo Radley), her (and her husband and friends’) production company LuckyChap Entertainment, feminism and sexual harassment in Hollywood.

As far as how she feels about her new married life, Robbie had this to share…

I ask if being married has changed anything, especially now they are working more closely together, and Robbie looks down at her pear-shaped diamond ring. “That’s the thing, we were best friends and roommates before and now we’re like best friends and roommates still, so nothing’s really changed at all. Other than the fact that I get to wear this on the weekends. I can’t obviously wear it during the week when I’m working – I don’t want to lose it on set.”

Soooo… working with your friends and husband? That’s not a good idea, right?

“A lot of people cautioned us against starting a company with our friends, and I was actually really disappointed with how many people told us that it was a bad idea,” she says. “But I guess we’re one of the exceptions to the rule because we’re still all the best of friends and we love working together. It’s perfect, because work never feels like work to me. I’m always with my best friends, I trust them implicitly, we know each other so well, we know everyone’s strengths and weaknesses and how to spread projects among ourselves so that we can be as productive and efficient as possible and it’s been great so far.”

Well, good luck with that.

So far, though, Robbie says her favorite memory of making a movie came when they wrapped up LuckyChap’s first movie Terminal (which has yet to be released), saying, “The last take wrapped and I remember the crew gave the four of us the clapper board at the end. And when we knew that we’d just made a movie, that was a really amazing feeling. And we did it together, which was the best part. None of this stuff would be fun if you were doing it on your own. I get to do it with my best friends in the world, it’s just awesome.”

Enjoy it while it lasts, I suppose, right?
