Margot Robbie Dethrones Sofia Vergara as Highest-Paid Actress
by FARUK IMAMOVIC | VIEW 1429
Margot Robbie, the 32-year-old actress and producer, has claimed the title of the highest-paid actress in the world, dethroning Sofia Vergara, who held the position for many years. The confirmation comes as a result of Robbie's role in the upcoming movie "Barbie", for which she received a staggering fee of 12.5 million dollars, equal to that of her co-star, Ryan Gosling.
"Barbie" Marks Robbie's Highest Paid Role Yet
The trailer for "Barbie" has already generated excitement among fans of the iconic doll, and Robbie's performance in the movie is expected to be a highlight of her career. The Australian actress has already made a name for herself with numerous critically acclaimed roles, and she was named the most beautiful woman in the world by Maxim magazine's Australian edition last year.
A Strong Work Ethic and Down-to-Earth Attitude
Robbie has always had a strong work ethic, having held multiple jobs at once before landing a role on the Australian show "Neighbours". Despite her success and wealth, she remains grounded, sharing a house in London with five roommates and using public transportation.
She co-founded Lucky Chap Entertainment with friends, including her husband Tom Ackerley, and the company has produced well-received films such as "Promising Young Woman", "Birds of Prey", "I, Tonya", and "Barbie".
Net Worth and Future Goals
Robbie's net worth is estimated at 26 million dollars, a combination of film salaries, endorsement deals with major brands like Chanel, and real estate investments.
However, she has no intention of becoming solely known as "Margot Robbie's company". She told Vogue in 2018, “It’s everyone’s company and so we’d kind of like to steer away from that”. The goal for Lucky Chap Entertainment is to establish a diverse and prestigious production company with critical acclaim.
