It’s official. We’re obsessed with Margot Robbie. We’re obsessed with her in 'The Wolf of Wall Street', we’re obsessed with her body, we’re obsessed with her lovely blonde hair, we’re obsessed with the fact that she got to kiss Leonardo DiCaprio, like, LOADS of times. Yep, she’s one of our new favourite actresses. Here’s 9 things you need to know about the 'TWOWS' star...

1. Her Grandparents Have Never Seen 'The Wolf of Wall Street'

We kind of agree with this one. Margot’s Mum Sarrie recently revealed that whilst she was ok with her daughter getting totally naked for  her part of Nadine in Wolf – her Grandparents might not have been. She said, ‘for the grandparents, no, we decided it probably wouldn't be the best thing for them to see.’ Tee hee

2. She Got Her Big Break On Neighbours

Yep, just like Kylie Minogue and um, Holly Valance before her Margot actually started out on our favourite Aussie soap, 'Neighbours' (soz, 'Home and Away'). Margot played Donna Freeman, but had her character written off in 2011. Is it bad to say we didn’t remember her? This might jog your memory...

3. When She First Met Leonardo DiCaprio She Wasn’t Thinking About Him

Margot recently revealed to Grazia that when she first met Leonardo DiCaprio she was too busy thinking about her audition to revel in how FIT and FAMOUS he is. ‘It was at an audition,’ she said of their first meeting, ‘I was more nervous about my audition so I didn’t have time to worry about, ‘Oh I’m about to meet Leo and Marty [Martin Scorsese].’

4. She Got Drunk Before Filming Her Sex Scenes With Leo

Um, we’re not sure quite why she felt the need to do this given that most women who give their right arm (or leg) to get close to Leo – but Margot revealed that when she did her first sex scene with the actor, it wasn’t without a little dutch courage. ‘I did three shots of tequila at like nine in the morning, right before doing it,’ she said.

5. She Beat Kristen Stewart and Jessica Biel For The Part of Nadine Belfort

Er soz guys, but they just like Margot better. No hard feelings, eh?

6. She’s No Stranger To Controversy

Late last year rumours that Margot was enjoying an affair with her 'Focus' co-star Will Smith went into overdrive after photographs of them larking around in a photobooth were published by an American Magazine. She denied they were having a relationship saying, ‘There's absolutely no truth to the ridiculous rumor. It's disappointing that goofing around on set could be taken so out of context.’

7. Margot Only Has 58,000 Followers On Twitter

Hang on, there is something slightly wrong about this number  given that it is less than the majority of reality television stars – go and follow her – NOW @margotrobbie.

8. She loves beer and fries

So basically if you want a body like Margots - you definitely do - then all you have to do is eat fries and drink beer, then snack on a few carrots. She told GQ magazine, 'I don't have a very good diet. I love beer, fries, burgers, but if I have to get in a bikini then I eat carrot sticks for three days. I'm one extreme or the other.'

9. Her nickname is Maggot

About the only gross thing about her. Margot said, 'Maggot [is my nickname]. It started when I was five, Grade One and I detested it. By the time I was eight I realised it wasn't going anywhere so I embraced it but when I moved to Melbourne people started calling me it and I hadn't even told them it was my nickname.
