When Tom Met Robbie
The Margot Robbie and Tom Ackerley love story started in 2013, when they met on the sets of the World War II movie; Suite Française.
However, the 27-year-old Suicide Squad actress and Ackerley were friends long before that. Robbie spoke with Vogue about how Ackerley changed her relationship status from “single” to “in a relationship.”
“I was the ultimate single gal. The idea of relationships made me want to vomit. And then this crept up on me. We were friends for so long.” The Australian actress continued, “And then it happened, and I was like, Of course we’re together. This makes so much sense, the way nothing has ever made sense before.”
Since then, Robbie and Ackerley have been caught leaving airports together, going to sporting events, and of course, surfing in Australia, Robbie’s home country.
The two met when Robbie was living in London.

They started the company in 2014. But Robbie admits she finds it difficult to juggle her personal and professional lives together.
“And you miss out on a lot of things, like you rarely go on holidays, you miss everyone’s weddings, everyone’s birthdays. I haven’t been home once this year, I haven’t seen my best friends, my nephew.” The actress said about the sacrifices she has had to make.
The pair started the production company with two of their childhood friends, Ackerley’s friend Josey McNamara (also an assistant director) and Robbie’s best friend, Sophia Kerr.
Secret Wedding Bells!

The festivities began around 4.00 p.m in the afternoon. The couple exchanged their vows under a teepee style setting.
