MARGOT ROBBIE TALKS INVESTMENT STRATEGY: Margot Robbie and her husband Tom Ackerley founded a production company with Josey McNamara in 2014, well before they were big stars. Called LuckyChap Entertainment, they have released multiple hits since, including I, Tonya. She explained their strategy to The Hollywood Reporter: “We never started a company to be a starring vehicle for me or to be a platform for me to chase my dreams. It was really that we wanted to expand what female stories and female storytellers could do in this industry, and I don't need to be onscreen for that to happen. But it's a wonderful position to be in since my platform can also open some of those doors. And especially at the beginning, there were a lot of first- and second-time filmmakers that we wanted to work with, and you can't get something greenlit without a bankable name attached and I'm so lucky to fall into that bracket of bankable names. But I'm not right for every role.” Next up is Promising Young Woman, a comedic revenge thriller starring Carey Mulligan.
