Margot Robbie and her husband Tom Ackerley have a notoriously chill relationship, with limited social media presence, few red carpet appearances, and fewer public comments about each other. Basically, they’re giving the complete opposite of Kourtney Kardashian and Travis Barker. But if you dig a little deeper (read: go on a nerdy deep dive into their relationship), you’ll realize everyone’s been sleeping on one of the cutest duos in the industry. On that note, here’s a full timeline of Margot and Tom’s relationship—right in time for the Oscars!


Margot—right on the brink of being on the A++ list—gets cast in Suite Française, which Tom happens to be working on as the third assistant to the director. Margot immediately becomes tight with the crew—to the point where they all decide to start living together. As she later put it to The Guardian, “We were like, ‘Wouldn’t it be funny if we all lived together?’ Someone said, ‘But you don’t live in London,’ and I said, ‘I don’t live anywhere. I’ll move.’ Three days later, we signed a lease in Clapham.”

Around this time, her friendship with Tom pivoted to ~romance~.


Margot and Tom cofound LuckyChap Entertainment alongside their friends Josey McNamara and Sophia Kerr. And not only is the company responsible for Margot’s 2017 film I, Tonya, but they also produced Barbie. Meaning, yes, Margot *and* Tom worked on the movie together.

Meanwhile in November 2014, Margot and Tom are spotted together for the first time looking so adorable, I genuinely can’t handle it:

Hello to this photo only:

May 2016

After several years of saying pretty much nothing about her relationship status, Margot opens up to Vogue, saying, “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. I was always in love with him, but I thought, Oh, he would never love me back. Don’t make it weird, Margot. Don’t be stupid and tell him that you like him. 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.’”

Again, not to be dramatic, but:

July 2016

Margot tells the Daily Telegraph (via Bustle) that she and Tom never spend more than a few weeks apart—even when she's busy filming overseas.

“The most helpful thing I’ve learned from other couples in this industry is that you don’t go more than three weeks without seeing each other,” she says. “Being in a long-distance relationship can be really hard when you don’t see the light at the end of the tunnel. It can mess with your head, so the three-week rule is key.”

August 2016

Margot and Tom are spotted in Japan:

December 2016

Margot and Tom get married! Which is kinda an unexpected life event for Margot, who later tells Porter, ‘I always thought, ‘Urrgghhhh, being married sounds really boring.’ I thought I might bite the bullet in my late 30s and see how it goes.”

The couple ends up filming I, Tonya right after their wedding instead of going on honeymoon, but they do eventually manage to fit in a trip to Tahiti.

And during an interview with E! News at the Critics Choice Awards on January 14, Margot gushes about Tom when she was asked about the benefits of having a "normie" husband.

"I am so lucky," she says. "He likes being behind the camera. He's not fazed by any of this stuff."

"He's just the best, it's so fun," Margot continues. "I love the word 'normie.' All my friends, everyone's like, 'That's cool, what you do, but it's more fun just to hang out and talk about other stuff.' And you're like, 'I know.'"

February 2024

Tom reveals he and Margot spend "24 hours a day" together during an interview with the Sunday Times (via People), saying that when it comes to separating their business and personal relationships, “It’s seamless. We don’t have a toggle on, toggle off. It’s all become one thing.”
