To say Margot Robbie is one of the hottest stars in Hollywood is a gross understatement. She stormed on the scene in The Wolf of Wall Street and she really hasn’t looked back. The Australian beauty has been turning the heads of most filmmakers. She is set to play Harley Quinn in the upcoming Suicide Squad film. She will be the next Jane in the upcoming live-action Tarzan movie. However, Robbie’s personal life is just as hot with rumors as her on-screen life.
Since early July, Margot Robbie has been linked to no-less than three big names in Hollywood. The rumors run the gamut of stars in various relationships. One is married. One is having problems, and if either of the previous rumors are true, the last one would seem downright bizarre.
In early July, Woman’s Day, of all places, sprang the news that recently divorced Ben Affleck was linked to Robbie.
“Ben has had the hots for Margot ever since he saw her in The Wolf of Wall Street. As far as Ben is concerned, Margot is the sexiest woman in Hollywood right now.”
Affleck is said to make an appearance as Batman in the upcoming Suicide Squad film. This only fed the Woman’s Day rumor. The Daily Mail later reported that a person closely linked with Suicide Squad claimed the two “had barely spent any time” together.
Just a month later, Margot Robbie was linked with her co-star of both Focus and Suicide Squad, Will Smith. According to some in Hollywood, Will Smith and his wife of almost 20 years Jada would be filing for divorce. A romance with Robbie is what fueled the speculation that the two were splitting.
Will Smith came out on his personal Facebook page, and he unequivocally denied that he and Jada were divorcing.
“Under normal circumstances, I don’t usually respond to foolishness. (Because it’s contagious) But, so many people have extended me their ‘deepest condolences’ that I figured – ‘What the hell… I can be foolish, too!”
“So, in the interest of redundant, repetitious, over & over-again-ness… Jada and I are…NOT GETTING A DIVORCE!!!!!!!!!!!!!”
“I promise you all – if I ever decide to divorce my Queen – I SWEAR I’ll tell you myself! #Dumb People Should Have to Wear Scarlet D’s.”
Some naysayers have pointed out that Will Smith failed to deny any involvement with Robbie.
If Margot Robbie being in the middle of two megastar relationships weren’t enough, PopDust dropped the bomb that all of the rumors were untrue. They claimed that Margot Robbie had married director Tom Ackerley last year. The two had been seen sporting wedding rings and getting close last June. One insider reported the particulars of the wedding.
“It was all very Margot, low key and fun. And, it says a lot about Tom and Margot that they managed to keep this totally under the radar. They are a great couple and really crazy about each other, the wedding was really beautiful and a true celebration of their love for each other.”
At the moment, it is hard to know what to believe. Affleck seems nothing more than a rumor. The only thing we know about Will Smith is he is “not getting a DIVORCE!” Ackerley hasn’t hasn’t said anything either way. Margot Robbie seems content to let the rumors run without confirming or denying any of them.
What do you think of the Margot Robbie, Ben Affleck, Will Smith, Tom Ackerley rumors? Is this just “any publicity is good publicity?” Let us know in the comments.
