Margot Elise Robbie was born on July 2, 1990, and had a pretty normal upbringing in Dalby, Queensland, a rural town in Australia with a population of around 15,000. Her father, Doug Robbie, was a sugarcane tycoon and farm-owner, while her mother, Sarie Kessler, was an educated physiotherapist. Margot grew up with her siblings Anya, Lachlan, and Cameron, but faced family troubles when her parents divorced when she was only five.

Despite the challenges, she excelled in sports and learned gymnastics. There are even rumors that her mother enrolled her in circus classes to train as a trapeze artist when she was eight years old.

In 2009, at the Black Eyed Peas Wrap Party held at the Palms at Crown in Melbourne, Margot Robbie revealed that she was not interested in playing indoors with toys and preferred to be a “roll-around-in-the-mud kind of gal.” Although her sister and cousins had dolls, she did not recall having any herself. When she did play with dolls, they were not in good condition since they were poorly taken care of. In an interview before the SAG-AFTRA strike on BBC 2, Margot shared a funny anecdote about how she faked her death as a young girl to get back at a new babysitter she did not like. She waited 45 minutes for the nanny to discover her lying next to a kitchen knife covered in ketchup. It was worth it to see the babysitter run out of the house screaming since Margot preferred her former babysitter Talia.
