What is Margot Robbie’s net worth? How much did she get paid for Barbie?
Robbie appears to have significantly boosted her sizeable fortune with her starring role in the Barbie movie, which came out in July 2023.
Margot Robbie, who stars alongside Ryan Gosling in ‘Barbie’, is believed to have a net worth of around $40 million. That’s the latest estimate - as of June 2023 - provided by the specialist website Celebrity Net Worth.
An Oscar-nominated actor
Most notably, Robbie’s fortune stems from an acting career that began on the Australian TV soap ‘Neighbours’ in 2008, and has since brought two Academy Award nominations. She was up for Best Actress in 2018 for her lead role in the movie ‘I, Tonya’, before her performance in ‘Bombshell’ led her to be nominated for Best Supporting Actress in 2020.
Among the other major credits on the 33-year-old’s resumé are appearances in films such as ‘the Wolf of Wall Street,’ ‘Once Upon a Time in Hollywood,’ ‘Babylon,’ ‘the Suicide Squad’ and ‘Birds of Prey.’
Producer and face of major brands
Robbie is also the joint owner of a production company, LuckyChap Entertainment, which is behind ‘Barbie,’ the first ever live-action movie about the iconic Mattel fashion doll. An enterprise that Robbie co-founded in 2014, LuckyChap has produced other motion pictures that she has starred in, such as ‘I, Tonya’ and ‘Birds of Prey.’
According to a report in Variety in 2022, Robbie’s salary for ‘Barbie,’ which is to be released in the United States on 21 July, is $12.5 million. It’s a pay packet that is thought to have made her 2022′s highest-paid female actor.
The Australian’s income also comes from her numerous endorsements by well-known brands. She has worked as an ambassador for the fashion and fragrance firms Calvin Klein and Chanel, as well as the automobile manufacturer Nissan.
