Margot Robbie’s husband Tom Ackerley opens up about spending 24 hours a day with each other

Margot Robbie’s Hollywood journey has been nothing short of stellar, with her career trajectory steadily climbing since its inception. The actress gained global acclaim, particularly with her role in the 2023 hit film “Barbie.” Known for her prowess on screen, Robbie has also kept her personal life under wraps, especially her marriage to British film producer Tom Ackerley.

In a recent interview with The Sunday Times, Ackerley shed some light on their private and professional dynamic, revealing that he and Margot are practically inseparable. “We share 24 hours a day,” he emphasized, describing their relationship as seamless. When asked about balancing personal and professional spheres, Ackerley humorously quipped that for them, there’s no on-off switch—it’s all one cohesive unit.

Adding a touch of playful rivalry, Ackerley noted their friendly debates, like arguing whether Tim Tams or penguins are better, showcasing their lighthearted approach to married life. Despite being British, Ackerley jokingly expressed his wish for more sporting rivalry between Australia and England.

The couple, who exchanged vows in December 2016, have not only graced numerous red carpets together but also co-founded LuckyChap Entertainment in 2014 alongside Sophia Kerr and Josey McNamara. This production company has been pivotal in Robbie’s career, steering various successful projects.

Expanding beyond the film industry, Robbie and Ackerley recently ventured into the spirits market with their gin brand, Papa Salt. Launched initially in Australia in 2023 and now expanding into the UK, the venture has been a culmination of years of development and planning. Joined by Regan Riskas, Josey McNamara, and Charlie Maas, the team behind Papa Salt has meticulously crafted the brand, highlighting Robbie’s entrepreneurial spirit beyond acting.

Reflecting on her new venture in a recent interview with The Times, Robbie contrasted the predictability of the liquor business with the unpredictability of filmmaking. She humorously remarked that unlike movies, where success is uncertain, running a gin brand allows for clearer projections and planning. “You can lay this out on a spreadsheet,” she joked, “in a way that you can’t lay out a movie idea.”

Robbie’s ability to seamlessly navigate both the glitz of Hollywood and the intricacies of entrepreneurship with Ackerley showcases a dynamic partnership built on shared passion and ambition. As they continue to expand their horizons professionally, Robbie and Ackerley exemplify a blend of love, creativity, and business acumen in their journey together.
