Margot Robbie Plays Down Beauty in Vanity Fair August 2014

Posted Thursday July 10, 2014 1:50 PM GMT

She's classically beautiful and oozes confidence on the big screen, but Margot Robbie is very modest about her amazingly good looks.

During an interview inside the August 2014 issue of Vanity Fair, the "Wolf of Wall Street" babe opens up about her thoughts on her appearance and her surprising love life.

Check out highlights from Margot's interview below!

On her beauty:
"In my big group of girlfriends at home, I am definitely not the best-looking. I did not grow up feeling like I was particularly attractive. You should have seen me at 14, with braces and glasses, gangly and doing ballet! If I looked good in Wolf of Wall Street I cannot take full credit; it was because of hair extensions and makeup."

On Australians finding success in Hollywood:
"People ask me all the time what it is about Australia that produces so many big stars. Honestly, I believe it is a combination of things. Our education standards are quite high, but our industry is very limited. Yet we're very aware of the industry—everyone goes to the theater, sees TV shows. The logical step is to make a move to America—America is getting the best of the best of us... You don't leave Australia unless you are passionate. Any Australian actor who comes to America is really committed. There are no dabblers—it's all or nothing. If you've worked in Australia you can't get away with bad behavior, like showing up late. We take our work ethic seriously. So maybe that's why we have a good reputation."

On her love life:
"Everyone wants to link me up, make it seem like I have a thrilling love life. They tried to say [Leonardo DiCaprio} and I were a couple, too. Ideally, I'd want people to know nothing about my personal life. The truth is my love life is very dull. I'm in love with my job."
