It's no secret Margot Robbie has legions of male admirers: but yes, sorry to be the bearer of bad news, The Wolf of Wall Street actress is married. The blonde bombshell has been in a relationship with assistant director Tom Ackerley since 2014, a year after the pair first met on the set of her film Suite Francaise, and the pair tied the knot at a private ceremony in Australia's Gold Coast in December 2017.

The couple live in Los Angeles, and have a production company, Lucky Chap Productions, together. The good news? It at least gives hope to your average Joe dreaming of a celebrity girlfriend… Read on to find out who is Tom Ackerley, AKA the luckiest man in the world.

How old is Tom Ackerley?

The handsome Brit was born on 1st January 1990, meaning he's probably celebrated his birthday with a hangover for the best part of the last decade...

Is Tom Ackerley an actor?

Like his wife, Mr. Ackerley works in the film industry, but behind the scenes as an assistant director and producer rather than in front of the camera. His impressive CV includes Macbeth, Pride and The Two Faces of January. More recently, he's gained production credits on two of Margot's projects: the ice-skating biopic I, Tonya, in which his wife plays disgraced figure-skater Tonya Harding, and Terminal, a thriller.

Where is Tom Ackerley from?

Local boy Tom is a British lad through and through. He was brought up in Guildford, Surrey and went to school at nearby Godalming College.

Where do Margot and Tom live now?

The couple used to reside in a 5-bedroom shared house in Clapham (Robbie's Tarzan co-star Alexander Skarsgård described it as 'kind of a frat house vibe') and they were frequently spotted on Clapham Common as well as partying at infamous nightclub Infernos. They took their relationship to the next level, however, by moving out and into their own place in Shepherd's Bush and they now live in a $2.7 million dollar property in Los Angeles.

How did Tom Ackerley and Margot Robbie meet?

The couple met on the set of 2013’s Suite Francaise, when Ackerley was the assistant director and Robbie was playing the supporting role of Celine. Filmed before Robbie’s meteoric rise to fame with The Wolf of Wall Street, she was still very much an up-and-coming star. If you can believe it, it was actually her who pursued him, with Robbie telling US Vogue: ‘I was the ultimate single gal. The idea of relationships made me want to vomit. And then this crept up on me. We were friends for so long. I was always in love with him, but I thought, “Oh, he would never love me back. Don't make it weird, Margot. Don't be stupid and tell him that you like him.” And then it happened, and I was like, “Of course we're together. This makes so much sense, the way nothing has ever made sense before.”’

How tall is Tom Ackerley?

We're not sure exactly what Tom Ackerley's height is, but we're guessing about 6 foot based on how tall he looks next to the 5'6" Margot.

Are they married?

Yes! In December 2017, it was reported that Tom and Margot had tied the knot in a secret ceremony in Australia. Then Margot confirmed the news, with this Instagram snap:

Are children on the cards?

Robbie has been outspoken about her desire for children, telling Australia's Sunday Style: 'I want tons of children. Well, maybe not too many. I grew up in a family of four kids, so that sounds like a good number.'

Does he have Instagram?

The couple are notoriously private when it comes to their love life, but you can get a sneak peek by stalking Ackerley’s Instagram account, @alpha_meows. Although he doesn’t often post pictures of them together, there are a few, including one of the pair on a night out with friends, with Robbie sitting on his shoulders.
