Margot Robbie Downplays Her Beauty, Says She's Not "Particularly Attractive"

Margot Robbie doesn't always feel like the most beautiful woman in the room! (Say what!?)

"In my big group of girlfriends at home, I am definitely not the best-looking," the 24-year-old beauty says in the August issue of Vanity Fair. "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."

The Australian actress also tells the mag that her successful career doesn’t have much to do with her upbringing, as she comes from a family of farmers, not entertainers.

"We had farming on both sides. My mother's family raised grains and crops. My father's grew sugarcane and mangos," she reveals. "So I knew more about the basics of farming than of acting."

The blonde bombshell may have have acting in her genes, but she certainly has a natural presence onscreen. Given that her home country has produced stars like Nicole Kidman and Russell Crowe, could she be the next big thing?

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," she admits. "We take our work ethic seriously. So maybe that's why we have a good reputation."

Margot clearly has a good head on her shoulders!
