Margot Robbie wanted to pay back her mom for supporting her acting dreams and did so with a generous gift. She added that anyone in her position would do the same. The 33-year-old actress who rose to fame in Hollywood with 2013's "Wolf of Wall Street," starring alongside Leonardo DiCaprio, paid back her mom Sarie Kessler when she found success as an actress. "Everything I owed my mom, I had it written down. She'd take money out of the, like, house mortgage [to] lend me money. So I always knew, I was like, 'I gotta pay that back'," the actress recalled on CBS Sunday Morning. "And then one day, when I made enough money, I just paid that whole mortgage off completely."

The Australian actress continued, "I was like, 'Mom, don't even worry about that mortgage anymore. It doesn't even exist anymore. Honestly," she continued, "Anyone in my position, you'd do that for your mom. Of course, you would." The two-time Oscar nominee added that she is "so grateful" and "lucky" to be where she is in her career. “I know I’m hardworking and blah, blah, blah, but I’m also the luckiest, luckiest, luckiest person in the world,” the "The Suicide Squad" star told the outlet. “Every time that I did something I was like, ‘Now, it’s the top. It will never get better than this.’ And then somehow it’s just kept getting better and better," she added. 



 

 

In 2019, the mother-daughter duo appeared together in Vogue Australia. At the time, Kessler recalled the moment her daughter told her she wanted to be an actress. "I really admired the way you set about deciding how your future was going to unfold. I remember the first time you told me you were going to be an actor in grade 12," she said. "Do you remember doing that movie? You loved it so much and you came home and said: ‘Mum, you’re not going to like this, but I’ve decided I’m going to be an actor,' " continued Kessler. "And Margot, my jaw hit the floor because you were at a really good school. You come from a family with a medical background and a family with a business background, and you told me you were going to be an actor. I was stunned."

Her mom was concerned that Robbie might have a tough time if she ventured into the world of acting. She also mentioned that "being in a big family too — with two brothers and a sister and yourself — we had to figure things out and work through the difficulties of having tight budgets" while Robbie pursued her acting career. "I was very concerned you were intending to take a pathway that, to me, didn’t have a really extensive future," Robbie's mother said. "And now you could say: ‘Mum, you needed more faith in what I can achieve.’ I’m just absolutely so happy for you that you’re in a situation where you love what you do and you have the independence to do what you do because you guys started up your own company [LuckyChap Entertainment]." Sarie Kessler couldn't be prouder of the person Margot Robbie turned out to be!
