Margot Robbie Might Play One of Hugh Hefner’s Wives in Upcoming Biopic
We’re praying to the gods of the Holmby Hills, for Margot Robbie, the deeply talented and radiantly beautiful Australian actress, is in talks to star in the upcoming Hugh Hefner biopic.
Please God, let this happen.
It’s unclear whether it’d be his first wife Mildred Williams (1949 to 1959), “Playmate of the Year” Kimberley Conrad (1989 to 2010) or “Playmate of the Month” Crystal Harris (2012), who was still married to him at the time of his death and 60 years his junior.
Robbie’s casting would reunite her with her Suicide Squad co-star Jared Leto, who is reportedly locked down to play Hef. Some serious prosthetics will be required to make Leto (45), look significantly older than Robbie (27).
Hugh would be delighted at her casting as he had asked the actress to appear in Playboy. Alas, she declined the offer, claiming she had already “put her family through enough.”
A source assured Mirror, “Margot turned the offer down before, but this is different. She’s considering it.”
It certainly wouldn’t be out of line for Robbie. She’s made her name taking on daring and potentially controversial roles—as bombshell Naomi Lapaglia in The Wolf of Wall Street and as disgraced figure skater Tonya Harding in the upcoming biopic I, Tonya.
