Margot Robbie paid off her mum's mortgage after Hollywood success

Margot Robbie paid off her mum's mortgage after Hollywood success

The Barbie star paid her mother back once she made it big in Hollywood

This Barbie is a good daughter!

Margot Robbie is currently on top of the world as the Barbie movie is currently the go-to film in cinemas right now.

But despite all of her success, the 33-year-old Aussie star has never lost touch with her roots. And who represents our roots better than our own parents?

In fact, she gave her mum Sarie Kessler one hell of a 60th birthday present back in 2014 as a token of appreciation.

Robbie paid off the mortgage on Kessler's $490,000 home in Southport on the Gold Coast of Australia.

At the time, Kessler said: "It was an amazing thing [that Margot did] but I don’t want to say anything more about it.

"I’m just so proud — we all are. It was definitely the best birthday ever."

Robbie made the generous payment using money she'd made from her break-out role in The Wolf of Wall Street.

And the star recently reflected on the moment in an interview with CBS Sunday Morning, saying: "She’d take money out of the house mortgage, lend me money, so I always knew I got to pay that back.

"And then one day, when I made enough money, I just paid that whole mortgage off completely. I was like, 'Mum, don’t even worry about that mortgage anymore. It doesn’t even exist anymore.'

"Everything I owed my mum, I had it written down.

"Honestly, anyone in my position... you’d do that for your mum."

Robbie has previously spoken of her mum being a source of support for her during the earlier years of fame.

Robbie paid back her mum by paying off her mortgage in 2014.

During one of her 'lowest' moments after shooting to notoriety, Robbie confided in her mum and got a straight answer.

The Babylon star recalled to Vanity Fair in 2022: "Something was happening in those early stages and it was all pretty awful, and I remember saying to my mum, 'I don’t think I want to do this'.

"And she just looked at me, completely straight-faced, and was like, 'Darling, I think it’s too late not to.' That’s when I realised the only way was forward."

Since its release on July 21, Barbie has grossed over $300 million in the global box office, according to Deadline, and has received rave reviews from critics.

The Evening Standard branded it 'the comedy of the year', writing: "One of the funnest and funniest movies ever made, it's also breezily outrageous.

"By refusing to play safe, star and producer Margot Robbie, and writer-director Greta Gerwig, have done themselves proud."
