Margot Robbie has been a must-watch actress on the big screen for well over a decade, and with a lot of talent comes a lot of...well, Hollywood ~attention~. But despite becoming a household name throughout the years, Margot's done a superb job at keeping her romantic relationships under wraps.

In case you didn't already know, Margot has a husband, and the two have actually been together for six years. I know...I was shocked too. The Suicide Squad actress, 32, has been with her partner Tom Ackerley, 32, since 2016, and the couple has stayed strong together.

But now that fans are catching on, they're curious to know more about the British film producer. Although Margot doesn't have an Instagram to share adorable couple pics, Tom does, and yes, Margot makes the occasional appearance.

Social media aside, there's a lot more to know about Tom. Read on to learn more about Tom and his relationship with Margot.

Tom's been in the entertainment industry for years.

Before meeting Margot, Tom was working as an assistant on projects like American Odyssey and Macbeth before becoming a producer on bigger films such as Grimsby with Rebel Wilson and Promising Young Woman.

What's even cuter is that Tom has worked behind the scenes on several of Margot's movies including Terminal, I, Tonya, and most recently, Barbie, which is set to come out next year.

Tom met Margot on the job.

Not long after the release of The Wolf Of Wall Street, Margot signed on to star in Suite Française. At the time, Tom was working on the film as third assistant to the director. And while it's not super common to live with the people you're working with, Margot revealed that the cast and crew bonded so well, that it seemed like the best decision.

“We were like: ‘Wouldn’t it be funny if we all lived together?’ Someone said: ‘But you don’t live in London,’ and I said: ‘I don’t live anywhere. I’ll move.’ Three days later we signed a lease in Clapham," she told The Guardian. "I didn’t even see the place–I had to fly out to the Golden Globes [where Wolf Of Wall Street had been twice nominated] three hours after we made the decision.” And the rest is history.

They co-founded a production company.

Considering how many times Margot and Tom have worked together, it was only a matter of time before they began collaborating. In 2014, they founded LuckyChap Entertainment with Josey McNamara (a fellow producer) and Sophia Kerr (an assistant).

The company was responsible for I, Tonya, Birds of Prey, Promising Young Woman, and Barbie.

He was in Harry Potter.

Yes, you read that correctly, Harry Potter fans. Last month, fans of the movie were shocked after Margot revealed on The Graham Norton Show that Tom had a small role in Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban.

She joked that she would've married her husband sooner had she known about his days as an extra. "He was an extra when he was a little kid – he was one of the Slytherin extras when Draco pushes some kids out of the way to see Buckbeak in the third book. He pushes my husband out of the way," said Margot.

They've kept their future plans private.

As of now, Margot and Tom do not have children. However, Margot has been open about her frustrations with being asked when she plans to have kids following her marriage.

“I got married and the first question in almost every interview is ‘Babies? When are you having one?’ I’m so angry that there’s this social contract. You’re married, now have a baby. Don’t presume. I’ll do what I’m going to do,” she told Radio Times, per Vogue.

In short: don't ask Margot Robbie when she plans on having kids.
