Australia is famous not only for kangaroos and boomerangs, but also for the fact that it often “supplies” talented actors, actresses and directors to Hollywood. And they are known, loved and recognized on the street ;)

Today I propose to take a closer and “targeted” look at this topic, and turn our attention exclusively to Australian actresses (pretty Australian actresses!) who have performed well in Hollywood. Want to know more?

Margot Robbie

Since we have Margot Robbie on the cover today, it’s only logical that we’ll start our story with her ;). Margot Eliza Robbie was born in 1990 in the Australian city of Gold Coast. She first appeared on screen in 2007, playing in the TV series Neighbors. The actress's first fee was $5,000.

The breakthrough in Margot’s career was the famous 2013 film “The Wolf of Wall Street,” in which Leonardo DiCaprio became a co-star. Well, the actress’s popularity came from her role as Harley Quinn in the film adaptation of the DC comic Suicide Squad.

Kylie Ann Minogue is not only a world-famous singer (musician, composer, dancer), but also a champion of sold music albums, thanks to which she was included in the Guinness Book of Records.

Cate Blanchett

Kate's unconventional beauty and exceptional talent put her among the most sought-after actresses in the new Hollywood. She is also Armani's permanent muse and the main fashion trendsetter of any red carpet - a status that few cinema stars have managed to achieve.

Kate was born in Melbourne and graduated from the Australian National Institute of Dramatic Art, after which she began working in Sydney theatre. The incredibly successful performance of the role of Ophelia in the production of Hamlet helped her break into the big cinema. Kate's ascent to Hollywood Olympus was marked by filming in the film "Road to Heaven." At the same time, the actress began dating screenwriter and director Andrew Upton, with whom they married just a few weeks after they first met. The couple has been married for more than twenty years and has four children - a real rarity by the standards of modern Hollywood.

Naomi Watts

Naomi Ellen Watts is the daughter of Pink Floyd's costume designer and tour manager, and, unlike other famous Australians, she spent her childhood in England. At the age of 14, after the death of her father, she and her mother settled in Australia, where the actress’s grandmother was from. It was then that Naomi began to take her first steps in cinema. She easily got a role in the Australian film “Only for Love,” and at one of the advertising castings she met Nicole Kidman. The girls felt affection for each other from the first minutes of communication and left for home in the same taxi - thus began a strong friendship between two Australian women who were destined to conquer Hollywood. Subsequently, the actresses even starred in one film – “Flirting” by John Duigan.
