After meeting on the sets of Suite Francaise, Margot again met Tom later that year in London. She had visited London to attend the premiere of her movie ‘The Wolf Street.’ Margot really liked the crew members of Suite Francaise and decided to lived together in London. Tom along with Margot and other friends shifted in a three-bedroom house in South West London. That’s when they became good friends and started liking each other. And a year later they turned their friendship in a romantic relationship.

Margot had already developed a feeling for Tom, but she hesitated to express her love as she thought she would lose the friendship. She, however, decided to give a try and the rest is history. In an exclusive interview with US Vogue, Robbie revealed:

‘I was the ultimate single girl. The idea of relationships made me want to vomit. And then this crept up on me. We were friends for so long. I was always in love with him, but I thought, “OH, he would never love me back. Don’t make it weird, Margot. Don’t be stupid and tell him that you like him.” And then it happened, and I was like, ‘Of Course we’re together. This makes so much sense, the way nothing has ever made sense before.”

At the initial phase of their relationship, Tom and Margot decided to hide their relationship from their friends. However, later on, everyone found out about their relationship and finally, they officially announced to be together.
