This Robbie got robbed! While she plays a con artist in her latest movie, Margot Robbie told Nylon that she's been on the receiving end of theft — more than once!

"I have been robbed a bunch of times," the Focus actress, 24, told the mag. "And now that I know how to pickpocket, I understand why I have been pickpocketed so many times."

According to Robbie, she is the "perfect mark," and it's not because of her statuesque beauty or fame.

"I am unobservant," the Wolf of Wall Street star confessed. "I walk around and I am looking up at the sky and my bag is open, so I have been robbed a couple of times."

Thankfully, she learned from the best while shooting Focus, which Robbie described as an "incredible" experience. "I had the time of my life. I didn’t want it to end," she noted to Nylon.

"You get so close to everyone you are working with, but this one was particularly hard to let go of. People would hang out, the shoot would be over and you would see people still hanging around to see what everyone is doing afterwards."

Her costar Will Smith, meanwhile, gave Us Weekly and other reporters at the Hollywood premiere of Focus this past week his tips for avoiding pickpockets.

"You just don't have anything in your pocket, you know," Jada Pinkett Smith's husband told Us. "I grew up in Philly, so it was a prerequisite that you know how to put a little bit of money in your sock. Put some in your pocket, put some of it on the inside. You never put everything in one place where you can get hit."
