4. He changed Robbie's ideas on relationships

Before Ackerley, Robbie had a very different view on relationships, and during an interview with Vogue magazine she gushed about how he changed her life.

"[Before we met] I was the ultimate single gal," she said. "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.'"
