Despite being in the field which necessarily puts one in the limelight, Robin has been quite elusive about her personal life. During the Sydney Theatre Company production of ”A Streetcar Named Desire, “ it was rumored that Robin and co-star Joel Edgerton were dating, after being spotted holding hands at the show’s final performance, leading many to think that they were romantically involved. After being asked about her on-stage chemistry with the actor, she said: ‘Its good! On the second day of rehersals we were, you know, kissing and fighting. You find the violence one day and the passion the next, and then the tenderness.
The sex is really important with these characters. It’s really primal.“ Many tabloids linked her with the famous Australian actor, but the relationship was never confirmed, and their bond remained confined to the boundaries of their roles.
Regarding her current status, many sources on the internet suggest that Robin is currently single, but a careful look at her Instagram account revealed something else.
