She might be Hollywood royalty, but, as Laura Antonia Jordan finds out, Margaret Qualley is happiest at home, organising her spice drawer
If I were being lazy I could, when writing about Margaret Qualley, employ one of many celebrity profile clichés. I could inform you about the weather and how she is defying it. I might throw in that she is not wearing any make-up. And I could make a point of telling you that the Golden Globe-nominee is So! Normal! Really! But you know the problem with clichés, right? Doh.
And so, regrettably for my journalistic integrity but great for a lunch date, when I meet her at the Marlton in Greenwich Village it is biblically bucketing out when Qualley swoops in all smiles and sparkle, like a human dose of vitamin D. Not (it seems) in make-up, she is wearing the kind of chaotic get up (Laura Ashley dress from eBay, dad’s letterman jacket, fiancé’s cap peppered with brooches and, okay, fine, a Chanel bag) only the beautiful or cool can get away with. First impressions? Very, very nice and, yep, very, very normal.
Qualley likes to chat. Within minutes she has put her mind to who she can set me up with (do it Margaret, I’m serious) and is reaching around for an explanation as to what makes the menu’s Amish chicken, well, Amish. ‘One of the best things about my job is getting to meet so many awesome, awesome people. Literally just talking and listening is the most interesting thing in the world.’
Margaret attended the 2023 Met Gala at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City on Monday evening (May 1). This years gala theme was “Karl Lagerfeld: A Line of Beauty.”

Ethan Coen’s Margaret Qualley & Geraldine Viswanathan ‘Drive-Away Dolls’ To Park At Cinemas This Fall
DEADLINE – Ethan Coen’s Focus Features and Working Title comedy caper, Drive-Away Dolls, will open on Sept. 22. It won’t be a surprise to see this Margaret Qualley and Geraldine Viswanathan movie among the lineups of the fall film festival trifecta.
Written by Coen and Tricia Cooke, Drive-Away Dolls follows Jamie, an uninhibited free spirit bemoaning yet another breakup with a girlfriend, and her demure friend Marian who desperately needs to loosen up. In search of a fresh start, the two embark on an impromptu road trip to Tallahassee, but things quickly go awry when they cross paths with a group of inept criminals along the way. Coen also directs. Producers are Coen, Cooke, Robert Graf, Tim Bevan and Eric Fellner.
Beanie Feldstein, Pedro Pascal, Colman Domingo, Bill Camp and Matt Damon also star.
While Focus has domestic, Universal Pictures International will be handling abroad.
