Shane Warne takes his infatuation with Margot Robbie to the next level

Can the King of Spin bowl over the Aussie star for his latest project?

Shane Warne may be batting above his average, but the cricket star seems truly smitten with actress Margot Robbie!
"Margot cops a lot of stick from her Aussie and British mates who have noticed Shane comments on or likes almost everything she posts," says a source.

"He obviously has a huge crush on her."
On April 17, Shane gushed, "Keep rocking it Margot!" on one of her posts, and wrote "Aussie" along with the clapping emoji on another on April 26.
And while the source tells Woman's Day that Margot's hubby Tom Ackerley is "super chill" about Shane's fawning, he might not be too pleased to hear rumours the 51-year-old former cricketer's thinking about approaching Margot, 30, to collaborate on a "gritty" film project about his life.

"Shane's always thought Margot looks like a younger version of his ex-wife [Simone Callahan]," says the insider.
"He would love Margot to do something on his life. It's a genius idea and would be a huge film in Australia, England and India, so she'd be mad not to consider it."
Shane dated many beautiful women over the years, so it's not surprising he has his eye's set on the Hollywood star.

Shane announced a separation from his wife of 10 years, Simone Callahan – who he shares three children with – after he was seen kissing Elizabeth Hurley in 2010.
The couple got engaged the following year but confirmed their relationship had come to an end in 2013, although the King of Spin maintains they've always remained close.
"We still love each other in many ways – I still care for her deeply," he has said.

However, in the years since their breakup, the former couple has been caught flirting with each other on Instagram.
Shane, 51, likes just about every photo of the 55-year-old actress on Instagram, and eyebrows were raised when Liz seemed to respond to his cheeky hints.
"I recognise those railings," she commented along with a series of kiss emojis on a photo of Shane presumably standing outside his Melbourne home.
This certainly isn't the first time Liz has reached out to Shane either, with the Bedazzled actress constantly posting love heart emojis on pictures of Shane.
