Born Sarah Margaret Qualley on October 24, 1994, to actress Andie MacDowell, she initially honed her skills as a ballerina at a young age, later following in her mother's footsteps.

Who is Margaret Qualley's boyfriend, Jack Antonoff?
The Leftovers fame and Antonoff have finally made their relationship official since sparking the rumors in mid-2021. The actress and her singer boyfriend Jack nonchalantly packed on PDAs at Sunday's Critic's Choice Awards. Antonoff, 37, donned a full gray suit over a white shirt, and Margaret stunned the night in a white floral dress. With Jack's arms wrapped around her waist, the pair shared an intimate kiss while looking smitten in love.
Antonoff, who is a songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and a record producer, famously dated actress Lena Dunham before Qualley. The couple called it quits in 2018 after five years of romance and a cohabiting relationship. Antonoff is a five-time Grammy-winning singer and also boasts a nomination for the Golden Globe Award. A native of Bergenfield, New Jersey, Jack's music career began with the indie rock group Steel of Train; he also fronted a band named Fun but found the awaited fame with his solo project called Bleachers in 2014.
Antonoff made his mark with acclaimed tracks like I Wanna Get Better, Shadow, Rollercoaster, Don't Take the Money, and more, compiled in the Bleacher's two albums, Strange Desire and Gone Now. Apart from his successful solo career, Antonoff's career elevated further with some famous collaborations, including his Grammy scoring contribution to Taylor Swift's fifth studio album 1989 and Lana Del Rey's Norman Fucking Rockwell.
Antonoff and Qualley fueled dating rumors when the two were pictured enjoying a romantic date in New York City in August 2021. The alleged pair didn't give in to the rumors and instead kept things low-key. Before Qualley, the Bleachers fame was linked with Lorde, a supposed affair Antonoff quickly debunked. "There's not any romantic situation. They're just friends — they are just friends," a source close to Jack said.
Inside Margaret Qualley's dating history!
Margaret made her onscreen debut in 2013 Palo Alto, and the model-turned-actress has since dated some well-known names and, well, sparked speculations with a few. Qualley was still an anonymous name, given her scarce credits when she started dating Nat Wolff, known for The Fault in Our Stars and Paper Towns. The pair's romantic relationship was never confirmed.
Qualley's name was next linked with SNL fame Pete Davidson, who is currently dating Kim Kardashian. Their romance was widely talked about but still never confirmed. Although, Qualley's famous mother did hint at the budding love brewing between the two. Qualley and Davidson's relationship reportedly continued from August 2019 to October 2019. The actress's next flame, Shia LaBeouf, was and continues to be, without a doubt, the best-known stint of the actress's personal life.
Qualley and Labeouf started dating in 2020 and manifested the heat on Margaret's sister, singer Rainy Qualley's MV, Love Me Like You Hate Me, where the two showed some sizzling love. Qualley was exposed to incessant hate and trolling when LaBeouf's ex-girlfriend, singer FKA twigs, filed a lawsuit against Shia, accusing the actor of assault and sexual battery. While the allegation against LaBeouf was still whirling fresh, Qualley called it quit with him in January 2021.
