In an interview with the BBC, Robbie - who starred in films such as I, Tonya and The Wolf of Wall Street - was asked to tip a series of Premier League matches and gave a patriotic response when it came to Brighton's clash against Swansea.
"I’ll say Brighton, because of the Aussie love," Robbie said.
No doubt she was referring to the only Aussie in the squad, Ryan, who has been the Seagulls' number one choice in goals this season.
The former Central Coast Mariners goalkeeper seemed delighted with Robbie's endorsement.
It's not the first time Robbie has made headlines in the football world this week, after revealing she supports Championship club Fulham, based in west London.
Robbie and co-star Allison Janney - who is most famous for starring in The West Wing - gave a series of predictions for this week's Premier League matches including a surprise 4-4 draw between West Bromwich Albion and Huddersfield Town.
In the match between Liverpool and West Ham United - which you can watch LIVE on SBS - Janney and Robbie backed the Hammers.
"Well I go for the underdog always so I’m going to say West Ham. 1-0," Robbie said.
