Margot Robbie drank tequila before shooting a nude scene with Leonardo DiCaprio
Before shooting one particular scene for “The Wolf of Wall Street,” Margot Robbie needed a shot of liquid courage.
On November 22nd, during the British Academy of Film and Television Arts’ “Life in Pictures” panel, Robbie discussed her experience filming the 2013 Martin Scorsese drama, including a nude sex scene with co-star Leonardo DiCaprio. According to The Daily Mirror, Robbie admitted, “I’m not going to lie, I had a couple of shots of tequila before that scene because I was nervous…very, very nervous,”
The Australian actor was concerned that she wouldn’t get much attention because of the film’s all-star cast, which also starred Jonah Hill and Matthew McConaughey. Robbie: “Honestly, I know it sounds silly now, knowing how big the movie became, at the time I thought, ‘No one is going to notice me in this film,'” Robbie said. “It kind of doesn’t matter what I do in this film because everyone is going to be focused on Leo and everything.”
Over the subsequent years, Margot Robbie has established herself as one of the few actresses who can equally provide awards-season darlings and superhero blockbuster hits. She has played Harley Quinn in several DC films, and she has received two Oscar nominations: best actress in 2018 for her performance in I, Tonya, and best supporting actress in 2020 for her performance in Bombshell. The 32-year-old will next be seen in the highly anticipated Barbie movie directed by Greta Gerwig and co-starring Ryan Gosling; she admits to being a little anxious about taking on the part.
There’s a lot of baggage attached to it! In an interview with British Vogue published in June 2021, Robbie revealed. A lot of memories were brought back. However, this opens up a wealth of novel approaches to the problem.
