Margot Robbie says working with Leonardo DiCaprio was “the most satisfying experience”.
The Australian actress has been romantically linked to the A-list hunk after playing his love interest in Martin Scorsese’s The Wolf of Wall Street.
The film is due for release later this year and Leonardo was a source of inspiration as well as support for her on set.
“Working with him was, as an actor, the most satisfying experience I’ve had in my entire career so far,” Margot admitted to the September edition of US Vanity Fair.
Margot moved to America in order to pursue her acting career. The 23-year-old is fast solidifying herself as a Hollywood up-and-comer and also has a role in Richard Curtis’ romantic comedy About Time. Margot joked her family don’t quite believe her success yet.
“I’m still trying to convince [my family] that this is actually a career and not just a hobby, and that it’s what I plan on doing with my life. They’re slowly coming around to it,” she laughed.
“I love New York so much and living in Los Angeles is a whole different vibe and pace. Being back in the city is such a treat for me.”
In December it was reported that Margot’s rumoured flirtation with Leonardo was heating up. The 38-year-old heartthrob was allegedly seen entering Margot’s building in New York City and not leaving until the following morning.
“He stayed overnight,” a source told New York Post.
Rumours Leonardo had fallen for the glamorous blonde first surfaced when they were seen at luxury hotel the Wynn Las Vegas in November.
“There looks to be some strong chemistry between Leo and his leading lady. They spent a lot of time at the party together,” a source said at the time.
