It’s hard to imagine saying “no” to Martin Scorsese. The Oscar-winning director of “The Departed,” “Hugo,” “GoodFellas” and more remains one of the most prolific filmmakers in the business, as fresh and energized now at 71 years old as he’s ever been.
But Australian actress Margot Robbie nearly turned down the chance to work with Scorsese on “The Wolf of Wall Street,” based on true-stories of fraud and crime on Wall Street in the 1980s. Robbie plays Naomi Lapaglia in the film, a role that requires no small amount of nudity — a fact that nearly drove Robbie away from the project.
Found this interview on youtube, thought id share it of course, for those who haven’t seen it.
Margot Robbie wowed at the premiere of “The Wolf Of Wall Street” in New York City last night (Dec. 17).
The Australian blonde beauty walked the red carpet at the Ziegfeld Theatre in a white Armani Prive gown, Brian Atwood shoes and creepy, yet captivating, pearl spider earrings by Jacob & Co jewels. The 23-year-old, who got her big break on the ABC series “Pan Am” in 2011, was joined at the premiere by Leonardo DiCaprio, Jonah Hill, Matthew McConaughey and Camila Alves.
“When I got the material, I didn’t like the character,” Robbie told Elle of playing the leading lady in Martin Scorsese’s latest film. “But by the time we got to shooting, I loved her. She’s a bada-s who’s making lemonade — with no f–king lemons.
Hey guys, I will try and get photos up when I can, work is pretty hectic at the moment as you can imagine its christmas time and all! – M
You would think that filming a sex scene with Leonardo DiCaprio would be incredibly hot but it was anything but, according to his “Wolf of Wall Street” co-star Margot Robbie.
The actress, 23, plays Noami Lapaglia in the upcoming Martin Scorsese film. She gets down and dirty with the 39-year-old actor’s alter-ego, Jordan Belfort, but the moment was definitely not romantic.
Robbie insists: “The whole thing ended up being quite comical.”
In the scene, a barking dog stands at the end of the bed and nips at DiCaprio’s feet, and it took some ingenuity to film it.
Robbie told the New York Post: “We entice this dog to jump in the bed and bite at Leo’s feet…so we had dog trainers at the end of the bed [with] dog treats…we’re putting chicken liver on Leo’s toes. We’re in a small room, it’s hot, it’s sweaty, it smells like dog food.”
Meanwhile, DiCaprio recently dismissed rumors that he used a body double for the naked scenes.
He explained earlier this week: “It’s all me, pal. Look, when you do a character like this, you have to go all out. You can’t pull any punches. You have to swing for the fences. Hopefully people enjoy it.”
It’s all skin, and it’s all Leo. Is there a better reason to watch the film?

Genetically blessed Neighbours veteran and Australia’s newest celebrity we will know doubt protectively claim with zeal Margot Robbie is, according to The Hollywood Reporter, testing for the role of a young Sarah Connor in the upcoming Terminator reboot—the franchise whose most recognisable catch phrase proves to be searingly telling of its longevity, propensity for coming back, etc.
Robbie, who pulled the classic Australian actor’s move and scored roles in American productions (Pan Am, the upcoming Wolf of Wall Street alongside Leonardo Di Caprio) in order to get famous famous, not just Neighbours famous, is reportedly set to test for the role in the anticipated fifth instalment of The Terminator, vying for the spot alongside mother of dragons Emilia Clarke and Brie Larson (United States of Tara).
Naturally, The Terminator wouldn’t be nearly as ridiculous charming without Arnie (cc: Terminator 4); it goes without saying that Arnold Schwarzenegger will be back for the reboot; John Connor’s role is still open, though Tom Hardy is considered a likely, and obvious, contender.
The refreshed franchise has a July 1, 2015 release date and has been signed as a trilogy, meaning whomever lands the role of Sarah Connor will be in for some serious seasons of Hollywood summer blockbuster madness. Trump Khalessi and bring it home, Margot, you could soon be getting all amongst this.
Sorry I have been slack as of late, I have been quite busy in the real world! But there has been a second trailer for ‘The Wolf od Wall Street’, which is going to make Margot a household name in the US! About time! Plus Magazine scans from “Vanity Fair” & Australias “Vogue” edition, stay tuned.x
MARGOT Robbie says it was “inevitable” that she would be romantically linked to Leonardo DiCaprio after starring as his wife in Martin Scorsese’s The Wolf of Wall Street.
Gossip mags were quick to report the pair were an item when the former Neighbours actress was the centre of attention at DiCaprio’s birthday bash last year.
But in an interview with Vogue Australia, Robbie says she and Leo were nothing more than co-stars.
“No,” she told the mag as she laughed about the reports.
“We’re friends, of course, but those rumours were inevitable – there’s no truth to them. Everyone on the set became good friends, we’d all hang out on weekends.”
Robbie said as soon as the news broke, her friends back home were ecstatic at the thought of her hooking up with the 38-year-old bachelor.
“I just woke up to 45 missed calls on my phone and all my girlfriends saying: ‘I can’t believe you didn’t tell me!’ I’d call them back and say: ‘Are you kidding me? Do you not think you would be the first people I would tell if this was happening?’ I also had to call my grandparents and assure them that there was absolutely no truth to the rumours, and that took a little more convincing.”
She says working with DiCaprio “exceeded her expectations”.
“There are a handful of actors who are known in the industry as being extremely lovely down-to-earth people despite their huge profiles, and Leo’s one of them.
“He was so professional and wonderful to work with. I’m so happy that I can honestly say that, because he really is. We had a great working relationship, we could improvise endlessly and I could go as far as I could possibly go with a scene and know that he was going to take it a step further, there was no limit, there were no boundaries whatsoever. I think we got some really great material, because we were just so comfortable.”
The Wolf of Wall Street is in cinemas December 12.
