Margot Robbie has made a name for herself through countless iconic performances over the years, but without a doubt, her break-out role was The Wolf of Wall Street.
In the movie, she plays Naomi Lapaglia, the spouse of Jordan Belfort, the infamous mastermind behind a series of stock market manipulation schemes and penny stock scams, played by Leonardo DiCaprio.
Now, those of you that have seen the film will know there are plenty of scenes featuring Robbie that you wouldn’t particularly want to watch with your parents.
Robbie has spoken out about the controversial n*de scene before, back in 2014, when she was just twenty-three, the star told The Telegraph: “I think n*dity for the sake of n*dity is shameful. If they’ve put it in just so that a girl gets her top off, then that’s disgusting. And you can always tell.
“But I also think it’s disgusting when someone would have got n*ked in real life, in the film they conveniently leave their bra on, or hold up the bed sheet. Seeing someone being choreographed into being covered up irritates me just as much.”
She continued: “The whole point of Naomi is that her body is her only form of currency in this world. So when Marty [Scorsese] was trying to help me out, and said in the scene where she seduces Jordan perhaps I could have a robe on, I said she wouldn’t. She has to be n*ked.”
Robbie added: “She’s laying her cards on the table.”
So despite being told by director Martin Scorsese that she didn’t have to be fully n*de for the scene, she decided that it was what her character would do in that moment.
Her manager also allegedly told her at the time that “if there’s ever going to be a time for n*dity, this is the director you do it with.”
It seems this persuaded her to leave her anxieties at the door and go all out for the performance.
Although Robbie was understandably nervous to bare all, she revealed that she actually sat down to watch the film with her family, which is a pretty bold move considering.
And while most of her family were incredibly supportive and proud of her accomplishments, it didn’t go as well as she’d hoped it would when it came to one of her brothers, as she claims he found it so difficult to watch that he couldn’t look at her afterward.
In an interview with the Screen Time podcast, Robbie revealed that after watching her n*de scene in The Wolf of Wall Street, one of her brothers refused to talk to her for months because he was so shocked.
She shared that it took her brother some time before he could “consider” her again.
Robbie said: “I can’t tell you how uncomfortable that was. One of my brothers didn’t speak to me for 3 months afterwards – not because he was mad, he was just, like: ‘I just need a minute before I can consider you my sister again!’”
