Margot Robbie Admits Wolf Of Wall Street Instant Fame Was ‘Pretty Awful’

Margot Robbie Admits Wolf Of Wall Street Instant Fame Was ‘Pretty Awful’ Paramount Pictures

Margot Robbie admits that she nearly quit acting after she shot to fame following the release of “The Wolf of Wall Street.” The Australian actress, 32, said it was “pretty awful” to see her life change literally overnight.

  1. Robbie wasn’t ready for the realities of fame. In an interview with Vanity Fair, Robbie admitted that the attention she received after the Martin Scorcese film sent her spiraling and questioning whether or not she actually wanted to be in Hollywood. “Something was happening in those early stages and it was all pretty awful, and I remember saying to my mum, ‘I don’t think I want to do this,'” she recalled. “She just looked at me, completely straight-faced, and was like, ‘Darling, I think it’s too late not to.’ That’s when I realized the only way was forward.”
  2. While she was famous back in Australia, it was nothing like Hollywood. Robbie appeared on the popular soap opera “Neighbors” back in her homeland, but it was nothing like what she’d experience when she made it in America. For that reason, it was jarring and hard to deal with. However, there was an upside to the experience.
  3. Robbie learned quickly how to navigate fame. “I know how to go through airports, and now I know who’s trying to f**k me over in what ways,” she said. After she got over her initial apprehension, she was able to adapt to the way things work in the industry. This ultimately made it more bearable for her.
  4. “The Wolf of Wall Street” proved Margot Robbie is a force to be reckoned with. While she was relatively new to Hollywood, she had no trouble making her mark. She insisted on doing a full-frontal nudity scene as she felt it was more realistic. She told The Telegraph in 2014: “I think nudity for the sake of nudity 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 naked 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 added: “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 naked.”
