Margot may only be 23 but she’s been working in the film and television industry since she was in high school. When she was presented with the opportunity with work with Scorsese, DiCaprio, and Jonah HIll, she knew it was a sink or swim role that she would have to give her all. Understanding the character was important for Margot, who took a bottom-line approach to dealing with the sex and nudity. “The whole point of Naomi is that her body is her only form of currency in this world. So when Marty 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. She’s laying her cards on the table.” Margot also encouraged other cast members (DiCaprio) to go all out in their roles. The crew recount how it was Robbie who piped up when they were working on a particular scene with a candle and wax, her off the cuff comment followed by a casual ”Just sayin’ “, turned the scene into a more explicit version of its initial script.
It’s clear Ms Robbie is here to leave a mark on film, she’s working with the best and challenging herself along the way. We can’t wait to see what she comes up with next!
