Margot Robbie owes a large part of her Hollywood fame to The Wolf of Wall Street. Despite not being her Hollywood debut, the Martin Scorsese directorial made Robbie a major name. The movie not only paired the then-newcomer with one of the best directors but also alongside Leonardo DiCaprio. But there are also a few interesting kinds of stuff that occurred during the filming which also involved the Harley Quinn fame refusing to do a scene in the script.
The adult scenes in The Wolf of Wall Street are also one of the most memorable aspects of the movie. Some of them have gained iconic status and are still talked about to date. But there’s a specific scene that Margot Robbie refused at once. According to the Babylon actress, she could never pull off that particular scene.
What was the scene rejected by Margot Robbie in The Wolf of Wall Street?
The $406 million blockbuster featured quite an amount of bold scenes involving the lead stars of the movie. The scene in the discussion here revolves around that famous seduction scene between Leonardo DiCaprio and Margot Robbie in the nursery where the latter pokes her stiletto heel into the Jordan Belfort actor’s face.
Originally it was planned that the Australian diva would pull her underwear aside using her stiletto heels but the scene was too much for Robbie to perform. In an interview with The Globe And Email, Margot Robbie revealed that she tried to practice the s-x scene as originally written but ultimately had to improvise it.
“I remember thinking when I read it, ‘That’s just impossible’. I was like, ‘No, I’m right, that is absolutely impossible.'”
Further, the Once Upon A Time In Hollywood actress also added how it was extremely difficult for her to film those intimate sequences. According to her, one has to bury all their embarrassment and absurdity to shoot those scenes in front of a crew that mostly consists of men. The Wolf of Wall Street also provided some other painful experiences to Margot Robbie, a notable of which is the famous lovemaking scene on top of a pile of cash.
The Wolf of Wall Street also inflicted physical pain on Margot Robbie
The 32-year-old actress still can’t forget the s-x scene with Leonardo DiCaprio on a pile of cash that scarred her badly. Margot Robbie has repeatedly warned her fans to not get overly curious and try it as it led her to get several cuts on her back.
“I got a million paper cuts on my back from all that money. It’s not as glamorous as it sounds. If anyone is ever planning on having s-x on top of a pile of cash: don’t.”
She added that after filming the scene, it looked like she had been whipped several times on her back.
“Or maybe real money is a bit softer, but the fake money is like paper, and when I got up off the bed, I turned around to get my robe and everyone gasped. I said, ‘What is it?’ And they said, ‘You look like you’ve been whipped a million times. Your back is covered in a thousand red scratches.'”
But it can be said that the painful journey led the actress to turn into worldwide fame and be a part of many fan-favorite projects afterward. Presently Margot Robbie is waiting for the release of Barbie directed by Greta Gerwig. The movie to be released on July 21 this year is based on the widely popular toy line and will star the actress alongside Ryan Gosling, Simu Liu, Will Ferrell, Dua Lipa, and many others.
The Wolf of Wall Street can be streamed on Prime Video.
