The shocking act that got Margot Robbie her first major film role
Turns out Margot Robbie played dirty when it came to her Wolf Of Wall Street audition.
Director Martin Scorsese honoured the 26-year-old when she was named in Time's 100 Most Influential People Of 2017 - and revealed the move that sealed her role in the 2013 film:
“Margot has all this in addition to a unique audacity that surprises and challenges and just burns like a brand into every character she plays.
“She clinched her part in The Wolf Of Wall Street during our first meeting - by hauling off and giving Leonardo DiCaprio a thunderclap of a slap on the face, an improvisation that stunned us all.”
Slapping the face of one of the world’s biggest stars when you’re barely two years outta Ramsay Street? That takes guts!
Scorsese assured us that Margot is here to stay:
“Margot is stunning in all she is and all she does, and she will astonish us forever.”
