Margot Robbie Trusted Martin Scorsese Not To ‘Exploit Her Nudity’ In Wolf Of Wall Street
Margot Robbie has revealed that she was worried about stripping naked for her role in Martin Scorsese’s new movie The Wolf Of Wall Street, in which she stars opposite Leonardo Dicaprio and Jonah Hill.
The Australian beauty has an enviable body, but she’s not always keen to show it off unless it is warranted. According to Wenn, Robbie admitted that the nudity was “intimidating” as she reflects on it.
“I did the audition tape in L.A. and never expected (director) Marty (Scorsese) to see it. We were just hoping that (casting director) Ellen Lewis would see it. She handed it straight on to Marty and then I got a call saying Marty wants to see me read with Leo in a room with him in New York,” she said.

“There was the nudity thing with Wolf Of Wall Street and I didn’t want to do nudity but then why did I audition?”
Margot, who is set to star opposite Will Smith in upcoming movie Focus, continued: “In hindsight the nudity seemed really intimidating but now that I’ve done it, it doesn’t seem like a bigdeal at all. There was no question of why it was in there. There are scripts I pick up where there is no reason why I’m getting my clothes off (sic). That’s nudity for the sake of nudity which I do not agree with, ever. But when the nudity is warranted I totally agree with it.”
The Aussie actress admitted that she was concerned with the aftermath of the movie, with the powers of social networks and the effect it may have on her family.
“In this case that’s Naomi’s power over Jordan and her currency in the world of millionaires. It makes perfect sense for her to use her body to manipulate him.,” she said.
“For the sake of showing it on screen I had to confront that somewhat shock value … It was, ‘Am I able to deal with that?’ It’s just different in this day and age because of the internet that if I do this it will be forever on YouTube.
“And it’s not just a repercussion on myself (sic) but my family , my brothers and my grandparents have to deal with that! It affects everyone around me, so it’s not something to be taken lightly… But, if there’s ever a time to do nudity, it’s in the hands of Martin Scorsese. He will do it tastefully and he doesn’t exploit nudity, so I was confident in the fact that it would be done well and would be done tastefully. It was too good of an opportunity to pass up.”
