Margot Robbie got her big break starring alongside Leonardo DiCaprio in the 2013 Martin Scorsese film The Wolf of Wall Street. In a recently resurfaced interview, she revealed why she actually insisted on stripping down completely naked for a sex scene in the movie.

When she was interviewed by UK’s Daily Telegraph in 2014, she was initially “apprehensive” about going full naked, but then when Scorsese offered to tone down the scene, she blatantly refused.

“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.

“The whole point of Naomi [her character] 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.”

Robbie further revealed in a separate interview with Porter that she had to ‘really deeply commit’ to the scene.

“All men,” she revealed to Porter. “And for 17 hours, I’m pretending to be touching myself. It’s just a very weird thing, and you have to bury the embarrassment and absurdity, really deep, and fully commit.”

Robbie went on to star in The Legend of Tarzan, Suicide Squad, Bombshell, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, I, Tonya, and many more.
