Margot Robbie has revealed filming THAT provocative scene in Wolf of Wall Street was a 'weird' and 'embarrassing' experience.
The actress, 28, who established herself in Hollywood with her portrayal of Naomi Lapaglia in the 2014 movie, became well-known for one particularly crude scene in the film where she is seducing her onscreen beau Leonardio DiCaprio, who plays Jordan Belfort.
Recalling filming in a new interview with Porter magazine, Margot recalled how she dug deep to hide her embarrassment as she had to carry out the risque scenes in front of 30 crew members - all male - watching her.
Wolf of Wall Street consists of steamy scenes between DiCaprio and Robbie, with one particularly crude scene standing out among others.
Leo plays Jordan Belfort, a stockbroker on Wall Street who's downfall came as a result of his firm engaging in corruption and fraud.
Robbie's character Naomi, who uses her sexuality to exert control over her husband, is seen trying to seduce her husband Jordan in one very provocative scene that takes place in their baby's nursery and sees her touching herself and calling him 'Daddy'.
While onscreen it made for very risque viewing, Margot recalls that filming the scene was 'weird' and 'embarrassing' in reality, as she was in a tiny room with 30 crew members, all male, watching her.
She explained: 'It doesn't come across when you're watching the movie, but in reality we're in a tiny bedroom with 30 crew crammed in. All men.
'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 the absurdity, really deep, and fully commit.'
That scene in particular had actually been the very scene Margot had to audition with to bag her part in the movie.
Previously speaking about the awkward audition, Margot revealed how she went off-script and slapped her co-star DiCaprio across the face instead of kissing him in the hope of impressing movie bosses.
She revealed how she was fully prepped for the scene after rehearsing it with her 'poor, poor' manager Dylan in an interview with Vogue. Margot revealed: 'I was in his office for hours asking to do the take again, while he was probably thinking, "Dear God, this is so uncomfortable."'
Speaking of her decision to slap DiCaprio, Margot added in an interview with Harper's Bazaar: 'In my head I was like, "You have literally 30 seconds left in this room and if you don’t do something impressive nothing will ever come of it. It’s a once-in-a-lifetime chance, just take it."
'And so I start screaming at him and he’s yelling back at me. And he’s really scary. I can barely keep up, and he ends [the scene] saying, “You should be happy to have a husband like me. Now get over here and kiss me.”
'So I walk up really close to his face and then I’m like, “Maybe I should kiss him. When else am I ever going to get a chance to kiss Leoanardo DiCaprio, ever?” But another part of my brain clicks and I just go… [whack] I hit him in the face... the room just went dead silent and I froze.'
Luckily for Margot, she made a lasting impression on director Martin Scorsese - not only landing the part but huge praise from the US filmmaker.
Speaking about Robbie, Scorsese has previously said: 'Margot is stunning in all she is and all she does, and she will astonish forever.
She expained: 'I didn’t know that you could say, "I have been sexually harassed" without someone physically touching you, that you could say, "That’s not OK."
'I had no idea. I now know because I’ve researched what constitutes illegal sexual harassment so as to have negative connotations for your job and how you get paid.'
Robbie first kickstarted her acting career in Australian soap Neighbours, before landing a part alongside Rachel McAdams and Bill Nighy in romantic comedy About Time.
She then went on to land her breakthrough role in Wolf of Wall Street, before starring alongside Will Smith in Focus and movies including Suicide Squad, I, Tonya, The Legend of Tarzan and Terminal.
Margot also stars as Queen Elizabeth I in new release Mary Queen of Scots.
