Margot Robbie Covers the January/February Issue ‘MANHATTAN’ Magazine
You might not have heard of Margot Robbie but her star is sure shining. Robbie, 23, currently stars with Leonardo Dicaprio, on Wolf of Wall Street and in the process is making her on Hollywood. This month, addition to walking red-carpets across the world including her native Australia covers MANHATTAN Magazine. Wearing a gorgeous suite from the Ralph Lauren collection, the Aussie dishes on filming a sex scene with Leo, working with Will Smith and more. Here’s just an excerpt of what she shared with the mag.
On working with Leo:
“[Working with DiCaprio] was a dream come true. He’s always been my favorite actor. Both he and Marty have such massive presences when you’re around them—they’re unstoppable, like this force that keeps moving; they have so much dimension, it sometimes seems impossible to keep up with them.
“Working with Leo challenged me every single second—the challenge just to keep up with him pushed me and got my acting to a level it’s never been, which is incredibly satisfying.”
On filming the sex scene with Leo:
“We were positioned while they lit around us in one scene, and I kind of pushed Leo’s head to one side and told him he was in my light and he moved out of [it]. He was so incredulous that I had told him to get out of my light, and physically moved him out of the way, he was like, ‘Did you really just do that?’ I don’t think anyone has told him to get out of their light in quite some time. He seemed extremely [shocked], but it was kind of funny.”
On meeting the real Belfort before filming:
“There’s something very likeable about him, even though he did terrible things,” she says. “He just seems to be someone who does everything to an extreme. He works to an extreme, makes money to an extreme, and then he did drugs to an extreme. Everything he does is 10 steps further than everyone else does it, and that can seem exciting.”
On filming Focus with Will Smith:
“You know, Will is really wonderful. We do one take that’s hilarious… and the very next take it’s really emotional and sad, and people are crying. It’s fun—we get to play with different levels all the time. He has the capacity to do both comedy and really serious drama, so there are endless possibilities. I keep getting lucky with my co-stars.”
