Aussie actress Margot Robbie admitted that she “had a couple of shots of tequila” before filming sex scenes with Leonardo DiCaprio for The Wolf of Wall Street.
Speaking at a Bafta: A Life In Pictures event in Piccadilly, London, Robbie reflected on filming a raunchy scene between herself and Leo in the Golden Globe winning film.
“I’m not going to lie; I had a couple of shots of tequila before that scene because I was nervous — very, very nervous,” she said.
Margot is releasing her hotly-anticipated live-action Barbie movie next July, in which she plays the lead role and is also a producer on the project. Last June, photos leaked of Margot filming a scene opposite Ryan Gosling who plays Ken. Both actors wear wearing neon lycra outfits while roller skating in Venice Beach.
In September, Robbie appeared on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on Monday (American time) to promote the upcoming film. During the interview, she discussed the iconic photos which show her and Gosling in matching pink and yellow outfits rollerskating in Venice Beach, California in June.
Midway through a chat with Robbie during which the two were discussing the differences between living in Australia and America, Kimmel whipped out a pap photo of her and Gosling in their bright costumes.
“I can’t tell you how mortified we were, by the way,” Robbie instantly responded. “We look like we’re, like, laughing, having fun, but dying on the inside.”

She added, ‘I was like, this is the most humiliating moment of my life. Didn’t realise it was going to go everywhere.”
Margot explained that the majority of the Barbie scenes were filmed in private areas, so pap shots couldn’t leak.
“I knew that we had some exteriors to shoot in L.A. I knew, OK, once you’re doing exteriors, you’re gonna get papped. There’s probably going to be a little crowd of people who are going to take notice because, you know, the fluoro,” she said. “We stand out a little in the outfits.”
“And, so I knew there would be a little bit of attention, and probably some photos would get out there, but not like it did. It was, like, mad. It was like hundreds of people watching [while we filmed the scenes].”
