A 'Wolf Of Wall Street' Scene Could Have Been A Lot Different Had It Not Been For Margot Robbie

The Wolf of Wall Street was definitely one of the best films of the last few years. Martin Scorsese rightly won critical acclaim for the movie, which ranks up there on his list of great features - and that's really saying something.

But did you know that one scene could have been completely different, had the auteur had his way. It turns out that Scorsese told Margot Robbie she could wear a bath-robe during the seduction scene between her and Leonardo DiCaprio. However, Robbie refused and insisted on doing the scene fully nude.

She previously told the Telegraph: "The whole point of Naomi 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."

This isn't the only thing that's come out about the film following its release. The sequence of Jordan attempting to get in his car while extremely impaired on Lemmons was apparently improvised on the day of filming. It was also Leonardo DiCaprio's idea to open the car door with his foot. This may seem weird, but actually the majority of the film was improvised, as Martin Scorsese feels it makes his films more natural.

The director recently penned an article in which he has praised Margot Robbie, revealing it was the 27-year-old actors 'stunning improvisation' that won her the part of Naomi Lapaglia.

The piece came as Time magazine included her in its annual list of the '100 Most Influential People', with the Academy Award-winning director describing Robbie as 'stunning in all she is and all she does'.

Describing how she won a part in his movie, Scorsese writes: "She clinched her part in The Wolf of Wall Street during our first meeting-by hauling off and giving Leonardo DiCaprio a thunderclap of a slap on the face, an improvisation that stunned us all."
