Margot Robbie thought no one would notice her in Wolf of Wall Street breakthrough role
| Last updated
Actor Margot Robbie has said in a new interview she thought that no one would notice her in the breakthrough role in The Wolf of Wall Street.
Nearly 10 years on from the US release of the popular film, Robbie is now one of the most sought after actors in the business.
She has appeared in many box office blockbusters from The Suicide Squad, Bombshell and Once Upon a Time in Hollywood.
But the 32-year-old from Australia never expected such fame following her success in much-loved soap Neighbours - where she returned to for the final episode in July.
In an interview with The Mirror, Robbie admitted that she didn't think anyone would notice her in The Wolf of Wall Street.
She said: "I know this sounds silly now, knowing how big the movie became, but at the time I was like, ‘No one’s gonna notice me in this film.
"It doesn’t matter what I do in this film because they’re gonna focus on Leo and I’ll just slip under the radar."
At just 22, Robbie had to perform her first ever nude scene for the film, which she says wasn't the easiest.
In the interview, she confessed that she 'had a couple of shots of tequila before shooting because I was very nervous'.
Obviously, The Wolf of Wall Street was a huge success, raking in massive numbers at box office.
Robbie picked up the Empire Award for Best Female Newcomer for her role as Naomi Lapaglia in the Leonardo DiCaprio film.
Since then, Robbie's acting career has gone from strength to strength, as she is now one of the most in-demand actors in Hollywood.
In 2014, she started her own production company with film producer and husband Tom Ackerley.
And in 2019, she finally got her wish to be cast in a film directed by Pulp Fiction and Kill Bill director Quentin Tarantino.
She was casted in Once Upon a Time in Hollywood alongside her old friend Leonardo DiCaprio.
That came after a long desire of Robbie's to appear in a Tarantino film, and she even wrote a letter to him asking to be casted.
Speaking about that, she said: "I always knew that being on a Quentin Tarantino set was a bucket-list thing for me.
"And I didn’t really feel that I was good enough until I saw I, Tonya. It was the first time I thought, ‘OK, I’m good enough to reach out to him'."
Next up for Robbie is the Barbie movie that is set to release next year - she will play the iconic doll in the film.
