So, remember the sex scenes in The Wolf of Wall Street? The super graphic ones? Yeah, so while those scenes looked super steamy and natural on the screen (even when they were doing it on a literal bed of money), Margot Robbie, who played Leonardo DiCaprio‘s wife in the movie, admitted those scenes were anything but comfortable in real life. In fact, she has two words to describe the experience: “So awkward.”
In her cover story for the August issue of Vanity Fair (which includes the most gorgeous gallery of glamorous swimsuit shots), Margot explained why the sex scenes in Wolf were extra awkward. Not only were they super graphic, she’s also never shot a sex scene before. Like, ever:
Yeah, let’s just think about that for a moment. THOSE sex scenes. Without any previous experience shooting sex scenes. Whoa.
Margot, ever the professional, said that the only way to get through the awkwardness was to buckle down and view it for what it was: her job. “There isn’t an option,” she told Vanity Fair. “It’s just like, This is what you need to do—get on with it. The sooner you do it, the sooner you can stop doing it.”
We’re definitely impressed, Margot!
