Margot Robbie Talks Acting, Producing & Rewriting ‘Wolf Of Wall Street’ Scenes With Scorsese: “The Crazier You Are The More Marty Will Like It”

Margot Robbie dug into some of the biggest moments of her career in a rare onstage appearance as the latest subject of BAFTA’s popular A Life In Pictures series Tuesday. The session was lengthy and…

The Wolf of Wall Street and she told the audience that she also partly served as a writer on the Oscar-nominated flick.”, Jay Roach’s 2019 drama following the women at Fox News who exposed CEO Roger Ailes for his misconduct.Fans are looking forward to the upcoming Margot Robbie-starring Barbie film for various reasons, and in one of the more unexpected casting choices for such a project, Will Ferrell is starring as an executive at Mattel, with the actor recently detailing his take on the CEO as being"insensitive" and"weird.), also utilizes the transformative power of makeup to great effect on the red carpet.

Robbie said the fraught scene near the middle of the film where her character Naomi Lapaglia chases down an intoxicated Jordan Belfort (Leonardo DiCaprio) only for him to crash a car with their daughter inside was not originally in the script.Related Story Marrakech Director Mélita Toscan Du Plantier Returns To Producing With Four Features Underway, Pacts With Cheyenne Federation “What happened previously in the script was that I walked into his office and said I want a divorce.At 32, she’s the youngest subject of the event series to date.And that was it,” Robbie said."It is, in my humble opinion, the ultimate example of high art and low art," Ferrell shared with the Wall Street Journal about the new film.Robbie said the night before shooting the scene, she, Scorsese, and DiCaprio went over the script and felt that they were missing a moment that would tie the sequence together, so they returned to Belfort’s biography for inspiration.Discussing her “Bombshell” character Kayla Pospisil, the one fictional woman in the film alongside the likes of Megyn Kelly and Gretchen Carlson, Robbie said the role was easy to shake because of the difficult subject matter.“We started riffing, and we locked ourselves in a room until like three in the morning and came up with all of that.

And the sex scene that comes before that,” she said.“It was definitely something I wanted to tap out of at the end.'" The actor added,"I get to play the CEO of Mattel and be that guy who's just insensitive but weird, and then, not to spoil anything, but.“Our brilliant 1st AD Adam Somner was probably tearing his hair out because out of nowhere we were like, so, we’re gonna need to break the garage door of someone’s house, break a car window, and destroy a coach.” When asked whether she found it intimidating as a then-22-year-old actor to offer notes on a Scorsese script, Robbie said the Mean Streets director had created an environment where experimentation was encouraged.“I realized that I — as a person with an established position in the industry, financially set up and self-sufficient — I didn’t know the definition of sexual harassment, and that’s shocking,” she revealed.“We were a couple of months into the shoot at that point..The tone had been set that it was a bit of a free for all,” she said.“Roger Ailes or Harvey Weinstein, they take advantage of the area,” she added.

“It was like the crazier you are, the more Marty will like it.And the more screen time you’re going to get.” When reflecting on the fact that she had only worked with a single female director on a feature film by her 20th big screen project — with “Mary Queen Of Scots” director Josie Rourke — Robbie said she sees no difference between men and women behind the camera and “couldn’t put it down to gender.Despite how little audiences know about the project, some fans have speculated that performers will potentially all be playing various iterations of the iconic Barbie and Ken.” Later Robbie said Scorsese only gave her one piece of direction throughout the entire six-month shoot.The rest of the time, she said, was spent chatting with the director and sharing stories.“It didn’t work better because he’s a man, but every single director has a totally different personality and process.“We spoke all the time.Joe series have been disappointments, yet the Transformers series and The LEGO Movie have fared much better financially and in some cases critically.

I’d sit at video village, and he would tell stories about the Mafia and old film stars, but he didn’t actually give direction,” she said.Robbie revealed that she was given just one piece of direction in six months on set with Scorsese.However, Robbie said one thing Scorsese told her during the shoot has stuck with her ever since, and it surprisingly had very little to do with acting.“We were shooting the shot where I’m running up the stairs, and he turns to me and goes, ‘Every great movie has a stair shot.“The only piece of direction I got was in a scene where I’m throwing water, and I remember at one point him saying, ‘Can you be more on your toes?’ And I didn’t know if he meant metaphorically, figuratively or literally, like a spatial thing… and that was as far as direction went."We look forward to building on this collaboration with Warner Bros.’ I’ve told so many directors since that Martin Scorsese says every great movie has a stairwell shot, so get the stairs in there,” she said.Elsewhere during the session, Robbie spoke about her shift into producing films.In the letter, Robbie asked the “Pulp Fiction” filmmaker to cast her in one of his films – not knowing he would later consider her — and only her — for the role of Sharon Tate in “Once Upon A Time… in Hollywood.

Her first producing credit was 2017’s I, Tonya , a film that she told the audience also gave her the confidence to write a letter to Quentin Tarantino in hopes of finding a project to collaborate on." Barbie is currently slated to hit theaters on July 23, 2023.“ I, Tonya was the first time I watched a movie and thought I’m a good actor.I’m ready to reach out to my idols,” and that working with Tarantino was “a bucket list thing” that she had put off doing because she “didn’t feel like I was good enough yet.And I thought, ‘Okay, I’m ready to reach out to my idols.’ And that’s when I wrote the letter to Quentin,” she said.” She praised the director’s “breadth of knowledge” and called the shoot “thrilling and exciting,” comparing Chazelle’s process in parts to the freedom that Scorsese entrusts his artists with, while being “specific and technical and precise” in other moments.Robbie, of course, went on to star in Tarantino’s 2019 flick Once Upon a Time… in Hollywood.

While discussing the film, Robbie pushed back against criticism the film garnered upon its release for the limited screen time given to her portrayal of Sharon Tate.Robbie replaced Emma Stone who was set to star in the film until exiting in 2020.“It didn’t bother me.I watched it and thought we got across what we wanted to get across,” she said.Next year, Robbie play Barbie in the Mattel property’s first live-action picture, released via Warner Bros.Robbie next returns to the world of golden age Hollywood in Damien Chazelle’s long-awaited Hollywood epic Babylon , and the audience at BAFTA was given a short preview of Robbie’s performance in the film.Babylon is billed as an original epic set in 1920s Los Angeles as Tinseltown makes the transition from silent films to talkies.The actor and producer said she felt “the only way the film was worth doing was to have the Greta Gerwig version,” referring to the film’s director and co-writer, alongside Noah Baumbach.

The scene projected at BAFTA features Robbie as an actress performing a sequence on a raucous set alongside Chazelle’s wife, Olivia Hamilton, who has a brief on-screen role.Discussing working with Chazelle, Robbie said: “He’s brilliant.on July 21, 2023.For someone as young as him to have the breadth of knowledge he has and to be such an insanely good director is just really exciting.I loved every single day on that set.” Before wrapping up the session, Robbie was asked about the much-talked-about Barbie film she is producing and starring in alongside Ryan Gosling.

Greta Gerwig is directing from a screenplay she wrote with Noah Baumbach.“I didn’t know it would have quite the hype it seems to have already,” Robbie said of the film.“I remember when we were trying to set this up, I kept saying to these boards of people that this is the most recognizable word next to coca cola.Everyone knows Barbie.This will hit, so give us more money for our budget.

” Ending the discussion, Robbie, who is the youngest subject of BAFTA’s A Life In Pictures series, said the one director she still wants to work with is Licorice Pizza “PTA, I really love Paul Thomas Anderson,” she said.Must Read Stories.
