Margot Robbie has revealed that she had a big problem with the role that propelled her to international stardom.
During an interview with Wonderland the actress admitted that she didn’t feel confident enough in her looks to play Naomi in Martin Scorsese’s The Wolf of Wall Street.
She explained that in the script her character was described in the script as ‘the hottest blonde ever’ and that she was ‘acutely aware’ that she’s not the hottest blonde ever.
I was just terrified that people would see the movie and think ‘Eugh! She’s not that great.’
This isn’t the first time Margot’s spoken about the role of Naomi Lapaglia she’s admitted in the past that she told some pretty big porkies to her family about the movie, specifically her infamous nude scene.
In an interview with Jimmy Kimmel she admitted that she lied to her family about the scene, lying that she used a body double for the scene.

I just flat out lied to my family for a really long time. I said, ‘I don’t care what you hear, there is no nudity, I’m not doing any nudity. Ignore anything anyone’s saying, there is no nudity’.
And then I thought, ‘Well, the movie’s going to come out and they’ll see there’s nudity’, so I changed that. The lie evolved to, ‘Well actually it’s a body double, and they just CGI-ed my head onto someone else’.
My family don’t have anything to do with the entertainment industry so they totally bought it. They were like, ‘They can do that?’ And I was like, ‘Oh, technology these days, you wouldn’t believe what they do in Hollywood’.Paramount Pictures
During the Wonderland interview Margot also took the time to criticise the press coverage of her next film I, Tonya which recently won rave reviews at Toronto International Film Festival and will tell the story of Olympic skating champion Tonya Harding.
Despite this the majority of the coverage has focused on how Margot looks in the movie, something which has upset the Australian actress.
All the reading, all the acting coaching, and then someone reviews the movie or interviews you and all they do is focus on the aesthetics.
You think, ‘Fuck you. You’ve totally discredited the work I did and it’s not fair’.
I, Tonya has yet to have a release date confirmed.
More of a concept than a journalist, Tom Percival was forged in the bowels of Salford University from which he emerged grasping a Masters in journalism.
Since then his rise has been described by himself as ‘meteoric’ rising to the esteemed rank of Social Editor at UNILAD as well as working at the BBC, Manchester Evening News, and ITV.
He credits his success to three core techniques, name repetition, personality mirroring, and never breaking off a handshake.
