Margot Robbie says post-Wolf of Wall Street fame was one of her ‘lowest moments’
Reflecting on the early years of her career, Margot Robbie has said she was unprepared for the fallout of the fame she experienced after starring in 2013 Wolf of Wall Street.
The actress was just 23 when she landed her breakthrough role as Naomi Lapaglia, wife of Leonardo DiCaprio’s Jordan Belfort, in Martin Scorsese’s dark comedy, based on the real Belfort and his criminal behavior that defrauds wealthy investors of millions.
In a new one vanity fair In an interview published on Monday (November 14), Robbie recalled the loss of privacy caused by her intense and instant success as one of her “lowest moments”.
“Something happened in those early stages and it was all pretty horrible, and I remember saying to my mom, ‘I don’t think I want to do this,'” she said.
“And she just looked at me, totally serious, and said, ‘Honey, I think it’s too late Not to.’ It was then that I realized that the only way forward is to go.”
Now that Robbie has been in the business for well over a decade, she says she’s better at navigating fame.
“I know how to go through airports and now I know who’s trying to screw me and in what way,” she explained.
Elsewhere in the interview, Robbie revealed that the Pirates of the Caribbean Spinoff film she was involved in has officially been scrapped.
“We had an idea a long time ago and developed it for a while to have more of a woman led – not entirely female led just a different kind of story – which we thought would have been really cool but I guess they don’t want to do it,” he said suicide squad star explained.

At the moment, Robbie is set to star in the upcoming historical drama Babylon, alongside Brad Pitt. The film follows the rise and fall of several ambitious dreamers in 1920s Hollywood.
Babylon is scheduled to hit theaters on December 23.
