Margot Robbie shares a “shot” that Martin Scorsese told her makes a good movie “great.”
Margot Robbie has revealed what it takes for Martin Scorsese to make a movie ‘great’.
The actor collaborated with the filmmaker in 2013 That Wolf of Wall Streetplayed Naomi Lapaglia, wife of Leonardo DiCaprio’s Jordan Belfort, when she was 22.
Robbie reflected on the experience during a “Life in Pictures supported by TCL” talk at Bafta on Tuesday (November 22), explaining that Scorsese would “sit around and tell stories about the mafia and old movie stars.”
But Robbie, now 32, said Scorsese gave her a tip, which he thinks makes a good movie great.
“We shot the shot where I ran up the stairs and he turns to me and says, ‘Every great movie has a stair shot,'” she said.
“Since then I’ve told so many directors that Martin Scorsese says every great movie has a stairwell shot, so put the stairs in there.”
meeting reports that Robbie said the free-spirited “tone” of the film’s production made it “a little bit free for everyone.”
“The crazier you are, the more Marty will like it — and the more screen time you’ll get,” she explained.
According to Robbie, the sex scene that ends with Naomi asking for a divorce, which leads to a drugged Jordan having an accident with his car with his daughter in the back seat, was a late addition to the script.
“What happened earlier in the script was I went into his office and said I wanted a divorce, and that was it,” Robbie said, revealing that she and Scorsese, alongside DiCaprio, “locked themselves in a room until three in the morning and I made it all up”.
Robbie also recently revealed which of her films she’s realized she’s a “good actress.” She said this film gave her the confidence to approach Quentin Tarantino, which led to her role in Once upon a time… in Hollywood.
Earlier this month, Robbie opened up about the “deepest moment” she experienced after playing the lead The Wolf of Wall Streetand revealed that Disney has officially canceled a Pirates of the Caribbean reboot she was set to star in.
The Australian actress is an Oscar front-runner for her role in Damien Chazelle’s Babylon, which opens December 23 in the US and January 23 in the UK.
