Margot Robbie Talks 'Awkward' Sex Scenes With Leonardo DiCaprio: 'This Is What You Need to Do'
By John Boone
Here's something that should come as a surprise to no one: Being naked on a movie set surrounded by fully-clothed Teamsters while fake having sex is, in a word, "awkward."
Even if that fake sex-having is with Leonardo DiCaprio, as Margot Robbie makes clear in Vanity Fair. The 26-year-old actress models a white bikini for the magazine's cover and, inside, got candid about her first "proper sex scene" in The Wolf of Wall Street.
"I'd done scenes where it's leading into sex or sex has just finished, but I hadn't done a start-to-finish sex scene like I did in Wolf," Robbie recalled, admitting there is no way to prepare yourself ahead of time.
But, she says, you just have to do it. "There isn't an option. 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," she explained. "It's so awkward."
You can currently see Robbie in The Legend of Tarzan, but this being "The Summer of Margot Robbie" -- she also has Suicide Squad debuting Aug. 5! That said, she actually had a different career path in mind as a girl: Becoming a magician.
"I had tricks and thought they were genius. I didn't decide, 'I'm going to be an actress.' I didn’t know that was a job," she revealed. "I thought that only happened to people born in Hollywood. But I put on shows at home...I did drama at school and was in all the plays just because I liked doing it."
Eventually, a then-16-year-old Robbie landed one of her first gig's opposite another Australian star you may have heard of: Liam Hemsworth, in a children's show called The Elephant Princess.
"Funnily enough, I was doing [that show] with Liam Hemsworth before he was known and before I was known," she revealed. And before you ask: Yes, we did do extensive YouTube searching to find a clip of them together but, no, none appear to exist.
Anyway, Robbie narrowly avoided an embarrassing wardrobe malfunction at the Tarzan premiere on Tuesday -- thankfully, co-star Alexander Skarsgard swung to the rescue. Check out the moment in the video below.
