Margot Robbie Shares a ‘Hit’ Martin Scorsese Told Her He Makes an ‘Awesome’ Good Movie

Margot Robbie has revealed the one thing Martin Scorsese thinks a movie needs to be “great”.

The actor worked with the filmmaker on a 2013 film The The wolf of Wall Streetplaying Naomi Lapaglia, the wife of Leonardo DiCaprio’s Jordan Belfort, when she was 22.

Robbie opened up about the experience during a TCL-backed “Life in Pictures” talk at Bafta on Tuesday (November 22), explaining that Scorsese would “sit back and tell stories about the Mafia and former movie stars.”

But Robbie, now 32, said Scorsese briefed her on what he thinks makes a good movie great.

“We were shooting the shot where I’m running up the stairs, and he turns to me and says, ‘Every great movie has a stair shot,'” she said.

“I’ve told so many directors since Martin Scorsese said every great movie has a stairwell shot, so put the stairs in there.”

Deadline reports that Robbie said the “free-spirited” tone of the film’s production made it “a bit free-for-all”.

“It felt like the crazier you were, the more Marty would love him — and the more screen time you would spend,” she explained.

According to Robbie, the sex scene that ends with Naomi filing for divorce, which leads to a drug-addicted Jordan crashing his car with their daughter in the back seat, was a late addition to the script.

“What happened earlier in the storyline was I walked 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 came up with all of this.”

Robbie also recently named which of her movies made her realize she was a “good actress.” She said that movie gave her the confidence to reach out to Quentin Tarantino, leading to her role in Once upon a time… in Hollywood.

Earlier this month, Robbie opened up about the “low moment” she experienced after starring in the wolf of Wall Streetand revealed that Disney has officially dropped a Pirates of the Caribbean reboot she was set to star in.

The Australian actress topped the Oscars for her performance in Damien Chazelle’s Babylon, which opens in the US on December 23 and in the UK on January 23.
