Margot Robbie may have shot to fame following her appearance in The Wolf of Wall Street but has now revealed the one reservation she had about playing the part.In an interview with Wonderland, the Australian actress opened up about her low self-esteem regarding the role of Jordan Belfort's wife Naomi - a character she explains was described in the script as “the hottest blonde ever” - in the 2013 film from Martin Scorsese.
“When I was playing Naomi in The Wolf of Wolf Street it was so high-tempo sexy. I was acutely aware that the line in the screenplay was 'the hottest blonde ever', I'm clearly not the hottest blonde ever,” she said. “I was just terrified that people would see the movie and think 'eugh! She's not that great.'" Former Neighbours star Robbie, who is promoting Goodbye Christopher Robin, will next be seen playing ice skater Tonya Harding in forthcoming biographical drama I, Tonya which recently won rave reviews at TIFF (Toronto International Film festival).
“Ironically Tonya wasn't unattractive, she's just been marred with that story,” she said. “The worse I looked the happier people were.” A lot of the press surrounding I, Tonya has focused on Robbie's transformation, something she isn't too impressed with. “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,” she expressed.
“You think, 'fuck you. You've totally discredited the work I did and it's not fair'.” Goodbye Christopher Robin is in cinemas now.
