Martin Scorsese praises Margot Robbie and the "Wolf of Wall Street" audition that 'stunned us all'



Martin Scorsese's sprawling, flawed, but, ultimately, brilliant "The Wolf of Wall Street" might be one of the most timely movies released this decade. It's aged like fine wine. We didn't know much about Margot Robbie before this movie, but afterwards we wondered "Who was that?" She had left such an impression on us, building an ensuing Hollywood career that only seems to be growing by the year. The incredible thing about Robbie is that not only is she strikingly beautiful, but she CAN act. 

Martin Scorsese has penned an incredible tribute to his "Wolf of Wall Street" star Margot Robbie, who has been named as one of Time's 100 most influential people.

"Like no one else—that’s what Margot Robbie’s like. You’re asked this question a lot about actors—”What’s she like?”—and I’ve never been able to give an answer I’m happy with. With Margot, you can recall some classic precedents: the comedic genius of Carole Lombard, for her all-bets-off feistiness; Joan Crawford, for her grounded, hardscrabble toughness; Ida Lupino, for her emotional daring. Margot has all this in addition to a unique audacity that surprises and challenges and just burns like a brand into every character she plays. She clinched her part in The Wolf of Wall Street during our first meeting—by hauling off and giving Leonardo DiCaprio a thunderclap of a slap on the face, an improvisation that stunned us all. This is not a complete answer to the perennial question, but it’s a start. Margot is stunning in all she is and all she does, and she will astonish us forever."

This from Reddit:

"A friend was in background casting (extras) for this movie. Apparently the scene where her character taunts Jordan in the nursery and spreads her legs was going to cut to a closeup of her open legs. It was obviously eventually cut, but before it was, they had to find a vagina double for her. My friend (a woman) literally spent the day taking pics of vaginas for the director to choose from. I like to imagine that somewhere there is a file cabinet full of Polaroids of stunt cunts that Scorsese once sat at home, pouring over for the perfect composition."
