Margot revealed that her first real on-screen sex scene was with Leonardo. Getting to know the actor up close wasn’t easy for Margot, who made her Hollywood debut with The Wolf Of Wall Street as the wife of Leo’s character Jordan Belfort. She said acting in a love scene was uncomfortable for “a lot of people.”
In a 2016 interview with Vanity Fair, Margot talked about filming the “awkward” scenes with Leo. “I’ve done scenes where it ends in sex or sex just ended. But I hadn’t done a sex scene from start to finish like in Wolf Of Wall Street. That was my first. Countless people look at you. It’s so awkward. It’s like, this is what you need to do – get on with it. The sooner you do it, the sooner you can stop it.”
In an older interview, Margot also opened up about the difficulty of pretending to be making love to a huge pile of money. She said after a scene that her back was “covered with a thousand red scratches.”
“I got a million cuts on my back from all that money. It’s not as glamorous as it sounds…maybe real money is a little softer, but fake money is like paper,” she told The Daily Beast in 2014.
Margot stars as the iconic doll, Barbie, in her next movie with actor Ryan Gosling. He plays her boyfriend Ken. The Warner Bros. movie, directed by Greta Gerwig, is currently being shot in Los Angeles. Barbie is expected to be released in July 2023.
