Margot Robbie says she lied to her family about going nude in The Wolf Of Wall Street.
The Australian actress comes from a small town, and didn’t want to shock her parents.
According to Margot, she came up with a number of explanations for being naked on film when she realized her parents would watch it.
“I just flat-out lied to my family for a really long time and I said, ‘I don’t care what you hear; there’s no nudity; I’m not doing any nudity. Ignore anything anyone’s saying; there’s no nudity,’ ” she told host Jimmy Kimmel on his talk show. “And then I thought, ‘The movie’s going to come out and they’re going to see that there’s nudity,’ so I changed that to ‘It’s actually a body double and they just CGI’d my head onto someone else.’”
Luckily for the 23-year-old, her family are not connected to Hollywood and believed everything she told them. Margot finally decided to tell the truth but advised reading the book first in preparation.
“My family doesn’t have anything to do with the entertainment industry … and they were like, ‘They can do that? And I was like, ‘Oh, technology these days. You wouldn’t believe what they do in Hollywood!’” she joked.
“And then eventually I came clean: ‘I’m doing nudity, but you should read the book first, and if you still want to see the movie after reading the book …’ “
Director Martin Scorsese’s The Wolf of Wall Street, which also stars Leonardo DiCaprio, is now in theaters.
