Margot Robbie Shares One ‘Shot’ Martin Scorsese Told Her A Good Movie Is ‘Great’

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

The actor collaborated with the filmmaker on the 2013 film The Wolf from Wall Streetplaying Naomi Lapaglia, wife of Jordan Belfort (Leonardo DiCaprio), when she was 22.

Robbie reflected on the experience during his “Life in Pictures powered by TCL” lecture at Bafta on Tuesday (November 22), explaining that Scorsese would “sit around and tell stories about the mafia and old movie stars.”

But Robbie, now 32, said Scorsese tipped her off, which he believes makes a good movie great.

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

“I’ve told so many directors that Martin Scorsese said every great movie has a stairwell shot, so point the stairway there.”

Deadline reports that Robbie said the film’s laid-back “tone” in production made it “a little bit free for everyone”.

“It was like the crazier you are, the more Marty will like it – and the more screen time you’ll get,” she explained.

According to Robbie, the sex scene that ends with Naomi asking for a divorce, leading to Jordan crashing his car under the influence of drugs with their daughter in the back seat, was a late addition to the script.

“What happened earlier in the script was I went 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 to three in the morning. and invented it all.”
