Margot Robbie Reveals The Worst Thing About The Wolf Of Wall Street

Vintage Chanel dresses, expensive jewels and let's not forget, the chance to get up close and personal with Leonardo DiCaprio... filming The Wolf of Wall Street must have been a dream for Margot Robbie.

However, playing the role of a millionaire's wife has its drawbacks.


In a recent interview with Grazia, Robbie reveals that she struggled with the excessive beauty regime that was required to play Naomi Lapaglia.

Robbie spent at least two hours in hair and makeup each day and she had to wear "really long acrylic nails" for six months whilst shooting the film. Fake nails for six months? That's got to be annoying.

"It was incredibly inconvenient for my personal life. I don't know how other women manage," Robbie said in her interview.

"The most mundane tasks were suddenly monumental tasks - unbuttoning buttons, texting, tying shoe laces, getting lids off things... I couldn't believe how much it affected my life, it was so difficult."


Yep, acrylic nails can be a real pain. But team that with a spray tan? Suddenly the beautifying process becomes hard work.

"I'd walk around my house like a mannequin with wet nails and tan and feel disgusting. It was ridiculous," Robbie said.

So Margot isn't a makeup girl then? "I don't like wearing lipstick, or heaps of eye shadow, and they were staples for the character."

And there we were thinking that it was the full-on nudity and sex scenes that might have bothered her.
