Margot Robbie and Leonardo DiCaprio star in The Wolf of Wall Street, which will be releasing this December after much deliberation and speculation. Director Martin Scorsese has reportedly cut the film's running time down to a massive 3 hours, although the reviews and critics screening have already started.
Margot, the 23-year-old actress fresh out of film school, already has several credits before getting cast in this role. She was on the cancelled TV show 'Pan Am', and also had a brief supporting role in 'About Time' with Rachel McAdams. Then, she was cast in the Wolf of Wall Street, much to her surprise.
The actress reveals that she initially didn't take a liking to her character, explaining to Elle, "It’s a very provocative film. When I got the material, I didn’t like the character. But by the time we got to shooting, I loved her. She’s a badass who’s making lemonade—with no fucking lemons.”
Margot's already getting plenty of attention for the role, and she was later cast as Will Smith's love interest in the film 'Focus', which initially had Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone attached. Alas, just three years into her career, she's already working with A-list actors and directors and that doesn't look like it's going to stop anytime soon.
