Martin Scorsese’s three-hour-long feature about the salacious excesses of Wall Street had its share of shocking scenes.
There’s the copious amount of drug taking, an abundance of strippers and the appearance of a chimpanzee, to name a few of them.
The opening scene features the executives throwing a little person towards a bullseye board of velcro. It set the tone that nothing was too debaucherous or sleazy.
And then there’s that scene: the one where Margot Robbie's character Naomi Lapaglia has sex with Leonardo DiCaprio’s Jordan Belfort.
Martin Scorsese told Margot Robbie that she could wear a bath robe during the scene in which she steps out of her bedroom to seduce him, but she deliberately wanted to do the scene nude.
She told The Telegraph:
The whole point of Naomi is that her body is her only form of currency in this world.
So when Marty was trying to help me out, and said in the scene where she seduces Jordan perhaps I could have a robe on, I said she wouldn't.
She has to be naked.
She's laying her cards on the table.
So there you are.
