Margot Robbie was understandably a little nervous to film a topless sex scene in The Wolf of Wall Street.

Most will remember the Australian actress seducing her on-screen husband, Leonardo DiCaprio, in their childs nursery before later hopping into bed together.

The intimate bedroom scene in particular saw Margot, 28, strip off and, naturally, it wasnt the most comfortable filming experience with 30 other strange men watching the actress in the buff.

Recalling the awkwardness in an interview with Porter, Margot said: It doesnt come across when youre watching the movie, but in reality were in a tiny bedroom with 30 crew crammed in. All men.

She added: For 17 hours Im pretending to be touching myself. Its just a very weird thing and you have to bury the embarrassment and the absurdity, really deep, and fully commit.

Margot has previously revealed that she had to audition for the movie with that scene in particular, so she was certainly put through her paces for the Oscar-nominated movie.

Elsewhere in the interview, Margot admitted that she didnt know what constituted as sexual harassment until the #MeToo movement unfolded.

The Hollywood star explained: Im in my late twenties, Im educated, Im worldly, Ive traveled, I have my own business, and I didnt know. Thats insane.

I didnt know that you could say “I have been sexually harassed” without someone physically touching you, that you could say “Thats not OK”. I had no idea. I now know because Ive researched what constitutes illegal sexual harassment so as to have negative connotations for your job and how you get paid.

Margot will next be seen in a role completely different to The Wolf of Wall Street, with the actress taking on the role of Queen Elizabeth I in period epic Mary Queen of Scots.

Its already being tipped as a frontrunner for awards season, with critics predicting Margot will earn a best actress Oscar nomination while the film itself is a shoe-in for best picture.
