Margot Robbie drank tequila before filming nude scene with Leonardo DiCaprio

Hollywood beauty Margot Robbie has revealed she had to drink 'shots of tequila' ahead of filming her famous The Wolf Of Wall Street nude scene with Leonardo DiCaprio.

The 32-year old Australian, who was in the early stages of her movie career when it was shot in 2013, said she opted for a bit of Dutch courage after feeling 'very, very nervous'.

Speaking at a British Academy of Film and Television Arts event, the former Neighbours actress opened up about the scene with Oscar winner Leo, 48.

"I’m not going to lie, I had a couple of shots of tequila before that scene because I was nervous – very, very nervous," she admitted.

Margot, who played Naomi Lapaglia, said she was surprised at the film's success and believed at the time that all eyes would be on her co-star.

"Honestly, I know it sounds silly now, knowing how big the movie became, at the time I thought, 'No one is going to notice me in this film," she added.

"It kind of doesn’t matter what I do in this film because everyone is going to be focused on Leo and everything. And I was just kind of like, 'I’ll slip under the radar.'"

The film, which is based on the story of controversial stockbroker Jordan Belfort with Margot playing his second wife, quickly became a Box Office smash – thrusting her into stardom.

Margot has previously revealed that director Martin Scorsese had offered to dilute things for her comfort, but she made the brave decision to turn him down.

Speaking to The Telegraph she said: "I think nudity for the sake of nudity is shameful. If they've put it in just so that a girl gets her top off, then that's disgusting. And you can always tell.

"But I also think it's disgusting when someone would have got naked in real life, in the film they conveniently leave their bra on, or hold up the bed sheet. Seeing someone being choreographed into being covered up irritates me just as much.

"The whole point of Naomi is that her body is her only form of currency in this world. So when Marty [Scorsese] 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."
