Just ask Margot Robbie: being famous is no small accomplishment.
The 32-year-old Australian actress’s appearance opposite Leonardo DiCaprio, Jonah Hill, and Matthew McConaughey in the blockbuster 2013 movie “The Wolf of Wall Street” catapulted her to international fame.
Robbie played Naomi Lapaglia, Jordan Belfort’s second ex-wife in the movie, which also starred Leonardo DiCaprio.
Although her performance received a lot of positive feedback and helped her become one of Hollywood’s biggest stars, fame was a major drawback.
According to Robbie, “Something was occurring in those early moments and it was all fairly horrific.”
“I distinctly recall telling my mother that I wasn’t sure I wanted to do this. She then turned to face me with a deadpan expression and said, “Darling, I think it’s too late not to,” Then I understood that moving forward was the only option.
The actress admitted that she had to learn how to deal with the photographers.
She said, “I know how to navigate airports, and I now know who’s trying to f-k me over in what manner.
If my mom is killed in a car crash because you wanted a picture of me entering the grocery store, or if you accidentally knock my nephew off a bike, for what? for a picture? Although it’s risky, strangely nothing seems to have changed.
Although Robbie has developed coping mechanisms for the extreme celebrity, such as deactivating all of her social media accounts, she said that she still has anxiety.
“I try to describe this work — and this environment — to others by saying that the highs and lows are both extremely high and extremely low. And if you’re lucky, I suppose everything balances out in the middle,” she said.
