Margot Robbie Slapped Leonardo DiCaprio During 'Wolf of Wall Street' Audition

Margot Robbie Slapped Leonardo DiCaprio During 'Wolf of Wall Street' Audition

Margot Robbie has made it into Time’s “100 Most Influential People” list!

The 26-year-old actress’s entry was penned by her Wolf of Wall Street director Martin Scorsese, and he spilled on her audition with her soon-to-be on-screen husband, Leonardo DiCaprio.

“She clinched her part in The Wolf of Wall Street during our first meeting,” Martin wrote, “by hauling off and giving Leonardo DiCaprio a thunderclap of a slap on the face, an improvisation that stunned us all.” (Read his full entry here.)

“I start screaming at [Leonardo] and he’s yelling back at me,” Margot explained to Harper’s Bazaar last year. “And he’s really scary. I can barely keep up. And he ends it saying, ‘You should be happy to have a husband like me. Now get over here and kiss me.’ So I walk up really close to his face and then I’m like, maybe I should kiss him? When else am I ever going to get a chance to kiss Leo DiCaprio, ever? But another part of my brain clicks and I just go, whack! I hit him in the face. And then I scream, ‘F–k you!’ And that’s not in the script at all. The room just went dead silent and I froze.”

Robbie thought Leonardo might have her arrested for assault, but instead, he and Martin started laughing, and Leo even asked her to hit him again!

    That smile! 😍

  • also…

    A sloppy bun video? 😝

  • also…

    It was Jen Meyer’s 40th birthday party last night. I’m sure Leo attended if he is still in LA

  • girl93

    I don’t get why she is in the most influential people, because she played a stupid DC character?

  • Josie

    I’ve seen it before.

  • Josie

    I can imagine that too. Nikki and Chuck were there too

  • also…

    If the tweet is correct then Leo is back in NY

    HBD Shannon glad we are partying w Leonard DiCaprio

  • leoandtheblondes

    With Nina. And so the beat goes on for now … MET then Cannes. Then, 1-year anniversary.

  • leoandtheblondes

    Lol, you really don’t like Margot Robbie, do you? I have noticed a pattern. 🀣

  • Josie

    If true, we will have some more sightings soon. But it’s possible that he is back in NYC. I expected him to be there soon.

  • also…

    IF true the day he arrives he is out partying. Priorities. lol
    If gen is here there will gen sightings. It’s finally a beautiful day in NYC so I’m sure he would be out.

  • Josie

    I would expected more sightings when he is partying in NYC.
    If he is there and the weather is fine, it would finally time to ride the citi bike. lol

  • also…

    I agree that there would have been more sightings but it’s Leo and NYC so it’s absolutely possible.
    Citibike as in only Leo not sloppy bun. That I’m on with!

  • Surfgirl

    Someone posted from Leo’s house last night https://instagram.com/p/BTOyo_YFSrq/

  • also…

    That would make me believe he is in LA.
    On one hand it’s great to have a peek inside his place but on the other people should respect his privacy.

  • Surfgirl

    I think that is his way of staying up to adjust to the time zone

  • also…

    LOL! He is a jet setter so I don’t believe that 3 hour difference is to blame for this.

  • Surfgirl

    I know what you mean.

  • Surfgirl

    True but I have noticed a pattern that he either goes out the night before he is traveling back to a later time zone or parties when he gets somewhere with an earlier time

  • also…

    Ok. JMO but I don’t think that’s why he ends up in clubs. LA- NYC is a frequent thing for him

  • leoandtheblondes

    Definitely an invasion of privacy but it’s cool to see where he keeps all of his acting honors. This chick even Snapchatted his dog, though πŸ€¦β€β™‚οΈ.

  • Josie

    Sooo, again we have no clue where he really is. lol
    I agree with you about his privacy, but even his friends post a lot from his house and for some reason that seems to be okay for him. That’s not the post’s that his friends has do deleted later.

  • Josie

    I wonder who this woman is. Movie night again? πŸ˜‰

  • Josie

    yep. Just him (an probably some of his pals), not her.

  • Guess

    Looks to be in LA. hopefully.

  • Guess

    Lol.

  • Josie

    I would believe this if that is from last night. Than the tweet wouldn’t be correct. Still not sure where he actually is, but I’m sure that we will know soon enough.
    I’m hoping for LA too and her still in NYC. πŸ˜‰

  • girl93

    Not much

  • Still Together

    Hmm… I have the feeling that he dusted them off and put them on display, only after winning the Oscar lol

  • also…

    Let’s see if there are more tweets from NYC today

  • also…

    Dm has several posts on Jen’s birthday party. Orlando Bloom was there as well. I haven’t checked them to see if Leo was mentioned

  • Guess

    Yeah.

  • Josie

    If he has invited some people to his house, I’m not sure if he attends to the party.
    Damn, nothing is for sure with this guy. lol

  • Josie

    Let’s wait and hope we don’t get more tweets. πŸ˜‚

  • also…

    Unless he just stopped by and sneaked in through the back door. Who knows?
    I’m curious where he is.
    Is sloppy bun still in NYC?

  • also…

    Yep! Is sloppy bun still in NYC?

  • also…

    Vinnie was out clubbing in NYC last night.

  • Josie

    No clue. I hope so. no posting today

  • Josie

    Meyer’s estranged husband, Tobey Maguire, was also at the party with longtime pal Leonardo DiCaprio

    http://people.com/celebrity/gwyneth-paltrow-hangs-out-demi-moore-bash/

  • Guess

    Who cares. She wasn’t mention in the DM article.

  • Guess

    So. He is in LA.

  • Surfgirl

    It’s nice that Leo can remain friends with Jen even though her and Tobey are getting a divorce. It’s nice when friends don’t have to choose sides

  • also…

    Leowdfan said the guy and girl in the video kept calling the dog baloo so this is Joseys dog.

  • Surfgirl

    If I waited that long for an oscar you bet the display would be crazy with lights on a thing that spins and everything.

  • Josie

    lol

  • also…

    Mystery solved! lol
