A meme is circling Twitter claiming that Margot Robbie didn’t wear any underwear during that Wolf of Wall Street nursery scene – but it’s not actually true.
The Australian actress starred in the 2013 movie with Leonardo DiCaprio, which follows the story of a stockbroker who takes a hit after a Wall Street crash.
Margot Robbie meme circles Twitter
The Twitter meme contains a screenshot of the famous nursery scene, where Robbie’s character seduces her husband in their baby’s bedroom.
“Did you know? Margot Robbie didn’t wear underwear in this scene to make the scene more relatistic,” the caption says.
Underneath is the famous DiCaprio laughing meme with the text: “Leonardo after failing the 100th take.”
The viral meme is a picture of the Titanic star smiling while holding a drink in the 2012 film Django Unchained.
It jokingly suggests that Leo was happy as he got to stare at an underwear-less Margot Robbie, but the whole thing is fake news.
Margot Robbie did wear underwear
During a 2014 interview with Daily Beast, the actress revealed she was wearing skin-colored underwear while filming the raunchy scene.
The publication asked if she “pulled a Basic Instinct,” to which she said: “No, I was wearing flesh-colored underwear.”
In the 1992 movie Basic Instinct, Sharon Stone famously wore no underwear while filming her cross-legged scene.
Stone claimed she was tricked into removing her knickers by a group of producers who claimed the light reflection meant they could see her underwear.
‘I was secretly dreading that scene’
Speaking to IndieWire, the Barbie star said she was “secretly dreading” the nursery scene in The Wolf of Wall Street.
It sees Robbie’s character Naomi pleasuring herself after she caught her husband Jordan, played by Dicaprio, cheating on her.
She teases the stockbroker by spreading her legs in front of him, but says he isn’t allowed to touch her for a while.
He then points out that he hid a camera inside a teddy bear which meant their security watched the action, and she quickly stops.
“I was secretly dreading that scene,” she said. “That was going to be more uncomfortable to watch than the sex scene at the end. It was going to be really awkward.”
In another interview with Porter, the actress revealed the scene was filmed in a “tiny bedroom with 30 crew crammed in,” adding: “All men.”
“For 17 hours I’m pretending to be touching myself. It’s just a very weird thing and you have to bury the embarrassment and the absurdity, really deep, and fully commit.”
