Savage Margot Robbie Slapped Leonardo DiCaprio During an Audition
Margot Robbie is a certified savage.
Oh, and she also slapped Leonardo DiCaprio in the face, as I’m sure many other bodacious blondes, specifically Victoria’s Secret models, have wanted to do at some point.
You’re probably thinking, “well, she got to slap him as part of a script, that doesn’t really make her chill,” but you’d be wrong.
Because she slapped him off the cuff during her audition for the movie, it wasn’t written in the script.
Yep, say it with me, “SA-VAGE.”
The director of the movie, Martin Scorsese, talked about Margot’s bad bitch moment in Time Magazine’s 100 most Influential People Issue, but Margot has previously mentioned the situation in a Harper’s Bazaar interview.
From Harper’s Bazaar:
“In my head I was like, ‘You have literally 30 seconds left in this room and if you don’t do something impressive nothing will ever come of it. It’s a once-in-a-lifetime chance, just take it.’ And so I start screaming at him and he’s yelling back at me. And he’s really scary. I can barely keep up.”
Can’t you just imagine Margot in a scene like the one in “La La Land” where Emma Stone is trying to salvage her audition?
“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.”
If you’ve ever slapped somebody in the face before, you know exactly what Margot is talking about. When you’re about to slap someone in the face, your mind just kind of switches off and instincts take over. Except unlike Margot Robbie, whoever you were slapping was probably not Leo DiCaprio.
Either way, this move clearly worked, and Margot probably thought to herself while sipping a beer in the shower the next morning, “good thing I slapped his bitch-ass face.”
