10 Actors Who Had To Get Drunk To Shoot Their Movies

8. Margot Robbie - The Wolf Of Wall Street (2013)

When compared with the likes of Leonardo DiCaprio, Margot Robbie was a relatively novice actresses before she played his wife, Naomi, in Martin Scorsese's recent The Wolf of Wall Street. Because of this, the beautiful Robbie confessed that she felt highly uncomfortable before filming her first sex scene with DiCaprio, and took three shots of tequila to settle her nerves.

Frankly, I think I speak for everyone when I say that she had nothing to be shy about when it came to doing all those nude scenes, but the added alcoholic infusion clearly gave her the necessary nerve boost that was required to film such things. Given the nature of the movie itself and its depictions of excessive alcohol and drug use, it's surprising that we haven't heard that there was even more drinking on set, to be honest.
