There are some scenes that are really difficult to shoot in the world of cinema, especially for a young actor without much experience on the big screen.
For this reason, some artists opt for curious methods to be able to concentrate (or relax) when filming action scenes or risques.
In an interview granted to the ‘New York Times‘, the interpreter of ‘Harley Quinn’ said that she had resorted to alcohol consumption in one of the scenes of the movie ‘The Wolf of Wall Street’, directed by Martin Scorsese .
In the film, Robbie played ‘Naomi Lapaglia’, the second wife of ‘Jordan Belfort’ (Leonardo Dicaprio).
In one of the scenes, the Australian actress had to pose without any clothes before getting into bed with Leonardo Dicaprio.
However, despite having previously worked on several TV series in her native Australia, the actress did not have any kind of experience in recording this type of scene, so she was really scared and anxious about her development in the set.
For that reason, she decided that the best way to get rid of the fear was to take “three shots of tequila”.
“I went to work that morning and I was shaking, scared, thinking ‘I can’t do this.’ I had three shots of tequila and then I took my clothes off and did the scene, and I was fine. It really helped me keep my hands from shaking and it gave me a little confidence boost, ”she explained in the interview, revealing that part of the naturalness that was seen in that very intimate scene was thanks to alcohol.
