Being famous is no easy feat – just ask Margot Robbie.
The 32-year-old Australian actress shot to global stardom after landing a role in the 2013 hit film ‘The Wolf of Wall Street’ in which she starred alongside Leonardo DiCaprio, Jonah Hill and Matthew McConaughey .
In the film, Robbie starred as Naomi Lapaglia, the second ex-wife of DiCaprio’s character Jordan Belfort.
And while her performance was widely acclaimed and made her one of Hollywood’s biggest stars, success came with a big pitfall: stardom.
“Something was happening in those early stages and it was all pretty awful,” Robbie told Vanity Fair.
“I remember saying to my mother, ‘I don’t think I want to do this.’ And she just looked at me, completely deadpan, and said, ‘Honey, I think it’s too late not to.’ It was then that I realized that the only way was to move forward.
The actress said she had to learn to adapt to intrusive paparazzi.
“I know how to get through airports, and now I know who’s trying to fuck me which way,” she said.
“If my mom dies in a car accident because you wanted a picture of me going to the grocery store, or if you knock my nephew off a bike – what for? For a picture? is dangerous, but strangely, nothing seems to change.
And although Robbie found ways to deal with the mega fame – like deleting all her social media – she admitted she still felt uneasy.
“The way I try to explain this job – and this world – to people is that the highs are really high and the lows are really, really low. And I guess if you’re lucky it all balances out in the middle,” she added.
