“She clinched her part in The Wolf of Wall Street during our first meeting,” Martin wrote, “by hauling off and giving Leonardo DiCaprio a thunderclap of a slap on the face, an improvisation that stunned us all.” (Read his full entry here.)
“I start screaming at [Leonardo] and he’s yelling back at me,” Margot explained to Harper’s Bazaar last year. “And he’s really scary. I can barely keep up. 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.”
Robbie thought Leonardo might have her arrested for assault, but instead, he and Martin started laughing, and Leo even asked her to hit him again!
