Actress Margot Robbie has made a name for herself as one of this generation’s top performers in the acting world. There is no doubt that the actress is at the top of her game right now, having starred in blockbusters like Suicide Squad, The Wolf of Wall Street, and I, Tonya. Because of her portrayal as Naomi Lapaglia in “The Wolf of Wall Street,” the actress gained widespread recognition (2013).
Hugh Hefner, the creator, and editor-in-chief of Playboy magazine noticed the actress since she had to do several naked sequences for the film. As soon as the publisher saw the film, he contacted the actress about doing a picture session for his magazine. Margot Robbie declined, though.
For many moments in The Wolf of Wall Street, Margot Robbie had to remove her clothes.
Margot Robbie’s decision to star as Naomi Lapaglia, Jordan Belfort’s wife, in the 2013 blockbuster The Wolf of Wall Street paid off since the actress quickly rose to fame. The actress allegedly had to take a tequila shot before filming to calm herself down because several portions of the movie required her to strip down.

She said it was quite “intimidating” to take off her clothes in front of Leonardo DiCaprio and the crew. She consented to do it for the first time because she believed that Naomi’s “body is her sole form of money in this world,” and that the nudity was essential to convey that.
The actress was to be featured in Playboy Magazine, per Hugh Hefner.
Hugh Hefner, the creator, and editor-in-chief of Playboy magazine was drawn to the scenes. After seeing the film, the guy who founded Playboy Magazine in 1953 asked Margot Robbie to take part in a picture session for his publication. Hugh Hefner commented after seeing the film, “She should be in Playboy! Send a message to her! She’ll find us prepared. She’d be fantastic. The publisher referred to her as “Jordan Belfort’s wife” because he didn’t know her name.
Although many were angry that the publisher treated her like a sex object and neglected to ask for her name before submitting an offer, Margot Robbie did not decline the offer for this reason.
Playboy Magazine received a rejection letter from Margot Robbie.
As she believed she had “put her family through enough,” the Barbie star then made it clear that she would never again appear in a Playboy Magazine. The actress admitted that while she doesn’t regret the film’s nudity sequences, she will never be able to watch them with her parents.
She was a rising celebrity at the time, so it made sense why she turned down the offer. Declining Hugh Hefner’s offer was not a huge problem for her because she had many other offers and the movie marked a turning point in her career.
