The Australian actress recalled taking tequila shots with actor Leonardo DiCaprio ahead of their scene together, in what would go on to be her breakthrough role in the industry.

Robbie, 32, who made an appearance at the British Academy of Film and Television Arts event this week, looked back on acting as the character Naomi Lapaglia when she was 22 years old.

“I’m not going to lie, I had a couple of shots of tequila before that scene because I was nervous … very, very nervous,” she said during the event.

“Honestly, I know it sounds silly now, knowing how big the movie became, at the time I thought, ‘No one is going to notice me in this film’.”

“It kind of doesn’t matter what I do in this film because everyone is going to be focused on Leo and everything.”

The actress previously described in 2018 that the intimate shoot was spectated by up to 30 men in the room.

“All men,” she told the publication Porter at the time.

“And for 17 hours I’m pretending to be touching myself. It’s just a very weird thing and you have to bury the embarrassment and absurdity, really deep, and fully commit.”

Nearly quit

Robbie later revealed that after the film had come out she nearly packed her bags and headed home to Australia, thinking about quitting acting.

“Something was happening in those early stages and it was all pretty awful,” she shared. “I remember saying to my mum, ‘I don’t think I want to do this’,” the 32-year-old told Vanity Fair earlier this month.

“And she just looked at me, completely straight-faced, and was like, ‘Darling, I think it’s too late not to.’ That’s when I realised the only way was forward.”

The actress, called this her “lowest moment”, and said part of the reason for considering moving on was the paparazzi.

“I know how to go through airports, and now I know who’s trying to f*** me over in what ways,” she said.

“If my mum dies in a car accident because you wanted a photo of me going in the grocery shop, or you knock my nephew off a bike — for what? For a photo? It’s dangerous but still weirdly nothing feels like it changes.”

Robbie went on to star in films including Suicide Squad, I, Tonya, Amsterdam, Bombshell and the upcoming movie Barbie.

Barbie is set for release in July 2023.
