Margot’s nail nightmare

19th Annual Critics' Choice Movie Awards - Backstage And Audience. Fake Nails

Margot Robbie “hated” her fake nails during The Wolf of Wall Street.

The 23-year-old actress landed her breakthrough role as Naomi Lapaglia in Martin Scorsese’s latest film.

To get into character Margot’s nails underwent a transformation. She had to wear acrylics during filming – a concept she found tricky to get used to at first.

“The first thing I said was that my character needs acrylic nails all the time because that changes everything. Well I couldn’t do anything the way I wanted to: I couldn’t wipe tears the way I would, I couldn’t brush my hair the way I would. It was a massive pain in the a*s to have them on for six months. I really hated them so, so much but it seriously created the character. I was getting them done once a week,” she recalled to Violet Grey’s The Violet Files.

It wasn’t just her fingertips which needed to look polished. The Australian beauty also needed a healthy glow to capture the essence of Naomi.

“On Sunday night, I’d get my nails and my spray tan, after I finished watching football,” she recalled.

Margot has posed for a series of photos for Violet Grey’s The Violet Files. Cassandra Huysentruyt Grey, wife of Paramount chief Brad Grey, set up the beauty website and her new file “offers a glimpse into the transformative world of beauty through the discerning point of view of storytellers in fashion and film.”

Speaking about her snaps, which see her wear a grey pant suit and crisp white shirt while her hair is slicked back and her eyes defined with brown eyeshadow, Margot spoke about the inspiration.

“For this photo shoot I was trying to channel power and the idea that I ran an empire from the back of my limo,” she explained. “I felt like I owned that hotel, I owned that building, and I owned everything on that block. Maybe when I’m 30 that’s all I’ll wear: Suits and a cane.”
