Margot Robbie's magic ambition

Margot Robbie wanted to be a magician when she was younger.

The 'Legend of Tarzan' actress didn't realise acting was a "job" so had her heart set on performing tricks for people because she thought her conjuring was "genius".

She said: "When I was little, I thought I was going to be a magician.

"I had tricks and thought they were genius. I didn't decide, 'I'm going to be an actress.' I didn't know that was a job. I thought that only happened to people born in Hollywood. But I put on shows at home, and I used to watch videos over and over and knew them by heart. I did drama at school and was in all the plays just because I liked doing it."

The 26-year-old Australian became a household name after starring opposite Leonardo DiCaprio in 'The Wolf of Wall Street', a movie which featured her first sex scene.

And Margot admitted she found filming the raunchy footage "awkward" and was desperate to get it over with.

She told Vanity Fair magazine: "In that first low-budget film I did in Australia, I had a shower scene.

"So I was practically naked there as well, but it wasn't anywhere as much as in 'Wolf', but it was still...

"Actually, I hadn't done a proper sex scene before. I'd done scenes where it's leading into sex or sex has just finished, but I hadn't done a start-to-finish sex scene like I did in Wolf. That was my first.

"Tons of people are watching you."

Asked if she was worried she wouldn't be able to do it, she added: "There isn't an option. It's just like, This is what you need to do - get on with it. The sooner you do it, the sooner you can stop doing it.

"It's so awkward."
