Margot: You should have seen me at 14, with braces and glasses, gangly and doing ballet!
Margot: (about the actresses she most admires) Grace Kelly has always been my absolute idol. When she's on camera I just can't tear my eyes away; same with Marilyn Monroe. You can't take your eyes off them. They have so much poise and they're so composed and graceful and elegant and chic. But then they can do this physical comedy and in a split second, they can have you in hysterics.
Margot: (about a certain expectation on the looks of leading ladies) When you look at movies the lead girl is always gorgeous and thin. There is a stereotype that you need to look a certain way and when you get in the business you really feel the pressure.
Margot: I just try to keep healthy more so than trying to be thin. You need to have a balanced diet with the long hours
Margot: (about doing nudity in the movie The Wolf of Wall Street) [Nudity is] different in this day and age, because of the internet. It was like, if I do this there will forever be YouTube clips of this, there will be slow-motion versions. It's not just the repercussions for myself - my brothers and my grandparents have to deal with that. So it's not something to be taken lightly.
Margot: I'm a real perfectionist.
Margot: It's something I've been working on ever since I decided I wanted to come over to America. I started working with a dialect coach to really nail the accent. I still do Skype sessions frequently. Every time I get a new script, we'll go over it. When I'm on set, I'll do my accent warm-ups before I do my scenes.
Margot: (on putting the career before relationships) It's really tough to be in this industry and sustain a relationship. I've made the decision that at this point in my life that my career is going to be number one and everything else is going to be put aside. Later down the track, when I have my own family.
Margot: New York is the coolest city. The place just never sleeps. It's amazing.
Margot: I love flying so much. I even like airplane food. No one bothers you and your phone never goes off and you can't have emails go through. It's undisturbed.
Margot: When you look at movies. The lead girl is always gorgeous and thin. There is a stereotype that you need to look a certain way, and when you get into the business, you really feel the pressure.
Margot: (about slapping Leonardo DiCapprio) In the audition scene, I hit him in the face. It was a bit silly and it could have backfired. It could've gotten me in a lot of trouble but it got me the role so…I don't encourage people to hit people to get roles but in this instance it worked. Acting 101: don't slap your co-star.
Margot: I didn't become an actor so I could show you me. I became an actor so I can show you characters and never have to show you me.
Margot: Never thought I'd say this.. I'm getting ready for the Oscars!!!!!
