The Beauty of Retrospect: Margot Robbie

In August 2013, when I first featured Australian actress Margot Robbie on this blog, I noted that she was "in negotiations" to be in the cast of the Will Smith movie Focus, due out later in 2014.

Well, Margot Robbie is appearing in Focus, but in the meantime, she's appeared in the Martin Scorsese movie The Wolf of Wall Street, about crooked stock trader Jordan Belfort (played by Leonardo DiCaprio), as Belfort's glamorous trophy wife Naomi - his second wife.

Actually, the real Mrs. Belfort #2 was named Nadine, so Scorsese took some liberties with Belfort's life story (and several other things).  And, although The Wolf of Wall Street was a rather excessive movie, Margot Robbie as Naomi is still a pleasure to watch.  She makes it better simply by being in it.
