She's made quite a name for herself thanks to her role in the critically-acclaimed flick "The Wolf of Wall Street," and now Margot Robbie opens up about her experience on the set in March 2014 issue of ELLE Australia magazine.

During her interview, the 23-year-old actress opened up about her scary audition with Leonardo DiCaprio and chatted about her family seeing the Oscar-nominated film.

Highlights from Miss Robbie's interview are as follows. For more, be sure to pay a visit to ELLE Australia!

On her audition and Leo's improving:
"He got momentum like you wouldn't believe. He's off and running, and I'm sitting there like a stunned mullet, thinking, 'You've got 30 seconds left in this room to do something impressive.' I think every swear word in my head just started screaming at him. When I walked over like I was about to kiss and I go... [slap] reality washed over me. 'Oh my God, you just assaulted Leonardo DiCaprio. They're going to arrest you now.'"

On her stance on nudity scenes:
"I lied for a long time about the nudity. First, I said there was no nudity. Then I said there was nudity, but it wasn't me, that it was a body double with my head CGI's on, saying, 'It's crazy what they can do with computers!' Then I had to admit it was me."

On her family's reaction to the film:
"The grandparents flat out can't see [the film]. The rest of the family can watch at their own risk, but if we can't have a relationship after that, it's not my fault. If they can make it to the films final act, they'll see a more shocking side to their little girl in a climatic fight scene between Jordan and Naomi."

On her acting career:
"I say this about everything: When I was on 'Neighbors,' I said, 'These are the best years of my life!' When I was filming 'The Wolf of Wall Street,' I said, 'These are the best months of my life!' I always think I'm having the best time ever, and thatI'll never had so much again."
