The legendary director has been criticised for his handling of Margot Robbie’s part in his new movie, but he opened up on the Aussie actress’ commitment to the film and the process.

  Recently at a Beverly Hills hotel the famous quartet of Margot Robbie, Leonardo DiCaprio, Brad Pitt and Quentin Tarantino were chatting away with a group of journalists.

  But Tarantino revealed he did not put much effort into the dialogue he wanted Robbie to say.

  Robbie played Hollywood starlet Sharon Tate in the film, and Tarantino said it was not until “literally just before” doing the scene he would come up with lines for the Queenslander.

  Once Upon a Time in Hollywood centres around DiCaprio’s character, Rick Dalton, a fictional actor known for a hit 1950s western television series who, in the late 1960s, is struggling to develop a movie career.

  It was Robbie’s role alongside DiCaprio in Martin Scorsese’s The Wolf of Wall Street in 2013 that catapulted her into Hollywood’s top tier of actors and led to last year’s best actress Oscar nomination for I, Tonya.

  Robbie said she would have been happy to do the catering for a Tarantino film if it meant being able to watch him work.

  Robbie said often film sets are artificial with green screens and actors forced to use their imagination to perform a scene.
