Speaking of the Hollywood drama, Margot explained, “It’s been a wild ride. There were amazing set pieces, including a festive scene that took two weeks to shoot.

“Every part of it was insane and the stress levels were terrifying because there’s so much going on and I didn’t want to be the one to screw it up.”

Set in 1920s Hollywood, Babylon is about the rise and fall of several aspiring dreamers – including characters portrayed by superstars Brad Pitt and Margot.

Bullet Train star Brad, 58, takes on the role of famous actor Jack Conrad, who is known for his hard-partying lifestyle, multiple marriages, social affairs, and divorce.

while Margot is night star Nellie LaRue who works her way through the industry through self-destruction via drugs, parties, and sexual encounters.

The film, written and directed by Damien Chazelle, shows the character of Manny Torres (Diego Calva) entering the world of the titular characters and becoming smitten with Nellie.

It opens with a wild celebrity soiree filled with sex, drugs, nudity, and booze—which actress Margaux had previously described as a “slash-slashing orgy”.

As for her look, Margot completed her look with a black tie underneath that showed off her taut midriff and wore her blonde locks swept back with tendrils around her face.

She opted for low-key makeup to show off her naturally beautiful features as she walked away.

Margot’s interview comes after she and Brad admit that they’ve never been to an off-screen bash, despite both being two of Hollywood’s biggest stars of the modern era.

This wild? No, Brad quipped to USA Today when questioned, as his Australian co-star echoed his thoughts.

I’ve been to some wild parties, but not on the scale of Babylon. That’s another thing,” agreed Margot.

The movie features an impressive cast, including Tobey Maguire, Olivia Wilde, Kathryn Waterson, Phoebe Tonkin, and many more.

Reflecting on the shoot, Margot recently revealed that she stepped off screen to hook up with co-star Brad in an impromptu scene, joking to And! News: “How else will I get a chance to kiss him?”

Explaining the kiss, she said, “It wasn’t in the script, but I thought, ‘When else am I going to get a chance to kiss Brad Pitt?'” I’ll just do that.” It was great!’

The blonde beauty also shared a smooch with co-star Katherine, but added that she wasn’t sure if it worked.

After breaking boundaries, the highly anticipated raunchy film has the cast worried about the amount of nudity — and whether or not it’s allowed to be shown.

Of the film as a whole, Margot admitted: “When I read the script, I was like, ‘This is like La Dolce Vita and Wolf of Wall Street — and I love it!'” “

But I was like, are we allowed to show that?

“There were a lot of scenes where I was like, a) I have no idea how to do this, and b) are we going to survive this?”
