Speaking about the Hollywood drama, Margot explained, “It was a wild ride. There were amazing sets, including a party scene that took two weeks to shoot.

“Every game was crazy and the stress levels were terrifying because there was so much going on and I didn’t want to be the one to mess it up”

Set in 1920s Hollywood, Babylon centers on the rise and fall of several ambitious dreamers, including characters played by stars Brad Pitt and Margot.

Bullet Train star Brad, 58, plays famed actor Jack Conrad, known for his party lifestyle, multiple marriages, affairs and divorces.

While Margot is the overnight starlet, Nellie LaRoy, who navigates her way through the industry by self-destructing via drugs, parties and sexual encounters.

Written and directed by Damien Chazelle, the film shows the character of Manny Torres (Diego Calva) entering the high-level world and falling in love with Nellie.

It opens with a crazy celebrity night filled with sex, drugs, nudity and booze – which Wolf of Wall Street actress Margot has previously described as a “party-slash-orgy”.

For her appearance, Margot completed her look with a black bralette underneath that showed off her taut midriff and wore her blonde tresses swept up with tendrils around her face.

She opted for understated makeup to show off her naturally pretty features as she beamed.

Margot’s interview comes after she and Brad both admitted they didn’t attend such a crazy off-screen party, despite being among the biggest stars in Hollywood today .

‘Is it wild? No,’ Brad joked to USA Today when asked, as his Australian co-star echoed his thoughts.

‘I’ve been to crazy parties, but not on the scale of Babylon. That’s something else, agreed Margot.

The film features a sensational cast, including Tobey Maguire, Olivia Wilde, Katherine Waterson, Phoebe Tonkin and many more.

And reflecting on the shoot, Margot recently revealed she walked off-screen to kiss her co-star Brad in an impromptu scene, joking with E! News, “How could I have the chance to kiss her?”

Explaining the kiss, she shared, “It wasn’t in the script, but I thought, ‘When will I get the chance to kiss Brad Pitt? I’ll just go” It was great!’

The blonde beauty also shared a kiss with co-star Katherine, but added she wasn’t sure it went down.

Breaking boundaries, the highly anticipated steamy film even left the cast concerned with its amount of nudity – and whether it was allowed to be shown.

Of the film as a whole, Margot confessed, “When I read the script, I was like, ‘It’s like La Dolce Vita and Wolf of Wall Street had a baby – and I love it! “.

‘But I was like, ‘Are we allowed to show this?’

“There were so many scenes where I was like, a) I have no idea how I’m going to do this, and b) are we going to get away with this?”
