Margot Robbie found working with Martin Scorsese to be a ''magical'' experience.

The 24-year-old Australian actress starred alongside Leonardo Dicaprio in the Scorsese-directed hit 'The Wolf of Wall Street' and admits she was surprised by certain aspects of working with the Hollywood legend.

She shared: ''I assumed he'd be very hands-on and have a lot to say, because his style is so distinctive, but it was actually quite the opposite. The most important thing was that he would give us the freedom to explore the characters - he would let the camera roll for 20 minutes sometimes and not call cut.

''It was a very liberal set, you could say and do what you wanted. It was all about creating characters people would be interested in. We had a lot of time, as well, which was magical and he just trusted everyone to do their own jobs.''

Robbie plays the role of Naomi Lapaglia - the love interest of Jordan Belfort - in the movie, and revealed Scorsese was ''conservative'' when talking about some of the racier aspects of the movie.

She told ''For a guy who puts such raw and honest things in his movies, he's extremely conservative when talking about them.

''I remember talking with him about the sex scenes and he said, 'So in that scene when Jordan and Naomi are making love,' and I was just, 'Making love? I don't know if I'd call it that...' He was so reserved.''
