Margot Robbie's highlight of her working career was being directed by Martin Scorsese in 'The Wolf of Wall Street'.

The Australian -born actress, who was cast as Naomi Lapaglia in the 2013 hit film, has admitted her favourite moment throughout her career has been working with the 73 year old because he treated with ''respect'' and as ''an equal''.

Speaking about the best moment in her lifetime, the blonde beauty told ''Probably working with Martin Scorsese is pretty high up there.

''The first chat I had with Marty on set he really spoke to me as an equal. It wasn't like: 'Oh she's the new kid on the block, let me impart some knowledge'. He was conversing with me like a colleague he's had for 25 years.''

However, the 26 year old has revealed Martin didn't seem to register her age and regularly quiz her about classic movies way before her time.

She explained: ''When he was asking me about films he wasn't presuming I hadn't seen them because I was young. He was like: 'You know that German film that was made in the Twenties?'. And I was like: 'How on earth would I know?' but that meant the world to me that he showed me a similar respect to that he'd show people he had worked with for decades.''
