Speaking to the magazine, Margot recalled the success she found after starring in the film with Leonardo DiCaprio.
She had just come from starring in Australian TV series Neighbours, as well as the short-lived series Pan Am.
“Something was happening in those early stages and it was all pretty awful,” she shared. “I remember saying to my mom, ‘I don’t think I want to do this.’ And she just looked at me, completely straight-faced, and was like, ‘Darling, I think it’s too late not to.’ That’s when I realized the only way was forward.”
Margot says that part of the reason she was thinking about giving everything up was due to her brush with paparazzi.
“I know how to go through airports, and now I know who’s trying to f*** me over in what ways,” she said, before adding, “If my mom dies in a car accident because you wanted a photo of me going in the grocery shop, or you knock my nephew off a bike — for what? For a photo? It’s dangerous but still weirdly nothing feels like it changes.”
