Margot Robbie has politely declined Hugh Hefner’s typically sexist ‘the girl that plays Leo’s wife – she’s pretty’ offer to pose naked for Playboy magazine.
The Wolf Of Wall Street actress, who caused a cinematic stir by opting to shoot a full-frontal scene in Scorsese’s latest film, told New Zealand radio station The Edge she’d simply “put her family through enough” to accept the 87-year-old’s sleaze-laced offer.
However, she added, she has no regrets about baring all for the Academy Award-nominated movie, in which she stars as Leonardo DiCaprio’s character Jordan Belfort’s wife Naomi Lapaglia.
"When I'm in my 50s I'm going to be looking back saying, 'Whoop, whoop', look how good mum looked," she said.
"I had a crew around me making me look that good. That was not completely my assets," she told the Sydney Daily Telegraph.

Margot Robbie Facts & Figure(s)
1/9 Margot Fact 1: She fought off Kristen Stewart and Jessica Biel to score the role in Scorsese's Oscar-nominated The Wolf of Wall Street.
2/9 Margot Fact 2: She admitted to indulging in a spot of Dutch courage before shooting sex scenes with Leonardo DiCaprio in The Wolf of Wall Street: "I did three shots of tequila at like nine in the morning, right before doing it," she said.
3/9 Margot Fact 3: Her nickname is 'Maggot'. "It started when I was five, Grade One and I detested it," she said. "By the time I was eight I realised it wasn't going anywhere so I embraced it but when I moved to Melbourne people started calling me it and I hadn't even told them it was my nickname."
4/9 Margot Fact 4: She's already been the subject of an affair scandal. "There's absolutely no truth to the ridiculous rumor. It's disappointing that goofing around on set could be taken so out of context," she said of reports she'd hooked up with Focus co-star Will Smith
5/9 Margot Fact 5: She's a fast food junky. Sickeningly. "I don't have a very good diet," she admitted recently. "I love beer, fries, burgers, but if I have to get in a bikini then I eat carrot sticks for three days. I'm one extreme or the other."
6/9 Margot Fact 6: She scored her big break in Aussie soap Neighbours playing Donna Freeman... Until her character was written out in 2011.
7/9 Margot Fact 8: Margot was once a "sandwich artist" at a local Subway. Apparently.
8/9 Margot Fact 9: She wanted to be a Charlie's Angel in the modern adaptations, but was rejected during the audition phase.
9/9 Margot Fact 10: And the greatest fact of all. She has memorised whole scenes from 1993 slap-stick laugh-a-thon Robin Hood: Men in Tights.
"And I had eaten an apple pie the night before so don't come to me for diet advice, just have a whole team lighting you and oiling you and you will look fantastic."
Her comments came after Hefner made an open offer to the Australian actress to star as the centrefold of the men’s title.
"The girl that plays [Jordan Belfort's] wife in [Wolf of Wall Street] is very, very pretty," he told US magazine last month, before instructing his ‘people’ to: "Send her a message!
"We're ready for her. She would be great."
Sadly for Hefner, Robbie certainly doesn’t need the pocket change. Even in her native country, The Wolf Of Wall Street grossed more than $1million on its opening day.
Plus, she's already scored a spot on the cover of Vanity Fair's coveted Hollywood issue, out on 7 February, so... Sorry Hugh. It's a thanks but no thanks.
