ALISON BOSHOFF: Margot Robbie plays cocaine-taking, orgy-loving starlet in wild brand-new movie Babylon

ALISON BOSHOFF: Is this Margot Robbie’s wildest flight yet? Celebrity plays cocaine-using, orgy-loving starlet in surprising brand-new flick Babylon

Brace yourself for bad onscreen behavior in Babylon, a 188-minute epic from La La Land director Damien Chazelle.

Some friends who saw it aren’t fans of the era’s comedy, which tells the story of Hollywood as movies transition from stills to talkies.

Margot Robbie plays actress Nellie La Roy – loosely based on wild child Clara Bow (aka “The It Girl”) – and Brad Pitt is actor and director Jack Conrad.

It’s totally over the top, with Robbie battling a rattlesnake and projectile throwing up (thankfully not at the same time).

The film opens with an elephant being lured up a hill… he is wanted at a house party.

Nellie takes so much cocaine that she collapses, in the midst of an orgy scene in which a chicken high on drugs is chased around the house.

Actress Jean Smart (van Hacks) plays a gossip columnist who is also present at the party.

She said, “That first tracking shot… with the cocaine chicken high… went on forever, with about 37 insane things happening, like people sniffing coke off naked bodies. I remember thinking, “Thank God we have some really uninhibited extras in Los Angeles.”

She joked that she told herself, “Don’t look down and don’t back up.”

Robbie, who was in London this week promoting the film, said she didn’t think she was anything like Nellie – who rises to fame quickly but eventually becomes overwhelmed with gambling debts and drugs – “but I have friends who have seen the film and they say, “That’s totally you!”‘

When asked if making the film made her nostalgic for old Hollywood, she said, “I think there are a lot less drugs now.” Co-star Pitt chimed in: “Unfortunately, true.”

Director Chazelle said, “By the late 1920s there was a kind of eruption of suicides, deaths, drug overdoses and I noticed it coincided with the transition from silent to sound. I started looking at the kind of extreme living – the passion, ambition and recklessness of all stripes – that was typical of Hollywood at the time, and it put my brain to work.’

The film will be released in America on December 23 and in the UK in January.
