Margot Robbie doesn't enjoy stripping down to her bikini because she feels "embarrassed" in front of crew, but then forgets millions of people see the movie

Margot Robbie feels "embarrassed" when she's naked on set.

The 'Legend of Tarzan' actress is considered to be one Hollywood's most beautiful women but admitted she feels self conscious when she has to flash her flesh for her films, like she did in 'The Wolf of Wall Street'

She told ShortList magazine: "When I film, I don't think about the fact that a film is going to come out. If I have to do something embarrassing, I'm embarrassed to do it in front of, say, 100 crew members. If I have to be in a bikini, I'm thinking, 'Oh God, they're going to see me in a bikini.' Then, 18 months later, millions of people will see it, and I forget."

In her latest role in 'The Legend of Tarzan', Margot stars as Lady Jane Greystoke opposite Alexander Skarsgard as Tarzan, but despite months spent filming in a mock up jungle in England, she doesn't think she would be able to survive the challenges of the wild for real.

She said: "I would not know what to do in the jungle! It's a terrain I've never really experienced. I would be slightly more equipped for the Australian outback, but even that would be not me. I'd probably get eaten pretty quickly."

Margot, 26, admits she was in awe of the incredible sets built by the crew for the David Yates film.

She said: "They built a town and villages, they built a 90-foot boat and a giant water tank for the ship to be on. They built so much, I mean in the studio, they built a jungle that was so big you could run through it and not hit the other side. There was a river running through the middle of the studio. It was nuts, I've never seen a set as big."

The Legend of Tarzan

  • UK release: 6 July 2016

The fifth Earl of Greystoke, aka Tarzan (Skarsgård), is manipulated into returning to his beloved Congo by the dastardly Belgian Léon Rom (Waltz); punchy action and tree-swinging ensue. Despite Samuel L Jackson as a sassy sidekick, it's a turgid, anonymous tale of a Caucasian liberator which pleases neither…
