Margot Robbie Gushes Over Brad Pitt’s Kissing Scene In ‘Babylon’

Babylon isn't Margot Robbie's first time on screen with Brad Pitt, though it is the first opportunity she's had to kiss him for work.

Margot Robbie recently confessed to being responsible for a show-stopping kiss with her costar Brad Pitt in their upcoming film Babylon. The actress, who plays an unhinged starlet taking advantage of every debauched opportunity in 1920s-era Hollywood, revealed that the kiss wasn’t part of the original screenplay.

Instead, the Wolf Of Wall Street star proposed the kiss to Pitt as a chance to check off a major bucket list desire. Margot explained, “That wasn’t in the script,” adding, “but I thought, “When else am I gonna get the chance to kiss Brad Pitt? I’m just gonna go for it.” Asked for her reaction to the kiss, she let out a laugh and said, ‘It was great!’ The blond beauty explained how she sold Chazelle, who won the Best Director Academy Award for his hit Hollywood musical La La Land, on adding in a kiss between her and Brad.

The actress added, ‘I said, “Damien, I think Nellie would just go up and kiss Jack.”‘ She continued, ‘And Damien was like, “Well, she could — wait, hold on. You just wanna kiss Brad Pitt.” ‘And I was like, “Oh, so sue me. This opportunity might never come up again,”‘ she continued. ‘And he was like, “It does work for the character,” and I was like, “I think so.”‘ Although she thought of the kiss almost as a lark, Chazelle was convinced it was the right move after the first take, so he made him repeat it.

Margot revealed later in the interview that Brad wasn’t the only star she kissed while filming Babylon. ‘I actually kissed Katherine [Waterston] as well,’ she shared, ‘but I don’t know if that made the cut.’ However, Babylon isn’t Margot’s first time on screen with Brad, though it is the first opportunity she’s had to kiss him for work.

The two starred together in Quentin Tarantino’s acclaimed film Once Upon A Time In Hollywood, a portrait of a fictional version of Tinseltown during the tumultuous period leading up to the Manson family murders of 1969. Margot starred in a supporting role as Sharon Tate, the actress and wife of director Roman Polanksi who was brutally murdered by devotees of Charles Manson, though the film presents a somewhat sunnier alternate history.

The buddy film earned Pitt his first acting award from the Oscars for Best Supporting Actor, though he previously won an Oscar for producing the Best Picture winner 12 Years A Slave. Meanwhile, the upcoming film Babylon follows a tale of outsized ambition and outrageous excess, it traces the rise and fall of multiple characters during an era of unbridled decadence and depravity in early Hollywood. The film is scheduled to hit selected theatres on December 23.
