The Wolf of Wall Street actress, 32, who plays self-destructive silent film star Nellie LaRoy in the film, said she started to wonder if certain images could be shown on screen – and whether she could carry off her part – when she read the script.

Carey, 37, said its opening scene was an “enormously debauched” and “crazy, wild party” with “lots of people wearing very little or nothing.”

Margot agreed: “It’s pretty much a party-slash-orgy. It kind of turns into an orgy.

“When I read the script, I was like, ‘This is like La Dolce Vita and Wolf of Wall Street had a baby – and I love it!

“But I was like, ‘Are we allowed to show that? Are we allowed to show that?’

“There were so many scenes where I was like, ‘a) I have no idea how I’m going to do that, and b) are we going to get away with this?’”

When Carey said she had watched the film with her mom, Margot joked: “Everyone should see Babylon with their parents. It won’t be awkward at all!”

Margot’s co-star Brad Pitt, 58, has admitted he found the amount of nudity in the movie “shocking.”

Written and directed by Damien Chazelle, 37, and due for a cinema release in U.S. and Canada on Dec. 23, Babylon is described as a “tale of outsized ambition and outrageous excess” which “traces the rise and fall of multiple characters during an era of unbridled decadence and depravity in early Hollywood.”
