EXCLUSIVE: Real-life Wolf of Wall Street’s ex-wife Nadine Macaluso reveals VERY frank advice she gave Margot Robbie to help her overcome terror about filming NUDE scene in movie about disgraced financier

The real-life Wolf of Wall Street’s ex-wife has revealed the very frank advice she gave Margot Robbie after the actress voiced her horror at having to strip down for a nude scene while making a hit movie about the disgraced financier.

Nadine Macaluso, 56, who now works as a marriage counselor and family therapist in Florida, met Jordan Belfort, 61, when she was just 22 years old and working as a model.

The two soon became engulfed in a whirlwind romance, tying the knot in 1991 and welcoming two children together, before they ultimately divorced in 2005 after 14 years of marriage, six years after Jordan ended up in jail for financial crimes. 

After they went their separate ways, Nadine accused the broker of physical and mental abuse, which she said was fueled by his rampant drug addiction and multiple infidelities.

Nadine and Jordan’s relationship – as well as Jordan’s illicit stock market scheme, which saw him steal nearly $200 million from investors – was portrayed in the wildly popular 2013 flick Wolf of Wall Street, which starred Leonardo DiCaprio as Jordan and Margot as Nadine, who was renamed Naomi for the movie.

Now, the model-turned-therapist has spoken exclusively to DailyMail.com about the intimate conversation she had with Margot, 33, before filming kicked off.

She explained that the actress shared her terror over having to get naked on camera for the flick, but Nadine helped her use her fear to make her performance even stronger.

‘She was just lovely. She was sweet, and so young. She was only 22, which was the age I was [when I met Jordan],’ Nadine reflected on meeting Margot, recalling the fear that the actress expressed at the idea of stripping down for the film. 

‘I took her to dinner and she said me, “Oh my God, I’m so afraid I gotta do a naked scene. I don’t want to be naked but it’s Martin Scorsese.”

‘And I said, “That right there, that fear of speaking your truth to more powerful men, that’s how I felt every day [while I was married to Jordan].” 

‘I said, “If you could channel that, you’ll understand really what was happening inside of me.”‘

Margot previously spoke out about having to strip down for the movie, and she revealed that she did end up telling Martin about her disdain for taking her clothes off on camera.

And she revealed that he offered she wear a robe during the scene instead – but in the end, she decided it would be better for the movie, as well as her character, if she was completely nude.

‘I think nudity for the sake of nudity is shameful. If they’ve put it in just so that a girl gets her top off, then that’s disgusting. And you can always tell,’ she said in 2014.

‘But I also think it’s disgusting when someone would have gotten naked in real life, and in the film they conveniently leave their bra on or hold up the bed sheet.

‘Seeing someone being choreographed into being covered up irritates me just as much.

‘The whole point of Naomi is that her body is her only form of currency in this world. So when Martin was trying to help me out and said in the scene where she seduces Jordan perhaps I could have a robe on, I said she wouldn’t. She has to be naked. She’s laying her cards on the table.’

While chatting with DailyMail.com, Nadine also dished on what it was like to have to relive the trauma that she endured during her relationship with Jordan thanks to the movie, as well as her initial reaction to finding out that her worst nightmares would be depicted on the big screen.

‘I was so nervous as to how I was going to be portrayed because I don’t think Martin Scorsese loves women,’ she shared. ‘I thought about how he sometimes portrays women.

‘And I had no say or input. That’s a very crazy situation to be in – you’re going to get portrayed for the whole world to see, but you have no input on how they’re gonna do it.’

Nadine added that she did ‘a lot of therapy’ to prepare herself for it, and ultimately ‘surrendered.’

But there was one thing she held her ground on – she didn’t want her real name used in the movie – and it was something she stayed strong on despite Jordan trying to ‘convince her’ otherwise.

Earlier this month, she released a book entitled Run Like Hell: A Therapist's Guide To Recognizing, Escaping, And Healing from Trauma Bonds

She shared: ‘I said, “I make no money. I have no creative input. This movie is not about my narrative. So just on principle. I’m not letting you use my name.”‘ 

Despite her nerves, Nadine recalled feeling relieved when she watched it for the first time. 

‘It’s maybe not exactly the way I would [tell the story], that wasn’t my narrative or the way I saw myself through that whole experience, but it was fine,’ she added. ‘I was totally OK with it. It wasn’t that bad.’

Nadine has become a viral TikTok star in a recent months for spilling numerous secrets about their marriage, revealing which scenes of the movie were accurate and which were exaggerated for the sake of views, and using her experience to give others who may be dealing with unhealthy relationships advice. 

Earlier this month, she released a book entitled Run Like Hell: A Therapist’s Guide To Recognizing, Escaping, And Healing From Trauma Bonds as a bid to help survivors ‘go on to have healthy, positive relationships and lives, armed with knowledge and awareness.’

Jordan spent 22 months in prison after it was brought to light that he had scammed more than 1,500 people through an elaborate stockbroker scheme in 1999 – all while he was married to Nadine. 

Nadine has since remarried, and she has been with her new husband, John Macaluso, who has three kids from a past relationship, for 23 years now.
