Margot Robbie Talks Harley Quinn In Suicide Squad


During a recent sit down with Hello Giggles, Margot Robbie talked her excitement for the film, the costume, and her acting method compared to Jared Leto in the upcoming film:

On her excitement for the film: “I think I’m more excited than anyone about this movie. I’m not even going to pretend to play it cool. I am dying to see it. When people are like “I can’t wait to see it.” I’m like “You’ve got no idea, I want to see it more than you do!” I think it’s going to be so cool, and I just love that there’s a chick character who’s that badass, and who’s actually, like funnier and crazier and stronger than some of the males. I think that rarely happens. The most fun in the group. It’s an ensemble movie, and the ensemble is so strong. Every single cast member is brilliant. Everyone’s character is so good, everyone gets their moment in the film, and working with them was one of the most enjoyable experiences of my life. I love this squad.”

On costume selection: “Oh, we tried on every variation of the costume. I cannot emphasis enough how many outfits, and how many variations of the Harley Quinn costume we tried. We tried the court jester costume, we tried the corset and skirt, we tried leather pants, we tried literally every type of costume possible for her. I really love where we ended up. And who knows, maybe in the sequels we’ll go with the court jester one. I think there’s a world of possibilities.”

Her approach in comparison to Jared Leto’s method acting: “No, I’m not a method actor, I don’t think anyone would still be friends with me if I were trying to be method with Harley. My best friend, who is my assistant, I don’t think she’d put up with that!”
