Apparently, the actress herself doesn’t seem to like it very much.
The Australian actress recently revealed to New York Times about how she really feels about the controversial sexed-up version of the beloved DC Comic character’s get-up.
“As Margot, no, I don’t like wearing that. I’m eating burgers at lunchtime, and then you go do a scene where you’re hosed down and soaking wet in a white T-shirt, it’s so clingy and you’re self-conscious about it,” Robbie told the news outlet.
After the trailers for the film were released, Margot Robbie received a number of criticism. Indeed, there were many times where the “Wolf Of Wall Street” actress had to bend over in front of the camera and also strip.
She once said, “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.”
So basically, some people are hating on her because she said she doesn’t approve nudity but yet strips in front of the camera.
In her defence, she is playing one of DC’s sexiest characters and being a professional actress means you’ve got to be the character. Like how Christine Bale gained 43 pounds for his role as Irving Rosenfeld in “American Hustle”.
The actress added that Harley Quinn wears hot pants because they’re “sparkly and fun” not because she wants guys to look at her ass. “Suicide Squad” director David Ayer (from “Fury”) did mention, “I didn’t think denim overalls would be appropriate for that character. That’s part of the iconography.”
For those who fell in love with Robbie’s performance in the DC film’s trailer, you would be happy to know that the actress intents on playing more of her should there be sequels in the future – just not in hot pants anymore.
“Suicide Squad” is slated for release on 5th August 2016.
