The Suicide Squad cast photos have been setting the Internet ablaze, injecting a much-needed jolt of excitement into the lives of comic geeks and movie fans alike. Although the rest of the team of baddies look pretty sick in their chillin’-like-a-villain getups, a lot of wandering (male) eyes couldn’t help but zone in on blonde bombshell Margot Robbie, who plays Joker’s naughty protégé Harley Quinn.

Decked out in illegally alluring micro-mini shorts, dyed pigtails, a gold dog collar, and HQ’s signature farcical makeup, the Aussie actress is guilty of stealing the hearts of menfolk the world over—and potentially stomping on them with criminal force using those sexy kicks she’s got on. Robbie, however, is pretty new to the Hollywood scene–only grabbing the attention of the masses when she was cast as Leonadro DiCaprio’s wife in 2013’s The Wolf of Wall Street. So, for a better introduction of the lady that’s leveling up the Suicide Squad’s hotness factor, here are a few other things you didn’t know about Margot Robbie.
She looks first class in a flight attendant’s uniform
It’s safe to say that, whatever she wears, Margot Robbie is a stunner through and through. She was cast as trainee stewardess Lauren Cameron in the 2011 television period drama Pan Am, shortly after moving to the US from Aussie. Although it was cancelled after one season due to bad ratings, it’s clear as day that her career was ready for takeoff. Whether she’s causing chaos as Harley Quinn, or attending to annoying airline passengers, Robbie is capable of sending your libido soaring to the sky!
Christina Ricci was her bosom buddy!
Ricci was Robbie’s costar in Pan Am, and during the filming of the show they shared a space in New York. Time to fantasize what those sleepovers were like.
For her, slapping Leo DiCaprio is all in a day’s work
Her passion for her craft gets her carried away sometimes, which in the eyes of a director like Martin Scorsese is cinema gold. During her audition for the role of bombshell, Naomi Lapaglia, in The Wolf of Wall Street, she said she was ignited with so much emotion that she couldn’t help but get physical. She recalled the experience in the cover story of the April 2015 issue of Harper’s Bazaar: “I hit him in the face. And then I scream, ‘Fuck you!’ And that’s not in the script at all. The room just went dead silent and I froze.” Most guys would love to have Margot Robbie slap them silly, but it looks like Leo’s overrated dad-bod couldn’t save him there.
There were other things that Margot also put on Leo's face, namely her high heels, and good ol' H2O.
This vixen is also, ehem, pretty good with her hands
For her role as an aspiring con-woman in this year’s Focus, she and costar Will Smith had to undergo pickpocket training from the world’s best. And who is the planet’s most elusive thief? That's Apollo Robbins, a magician by day, Yale Defense Research professor by afternoon, and quickest sleight-of-hand artist by night. At least you know that your attention isn't the only thing she's capable of stealing.
The scintillating actress is instasexxxy (@margotrobbie) on IG
She was not a fan of Instagram till #peerpressure jostled her into creating an account. Her insta-debut came in March of last year when she posted a cute selfie, with her mouth covered, and the words “I GOT INSTAGRAM” scribbled on her palms. Now, with only 37 photos, she has a little over 439,000 followers, who get a daily treat of Robbie oozing in all her gorgeous glory.
She’s got a bad case of jungle fever…
Meaning she was cast to play the iconic Jane Porter opposite Alexander Skarsgård, Samuel L. Jackson and Christoph Waltz in another reboot of Tarzan, coming in 2016. Most of you can already imagine her being swung from tree to tree, hair blowing in the wind, skirt raising up to expose those drool-worthy gams.

She's a fan of the NHL's New York Rangers
A diehard hockey fan, Robbie revealed to Film.com in January 2014 that she roots for the New York Rangers and even played amateur hockey herself. Of course, in Australia there wasn’t much ice to skate on, which forced her to dabble in field hockey. But once she moved to America, she was able to get a taste of the game she craved. Aren’t sporty chicks the best?
There’s a farm girl underneath all that glamorous seductiveness
“I’m happiest when I’m surfing or out on the farm hunting wild pigs, building cubbies out in the paddocks or riding around on motorbikes,” she said in an interview on the official website of Neighbours, an Australian soap opera she starred in earlier in her career. She lived those years under the tutelage of her grandparents and it looks like they have nothing to worry about and can be very proud of how far she has gone as a silver screen darling.
