After the release of Suicide Squad in August 2016, Margot Robbie's character Harley Quinn became one of the most popular Halloween costumes of the year.
Her popularity also led to a spin-off film surrounding her crazy love story with the Joker. The film is expected to to make its debut after Suicide Squad 2's release in 2019.
But you probably won't catch the 27-year-old Australian actor posing as her wild character for Halloween. According to a recent interview with W magazine, Margot prefers dressing up as male characters.
"Every Halloween I dress as a guy character because they are always the most fun. From day one, I never got the Halloween slutty costumes."
"I went out as Jason from Friday the 13th, with my jumpsuit and machete."
"It was my first Halloween in America. I was in New York that year, and it was snowing."
"I thought, surely, everybody is going to cover up. But every other woman was in lingerie."
"My favorite costume, though, was James Franco’s character in Spring Breakers. I did my hair in cornrows, put on a Hawaiian shirt and a gold grill on my teeth. I nailed it!"
"I’ve always dressed up as guy characters, so to think that guys are now trying to take on Harley because she’s the coolest and the craziest—that’s pretty awesome. So many guys dressed up as her, which is my favorite thing."
