Cover Story: Margot Robbie kept the rat Suicide Squad co-star Jared Leto gave her as a pet

Jared Leto went very method when it came to sending gifts to his Suicide Squad co-stars, including giving a live rat to co-star Margot Robbie, who plays Harley Quinn to Leto’s Joker.

Now, in a new interview with Elle magazine, Robbie reveals that she’s kept the rat as a pet — and even named it.

The rat is called Rat Rat (“Original!” the actress quipped). Several crew members suggested killing it, the magazine’s August cover story says, but Robbie decided to keep it because, “If Harley got something from Joker, she’d probably cherish it.”

Rat Rat, the article adds, “now dines on organic berries from Whole Foods.” Ah, the life of a celebrity pet.

Suicide Squad arrives in theaters Aug. 5, 2016. You can see some photos from Robbie’s Elle shoot below, and head to the magazine’s website for more from her interview. The August issue hits newsstands July 21.

Why did production assistants run from ‘Focus’ star Margot Robbie?

While making the caper dramedy Focus, Will Smith and Margot Robbie trained on set with thief expert Apollo Robbins, who taught Smith mind tricks and Robbie how to lift cellphones off unsuspecting production assistants.

It didn’t always go so well.

“I chickened out when I had to do the actual lift and the guy turned around and my hand was in his back pocket,” says Robbie, mimicking her shame. “And it just looked like I was trying to cop a feel. Every time I walked past him in the hallways he’d put his back to the wall.”

And thus, a set reputation was born. Or as Smith mimics it: “That’s Margot Robbie, Australian ass-grabber!”Read more on the bad word that got Margot the job.
