ELLE Interview: Margot Robbie

From Ramsay Street to the Oscars red carpet, Robbie’s star is burning brighter than ever before.

With her sci-fi thriller, Z For Zachariah, releasing on DVD this January, we caught up with Aussie soap star-come-good Margot Robbie.

You play a woman who survives in solitude and has quite a challenging existence on the land. Did you feel like this was a role you could easily step into considering where you grew up [in the Gold Coast, and on her grandparent’s farm]?

Yeah there were definitely parts of the character that resonated with me more than any other of the characters I’ve played before, definitely the landscape and just being out on property and stuff felt more like home than shooting in New York, for example. But the solitude part was something kind of foreign to me. I grew up in a very big bustling family and these days I’m always on sets which are with lots of people; and I live with a bunch of people and I’m not really ever on my own. So it was very… it was a bit of a shock to the system to go straight from doing a whole bunch of filming and press to be suddenly in the middle of nowhere in New Zealand. It was a really isolated location which worked perfectly for the film but it was definitely a shock to the system. I think that if I was ever in Ann’s position I think that’s the thing I would definitely struggle with the most is just being on your own, it’s something I’m really not used to.

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.
