Margot Robbie's Choice Of Halloween Costumes Prove She's Up For A Laugh
| Last updated
Last Halloween it was impossible to set foot in any town or city centre without spotting at least 10 people dressed up as Margot Robbie's Harley Quinn within the first five minutes.
However, in a recent interview, the Aussie star revealed that she's stumped by Harley's popularity as a Halloween get-up and that she'd much rather dress up as a bloke.
"A lot of my friends dressed up as Harley Quinn for Halloween," Robbie told W Magazine.

"When they started texting me, 'What did the tattoo on your right thigh say?' I really thought they were taking the piss.
"I was like, 'Ha ha'. But they wrote back, 'No, seriously, we are dressing as Harley for Halloween!' And so many guys dressed up as her, too, which is my favourite thing. Every Halloween I dress as a guy character because they are always the most fun."
The Suicide Squad star went on to explain that raunchy Halloween costumes had never really been her thing, and that she has always preferred something a bit more 'fun'.
"From day one, I never got the Halloween slutty costumes," Robbie explained.
"I went out as Jason from Friday the 13th, with my jumpsuit and machete. 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 favourite 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!"
Robbie also gave the scoop on her latest project, I, Tonya, a biopic which comes out in December in which she plays two-time Olympian ice skater Tonya Harding, who was banned from the sport for her alleged part in an attack on a rival skater.
"I wanted there to be a clear distinction between the 'real' Tonya and the one I would be playing," Robbie explained.
Speaking on whether or not she thinks Harding is innocent, she said: "In the beginning, I wasn't really sure. There were things that didn't add up. Facts were muddled.
"But the more I became Tonya, the more I saw things from her point of view. I'm on her side 100 percent. I don't think she did anything but be different from what the world wanted. There are cool misfits, and then there is Tonya. She didn't fit in. And I love that."
"Once I put on the wig, which altered my hairline, and bleached my eyebrows, I started to see Tonya," Robbie added.
"The hardest part was losing my natural laugh. It needed to be Tonya's laugh. I couldn't do a triple axel like Tonya, but I was able to master her laugh."
