The Margot Corner
- margoterobbie.net -

While at TIFF, Margot, as we know, took part in many interviews to promote ‘I, Tonya’ but she also spoke about past projects, namely her role as Harley Quinn. As well as chatting about her transformation into Tonya Harding, Vanity Fair Editor, Krista Smith, also spoke to Margot about Harley and if/when we will see her again on movie screens.

I have made screencaps of the two interviews and you can also view the videos below.

   

The videos are situated below the cut as they feature an autoplay function:

Hello Margot Fans! One of the things Margot has been asked about a lot during the weekend at this year’s Toronto film festival, is when she’ll reprise her role as Harley Quinn. There’s been a lot of speculation about this, and we know many are wondering what project she’ll do next – so here’s the little we know so far:

Margot has reveled that the role she’ll go into next is most likely the one of Harley Quinn, but she is as clueless as the fans as to which film is up first. She’s expected to appear in three upcoming DCEU films: Suicide Squad 2, Gotham City Sirens and a film starring Harley and the joker. There’s been a lot of confusion around all of these projects, with rumors and speculations about which actors are returning in the future films, which films are up next and exactly how many projects featuring Harley Quinn that are actually in development.

When she spoke to The Wrap during the festival, Margot said “I think next year I’ll be back in the fishnets wielding a baseball bat”. When pushed to reveal which movie will be up first, she replied “Your guess is as good as mine”. This could definitely be a planned coy, but at the moment it seems like she legitimately has no idea where she’ll show up next. Whichever film it is, we’re sure Margot will once again do Harley Quinn justice: and we’ll keep you updated, hopefully more information will be available soon.

Hello Margot fans! Warner Bros. has just announced that Suicide Squad will be getting its extended cut, which will feature a lot of scenes we saw Margot shoot (just like the one where she’s got a blue shirt and is waiting for The Joker) but didn’t made it to the final cut. It will be avaliable on Digital HD 11/15 and Blu-ray 12/13!

During the promotional tour for ‘Suicide Squad’, Margot has been repeatedly asked about her work out and diet programs. It seems people are very interested in finding out how she got in the shape needed to portray Harley QuinnFood4BetterHealth has today posted an article about just this, and I decided to post it here since it seems to be of big interest for very many! You can read it below.

Getting in shape to play Suicide Squad’s Harley Quinn required a lot of dedication on Margot Robbie’s part because she had to both look good in the bikini bottoms she pranced around in and in the stunts she had to perform.

The 26-year-old actress knew the role would require her to have a strong physique and that she would have to work out hard to get the right body. Margot Robbie’s workout routine consisted of high-intensity interval training (HIIT) as well as weight training.

She spent three weeks training hard for about three weeks a day while the movie was first being shot. Trainer Andie Hecker helped Robbie get into form through Pilates, ballet, and bulking cardio.

First up on the workout schedule was getting rid of traditional cardio machines and going for high-intensity interval training cardio circuits for an hour each time.

With a deep background in ballet, Hecker incorporated rebounders and balance balls into the Robbie’s workouts. The goal of the fast-paced workout is to constantly change things up, which taxes the body.

Some of the exercise Robbie did with Hecker in her cardio routine included: Trampoline and rebounder jumps, Leg rotations, Mountain climbers, Bosu ball hops, Double leg lifts, Outer thigh lifts. She would rest for a minute after each set and then repeat the set three to four times. The challenge to the body comes from going from one exercise to the next without stopping until the set is complete.

Along with these circuits, Robbie also does something called Ballet Bodies. The technique was developed by her trainer, who used to be a ballerina. Whenever Robbie is in Los Angeles, she makes sure to see Hecker for workouts. Robbie also loves to take dance classes when she can, and says they don’t feel like a workout at all.

Margot Robbie’s Diet
Robbie flat out says she hates to diet and she doesn’t really follow any particular diet regimen. She relies on exercise to keep her lean and in shape instead of limiting her food choices and depriving herself of the things she loves to eat.

However, like many stars, she does actively cut back on certain foods while filming a movie, but she has said that she gets miserable if she doesn’t eat. Eating a salad every day doesn’t work for her; neither does having just a half glass of red wine every other day.

One thing she won’t give up is the 10 cups of tea a day she has. Her favorite breakfast is avocado on toast with bacon. Clearly she eats what she wants and looks to burning off calories through hard physical workouts done regularly.

Suicide Squad has been in theaters since early August and is doing really well at the box office.

On August 25, the “Suicide Squad” premiered in Japan. For the occasion, Margot did a photo call and a couple of interviews in Tokyo before the big main event! Photos have began to surface, and I have added a few to our gallery; 4 of which are in HQ.

Since all the interviews are in Japanese, I am having difficulties translating them. If there’s anyone who could help, please get in touch! We would love to have these translated to English. A couple of points have been written below though, and hopefully we’ll have the full interviews soon. The two original articles/interviews can be found here and here. (Both in Japanese)

  • Margot says she both could and wants to play the character Harley Quinn forever.
  • When asked if she used any characters as “reference” when portraying Harley, Margot says she mostly used the original comics more than anything.
  • She says one of the biggest issues with her sexy costume, was that it was very difficult to hide all her bruises in it. She did most of her stunts by herself, which resulted in a lot of marks on her body.
  • Margot started preparing for the role 6 months before they started working, working out with a personal trainer every day, a jiu-jitsu trainer 3 times a week and gun-practice every other day.
  • When asked about her beauty and work out routines, Margot states that after the tough training program ahead of this film, she doesn’t want to work out at all for a long time. But she still has to, as she’s playing sktater Tonya Harding up next, and needs to be in shape for it. She does not follow any restricted diets, though.

Movie Pilot – The Suicide Squad train came and went, and while for many people the film didn’t live up to the hype, it has still made a significant amount of money for Warner Bros. with $640.1 million dollars before crawling to the finish line. So, it was no surprise when David Ayer let it slip that Suicide Squad 2 was in the planning stages.

Not only is a sequel very much in play, but Ayer has also shown interest in having the film be R-Rated. An R-rated Suicide Squad was something that people were expecting for the first film’s outing, but David Ayer explained how that wasn’t going to be possible: “For an R movie, you have to decide to do it right out the gate, and that was never the case here. We were always going to hit the PG-13 rating. But the film is meant to be that. It’s got edge, and it’s got attitude. And it’s got its own voice… There’s a lot in the film that’s going to surprise people.”

The Wrap reported that David Ayers next directing venture Bright would star Deadshot himself, Will Smith, and that it is purposely being fitting into each of their schedules in order to make sure they are free to film the Suicide Squad sequel.

Where does this leave arguably the most influential character from the movies, Harley Quinn though? Margot Robbie has of course yet to be confirmed for the sequel, but is it really much of a question that she will return?

The Suicide Squad marketing team went out of their way to make sure that fans got as much Harley as possible. She was featured heavily in ads leading up to the release of the film and since the film hit theaters, her merchandise has only doubled.

This marketing was not all the filmmakers did to push the envelope of just how important Harley Quinn is to Suicide Squad. Her character was featured more then any other character in the film aside from Deadshot, and she was the focal point for most of the film. It would be madness if Warner Bros. actually were to leave her out of a potential sequel.

While we have no idea what will happen in the DCEU between now and then, or where Harley Quinn will be by the time Suicide Squad 2 comes out, I’m sure the writers will find a way to conveniently fit her into the movie and return to wreak havoc — in a good way — for Amanda Waller.

The Aussie lights up the screen in ‘Suicide Squad’ as Harley Quinn, and has fast emerged as one of the most magnetic presences in the game.

This is not that cringeworthy Vanity Fair Margot Robbie profile. It will not try to decipher what specific sort of “beautiful” the 26-year-old actress is, nor will it attempt to relate her appeal to the differences between her native Australia and America (either in its current or 50-years-ago iteration). It will not be flirty or gossipy or go overboard in describing her physical attributes, which can be gleaned from spending three seconds looking at any of the internet’s millions of photographs of her. It will not make you think that, first and foremost, I am writing about her while drool accumulates in the corner of my mouth.

No, this is a Margot Robbie feature that has come to sing her praises as an actress—or, more accurate still, as a bona fide Movie Star: a status which will be solidified this Friday, when her latest, Suicide Squad, arrives in theaters. As anyone who’s been subjected to that project’s endless promotional assault knows by now, David Ayers’s film is a DC Comics venture in which a ruthless government bigwig (Viola Davis) assembles “the worst of the worst” to pull off a do-or-die mission. This gang of baddies includes Will Smith’s Deadshot, Jai Courtney’s Boomerang, Jay Hernandez’s El Diablo, and Cara Delevingne’s Enchantress, all of whom eventually cross paths with Jared Leto as Batman’s archnemesis, The Joker. Nonetheless, they’re all peripheral to Robbie, who dons clown makeup and short shorts, puts her white-with-purple-ends hair into ponytails, and wields a baseball bat as the Joker’s psychiatrist turned girlfriend Harley Quinn – and promptly steals the spotlight as the star of the show, if not the summer.

Harley Quinn is a psychotic femme fatale who talks in a baby-doll New Yawk accent, and her look—high heels, fishnet stockings, a ratty T-shirt that screams “Daddy’s Lil’ Monster,” and a shiny red jacket—will undoubtedly be ubiquitous this Halloween, as it’s tailor-made for the type of racy women’s costume that gives night terrors to fathers with teen daughters. The character’s buoyant lunatic eroticism is key to her allure, and there’s no more compelling image in Suicide Squad than that of Robbie’s bad girl strutting through urban ruin, a Louisville Slugger across her shoulders, a bubblegum bubble popping between her red lipstick-smeared lips, and a deviant smile spread across her pale face. “We’re bad guys, that’s what we do,” she tells her righteous military handler Rick Flag (Joel Kinnaman) after he complains about her casually robbing a store, and in just about every one of her scenes, Robbie brings a jolt of exuberant aberrant mischievousness to the proceedings, cackling and cracking skulls with gleeful abandon.
