If anyone felt like they were gypped on the lack of Joker scenes in “Suicide Squad,” that’s because a slew of them were cut out. Most of them showed the backstory between Harley Quinn and The Joker and Margot Robbie wants them to be made into a film, she said during an interview with “Tipsy Talk” Wednesday.
“The back story is magic,” she said about the love Harley and Mr. J share. While she helped bring the badass villainess to life, Oscar winner Jared Leto landed the role of The Joker.
The actors ran away with the love story. “I think when we were filming we got too engrossed in the flash backs,” she said. Even though she enjoyed filming the scenes, Robbie understands why they had to be cut. “It didn’t make sense to confuse the present story by incorporating that,” she said.
But it doesn’t mean those scenes can’t show up in a different film. “I’m trying to make that happen,” Robbie, 26, said with a grin. “Not for anything specifically, but just something… There’s just so much more to do.”
Robbie talked about the tragic love Harley and The Joker have for each other—specifically his inability to love. “[The Joker] refuses to acknowledge that he even has emotions or can feel anything positive emotions. So he turns them into this toxic, negative thing,” she said. “There’s so much to it. They have a very dysfunctional relationship.”
If she could give Harley any advice, it would be to find a new man. “Find your love elsewhere. Look to your girls. You got to find your love in the good places,” she said. “Don’t look for it in the bad places.”
Previously, Robbie talked about what it was like to kiss The Joker and called it “messy,” saying it would take ten minutes for makeup touch ups. “I've done kissing scenes where I have lipstick on and that’s a nightmare but to have two of you having the lipstick on, it's terror,” she told People Magazine last week.
