Suicide Squad: Margot Robbie kept rat from Jared Leto as a pet

Posted on

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.
