'Suicide Squad' Actor Margot Robbie Kept The Rat Jared Leto Gave Her, But It's Not The Weirdest Gift The Joker Could Have Given Harley Quinn
If there's one person you may not want to participate in a Secret Santa with, it's Jared Leto — unless you're really into rodents, of course. According to Margot Robbie's interview with Elle Magazine, her Suicide Squad co-star Leto gave her quite an interesting present in honor of their characters. According to the actress, who will play Harley Quinn in the upcoming film, Jared Leto gave Margot Robbie a rat in honor of the bond between their characters. Leto, who is playing Harley Quinn's lover The Joker in the new film, apparently got so in character that he sent his onscreen girlfriend a black box with a live rat inside — and Robbie kept it as a pet!
The gift may have come from Leto, but it was likely signed from The Joker — it's no secret that Leto gets pretty involved in his craft and his characters. He sent co-star Will Smith bullets (Smith is playing Deadshot in the upcoming flick) and sent the entire cast a dead hog, all courtesy of the Clown Prince of Crime. While I'm not sure what the rest of the cast did with their gifts, Robbie kept her rat (affectionately named "Rat Rat") because her character Harley would cherish anything given to her by her criminal lover.
Robbie may love her gift, but I wouldn't say it's the easiest gift the Joker could have bestowed upon her. Here are some other gifts the Joker could have given Harley that might be just a tad less high maintenance:
A Gift Card To A Tattoo Parlor
Leto's Joker is covered in tats, you know he'll get the gift card for the best artist in Gotham.
Apparently this version of the Joker is way into teeth jewelry. Go figure.
A Makeup Palette
It's the gift they both can use!
Personalized Playing Cards
Just like regular cards, but creepy. Sort of like the GIF above.
A Vial Of Blood
Hey, it worked for Angelina Jolie and Billy Bob Thornton.
A Scented Candle
It's the perfect catch-all for when you have no idea what to get someone. Plus, it is an open flame — bring on the chaos.
