"Suicide Squad" star Margot Robbie shared how Jared Leto scared her when she saw him out of his Joker makeup and how she almost played Sue Storm in "Fantastic Four" during an interview with Daily News.
"At first it was kind of confronting (to be up close) but now I'm so used to it, I think if I ever saw him out of makeup now I would be really confused," Robbie said of co-star Jared Leto, who plays the Joker in the film. "Actually, I saw him out of makeup once and I was actually petrified of him. I was too scared to go up and didn't know who that person was, and when he got back into his makeup I was far more comfortable."
"I guess the one common denominator is we're all bad guys, it just makes everything more fun that way... The scenes are more interesting I feel, when you just don't know how the characters are going to react, especially with Harley, who's absolutely nuts... she's either going to kill you or laugh and give you a hug," she added.
She also recalled how she read for the part of Sue Storm in Josh Trank's "Fantastic Four" film, saying "I didn't really resonate with the script, and I haven't seen the movie, so I don't really know how it turned out different from the page... But I had a great meeting with the director and I really enjoyed that."
"Suicide Squad," based on the DC Comics team and starring Leto, Robbie, Will Smith as Deadshot, Jai Courtney as Captain Boomerang, Cara Delevingne as Enchantress, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje as Killer Croc, Karen Fukuhara as Katana, Joel Kinnaman as Rick Flag, Jay Hernandez as El Diablo and Adam Beach as Slipknot, is scheduled for release on Aug. 5, 2016.
