“Suicide Squad” star Margot Robbie has revealed that she loved her role as the bad girl Harley Quinn so much that she wanted to take home a piece of the psychotic character. Even though the Aussie star keeps Quinn’s baseball bat by her bed, her fishnets and hot pants did not find a place in her bedroom.

Even though the actress’ real-life boyfriend of three years is British filmmaker Tom Ackerley, Robbie’s character Harley Quinn is desperately in love with The Joker, played by Jared Leto. As per Robbie, Quinn’s weapon of choice, the baseball bat with the words “good night” inscribed down the side, serves a double purpose in her home.

“In case anyone breaks into my house, I’ll be fully prepared. Plus when I go to sleep it says ‘good night,’” Robbie told News Corp Australia.

Just like 2016’s blockbuster “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice,” “Suicide Squad” is also set in the same DC Comics universe. The movie is expected to hit Australian cinemas on Aug. 4. Aussie fans are eagerly waiting to see their favourite star in a new avatar and swinging her baseball bat full force.

When News Corp Australia visited the “Suicide Squad” set in Toronto in 2015, the 26-year-old “The Legend of Tarzan” actress apologised to mums for “their eight-year-old daughter is putting on fishnets and looking like a hooker.”

For American fans, looking like Harley Quinn has got a whole lot easier with US chain store Hot Topic announcing a Suicide Squad-themed clothing line. Among various items available, a Harley Quinn “Daddy’s Lil Monster” T-shirt and a blue/pink Harley hair dye kit is a hot favourite.

Quinn is “a New York psychiatrist who fell for the Joker while he was in therapy, becoming first his love interest, then his sidekick and a super-villain in her own right,” writes Vanity Fair. She dresses like a naughty clown and is perhaps the “scariest of all circus anomalies.”

“She loves causing mayhem and destruction. She’s incredibly devoted to the Joker. They have a dysfunctional relationship, but she loves him anyway. She used to be a gymnast—that’s her skill set when fighting,” Robbie told Rich Cohen of Vanity Fair.
