If reports are to be believed, Margot Robbie’s Harley Quinn hotpants in “Suicide Squad” were photoshopped to look longer in trailers. However, Robbie said she had no idea if her costume was digitally altered.

“I didn’t know about that…having been there on the day, they were very small but wow, I wonder if they did? That would be extensive Photoshopping to do,” Robbie told Nova 93.7 when she was quizzed on her hotpants mystery.

In another interview, Robbie had revealed that she insisted on wearing such short hotpants as she found them “sparkly” and fun” although in real life she wouldn’t wear them.

“As Margot, no, I don’t like wearing that. I’m eating burgers at lunchtime, and then you go do a scene where you’re hosed down and soaking wet in a white T-shirt, it’s so clingy and you’re self-conscious about it,” Robbie had told The New York Times.

However, even movie bosses felt that Quinn’s hotpants were way too “risqué” for the film’s TV promo spot. Hence, they added extra material to make them look like mini shorts and more “family friendly.” Hardcore Harley fans spotted the more of Robbie’s bottom was at display in the final trailer at San Diego’s Comic Con earlier this month.

The 26-year-old Australian beauty argued that she, as Quinn, wore those pants as Quinn loves wearing such skimpy clothes and not because Robbie wanted guys to look at her bottom. She refused to believe that Quinn’s wardrobe is overly-sexualised.

Director Ayer stated that denim overalls wouldn’t have been appropriate for Quinn although he did reveal that Robbie had insisted she is not wearing hotpants the next time. When asked on the lack of clothing of the female characters in “Suicide Squad,” Ayer said he was inspired by the aesthetics of comic books, writes The Telegraph.
