Suicide Squad actress Margot Robbie has been out promoting the DC Comics film adaptation, but one interview skewed off topic and ended up with Robbie describing her all time favorite sex scene. While we all have our own favorite sex scenes, and they certainly appeal to our own tastes, fans of the Suicide Squad actress certainly only think of one thing when the words Margot Robbie and sex scene are used in the same sentence: The Wolf on Wall Street (2013). While that scene (or scenes) between Margot and Leonardo DiCaprio may stir up a few raw emotions for some of us, it’s not Ms. Robbie’s favorite. For that, we’ll have to go back a few years.
And The Winner Is…
True Romance. Yes, the 1993 film starring Christian Slater (Heathers) and Patricia Arquette (Stigmata) in which a cocaine theft goes bad for Clarence and his ex-hooker wife Alabama. The crime drama/action film, directed by Tony Scott and written by Quentin Tarantino would hardly be considered raunchy enough for even softcore porn enthusiasts, particularly with so much violence and gun play, but Tarantino’s special brand of action does leave room for one special scene.
In the scene referred to by Ms. Robbie, Clarence, played by Slater, is discussing business with a friend in a roadside phone booth, when his new bride, Alabama (Arquette), joins him. The two newlyweds end up leaving the friend hanging on the other end of the line (literally), as passion overtakes them in the cramped, glass box. Clarence uses a stack of phone books, which miraculously haven’t been stolen, to bring himself up to Alabama’s level, as she sits up on the shelf. It’s a quick, frantic scene and little is shown in the way of nudity or sex, so one can only wonder what exactly Margot likes about it.
Suicide Squad Actress Margot Robbie Describes Her Harley Quinn For Fans
To hear, or read about, Margot Robbie talking about her Suicide Squad alter ego, Harley Quinn, one can appreciate just how much the actress idolizes the character.
“Harley is creepy, violent, crazy–all of the things that I aspire to be,” she said. “It’s the fun of living vicariously through someone who is doing things that I would never do in real life.”
She may never act on any murderous impulses or participate in a citywide crime spree (that we know of), but perhaps Ms. Robbie has found other ways of incorporating Harley Quinn’s traits into her own personality.
Margot says she was happy to learn that she would again be sharing the screen with Will Smith. The two had worked together in Focus (2015) and Ms. Robbie said that she had enjoyed the experience so much that she had texted him, urging him to accept the Suicide Squad role, as soon as she heard he was being considered for the film.
“He obviously signed on for his own reasons, but I was so incredibly happy that we got to do Round Two. He’s awesome on set and awesome off set. He’s just a really, really good person.”
There has been much talk of the dark nature of Suicide Squad from as far back as the release of the first trailer, raising concerns that the film could possibly get an R rating. Producer Charles Roven wants to assure fans that the intention is to keep the film consisted with the other PG-13 rated DC Comics films, but he added that he couldn’t guarantee it would stay that way.
“We’re not dealing in absolutes, because while this is business, it’s also a creative endeavor. [But] our plan right now is to make all these films PG-13.”
Suicide Squad, which was directed by David Ayer, will hit theaters on August 5.
