“The most unpleasant thing I have ever done”: Margot Robbie Hated Filming 1 Suicide Squad Scene She Regards as the Worst in Her Entire Career

It has been quite some time since Suicide Squad hit theatres. The sun has set on the DCEU’s future. It is James Gunn who now holds the mantle of ushering in a new era for the DC Cinematic Universe, starting in 2025 with Superman: Legacy. 

Yet that doesn’t mean that the franchise was without its high points.It had its moments. And the Margot Robbie starrer was no different, with the I, Tonya star being involved in many of them. She became a fan favorite with her performance as Harley Quinn in the Suicide Squad. But the About Time star had a hard time coming to grips with one of the scenes in the film – something which would qualify as the most unpleasant thing she had ever done.

When Suicide Squad hit the theatres in 2016, fans were confused about how to rate it. While critics did not hold back in criticizing the film, fans were largely divided. Some thought the movie was an unsuccessful attempt to recreate the band of outlaws. Some thought it was a fun watch. And this was in no small part due to Margot Robbie’s performance.

The Wolf of Wall Street star played the diabolical and psychotic, Harley Quinn, a role that seemed to be tailor-made for her. Amongst a list of big names including the likes of Will Smith, Jared Leto, and Viola Davis, Robbie was the stand-out performer.

What was the most unpleasant thing Margot Robbie had to do in Suicide Squad?

Margot Robbie went on to make the role of Harley Quinn her very own. She owned it all – the gags, the costumes, the bat swinging. No wonder the Barbie star had to put in a lot of effort behind the sets, and compromise on numerous aspects. In an interview with The Washington Post in 2016, she opened up about her experience of shooting the David Ayer film.

In the interview, she revealed that there was one moment when she hated being a part of it. When asked what was the most difficult scene for her, she said,

“That chemical [scene] was the most unpleasant thing I’ve ever done in my entire life. So that was definitely my least favorite.” (The Washington Post)

Not that it should shock anyone. After all, who would love to fall in a tub full of paint?

The Babylon star was not pleased with how the scene went down. She continued,

“It was like this gluggy paint stuff that was so far in my ears and up my nose, and I was choking on it underwater, and I couldn’t breathe, and I tried to open my eyes, and it would glaze over my eyeballs, and I could only see white. It was horrible.”

Yet none of this changes the fact that the scene remains very crucial for the film, giving fans a window into Quinn’s troubled past. Margot Robbie knew that better than anyone. No wonder she still went ahead with the shoot, though it may given her a lifetime of nightmares.
