Margot Robbie, actress and all-around gorgeous human being, is a big fan of the Halloween season. However, you probably won’t find her voluntarily dressing up in revealing costumes for the holiday — she claims to have way more fun dressing up as creepy and bizarre characters.
In a recent interview with W Magazine, Robbie talked about her Halloween proclivities, and how she tends to shy away from the more revealing costumes — despite the fact that her scantily-clad Suicide Squad character was one of the most popular costumes last year.
“Every Halloween I dress as a guy character because they are always the most fun. From day one, I never got the Halloween slutty costumes,” Robbie says.
Robbie recalls her first Halloween in the US, and how she was surprised that no one was particularly concerned about keeping warm on the chilly New York evening.
“I went out as Jason from Friday the 13th, with my jumpsuit and machete. It was my first Halloween in America. I was in New York that year, and it was snowing. I thought, surely, everybody is going to cover up. But every other woman was in lingerie.”
And if you think she hasn’t gone all out when dressing up as grungy characters, think again — she actually got cornrows one year.
“My favorite costume, though, was James Franco’s character in Spring Breakers. I did my hair in cornrows, put on a Hawaiian shirt and a gold grill on my teeth. I nailed it!”
Robbie also adds that she’s noticed a handful of men who have decided to dress up as Harley Quinn, which she thinks is fantastic.
“I’ve always dressed up as guy characters, so to think that guys are now trying to take on Harley because she’s the coolest and the craziest — that’s pretty awesome. So many guys dressed up as her, which is my favorite thing.”
While I whole-heartedly support Margot Robbie dressing up as a man to her heart’s content, perhaps this is indicative of the world needing more dynamic female characters who aren’t clad in booty shorts?
Just a thought.
