Margot Robbie’s Very Unexpected Suicide Squad Workout

High intensity? Nope. Calorie cutting? No siree. Take note, ladies.

UPDATE: While Cara was getting a ghoul-over for her role in Suicide Squad, co-star Margot Robbie was getting a different type of makeover.

Let us break it down for you. Robbie plays supervillain Harley Quinn, which means she spends near on the whole time on set in a pair of miniscule shorts. To prepare then, Margot followed a very, very strict health and fitness regime.

Personal trainer Andie Hecker says the star worked out for an eye-watering two – three hours a day in the final two weeks before filming, but it wasn’t high intensity she went for. Hecker put her on a Pilates-based programme including ballet jumps, swimming and skipping.

As for her diet, Hecker says Margot didn’t restrict calories at all (yes, really), in order to keep her “badass curves” for the role.

Mission complete.

28/10/15: As one of the most photographed models in the world, we’re used to seeing Cara Delevingne endlessly switching styles but the revelation of her look for upcoming movie, Suicide Squad, takes her transformation to a whole new level.

Yep, be prepared, Cara’s character is seriously creepy. The Burberry model plays Enchantress, mysterious, powerful and pretty terrifying. Gracing the cover of Empire Magazine this month we got our first glimpse of Cara’s character in all it’s glory, and boy, it isn’t pretty.

Showing off her model bod and flashing the flesh in only a dark bra and shrouded in chains, Cara appears dark and goulish covered in ancient witchcraft and magic symbols- eeek.

We’re excited about the star-studded anti-hero film for so many reasons, but the main one being we’ll get to see Cara kick ass in one of her first major Hollywood action roles, obvs.

Cara takes on the persona of June Moone in the movie – a woman who finds herself fused with the ancient entirity known as Entrantress. The model said of her character  ‘She’s an ancient sorceress, a feral being. She’s been trapped for so long and now she’s finally let out.’ Well judging by the look of her we’d rather she’d stayed in, thanks!

The first trailer for new DC Comics film Suicide Squad was released back in July. And along with the rest of the world, we thought it looked pretty IMMENSE.

The 22-year-old admits that her character left a slightly scary lasting impression on her, that actually spilled over into her own life….

‘I was like, “Honestly, if I go outside and punch people, you’ve got to come get me out of jail because I am so furious…” [the director] sparked a f**king fury in me,’ she told TIME magazine. Eek!

If you haven’t seen the trailer yet, you really need to.

It emerged under pretty murky circumstances – it was premiered exclusively to the crowds at Comic-Con, but after dodgy footage was releaed on the Internet, Warner Bros decided to release it to the public ahead-of-schedule. If rather reluctantly…

Director David Ayer tweeted: ‘Shame our sneak peek Hall H footage was leaked. #notcool it’s unfair to the fans who waited in line. And not how I intended folks to see it.’

But despite not even being up for 24 hours, it’s already racked up nearly 9 million YouTube views. Wow.

The upcoming anti-hero film has had huge hype surrounding it, and for good reason. It boasts a stellar A-list cast, featuring the likes of Will Smith, Margot Robbie, Cara Delevingne and, brilliantly, Jared Leto doing a terrifying job playing The Joker (chills), and tells the tale of criminals working together for the greater good.

While he’s not in the trailer, we’ve also heard rumours that Jesse Eisenberg will be portraying Lex Luther. Ooh.

And the trailer is super creepy.

With a haunting soundtrack playing in the background, the trailer shows Robbie as Harley Quinn (aka. The Joker’s right-hand gal), looking nothing like her usual glamorous self thanks to her crazy pink and blue hair and ghoulish clown make-up. And then there’s Cara as The Enchantress, all wet hair and pained expression, looking like something dragged straight out of a horror movie.

Will Smith plays Deadshot, and experienced marksman and famously one of Batman’s enemies, whilst Leto does a cracking job of terrifying the lights out of everyone with his eerie Joker impression.

‘Oh, I’m not gonna kill you. I’m just gonna hurt you really, really badly’, he closes the trailer with.

Suicide Squad isn’t out until August 2016, but we have a feeling it’s going to be well worth the wait.
