Margot Robbie: ‘Sexy Halloween costumes are boring’


Actress Margot Robbie has made it a tradition to dress up as the opposite sex for Halloween, because it’s more fun to be a guy than a sexy maid.

The Wolf of Wall Street star insists revealing trick-or-treat costumes are simply too uncomfortable for her and she shivers at the sight of women wearing skimpy outfits on 31 October, because many of them are freezing as the temperatures drop.

“Every Halloween I dress as a guy character because they are always the most fun,” she told W magazine. “From day one, I never got the Halloween slutty costumes.

“I went out as (slasher murderer) Jason from Friday the 13th (once), with my jumpsuit and machete. 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.”

If she were forced to choose her favorite costume ever, Margot has a clear winner – James Franco’s dodgy drug dealer character Alien in Spring Breakers: “I did my hair in cornrows, put on a Hawaiian shirt and a gold grille on my teeth,” she chuckled. “I nailed it!”

Talking of nailing it, the Australian beauty made a name for herself as zany D.C. Comics villain Harley Quinn in last year’s (16) box office blockbuster Suicide Squad, and she is pleased to see that men are also switching genders at Halloween to dress up as her character.

“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,” she gushed.
