Margot Robbie Explains Harley Quinn's Fighting Style


If you're not a comic book reader, you're likely confused as to why someone like Harley Quinn is part of an elite fighting force alongside a sharpshooter, several low-rent Tom Hardys, and various monsters. Well, as a comic reader, allow me to be the first to say that it's quite the quandary in the comic book world too. However, Margot Robbie is here to let us know how Harley ended up as a part of this monster mash, and what she brings to the table.

In a new interview with Vanity Fair, the Australian native set the record straight on Harley's very particular set of skills saying, "She used to be a gymnast—that’s her skill set when fighting.” So yeah, a psychopathic gymnast... I told you it was a quandary. Try not googling "crazy gymnastics" as well, you'll get some strange results. Bela Karolyi porn and the like. 

She went on to give her character some context, helpfully explaining her relationship to both Jared Leto and the Joker thusly, "She loves causing mayhem and destruction. She’s incredibly devoted to the Joker. They have a dysfunctional relationship, but she loves him anyway." I wonder how much of that was built in to the character and how much resulted in her not being able to establish anything resembling a working relationship with her dipshit co-star? God I hate him...
