Margot Robbie’s electrifying portrayal as Harley Quinn in Birds of Prey and the Suicide Squad captivated millions of fans cementing her place among the most versatile actresses in show business. But the baton is now being passed to musical powerhouse Lady Gaga in the upcoming film Joker: Folie à Deux. However, Robbie is not willing to dish out acting tips to her successor as would have expected her to do so. Gracing the same at the Golden Globes this year, she said how she wants to be rather surprised by Gaga’s portrayal of Quinn instead of sharing her secrets.

“I almost don’t want to know so I can save it for a surprise when I see the movie,” she added. The actress also shed light on how she is confident that Lady Gaga will nail the same. Robbie dressed up as the Superstar-Barbie from 1977 in her pink Armani ensemble. The two-time Oscar-nominated star has previously talked about another female star taking over this iconic role to Variety.
