Margot Robbie found locking lips with Jared Leto in 'Suicide Squad' "so messy" because of all the make-up they both wore
Margot Robbie's kissing scenes with Jared Leto were "so messy".
The 26-year-old actress' portrays super villain and former psychiatrist Harley Quinn in 'Suicide Squad' opposite the 44-year-old actor as her love interest the Joker and she found the fact they both had intricate make-up on problematic when it came to getting up close and personal.
She told People magazine: "It is so messy. I've done kissing scenes where I have lipstick on and that's a nightmare but to have two of you having the lipstick on, it's terror."
According to the blonde beauty, the pair had to undergo 10-minute make-up touch ups between every take as a result.
Jared stayed in character throughout filming the ensemble blockbuster and despite his intimidating appearance, Margot insisted she was never afraid of kissing him as she quickly became "desensitised" to the shock.
She said: "Once you get over the initial shock of meeting Mr. J, you kind of become desensitised to it I guess so it seemed normal after a while."
Margot previously admitted she was more afraid of Jared out of his costume than in full make-up.
She said: "At first it was kind of confronting [to be up so close] but now I'm so used to it, I think if I ever saw him out of make-up now I would be really confused.
"Actually, I saw him out of make-up once and I was actually petrified of him. I was too scared to go up and didn't know who that person was, and when he got back into his makeup I was far more comfortable."
The pair's co-star, Will Smith, recently praised their on-screen chemistry.
He said: "There is something absolutely magnetic about that relationship.
"It's this weird superhero dysfunctional relationship... and it's sexy."
