Margot Robbie Learned The Most Insane Skill For Suicide Squad

You probably saw Margot Robbie in Tarzan, spitting in the bad guys face and being anything but a damsel in distress. That is because Margot does not do anything by halves, something we learnt when we saw her performance in his such as Wolf of Wall Street.

Her most recent film, Suicide Squad, sees her take her bad-ass acting to a whole new level as Harley Quinn.

While many of us know she is an amateur tattoo artist thanks the the film, we don’t know about the other unusual skill she has up her sleeve.

Robbie had her fair share of fight scenes in the film, one of which took place under water.

The actress told The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon that she learned to hold her breath for up to five minutes. She admitted that it was her competitive nature that got her through and made her a little carried away.

“I worked with this amazing free-diver, and he came in and I did four sessions with him. His name’s Kirk. It’s all about lowering your metabolic rate…You kinda, like, meditate underwater,” she said. “It’s what free-divers do, but it’s amazing.”

“I got to five minutes and I was like, ‘You know what? This is above and beyond what I thought I’d get to.’ I’m good, I’m good with five.”

If a film about a female free diver is in the making they have their girl!
