Margot Robbie has revealed the hilarious reason why she keeps returning to the role of Harley Quinn.

There are few actors out there who are practically synonymous with their comic book roles. There’s Robert Downey Jr. and Iron Man, J.K. Simmons with J. Jonah Jameson, and, to a certain degree, Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn. Suicide Squad may not have been the critical success that the fans and Warner Bros. were hoping for, but one thing was certain: Robbie was born to play Quinn. Her performance was applauded far and wide, with a solo film focusing on her quickly commissioned. The Australian actress nailed the eccentricities and physical demeanor of the borderline psychopathic character, while also juggling the intricate emotional beats that were thrown at her.

Margot Robbie has also seen considerable – if not more – success outside of Harley Quinn through films like I, Tonya, Once Upon A Time In Hollywood, and Bombshell, so why is it that the Oscar-nominated star keeps on returning to the deranged DC Comics character? In an interview with British Vogue, Robbie revealed that she’s simply too attached to the character to move on.

“I’m painted white and I’ve got a wig on, got a crazy costume on and this Brooklyn accent. Harley sticks around. Even on a weekend when I’m out with friends, sometimes she pops up and I’ll be like, ‘Right then, I’m gonna put a lid on that.’”

You can check out the synopsis for Margot Robbie’s The Suicide Squad below:

Welcome to hell—a.k.a. Belle Reve, the prison with the highest mortality rate in the US of A. Where the worst Super-Villains are kept and where they will do anything to get out—even join the super-secret, super-shady Task Force X. Today’s do-or-die assignment? Assemble a collection of cons, including Bloodsport, Peacemaker, Captain Boomerang, Ratcatcher 2, Savant, King Shark, Blackguard, Javelin and everyone’s favorite psycho, Harley Quinn. Then arm them heavily and drop them (literally) on the remote, enemy-infused island of Corto Maltese. Trekking through a jungle teeming with militant adversaries and guerrilla forces at every turn, the Squad is on a search-and-destroy mission, with only Colonel Rick Flag on the ground to make them behave…and Amanda Waller’s government techies in their ears, tracking their every movement. And as always, one wrong move and they’re dead (whether at the hands of their opponents, a teammate, or Waller herself). If anyone’s laying down bets, the smart money is against them—all of them.

Written and directed by James Gunn, The Suicide Squad stars David Dastmalchian, John Cena, Jai Courtney, Joaquín Cosío, Nathan Fillion, Joel Kinnaman, Mayling Ng, Flula Borg, Sean Gunn, Juan Diego Botto, Storm Reid, Pete Davidson, Taika Waititi, Alice Braga, Steve Agee, Tinashe Kajese, Daniela Melchior, Peter Capaldi, Julio Ruiz, Jennifer Holland, Viola Davis, Idris Elba, Margot Robbie, and Michael Rooker.
