Margot Robbie: My age outrages people!

Margot Robbie has a pet rat that was given to her by Suicide Squad co-star Jared Leto.

The Australian actress is 25, but online there has been lots of speculation that the star is lying about her age. It’s a situation that completely bemuses the star.

“People seem outraged that I'm 24,” she told the American edition of Elle in an interview, which took place before her birthday on July 2. “People think I'm a decade older.”

Their surprise might be down to the fact that the blonde beauty is already making a huge name for herself in the film industry, having starred in hits like The Wolf of Wall Street alongside Leonardo DiCaprio and Focus with Will Smith.

Working with some of the hottest men in Hollywood has lead to many rumours starting about her relationship off camera with them. However Margot is actually loved up with boyfriend Tom Ackerley, who she met on the set of World War II drama Suite Française. However she is reluctant to talk about him in interviews as she likes to keep her private life just that.

“He was a third AD [assistant director], he's now working as a second AD, and that's, yeah,” she said.

The other important man in her life is her new pet, a rat called Rat Rat. The rodent was given to her by her Suicide Squad co-star Jared Leto in his character as The Joker. While some on set suggested she get rid of it, Margot was determined to keep the little thing.

“If Harley [her character in Suicide Squad] got something from Joker, she'd probably cherish it,” she smiled, before adding that Rat Rat now dines on organic berries on a daily basis.
