Fans wondering about the chemistry between The Joker and Harley Quinn in “Suicide Squad” got a sneak preview during Sunday’s Oscar ceremony, as Jared Leto and Margot Robbie strolled onstage to present the award for Hair & Makeup.
How did they look together? Good enough that the Internet instantly demanded they become a couple and gave them the celebrity couple name “jargot.”
They were the perfect pair to talk about makeup and prosthetics given the multicolored pigtails Robbie will be rocking as Quinn, and Leto’s pale, tattooed skin as The Joker. (In DC Comics lore, Quinn is The Joker’s psychologist turned partner in crime.)
Leto even slipped in a joke about a merkin. (Google it.) The joke came as Leto noted that hair & makeup artists handle prosthetics, hair, and so much more.
Here’s Robbie as Quinn:
And Leto as The Joker:
“Suicide Squad,” which premieres August 5, 2016, features a team of super villains doing dirty jobs for the government to lessen their sentences for hellacious crimes. Quinn and Joker will find themselves in a love triangle with Deadshot, played by Will Smith.
