“Saturday Night Live’s” Jay Pharaoh has his eyes set on Aussie actress Margot Robbie.

During “SNL’s” 40th anniversary red carpet extravaganza on Sunday, Pharaoh told TheWrap he’s dying to make out with the “Focus” star.

The comedian looked into the camera and delivered a personal message: “Margot Robbie, this is Jay Pharaoh. I have a crush on you. I understand you like Will Smith. You’re doing a new movie with him. But I feel like, baby, I could be more than Will Smith.”

Robbie co-stars in the upcoming “Focus” with Smith, coming out on Feb. 27.

“Sweetheart, I got more than 100 voices. Just imagine that,” the “SNL” comedian said. “Come to the show and, when you do, let’s do a make-out scene. Hallelujah.”

Asked by TheWrap’s Tony Maglio whether he had any impressions he was dying to bust out, Pharaoh said he was working on Idris Elba and Leonardo DiCaprio.

“My Leonardo DiCaprio is better than anybody’s out there. I said it. I don’t care,” Pharaoh said.

Before he got into his impersonation of the “Titanic” star, however, Pharaoh changed his mind.

“I can do it, but y’all ain’t ready,” he teased. “But seriously, my Leo is great.”
