Yes, Margot Robbie’s pet rat is named Rat Rat. Originally a gift, Margot Robbie was surprised to receive the unique gift from Jared Leto during the filming of Suicide Squad. The two were casted as an onstage couple in the DC series as Joker and Harley Quinn. Rat Rat’s life quickly escalated to a life of luxury as he began feasting on all organic berries from Whole Foods to living in a small rat mansion, but that isn’t the end of the tale for the rat wonder. Margot Robbie was unable to continue taking care of Rat Rat once her landlord had discovered the critter and Robbie was forced to give him up to film director Guillermo del Toro.
