There’s nothing sour about Suicide Squad co-stars Margot Robbie and Jai Courtney. The two Australian stars made a surprise visit to a charity lemonade stand in Toronto on Sunday (Aug. 23), after Jai heard about five-year-old Na’ama Uzan’s quest to raise money for Angelman Syndrome research. The Toronto tot is selling the sweet summer treat in honour of her brother Nadav, who suffers from the debilitating disease.
“I heard about Na’ama’s story and what she was doing for her brother Nadav, and I think it is so inspiring, and just shows that there is no act too small when you are talking about making a difference,’ the 29-year-old actor told CTV News. Margot added that when she was a child she too had lemonade stands but “I would just spend the profits on lollies at the corner store. I am glad [Na’ama] is doing something far more noble for a cause.”
The duo’s donation joins the impressive $64,000 that Na’ama has already raised to help find a cure for the rare neuro-genetic disorder that affects hundreds of Canadians. Dressed in her very own superhero cape – in lemon yellow, of course – the inspiring youngster was thrilled to host the actors, who just wrapped production on their action-packed film over the weekend.
The Suicide Squad cast, including Cara Delevingne and Joel Kinnaman, celebrated the end of the four-month shoot with a night of bar hopping and revelry. Co-star Jared Leto, who plays the Joker in the DC Comics adaptation, missed out on the party, as he was seen jetting out of Canada last week. They also commemorated the experience by getting matching tattoos courtesy of Margot and fellow cast mate Will Smith.
