Kiss and Tell

The Suicide Squad star said she actually pushed for the smooch to happen because she wanted to get her chance to kiss her heart throb.

"That wasn't in the script. But I thought, 'When else am I gonna get the chance to kiss Brad Pitt? I'm just gonna go for it'. I said, 'Damien, I think Nellie would just go up and kiss Jack.' And Damien was like, 'Well, she could wait, hold on. You just wanna kiss Brad Pitt.' And I was like, 'Oh, so sue me. This opportunity might never come up again.' And he was like, 'it does work for the character,' and I was like, 'I think so.' He was like, 'No, do it again. That really works.' I was like, 'Oh, great!'" the 32-year-old told E! News.
