If there's one thing we take for granted about our modern on-screen villains, it's likely that they will - at some point - reveal themselves to be truly villainous. No matter how likable they may be, or how many redeeming features they may have - they will, ultimately, almost certainly prove to be complete and utter bastards (unless we're talking HBO, of course, in which case everyone'll turn out to be a complete and utter bastard).

Thankfully, though, the real-life stars who play our favorite villains tend to have far fewer dastardly traits - and sometimes even go so far as to be incredibly sweet. For instance:

Suicide Squad's Margot Robbie and Jai Courtney Just Did Something Awesome

Y'see, the pair - who've just finished work on Suicide Squad in Toronto - decided that heading to the movie's wrap party was fine and all, but that there was something a little more important for them to do first.

That something? Visiting a little girl's lemonade stand...

That's right: Robbie and Courtney had apparently heard tell of a very particular lemonade stand in Toronto - one ran by a young girl named Na’Ama Uzan.

Y'see, Na'Ama has been selling lemonade from her stand for a year and a half now; all to help raise money for the Foundation for Angelman Syndrome Therapeutics. The reason? Her older brother Nadav suffers from the severe neurological disorder Angelman Syndrome...

Na'Ama hasn't been messing around, though - her stand has so far raised an enormous $64 thousand dollars for the charity. Which, as Robbie pointed out while speaking to CTV, is a far cry from the actress' youthful endeavors:

"I used to do old little stands like this when I was little and I’d just spend the profits on lollies at the corner store so I’m glad she is doing something far more noble with the cause."

It was the nobility of those efforts, it seems, that prompted Robbie and Courtney to come on down to Na'Ama's lemonade stand - seeing as Courtney seems very much taken with her fantastic achievement:

"We heard about Na’Ama’s story and what she was doing for her brother Nadav and I just think it’s so inspiring...It just shows that there’s there is no act too small when you are talking about making a difference."

Which - as well as being an excellent point - is also a pretty clear indication that the real-life Courtney, much like Robbie, is a far cry from his villainous on-screen persona. Which is probably good news for Toronto's banks...

....but the big question?

What do you reckon?
