Just remember: only six weeks until Suicide Squad is finally released and we can say goodbye to the endless reminders that Jared Leto is the most-committed method actor in the history of method acting. But until then, here’s another story about how Jared Leto’s crazy made people nervous on the set of Suicide Squad.
We already know that Jared Leto’s version of The Joker sounds like what you’d get if Mrs. Claus slipped some bath salts in Santa’s hot cocoa; he was constantly giving the cast fucked up presents, like a live rat, a dead pig, and used condoms. It really freaked his co-stars out including Viola Davis, who along with Will Smith, received a box of bullets from Jared. She admitted to E! News that “The Joker’s” gift scared her a bit and she almost pulled out pepper spray when meeting him the first time.
“It was a little worrisome. It made you a little bit nervous and I’m pretty tough. You know I got into a few fights when I was growing up…but it scared me a little bit. Before that I was only introduced to The Joker…and I almost had my pepper spray out. You know, ‘You remember that bullet you sent me?'”
In case you’re not familiar, The Joker became The Joker by falling into a vat of chemicals. So I bet Jared is still so pissed off that Viola didn’t spray a load in his face. “How rude. I had been begging the producers to administer real chemical burns for weeks. Like, was I not clear enough with the used condoms? I take this shit very seriously.”
Here’s Jared arriving at a Gucci show in Milan on Monday. Jared stopped filming Suicide Squad months ago, but apparently that hasn’t stopped him from once again dressing like Harley Quinn’s douchey half-brother, Ducati Quinn.
