We all know that Jared Leto can be considered Cray-Cray in his method acting. Now, we know that he sent bullets and a dead hog to his cast mates previously, but I guessed he sent used condoms to his cast. I don't know what to think at this current time, but that's not all!
He also gave the cast some wonderful anal beads! He said all this during an interview with EW and I honestly don't know what what to think, here are some things that his cast said to him about his gifts (?):
“I did a lot of things to create a dynamic, to create an element of surprise, of spontaneity, and to really break down any kind of walls that may be there,” Leto said. “The Joker is somebody who doesn’t really respect things like personal space or boundaries.”
“Jared went full Joker. The rule, generally, is never go full Joker, but he really set the tone. He wasn’t playing with it, he was dead serious. As an actor, he was going in… he really jarred [us],” Smith said.
Viola Davis- “He had a henchman who would come into the rehearsal room, and the henchman came in with a dead pig and plopped it on the table, and then he walked out,” she said. “And that was our introduction into Jared Leto.”
The actor playing Killer Croc, Akinnuoye-Agbaje, also said the gifts “weren’t right,” but not for the reasons you might expect. “If you’re going to have that kind of party, at least invite The Croc. Don’t send me your dirty leftovers, that just isn’t right… You see why he ain’t part of The Squad, right? That’s just downright selfish.”
Robbie, who appears in Suicide Squad as Harley Quinn, added: “I can’t even begin to tell you the things I got [from Jared]. By that point, I feel like I knew The Joker a bit, so it wasn’t as alarming, but yeah, there were many instances where I didn’t know what to expect from Jared.”
WHAT SHOULD WE THINK OF THIS?
I honestly do not know if this is cool, or just plain f*cked up? I am excited for Suicide Squad of course, but this seems too far to go even for an actor acting like The Joker. Some people will love this and say it shows commitment, others will say that he's ruining the character. Personally, I just want the movie to be awesome and that's what matters. Leto has done things on other sets that would make you go -- what, as well!
He sent used condoms and anal beads to his cast mates -- as long as he delivers in Suicide Squad, then I think we can look past this super-weird thing!
