Jared Leto Sent Used Condoms and Anal Beads to His ‘Suicide Squad’ Co-Stars
Ew, Jared Leto.
The actor is literally going all-out to make sure his portrayal of the Joker is as legitimate as possible. Just when you thought he’d had enough by sending his Suicide Squad cast mates a dead pig and rat earlier this year, we find out his gift-giving didn’t stop there. During an interview with E! News during CinemaCon on Tuesday (Apr. 12, 2016), he revealed that he sent Will Smith, Margot Robbie, and Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje used condoms and anal beads, too.
But, according to him, it was all in good fun — and to further identify with his character. “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.”
Smith, who plays Deadshot, adds that his co-star went full Joker in order to really set the tone. Meanwhile, Robbie, who plays Harley Quinn admits that there were times she did not know what to expect from Leto. “I can’t even begin to tell you the things I got. By that point, I feel like I knew The Joker a bit, so it wasn’t as alarming.”
We can safely assume that the cast of the Suicide Squad will not be opening any more mail — at least for now. Watch Leto’s interview with E! below.
