Jared Leto Goes All Joker And Sends Anal Beads and Used Sex Toys To Co-Stars!
The "Joker" scared his "Suicide Squad" co-stars!
Once Jared Leto accepted the part, he went "all Joker" on his cast and crew mates, to the point where he scared some of them! Of course they weren't really scared, just scared to the point that he had become the Joker!
Besides some of the more bizarre things, Jared Leto sent his co-stars used sex toys, condoms, and anal beads. His interpretation was that the Joker knows no bounds and respects no one's personal space, and by sending sex toys, he was invading that very personal space.
Yeah, I would think that sending me your used anal beads would be a violation of my personal space! I think his joke would have been just as funny/scary/offensive if he had sent NEW toys — at least they could use the anal beads! Buy a new, never used set of anal beads here.
According to Will Smith, once Jared Leto started, he felt that 100% was the only way to play the Joker, and he intended to get every second of it rolling — even when the cameras weren't.
Jared [Leto] 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],”
Other stars on the movie said that they never knew what to expect. At one point, one of Jared's henchmen brought a head into the room and plopped it on the table, and without breaking character, walked out without a word. One of the cast even received a LIVE RAT from Jared!
Even though Jared is the one who started all these psychological games, he admitted that this was one of the hardest things he has attempted:
There was definitely a period of…detachment. I took a pretty deep dive. But this was a unique opportunity and I couldn’t imagine doing it another way. It was fun, playing those psychological games. But at the same time it was very painful, like giving birth out of my prick hole.
This is no JOKER I have ever seen! Thanks Jared Leto for scaring the shit out of all of us!
