It wasn"t so long ago when Jared Leto had his turn at playing the Joker, having scored the role in David Ayer"s Suicide Squad in 2016.

This seems to lớn refer khổng lồ the rumors that the other actors weren"t happy with Leto"s antics on the mix with his method acting for the Joker going a bit too far.

"Any of the very few gifts that were ever given were given with a spirit of fun and adventure và received with laughter, fun, và adventure. It"s all filmed! They filmed it all! People were dying. We were just having a goof. The only gifts I ever gave Margot were cupcakes. I think I gave her a mouse, và some of the other guys got gifts that you"d get as a joke at a party."

Jared Leto also detailed what it felt lượt thích working on Suicide Squad, as he had a "small role" that made him feel like a "quiet nerd in the corner" ostracized from the rest of the group. Perhaps his gag gifts were just meant to tóm tắt some laughs with the cast to better fit in. The actor also dismisses the criticisms he"s received online from people who weren"t there & has some harsh words for anyone who believes that he crossed the line.

"I"m playing a guy called the Joker, it"s okay lớn play some jokes. Nothing ever crossed any lines, & it"s not up khổng lồ other people on the internet to create those lines... I"m an artist at the kết thúc of the day. If I vày something risky và you don"t like it, basically, you can kiss my ass."

Back in 2015, Margot Robbie confirmed lớn Elle that Jared Leto did gift her with a rat while filming Suicide Squad, but that it wasn"t dead, as was the rumor.

"Jared has gone full Joker," Smith said. "He went full Joker. And the rule, generally, is never go full Joker, but he went all in. He really phối the tone. He wasn"t playing with it. He was dead serious. He was 100% going into this character, và he really jarred the rest of us."

Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, who played Killer Croc in the movie, said he received some "sticky Playboy magazines" from the actor.

Jared Leto is now backtracking on comments he made in the past about some of the wild gifts he gave to lớn the Suicide Squad cast members.


The "Jared Leto Suicide Squad cast gifts" fiasco is a story that's been talked about heavily since the original rumor was started. While he did originally say on a red carpet that he gave some of his cast members gifts that are quite rude or at the very least surprising, Leto is now saying that those comments were purely just for fun.

Original reports stated that, as he was deep into his role as the Joker, Leto gifted the rest of the Suicide Squad cast with some objectively inappropriate gifts. These include used condoms, anal beads, "sticky" Playboy magazines, và even a mouse given lớn his on-screen Harley Quinn, Margot Robbie.

While he's not denying the rodent present, he is now disputing some of the more extreme claims. He confirms to lớn Entertainment Weekly that these comments, which he did say himself, were purely made "in jest". When Leto made these original claims, it's important to chú ý that his co-star did not dispute them. Robbie confirmed that he had given her a mouse, even saying that she kept it. Will Smith made several comments about how deep Leto was into his role, saying that he went "full Joker" and that they never knew what lớn expect from him. Co-star Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje was the one to lớn bring up the Playboy magazines in the first place. Now that Leto is denying many of these gifts, it seems he's implying that all of his co-workers were "in on the joke".


This isn't the first time he's addressed these comments, và that could be in part because the public didn't react very well to them when they were originally said. Fans did give the actor some backlash, especially when it came lớn the more naughty seeming gifts. Sending someone a used condom as a gift is not only something most people would just think is gross, but it could also be deemed sexual harassment due lớn the nature of the gift. Leto is known for his method acting, however, and that act would not be out of character for the Joker.

Warner Bros. Has not made any comments confirming or denying Leto's new claims. He does, however, seem very adamant in his truth, saying that any of the "few" gifts given were done so "with a spirit of laughter, fun, and adventure." He also says that their reception was also in the spirit of fun và that all of these events are filmed.
