Jared Leto is playing the Joker in the upcoming Suicide Squad movie. If you've watched the trailer, you know that he has green hair and acts like a lunatic. Jared took a method approach to the role, which means he behaved like the Joker even when the camera wasn't rolling. That led to him giving his co-stars some pretty disgusting gifts and refusing to break character between takes.

The movie's director David Ayer says Jared freaked him out “big time” and made “the hairs stand up on the back of your neck.” He also packed on the praise for Jared's performance and how life-changing it's going to be for all of us, saying, “You’re going to get taken on a journey with Jared that I don’t know that everyone’s ready for but I think it will be amazing.”

The Internet has of course been quick to roll its eyes at Jared's behavior and Ayer's reaction to it, and it's resulted in quite a few hilarious tweets that I'd like to share with you.

OMG so ~crazy~

Cookie-stealing is as evil as it gets.

Jared Leto probably is Banksy.

Arrest him immediately.

Absolutely chilling.

Dammit Jared, think of the children!

Ya think?

I bet he didn't even have parental supervision.

PSYCHOPATH.

Only an evil person would know that.

Uh oh, we're getting meta up in here.

This one's my favorite, not gonna lie. [updated with the original tweet]
