Jared Leto Sent His Suicide Squad Co-Stars A Dead Hog And A Live Rat, How Sweet
Ugh, method actors. Is there anything worse? Survey says no.
Jared Leto used preparation for his role as the Joker in Suicide Squad as an excuse to send his co-stars gifts that would probably get him arrested were he anyone else. Those gifts included a live rat, a dead hog, bullets, and a video message in character as the Joker.
Adam Beach, who plays Slipnot, told E! News about the gifts earlier this week. Apparently Jared sent the gifts because he wasn’t around during preparation for the film, Aww, how thoughtful.
“He sent [Margot Robbie] a nice love letter with a black box with a rat in it—a live rat. It was beautiful. Then he sent bullets to Will [Smith] with a letter.”
Ah yes, a box with a rat in it. So “beautiful.” Exactly what I want to find when I open a gift from my professional work colleague. I will say at least Will’s bullets weren’t given to him fired from a gun, which probably would have been even more authentic.
In addition to the dead hog he sent, Jared shared his apologies for not being there with the other actors:
“Basically, what he said was, ‘Guys, I can’t be there but I want you to know I’m doing my work as hard as you guys.’ The video he showed is in character. It blew our minds away. Then we realized that day, this is real.”
Well, what do you expect from a guy who received a severed ear in the mail from a fan and decided to wear it around his neck? I guess I’m not cut out for Hollywood, because I would not be reacting as well as these people supposedly did. This is what it would look like:
Go ahead and tell me I’m “not an actor” and therefore I “just don’t understand” and I can’t see how “genius” or “talented” or “dedicated” Jared Leto is. I really don’t give a live rat in a black box’s ass.
