Jared Leto's weird gifts

Jared Leto's weird gifts

Jared Leto sent a number of weird gifts to his 'Suicide Squad' co-stars.

The Oscar winning actor threw himself into the role of The Joker and "did a lot of things to create a dynamic to create an element of surprise" including sending them used condoms and anal beads.

He told E! News: "I did a lot of things to create a dynamic to create an element of surprise, a spontaneity and to really break down any kind of walls that may be there. The Joker is somebody who doesn't really respect things like personal space or boundaries."

Co-star Margot Robbie said: "I got so many weird things. I can't even begin to tell you the weird things I got," while Will Smith added: "He went full Joker. He really set the tone. He wasn't playing with it. He was dead serious as an actor. He was going in and he was 100 per cent going into this character."

But Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, who received "sticky Playboy magazines" from Jared, claimed the gross gifts, including a dead pig, helped the cast to bond.

He explained: "That was a good gift because it had the effect of unifying us as a group because then it became us against him. We sent the messenger back with the dead pig and our own personalised message. It got the ball rolling."
