Good morning! Are you ready to learn about more terrible things Jared Leto did to the Suicide Squad cast? No? Too bad! You clicked this post, which was your choice, and now you have to hear about it. I know, I’m not proud of my part in this either, but I do want to stress that most of the blame lies with you. Anyway. As Leto told E! News, as part of his efforts to “to create an element of surprise, a spontaneity and to really break down any kind of walls that may be there,” he took to sending his co-stars random disgusting little gifts, as if he was the worst grandmother in the world. Yes, yes, you’ve already heard about Margot Robbie’s rat, and the pig carcass, but as Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje told E!, the method actor also sent him “sticky Playboy magazines.” That wasn’t the only semen-themed gift: Leto also revealed that he sent the cast anal beads and a used condom. What’s the protocol there? Is it better to send your co-stars a condom full of your own semen, or someone else’s? Either way, it’s probably an OSHA violation, to be honest.
