Jared Leto Might Have Gone a Little Crazy to Be the Joker, But Luckily He Wasn’t Crazy Enough to Personally Send Viola Davis a Weird Gift

Generous method-maniac Jared Leto has generated no dearth of headlines with his gross Suicide Squad gifts: Take Margot Robbie’s rat, for example, and then recall the instances of the pig carcass and the sticky Playboy mags. Though the guy just wants everyone to know his character doesn’t “respect boundaries,” it’s a good thing the actor never honored Viola Davis, who plays Amanda Waller, with her own personalized present. “I did not receive any personally or else I would have got my husband who was called the headache ball back in the day when he played football,” Davis told E!, ahead of a Sunday night Tribeca Film Fest premiere. “I would have [told Julius Tennon], ‘Take care of the Joker.’”

The actress evidently had enough when one of Leto’s henchmen dropped that pig off for the whole cast. She recalled back in February: “I [was] terrified, just as a person, thinking, Is he crazy? But the second part was, Oh, shit, I gotta have my shit together. You talk about commitment.” Is there a semblance of respect and admiration in there? Sure, but still, tread lightly during reshoots, Leto.
