Exchange of extravagant gifts in Hollywood is considered common courtesy but Jared Leto’s gifts to his Suicide Squad co-stars were beyond unusual.
Jared Leto's Suicide Squad co-stars have revealed that the actor gifted them live rats and bullets to make up for his absence from the film's initial shooting.
Leto will be seen as the Joker in the superhero film, which also stars Will Smith, Margot Robbie, Joel Kinnaman, Jai Courtney, Cara Delevingne, Viola Davis and Adam Beach.
"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," cast member Adam Beach told eonline.com.
Leto, 43, also sent them a video.
"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 realised that day, this is real," Beach added.
The film is slated to release on August 5, 2016.
