In an interview with CNBC's Squawk Box, Leto didn't just practice his acting on set but he stayed in character off set. Leto tells CNBC that he tried out different versions of his Joker laugh around complete strangers in NYC and Toronto, testing which laughs would effectively get under people's skin.
Here's what Leto says:
“I worked on the laugh walking around the streets of New York and Toronto, and I kinda would walk around the streets and see what laugh would get under people’s skin. You know when you hear someone laugh at a restaurant? It’s a little jarring. I tried them out. And I kind of got to a place where I would laugh and people are always turning around like, ‘Who is this creepy guy behind me?'”
