Jared Leto says his life changed forever after playing The Joker.
With Suicide Squad only a few days away from opening in theaters, it seems like all of the on-set stories are coming to an end. But, Jared Leto wants you to know that he’s no longer the same after playing such an iconic character.
During a black carpet interview with Screen Rant at the film’s premiere Leto said, “Yeah… [the Joker] changed me forever.” Leto adds, “This is a character that… has absolutely no rules. You can do whatever the hell you want to [and] there is no good or bad take. There is no right or wrong answer. [That’s] really really rare and intoxicating.”
Leto continues by saying, “The character is completely insane [and a] madman with green hair and a great smile. I think the Joker is so much fun. That is what is infectious about [him]… When I got asked to play the joker I didn’t really have a big gregarious laugh personally, so I was a bit terrified. This is a guy who’s laughing, and is laughing in a way that is very unique. So I worked on it, worked on it, worked on it and came up with something that is… very strange, I have to admit.”
I guess when you are so into your character, it can have a long lasting impression and effect on your life.
