We've seen Jared Leto in full make-up, hair, and fake neck tattoos as the Joker from the upcoming supervillain movie, Suicide Squad, and we have some idea of what he'll sound like, too. But Leto isn't just about appearances—he's fully committed to his character. So committed, in fact, that he mailed his all of co-stars gifts, not as himself, but as the Joker—which is how his on-screen love interest Margot Robbie ended up with a love letter and a live rat. 

Apparently, Leto couldn't be on set for a few days, and wanted to remind his colleagues of his presence. E! has the details on how exactly he did that:


Too real. It's unclear if Leto's antics will get worse as shooting continues. We'll have to wait and see.
