Actor Jared Leto gives the ladies something to look at on the newest cover of Rolling Stone magazine. This really just made me so happy. Jared is just soo scrumptious!
Anywho, with his new movie Suicide Squad hitting theatres this weekend, Jared is everywhere promoting it. The 44 year old actor opens up about preparing to play the joker and passing on roles to pursue a career in music.
On pursuing music as an actor: “There were so many people that didn’t understand. There were people in this town who thought it was insane. There were films that I decided not to do because I had tiny little tours, and people would just lose their minds. And some of them turned into the biggest movies ever made.”
On playing The Joker: “The Joker is incredibly comfortable with acts of violence. I was watching real violence, consuming that. There’s a lot you can learn from seeing it. Not every act of violence is committed with frenzy, either. I remember learning that. People can be calm. They’ve made their choice and go and do something, and it’s not in a frenzy. It’s methodical and sometimes even hypnotic and deliberate.”
