As someone, who has done varied roles in his long career, Jared Leto is often considered one of Hollywood’s most talented actors. With a host of memorable roles in his kitty, Leto dares to take up characters that are challenging and inimitable. In a recent interview, the actor spoke about some of his most notable roles in films such as ‘Dallas Buyers Club’, ‘Fight Club’, ‘Requiem for a Dream’, ‘Blade Runner 2049’ and ‘Suicide Squad’.
In ‘Suicide Squad’, which also starred Margot Robbie, Leto played the iconic character of Joker. The film was released almost five years ago and had been a huge box office success. Talking about playing the Joker, Leto said that he was extremely happy about getting an opportunity to play the character that had been discussed so much over the years. He added that he took up the role as a challenge given that it had already been played by a number of actors before him.
Apart from that, Leto also spoke about a rumour that had been swirling around for years – that he gave his co-star, Margot, a dead rat while he was preparing for his role in the film. The actor said that he never gave Margot a dead rat as had been reported and wondered how such a rumour even came about.
