Suicide Squad is almost a year old, but new stories about Jared Leto’s bizarre behavior as The Joker on the set are still coming out.
In an interview on The Howard Stern Show last week, Ike Barinholtz, who played the prison guard Griggs in Suicide Squad, recalled an awkward day on set with Jared Leto when he groped him and kissed him on the mouth during a scene.
I do this scene with Jared Leto and he’s supposed to be intimidating me. He comes in, he’s the Joker, and he starts squeezing my tits. He’s like [panting and moaning] ‘You’re a big guy’.
This is while we’re filming. Then he f*cking grabs me and kisses me. On the mouth, full kisses me.
I thought, OK, I’m just gonna go with it. But then he’s like, [panting and moaning again] ‘Did someone piss their pants?’ I’m like, now I did because you said I did!
