The lengths Jared Leto went to while playing the Joker in Suicide Squad have been well documented — bizarre, gross gifts and all — and now we can add taking terrifying selfies to his Method acting methods.
The actor posted a blurry and somewhat terrifying photo to Instagram on Tuesday in full Joker regalia, from the green hair to red lips and tattoos, his mouth open in a wide grin.
Doesn’t it look like he could have been laughing the Joker’s sinister laugh? Take a look below and decide for yourself.
As Leto told EW in this week’s Suicide Squad cover story, playing the iconic DC Comics villain was no laughing matter. “You’re kind of walking upon hallowed ground, and it deserves the very best that you can do,” the Oscar winner said. “It takes over your life and that’s what I needed to do for myself.”
Suicide Squad opens Aug. 5. For more on the film, pick up EW’s latest issue, on newsstands now and also available here.
