Jared Leto debunks hilarious coat meme
Jared Leto is a rockstar, Academy Award-winner, the Joker, and now — a meme killer.
Wednesday’s Suicide Squad premiere in London was packed with celebrities, but the real star may have been Jared Leto’s jacket — a unique, lime-green Gucci coat he paired with pink pants.
After the internet posted a string of memes poking fun at his ensemble, Leto is seeking to set the record straight about a particular photo, which shows him at a fashion show, his expression one of utter glee as a model wearing the same Gucci coat walks the runway.
“The thing about the photo is — I’m going to be honest with you — I was actually making a face at someone across the runway,” he told Vanity Fair. “I have that feeling with most things [Gucci] makes because they make such beautiful things. But I was actually goofing off with a friend, and you can’t actually tell from the picture.” He also added, “Sorry to ruin your meme. Perception versus reality.”
Suicide Squad, which also stars Will Smith, Margot Robbie, Viola Davis, and Joel Kinnaman, opens Friday.
