Jared Leto was pretty much into his character of the “Suicide Squad” The Joker that even his co-stars were not able to meet him as himself.

In a report by The Wrap, Will Smith, who stars alongside Jared Leto as Deadshot in David Ayers “Suicide Squad,” revealed that he has never met the actor. Say what?

Will Smith said on a recent interview with Beats Radio 1 that he’s never met Jared Leto in actuality instead he was “all in on The Joker.” He furthered on that they have been working together on “Suicide Squad” for 6 months and never got to say “Hello” with one another outside of their scenes together.

Apparently, Jared Leto has been so immersed with his “Suicide Squad” The Joker. For the duration of the entire production he has remained as the “Clown Prince of Crime,” his character.

Will Smith continued that the only conversation they had was him as Deadshot and Jared Leto as “Suicide Squad” The Joker. If he sees him for the first time, Smith said he’ll say, “Hey, Jared. What’s up? How you doing? Nice to meet you.”

It’s a little odd for Jared Leto to be so immersed with his character as “Suicide Squad” The Joker but hey, an actor’s got to do what it takes to make his role impressive. Den Of Geek has learned that he has already given odd gifts to the other cast members of the DC movie.

In addition, Cinemablend revealed that Jared Leto’s present to co-star Margot Robbie who plays Harley Quinn was a rat and for Will Smith, bullets. The Oscar-winning actor reportedly spoke to renowned comic book writer, Grant Morrison, on how to better slay the role of “Suicide Squad” The Joker. Now, fans have to wait for the movie's showing to see how Jared Leto portrayed his role and how different it will be to the late Heath Ledger's acclaimed performance in "The Dark Knight."

"Suicide Squad" will hit theaters on August 2016.
