Will Smith Says He ‘Never Actually Met’ Jared Leto While Filming ‘Suicide Squad’

“He was all in on The Joker,” the actor says

Don’t ask Will Smith if he got along with Jared Leto on the set on “Suicide Squad,” because he only met The Joker.

“I’ve never actually met Jared Leto,” the actor said during a recent interview on Beats Radio 1. “We worked together for 6 months and we’ve never exchanged a word outside of ‘Action!’ and ‘Cut!’ We’ve never said ‘Hello.'”

Smith isn’t complaining, though.

Leto apparently remained in character as the “Clown Prince of Crime” for the entire production. And Smith, who plays Deadshot, is “looking forward to meeting him.”

“I’ve only ever spoken to him as Deadshot, and him as The Joker,” Smith continued. “I literally have not met him yet. So, the first time I see him will be ‘Hey, Jared. What’s up? How you doing? Nice to meet you.’ He was all in on the Joker.”
