Jared Leto Is Trying to Gain Tons of Weight For 'Suicide Squad'

Jared Leto swings back his long hair on the cover of Billboard magazine’s latest issue, out on newsstands on Friday (February 20)!

In the feature, the 43-year-old actor chatted about prepping for his upcoming film Suicide Squad, where he will play the Joker.

“Do you mind if I eat a little? I’m trying to gain a lot of weight. It means I have to eat every couple of hours — and I’m terrible at eating a lot,” Jared shared.

He added, “The opportunity to take on this nearly Shakespearean character — that’s what graphic novels and comic books are becoming, right? [He's] this beautiful disaster of a character — what a big challenge.”
