Jared Leto Opens Up About Doing Drugs as a Teenager

Jared Leto sports longer hair under a baseball cap on Wednesday afternoon (July 27) in New York City.

In case you didn’t know, the 44-year-old Suicide Squad member goes shirtless on the latest cover of Rolling Stone.

During the interview, he opened up about doing drugs when he was younger.

“My experience with drugs?” Jared told the mag. “I did them, lots of them. A lot of them were really fun. There are just those few that tend to kick you in the ass. I guess at some point, too, there’s a decision: Is this going to be my life? I made a choice to pursue other dreams. I guess that’s just the kind of fucked thing about a lot of drugs: The opportunity cost is too high. Some drugs are incredible, but the risk versus reward is out of line. I just saw too many examples of what not to do.”

Jared Leto Speaks About Heath Ledger's Joker: He Gave a 'Perfect Performance'

Jared Leto is speaking out about taking on the role of The Joker after the late Heath Ledger won an Oscar for his performance in the role years earlier.

“Heath did an impeccable, perfect performance as the Joker. It’s one of the best performances ever in cinema. I had met Heath before. I didn’t know him well, but he was a beautiful person,” the 44-year-old actor told Rolling Stone of the late actor’s role in The Dark Knight. Heath passed away in 2008, just a few months before the film was released. The next year, he won an Oscar for his work in the film.

Jared also spoke about the decision to take on the role, and said he felt it was okay because others had previously played The Joker.

“I think had it only been portrayed by Heath and it was never a comic book, maybe I would have felt that would be inappropriate,” Jared said. “But I thought that given the history, it was OK. The good thing about other people having done this is that you know what direction not to head in.”

Suicide Squad hits theaters on August 6, 2016.

Jared Leto Shows Off His Shirtless Body for 'Rolling Stone'

shows off his ripped shirtless body on the cover of Rolling Stone.

Here’s what the 44-year-old Suicide Squad star had to share with the mag:

On pursuing music as an actor: “There were so many people that didn’t understand. There were people in this town who thought it was insane. There were films that I decided not to do because I had tiny little tours, and people would just lose their minds. And some of them turned into the biggest movies ever made.”

On playing The Joker: “The Joker is incredibly comfortable with acts of violence. I was watching real violence, consuming that. There’s a lot you can learn from seeing it. Not every act of violence is committed with frenzy, either. I remember learning that. People can be calm. They’ve made their choice and go and do something, and it’s not in a frenzy. It’s methodical and sometimes even hypnotic and deliberate.”

Jared Leto Shares New Photo of 'Suicide Squad' Joker

Jared Leto just shared a new photo of himself in full makeup as The Joker for the upcoming film Suicide Squad.

Fans are noting how suave The Joker looks in his full suit, complete with a flower.

This past weekend, Jared appeared at 2016 Comic-Con, and make an appearance on Conan’s show to talk about his character.

“The Joker’s laugh is an iconic thing, so there was a lot of pressure,” Jared told Conan about The Joker’s laugh. “I tried a lot of different laughs out on the streets of New York and Toronto. I had one that I knew wasn’t right. It was kind of like, ‘He-he-he-he.’”
