Viola Davis Thought She'd Need to Pepper Spray Jared Leto on 'Suicide Squad' Set

Viola Davis is opening up about Jared Leto on the set of Suicide Squad in this new interview.

Specifically, the award winning actress chatted about the strange gifts Jared gave out. He gave her bullets.

“It was a little worrisome. It made you a little bit nervous and I’m pretty tough. You know I got into a few fights when I was growing up…but it scared me a little bit,” Viola told E! News.

“Before that I was only introduced to The Joker…and I almost had my pepper spray out. You know, ‘You remember that bullet you sent me?’” Viola said, adding that she didn’t actually meet Jared out of character until after filming.

Also pictured inside: Jared out in Milan, Italy on Wednesday (June 22).

FYI: Jared is wearing an Enfants Riches Déprimés shirt.

'Suicide Squad' Gets PG-13 Rating Despite Expected R Rating

Suicide Squad‘s rating has been revealed by the MPAA and it has surprisingly been given a PG-13!

It has been expected and hoped for a long time that the movie would receive an R rating, but it was given a PG-13 for “sequences of violence and action throughout, disturbing behavior, suggestive content and language.”

Suicide Squad, which stars Will Smith, Jared Leto, Margot Robbie, Cara Delevingne, Joel Kinnaman, Jai Courtney, Viola Davis, and more, is about a secret government agency that recruits imprisoned supervillains to execute dangerous black ops missions in exchange for clemency.

Kerry Washington, Viola Davis, & Ellen Pompeo Endorse Hillary Clinton in New Video!

Kerry Washington, Viola Davis, and Ellen Pompeo are speaking out in support of presidential candidate Hillary Clinton in this new video that aired on ABC.

The three ladies star on producer Shonda Rhimes‘ TGIT shows and Scandal‘s Tony Goldwyn directed the clip.

“Every day I wake up and play a brilliant, complex, overqualified, get-it-done woman, who obsessively fights for justice, who cares, who gives a voice to the voiceless, who gets knocked down and always gets back up,” the three ladies say in the video. “I make television filled with the kinds of characters I imagine we all can be. Strong but flawed, human but extraordinary. Our characters are on television but the real world… The real world has Hillary Clinton. A bonafide, rolls up her sleeves, fights for what’s right, in it for you, won’t back down, champion for all of us. That’s why I’m with Hillary. Join us.”
