Puddin's only playin'.

Jared Leto's Joker has a reputation that wildly proceeds him; rife with stories of the method actor repeatedly pranking his Suicide Squad co-stars with an array of rather nasty surprises. From the dead pig wheeled onto set by a henchman, to the gift of a black rat in a box handed to Margot Robbie - who plays the Joker's paramour, Harley Quinn, in the movie.

Then there's the mention Leto also sent his co-stars anal beads and used condoms. You know, for funsies, since, "the Joker is somebody who doesn’t really respect things like personal space or boundaries."

Well, now the actor's hoping to reassure future co-stars and fans that it's not all frights and nightmares starring across from Jared Leto in a movie. Speaking to E! News he insisted; "I did give some really nice, sweet gifts as well. I gave cupcakes."

Not long before adding with a smirk, "I don't think they should have eaten the cupcakes."

"I actually wrote everyone a poem as well," Leto added. "It helped me think about who they were and kind of created this illusion of a relationship and make the circumstances a little more realistic. I did get thank you notes for some of these gifts, mind you. I'm not going to say who or what or what specific gift was thanked, but there were a lot of, 'Joker likes to share his toys.'"

One last thing to leave everyone on; Leto casually revealed, "the funny thing about the gifts is no one has actually talked about the craziest stuff." Yes, there was something worse than anal beads.
