#SPOTTED: JARED LETO IN TORONTO FOR “SUICIDE SQUAD”
Talk about a real mission impossible! Sometimes all you need is a bit of luck on your hands. We had the amazing pleasure of running into The Joker himself, Jared Leto today in the City. Believe me, after many attempts to find him on the set of Suicide Squad, we’d just about given up. Time after time we’d get a faint hand-wave seen through the tinted window of his white Yukon after some long waits overnight, sacrificing our entire weekend more than once. And we’ve read the disappointing Fan interactions on Social Media where he simply would decline Selfies around the City and walk along in a non-caring manner. When you don’t expect it, that’s when it happens most and that’s been our Motto in life.
Sporting green Joker hair and a signature Nepal, I Love You T-shirt, showing his ardent support and spreading continued awareness for the country after a devastating earthquake back in April, we crossed paths with the Academy Award-winning Actor. He was headed-up the Escalator, my heart raced and my ears pricked and acting on instinct, I whipped-out my Samsung Galaxy S6. Without speaking a word, he gazed right into the lens for a quick pose, I pressed “snap” and despite reacting just a millisecond late, we managed to get a super-rare Snap with The Joker himself right side by side with us. Our shoulders touched. He said “yes” to the Selfie … with his eyes!!! We’re still on Cloud Nine and appreciate any interaction with him at this point as we know first-hand how tough Leto‘s been to catch.
His acclaimed performance as transgendered Rayon was everything to us and we were sad knowing he was in-town for Dallas Buyers Club TIFF ’13 and we missed him completely!
He continued ahead of us with his Handler and as luck would have it, we were both Airport-bound Civic Day weekend – him off to see a loved one and we off to New Jersey for a super-short visit (Triple Crown Champ American Pharoah in the $1.75 million Haskell Invitational).
Suicide Squad wraps later this month in the City, before getting a release exactly a year later in August 2016 via Warner Bros.
We’ve been on it as much as we can with the Suicide Squad Cast. Click here for more.
