Last December, Jared Leto filed a lawsuit against TMZ for posting a video in which he said he didn't "give a f*ck" about Taylor Swift , claiming the clip was a "stolen copy" and "not meant to be publicly released."

Jared Leto doesn’t have a squad. In fact, he’s spent his 22-year career confounding expectations and swan-diving off the pop-culture grid. Here, the Oscar-winner gives his most in-depth interview ever—and dons the best clothes from this fall’s Italian fashion collections at our photo shoot in Milan, Italy.
We’re less than a month away from David Ayer’s Suicide Squad hitting theaters stateside, and the pressure is on for Warner Bros. to deliver after the response to Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice – though the studio also needs to deliver on how much the film has been talked about this summer . Although the role of The Joker (Jared Leto) had been a major mystery looming over the film since his inclusion was announced, more and more teasers and images have been released in recent weeks to give prospective moviegoers an idea of what’s to come when the film is released next month.
Jared Leto took to Instagram this weekend to share some new photos of everyone’s favorite green-haired villain. Although most of them are solo shots of the Clown Prince of Crime himself, one features the Joker getting face-to-face with his former psychiatrist Dr. Harleen Quinzel — a.k.a. Margot Robbie’s Harley Quinn.
