Leto cut his signature ombre hair, bleached and dyed it green. He also had his eyebrows shaved for the part of Joker in DC Comics 2014. You can add a lot of tattoos to his face, such as the words “Damaged” written on his forehead and the silver-colored teeth, and you get the most outrageous (and controversial) portrayal yet. 

His transformation to the villainous actor went beyond just his appearance. The actor sent gag gifts such as “used condoms” and “anal beads”, to his fellow stars, which included Viola Davis Margot Robbie. There were also rumours that Leto might have gifted a dead Rat to him.

CelebHomes News’s star said that he did many things to make the film dynamic and create an element surprise, spontaneity, as well as to break down any barriers. The Joker is someone who does not respect boundaries or personal space.

Leto clarified, in 2021 the reporting of his gag presents, telling Entertainment Weekly, “Any of the very few gifts that were ever given were given with a spirit of fun and adventure and received with laughter, fun and adventure.”

He added, “I’m playing a guy called the Joker, it’s okay to play some jokes. Nothing ever crossed any lines, and it’s not up to other people on the internet to create those lines… I’m an artist at the end of the day. If you aren’t comfortable with me doing something risky, then you have the right to kiss my sex.
