During the filming of David Ayer‘s Suicide Squad, rumors emerged that Jared Leto immersed himself into the role of Joker so much that he actually gifted Margot Robbie a dead rat.

Now, five years later, Leto has decided to clear the air and reveal the truth behind the story.

Next month, DC fans will see Jared Leto make a controversial return as Joker in Zack Snyder‘s recut of Justice League. The reported four-hour Snyder Cut officially hits HBO Max on Mar. 18. Earlier this month, Snyder teased Leto’s return with a cryptic photo before completely unveiling Joker’s sinister new look in the Justice League recut.

Before Leto’s Joker officially returns to screens next month, the actor is clearing the air about a five-year-old rumor. Adam Beach, who played Slipknot in Suicide Squad, previously told E! that Leto got very into his Joker character. So much so that he gave his co-stars some peculiar gifts. For Robbie, Leto reportedly gave her a “nice love letter with a black box with a rat in it—a live rat.”

As rumors go, the story soon got retold and led many fans to believe that Leto actually gifted Robbie a dead rat. However, Leto has now cleared the air and says that never happened.

“I never gave Margot Robbie a dead rat, that’s not true,” he tells GQ. “I actually – I found this place in Toronto that had great vegan cinnamon buns and that was a very common thing.”

So although Leto may not have gifted Robbie a dead rat, he did really give her a live one. Back in 2016, Robbie told GQ that she had kept the rat as a pet. However, she didn’t mention anything about those vegan cinnamon buns.

“I ended up getting him like a sweet little playpen.”
