Around 2016, during the recording of ‘Suicide squad‘, Jared Leto was marked by unusual behavior behind the scenes, as he sent co-stars gifts such as mice, condoms and other such oddities. This time it seems that the case was repeated in ‘Morbius‘.
During an interview for the American website UPROXX, the director of the feature, daniel espinosasaid that Leto was so intent on getting into his character’s shoes that he wouldn’t come out of characterization for even a minute, going so far as to use crutches and a wheelchair during breaks to keep limping the entire time.
Will Poulterwhich will give life to the hero Adam Warlock in ‘Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3‘, made some comments about this form practiced by Leto, criticizing the star without naming names: “When it comes to an actor’s process, or whatever it is, as long as it doesn’t infringe on other people’s space and you’re being considerate, that’s fine. But if your process creates an inhospitable environment, then to me you’ve lost sight of what’s important. The method of acting should not be used as an excuse for inappropriate behavior.”.
the practice of Jared Leto in question is not an invention of the actor, it even has a name for it: The Method. This approach consists of a reinterpretation of a Russian acting system developed by the late Konstantin Stanislavski, and preaches that staying in character throughout the entire shooting schedule is tremendously important to the final result, even off-camera. Curious, no?
