Plenty of people have opinions about how Jared Leto did in his turn as The Joker in David Ayer’s “Suicide Squad,” but one person who doesn’t is Leto himself.
Speaking with Syfy, the actor revealed he hasn’t seen the final film as he doesn’t watch his own work. That includes his Oscar-winning performance in “Dallas Buyers Club”:
“As soon as you watch it, that’s when it becomes subjective… No, I never did [watch ‘Dallas Buyers Club’]. I just think with watching your own films, it can be too self-conscious of a process. You either like what you did and you’re prone to repeat it, or you didn’t like it, and it can make you self-conscious. I’m not sure how much win there is for me. But I read the scripts, so I know what’s going to happen… As soon as you watch it, that’s when it becomes subjective.”
Leto goes on to confirm he hasn’t watched “Blade Runner 2049” either yet, though he might “at some point.” One exception he did make was “Requiem for a Dream” which he has seen.
