Last year, Jared Leto seemed very disappointed to discover that some of his “best” work as the Joker was cut out of Suicide Squad, but in a recent interview with Syfy, he has revealed that he’s never actually seen the movie. However, unlike some of us, he didn’t choose not to see the movie because it looked dumb or got bad reviews. Instead, he decided not to see it because he has to have a “subjective” opinion on one of his movies once he actually watches it, which is also why he’s barely seen any of the movies he’s appeared in—including Dallas Buyers Club, which he won an Oscar for.
“I just think with watching your own films, it can be too self-conscious of a process,” he says, adding, “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.” He doesn’t really feel like he’s missing out on anything by skipping the movies themselves, though, because he says, “I read the scripts, so I know what’s going to happen.” That being said, he did watch Requiem For A Dream, and he’s hoping to catch Blade Runner 2049 at some point.
Considering that the guy really liked being in Suicide Squad but won’t see Suicide Squad, the fact that he wants to see Blade Runner 2049 seems like a ringing endorsement.
