But Leto is now denying one of the most disgusting rumors about his time as 'The Joker' in the movie.
While talking to Entertainment Weekly, the actor said that most of the reports were total "bulls**t".
He said, "Most of it was total bullsh**t. Like that I was giving used condoms to people, which was not true. It doesn't matter how loud you shout or hold up a sign with your pants off in Times Square - people will run the story that they want."
"I gave wrapped gifts to everyone, and people were thrilled to get them. They were laughing. We were giving whatever The Joker would give was the idea. It was really touching at the end to go and give the gifts. We'd be filming and people would be laughing, and they'd go and open up and there'd be a porno magazine or something, you know, plus 60."
Adding, "It would be whatever would be funny. You know, whatever would be absurd or outrageous."
The flick is slated to release in the UK cinemas on October 6. (ANI)
