The two were said to have interacted during a moment set in a strip club, where the Joker, played by Leto, chooses Bellamar”s character to be his “muse.” Although she claimed to have laughed off the inappropriate act several times, she admits that after a while, things got weird.
“I”m not a prude. I”m easy-going,” she insists, “but, it was creepy. It took me completely off guard.”
Bellamar also says that she wasn”t the only person that Leto made uncomfortable on the Suicide Squad set. Throughout filming, the Thirty Seconds To Mars front man also belittled several extras, while expressing that they should feel “lucky” just to be in his presence. She went on to add that while she was well aware of his choice to stay in character both on-and-off camera, there was still a line not to cross, and Leto overstepped it plenty of times.
“I have a great deal of respect for method acting,” she acknowledged, “but you can”t hide behind your craft. You have to be respectful of your fellow cast and crew.”
Interestingly, despite her claims against Jared, Bellamar would go on to gush about the experience, while commiserating with Leto about the deleted Suicide Squad footage on her Facebook page on August 8.
“As disappointed as I am that my scene with The Joker was not included in the final theatrical release, my heart truly goes out to Jared Leto,
“He had a henchman who would come into the rehearsal room,” she expressed, “and the henchman came in with a dead pig and plopped it on the table, and then he walked out. And that was our introduction to Jared Leto.”
