Will Smith revealed many things during his Beats 1 radio interview with Zane Lowe on Monday, including a bit about Bad Boys 3 and his upcoming tour and new album. But the part of the interview that caught our attention was the section above (starting at 15:35, or 15:55 if you’re rushed), in which Will Smith talks about Jared Leto’s infamous method acting in Suicide Squad.

I’d like to take a minute, just sit right there, and Will Smith will tell you how the Clown Prince of Crime went all method actor-y in here.

“[Suicide Squad] is insane. I’ve never actually met Jared Leto. We worked together for six months and we’ve never exchanged a word outside of ‘Action!’ and ‘Cut!’ […] I literally have not met him yet. So, the first time I see him will be ‘Hey, Jared. What’s up?’ […] He was all in on the Joker.” (Via)

Host Zane Lowe, who knows Leto, joked, “Probably a good thing. He’s a dick.”
