Jared Leto


Jared Leto was just trying to leave go home when he reportedly got into a scuffle with a paparazzi at the airport in Los Angeles Tuesday afternoon. 

Police received a phone call reporting a battery in progress, no arrests have been made. "At 16:53 hours we received a call for a battery in progress," LAX police tell E! News. "Officers responded to Terminal 2 and conducted an investigation. Upon completion, officers determined that no battery took place."

Both parties walked away from the scene without any "visible or verifiable injuries," and no charges were filed against anyone involved. Because police determined no crimes had been committed, no one was arrested or booked, so Jared was able to go home without a problem.

Even though he wasn't decked out in his full Suicide Squad ensemble, Jared still looks really creepy with that neon green hair, even if it's covered with a baseball cap. Jared's co-star, Scott Eastwood, even told E! News in June that he was nervous to approach the star onset because he was deep into method acting.

"I was sort of afraid to approach him because I didn't want to mess with his thing going on," Eastwood told us exclusively at the Maui Film Festival, where he was honored with the Rising Star Award. "But I knew him before. I met him before he was The Joker. I just met him as Jared Leto. So I didn't know if I wanted to mess up his thing."

When his other co-stars first began filming and Jared wasn't around much, Adam Beach, who plays Slipnot in the Warner Bros. film, dished to E! News that the Oscar winner wasn't only about method acting—he was also about method giving!

"He sent [Margot Robbie] a nice love letter with a black box with a rat in it—a live rat," Beach dished in late June. "It was beautiful. Then he sent bullets to Will [Smith] with a letter."

The cast also received a video and a "dead hog."

"Basically, what he said was, 'Guys, I can't be there but I want you to know I'm doing my work as hard as you guys,'" Beach said. "The video he showed is in character. It blew our minds away. Then we realized that day, this is real."

Lesson learned: Don't mess with Jared...or any of these villains.
