Watch: Jared Leto Recalls 'First Times' During E! Rapid Fire

Oh, how sweet it is to listen to and watch Jared Leto taking a stroll down memory lane.

I sat down with the Oscar winner in NYC on Sunday to talk about his new flick Suicide Squad. We also had some fun chatting about some of his first times.

Leto recalled his first foray into the acting business.

"One of my first auditions was for one line in Star Trek, just one line in Star Trek: The New Generation," the 44-year-old actor remembered. "Great show, but I was terrible and I definitely did not get the part. I remember going up for WKRP in Cincinnati...They tried to remake the show. Definitely didn't get the part. I remember being so bad, just being so embarrassed reading. How can you be so bad?"

Leto, who makes his much buzzed about debut as The Joker in Suicide Squad (in theaters on Aug. 5), also remembered his first kiss. "That's a little too naughty to talk about," he teased. "I mean, that's a whole different show."

He added about the smooch, "It makes your head spin."

And then there was a first for me at last night's Suicide Squad premiere in New York City. After I complimented Leto on his Gucci coat, he insisted I put it on and wear it while I interviewed him. Check out what happened in the video below.

And make sure to watch E! News tonight at 7 p.m. and 11 p.m. for a lot more exclusive scoop from the Suicide Squad red black carpet premiere.
