Viola Davis was safe from Jared Leto's Suicide Squad shenanigans.

The How to Get Away With Murder star tells E! News that she was not on the receiving end of the gifts that the Oscar winner sent to their Suicide co-stars.

And that's a very good thing.

"I did not receive any personally or else I would have got my husband who was called the headache ball back in the day when he played football," Davis said at last night's premiere of her new indie Custody at the Tribeca Film Festival. "I would have said, 'Take care of The Joker."

Just last week, Leto told me he sent his cast mates used condoms and anal beads.

"I did a lot of things to create a dynamic to create an element of surprise, a spontaneity and to really break down any kind of walls that may be there," he said while promoting Suicide Squad at CinemaCon. "The Joker is somebody who doesn't really respect things like personal space or boundaries."

Will Smith, no surprise, was surprised by the gifts.

"He went full Joker," the Men In Black star said, adding, "He really set the tone. He wasn't playing with it. He was dead serious as an actor. He was going in and he was 100 percent going into this character."

As has been previously reported, Leto also sent bullets to Smith, a live rat to Margot Robbie and a dead pig to the entire cast.

The pig was immediately returned to Leto with a note from the cast.

"That was a good gift because it had the effect of unifying us as a group because then it became us against him," Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, who plays Killer Croc, explained. "We sent the messenger back with the dead pig and our own personalized message. It got the ball rolling."

Suicide Squad will be in theaters on Aug. 5.
