Taking on the role of the Joker is no easy feat!

Jared Leto took an interesting approach for getting into character for the upcoming Suicide Squad movie — which didn't bode well for his costars.

That's because according to Viola Davis, the actor tapped into his inner evil lunatic by freaking out the other cast members before they even started filming!

In a new interview with Vanity Fair, the How To Get Away With Murder star explained that the 30 Seconds to Mars frontman gave the cast of the anti-hero action flick some "really horrific gifts" on set, recalling:

Vanity Fair Embraces More Diversity Than Usual With New Hollywood Issue Cover Featuring Viola Davis, Jennifer Lawrence, Lupita Nyong'o, & More

Vanity Fair releases its annual Hollywood issue.

It's the annual Vanity Fair Hollywood issue!

And we're proud to report that it's a little more diverse than previous years.

The issue is known for almost always relegating actors of color into the foldout cover so they don't appear on the actual front page, but this time Viola Davis gets to share it with Jennifer Lawrence, Jane Fonda, and Cate Blanchett.

Progress, we guess.

The rest of the cover features Lupita Nyong'o, Brie Larson, Charlotte Rampling, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Alicia Vikander, Rachel Weisz, Helen Mirren, Saoirse Ronan, and Diane Keaton.

There are also gorgeous individual portraits of all the women shot by Annie Leibovitz, which you can find in the gallery (above)!

But first, watch a clip of the women talking about their hoped-for legacies (below):

Someone had to say it!

Idris Elba is killing it so far at the 2016 SAG Awards!

The actor took home TWO awards for his roles in Beasts of No Nation and Luther!

But when he got out on stage for a third time to introduce the Beasts of No Nation's ensemble nomination — he decided to throw some subtle, yet classy shade at the Oscars!

Right after Viola Davis won the trophy for Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Drama Series, Elba went on stage with his costar Abraham Attah and called out the Academy's all-white acting nominees! He said:

"Ladies and gentleman, welcome to diverse TV."

AH-Mazing!

After getting majorly snubbed for Best Supporting Actor with the Oscar nominees this year, we don't think there's anyone better to make that dig!

What did YOU think of the shady moment?

Viola Davis Looks Fab But Suffers From Some Fabric Wrinkles On The SAG Awards Red Carpet

SAG Awards 2016: Viola Davis walks the red carpet.

Curse those wrinkles!

This Zac Posen dress on Viola Davis at the SAG Awards is so fabulous, but the wrinkles on the fabric really mar the beauty of it. Unfortunately.

The actress was still gorgeous though, and the details on her dress were exquisite — from the origami folds to the off-shoulder silhouette!

That dusty lilac color was also easy on the eyes.

Are you willing to overlook the wrinkles, Perezcious readers???
