Jared Leto covers the August issue of Rolling Stone!

With Suicide Squad about to hit theaters, it's no wonder Rolling Stone would want Jared Leto on their cover!

And while he easily could have taken the August issue as The Joker, the actor is quite simply him… well, in all his shirtless glory!

The 44-year-old has his INSANE six-pack on full display as he looks more shredded than ever, but it's inside the magazine that Jared really has our full attention.

Of course with his highly-anticipated performance as The Joker soon to be shown on big screens, he shared:

"The Joker is incredibly comfortable with acts of violence. I was watching real violence, consuming that. There's a lot you can learn from seeing it. Not every act of violence is committed with frenzy, either. I remember learning that. People can be calm. They've made their choice and go and do something, and it's not in a frenzy. It's methodical and sometimes even hypnotic and deliberate."

And Leto's also well aware of the footsteps he's following in. The cover star dished on Heath Ledger, the late actor who last filled The Joker's shoes:

Matt Damon Remembers Time Spent With The Late Prince & Heath Ledger In The August Issue Of GQ

Matt Damon

Matt Damon was fortunate enough to spend time with both Prince and Heath Ledger before their tragic passings.

The 45-year-old covers the August issue of GQ — sporting some new salt and pepper locks! — and instead of just any old interview, the magazine rounded up some of Damon's closest industry friends to share their personal memories with the actor.

In one of the stories, the Jason Bourne star and his castmate Julia Stiles recalled meeting the music legend Prince for the first time in London.

Lindsay Lohan SLAMS The Suicide Squad Movie For Ripping Off THIS Late Actor!

Oh Linds…

Although the highly anticipated film Suicide Squad starring Jared Leto comes out next month, there's one person who will NOT be rushing to the theatre.

On Monday, Lindsay Lohan shared a collage on Instagram where she honors Brandon Lee — star of 1994's The Crow — and slams Leto, Heath Ledger, and Jack Nicholson — who have all portrayed The Joker — for stealing his look. (It's important to note that Nicholson portrayed the character in 1989 for Batman, five years before Lee.)

Jake Gyllenhaal Opens Up On The Traumatic Loss Of Best Friend Heath Ledger

Filed under: Jake GyllenhaalHeath LedgerSad Sad

Jake Gyllenhaal is still grieving over Heath Ledger.

Eight years after Heath's untimely death, his Broke Back Mountain costar Jake spoke to People Magazine about the terrible tragedy. In addition to being costars, the two were also best friends and Gyllenhaal is even the godfather to Heath's daughter Matilda.

While J.G. admitted that he's still not able to speak about the loss "publicly" on a personal level, he did reveal how the horrible incident shaped his views of fame, celebrity, and his professional priorities.

Opening up on the experience just a few days after what would have been Ledger's 37th birthday, the actor explained:

"… I think I was at an age where mortality was not always clear to me. I think you live in this bubble, too, of making films … There are real friends, and there is a real community. There is also that Macklemore song where he says, 'The curtain closes and nobody notices' … I think that's true, and I think that's okay.
But I think at the time, I assumed everyone would notice – and they did with Heath dying, but I think it gave me the experience of, 'This is fleeting.' And none of the attention or synthesized love that comes from the success of a film really matters at all. What matters is the relationships you make when you make a film, and the people you learn from when you're preparing for a film. That changed a lot for me."

Considering Jake was only 27-years-old at the time of H.L.'s death, we can understand why "mortality" was hard for him to grasp. We're just glad to hear the Southpaw star was able to reshape his world view in effort to focus on what's really important in life — loved ones.

It will be interesting to see the 35-year-old play a grieving husband in his upcoming film Demolition. Hopefully the experience was cathartic for Jake.

Jared Leto Reveals How He Wants To 'Redefine' The Joker In Suicide Squad — See What He Had To Say!

no title

Despite the critical bashing that Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice has received, there still seems to be quite a bit of excitement around Warner Brothers next DC comic book movie Suicide Squad.

While the anti-hero team up has plenty of BIG name talent like Will Smith, Cara Delevingne, and Viola Davis, it's probably Jared Leto's portrayal of the Joker that people are most excited for.

Sure, it's going to be hard to upstage Heath Ledger's turn as the Clown Prince in The Dark Knight, but doing things like sending the cast a dead pig to help stay in character really sends a message to the fans about the lengths he'll go.

On top of that, Leto recently sat down with Entertainment Weekly and dished about taking on the iconic comic book role saying:

the dark knight interrogation 1

There's about to be a new Batman in town as Ben Affleck's version of The Dark Knight will make his debut in Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice on March 25.

We're definitely interested to see how Affleck will handle the role of Bruce Wayne, but like several other people we won't be able to help ourselves from comparing Ben to Christian Bale's performances in the Christopher Nolan trilogy.

While everyone else will be scrutinizing Batfleck, apparently Bale isn't too happy with his own performance as the Caped Crusader.

In an interview with Yahoo! Movies, the Brit opened up about his role saying:
