Viola Davis was not having any of Jared Leto’s shit on the set of Suicide Squad

Viola Davis is frequently cast as an authority figure thanks to her general aura of unfuckwithability, and apparently her husband is not someone to be messed with, either. E! News asked Davis about her Suicide Squad co-star Jared Leto’s dead pig- and used condom-based shenanigans at the Tribeca Film Festival yesterday, where Davis confirmed that no, she wasn’t about to deal with all that bullshit at work just because Leto thinks he’s Daniel Day-Lewis or something now that he won an Oscar.

“I did not receive any personally,” Davis said of Leto’s method-acting-infused “gifts.” She added, “or else I would have gotten my husband, who was called ‘headache ball’ back in the day when he played football. And I would have said, ‘take care of The Joker.”’ Davis has been married to Julius Tennon, a former college football player-turned-actor, since 2003.

Davis will personally take care of The Joker—and the rest of the supervillain gang—as authority figure Amanda Waller in Suicide Squad this August.
