Anne Hathaway has said that Jared Leto was 'weird' while they were working on set together, which isn't the first time we've heard that about the performer.

Jared Leto is known as a bit of a method actor, which means he can get up to some strange behaviours on set.

He was so bizarre on the set of Morbius that he actually ended up slowing down production on the movie as he refused to go to the toilet unless he could use his character's crutches to get there.

Meanwhile, in House of Gucci, he claimed he got so Italian that he was 'snorting lines of arrabbiata sauce', though we're not sure how seriously we should take anyone who says that.

And now, Anne Hathaway has admitted that while working with Leto, she got to see him be 'weird', though joked that it was a really good experience.

Speaking on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen, Hathaway was asked what it was like to share the screen with method actors like Jared Leto and Jeremy Strong, who she's acted alongside in WeCrashed and Armageddon Time.

She said: "It's so fun because I'm not the weird one on set.

"It's great because both of them are so bold and so good. When someone's bold, and good and great an all of those things it kind of shakes me out, I can be a little timid at times when I first meet people.

"It shakes me right out of it, makes it about the work, you feel like you can't fail because you're just playing and experimenting and seeking."

Leto might be a method actor, but Hathaway previously revealed she'd been able to get him to break out of character while working together.

She said that she 'respected' Leto's method but couldn't help but crack a joke about House of Gucci, which got the actor to break character as he was laughing so much.

He said even though he'd been trained in method acting, he didn't believe it translated into a better performance once everything had been put together.

Leto has been known to engage in weird behaviour on set when he's got a peculiar character to play.

Some of the stuff he got up to on the set of Suicide Squad sounded pretty outlandish, though at least some of it ended up getting blown out of proportion.

While there were some rumours that in his role as The Joker he gifted co-star Margot Robbie a dead rat, both actors later cleared up that the rat was very much alive and squeaking when he handed it over.

Still, he can't take himself that seriously all the time as he's also been spotted having a laugh at a bunch of Morbius memes.
