All the way back in April we reported that Thirty Seconds to Mars frontman/weirdo actor supreme Jared Leto decided to surprise his Suicide Squad co-stars with presents they weren't totally stoked on: used condoms, anal beads and a dead pig. Yeah.

Out or everyone it seems actress Viola Davis, who plays Amanda Waller in the much-anticipated DC Comics antihero movie, was the most upset. Things could've gotten really ugly. 

In an interview with E! News, we learn Davis was ready to pepper spray Leto after he made the confusing gesture. She told the site:

"It was a little worrisome. It made me a little bit nervous and I’m pretty tough. You know I got into a few fights when I was growing up... but it scared me a little. Before that I was only introduced to The Joker... and I almost had my pepper spray out. You know, ‘You remember that bullet you sent me?' Every single person in it gets to be completely insane because all the characters are insane. They’re bad guys. We’re all bad guys."
