Jared Leto Is Totally Unrecognizable In House Of Gucci, To The Point Where He Even Had Al Pacino Weirded Out

Jared Leto is well known for his versatile filmography and his penchant for disappearing into his roles. He’s taken his commitment to a performance to some pretty big extremes, sometimes to the point of controversy. And in his most recent film, Ridley Scott’s House of Gucci, he apparently did such a good job embodying his character that it weirded out his co-star, Al Pacino.

In House of Gucci, the Joker actor plays Paolo Gucci, son of the fashion line’s chairman, Aldo. In order to convincingly play the part, the actor donned a hair piece that made him look like he was balding, make-up to make him look older, and padding that made him appear to weigh more. The result is that he’s virtually unrecognizable — and that was apparently true when he was on the film’s set, too. During an interview on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, the actor admitted that his immersive dive into his role was maybe a little too detailed for his legendary co-star

Al Pacino plays my dad. You know it’s funny because I showed up for my first day of work in character and I said, ‘Papa,’ you know and he looked over and kind of just skirted away from me. I was like, ‘Oh, maybe he’s a little grumpy, I dunno.’ And then I tried again. I said, ‘Papa? It’s me Paolo.’ He basically shuffled off again, like ‘Who’s this creep?’ Then someone whispered, ‘Al it’s Jared.’ He turned around and went, ‘Ah, my son!!’
