Jai Courtney Talks Mushrooms prepping for His Character in Suicide Squad


SuperHeroHype recently sat down with Suicide Squad actor Jai Courtney, who shared details about research for his role in the DC film. Courtney admitted that he ingested mushrooms to think about his character, but shot down the rumor that he did so before a call with David Ayer:

Courtney on using mushrooms: “The thing is, why would I take magic mushrooms and get on a phone call with David Ayer? Obviously that’s not the case. All I was saying is that I happened at one point to have taken mushrooms, and I was doing a little thinking about my character, and just investigating stuff a little further.”

On Ayer not telling him to try this method: “David under no circumstances told me to digest, or ingest anything for that matter. That’s not his style at all.”
