Jai Courtney Chased the Director of Suicide Squad Around the Set Naked, and I Wish I Was Surprised

I’m not surprised this happened. I’m not even surprised that there’s a photo of it. This is actually one of the more charming tales we’ve heard. But I am slightly surprised that there are still Suicide Squad set stories to tell.


Conan O’Brien asked Jai Courtney if it was true that he chased director David Ayer around while he was naked. And Courtney said it was. “He came into my trailer one day and I must not have had any clothes,” Courtney explained.

“He comes in, and look, I’m an impulsive dude. I just kind of went after him. And Jay Hernandez, who plays Diablo in the movie, I could hear behind me saying ‘Sic ‘em, boy,’” said Courtney. “And it just...you know you gotta go with one of these things.”

“I’m just wondering who’ve I gotta kill now for dropping that,” joked Courtney after the photo of him naked and chasing David Ayer was shown. “‘Cause I got dirt on that crew,” he continued. “I’m happy to be the fall guy for the shenanigans.”

What more dirt could he have? No, seriously, how could there still be untold stories of weird-ass shit happening on the Suicide Squad set? We already have enough to fill a book, what does Courtney have left to spill? You know what, I don’t want to know. Naked chases are cute and all, but the next secret story is going to be, like, a felony. I know it.

What are the sexual harassment rules like on a movie set?

You couldn’t get away with this in any other workplace.

Actual question.
