The Suicide Squad actor, Jared Leto says that Hollywood is still very conservative in its mannerism and approach and feels that there is no place yet, for a gay leading man to be in the cast.

"I definitely don't think a gay leading man would have the same opportunities as a straight leading man," Leto said.

"I don't think that. Not for a single second. I don't know if that's offensive or not, but that's my thought right now. It shouldn't be that way. I don't think you'll have as many opportunities," he added.

Even Leto argued his views on the same against the so-called minorities in the industry. He said they are not accepted properly in Hollywood, even today.

"And I think you could say the same for minorities. What a word, 'minority'. Have we taken that word off the list yet? Because it should be. Anyway, no, I think that this is still a very conservative business," Leto said.

Jared Leto also took pride in the character as Joker he plays for the movie Suicide Squad and said - "You're kind of walking upon hallowed ground, and it deserves the very best that you can do. It takes over your life and that's what I needed to do for myself."
