Jared Leto turned plenty of heads yesterday when he turned up at the European world premiere of Suicide Squad, dressed in a bright green Gucci coat and flamingo pink trousers.

And if you were paying attention, you'd also have noticed a meme going around, one of Jared with the same expression you get when you find the jacket of your dreams – that moment was photographed at the Gucci menswear show in Milan. In front of him, vivid and unmistakeable, the same green jacket. The world was happy for him.

But our happiness lasted only two days: in truth, the face Jared made was not because of the jacket.

"The thing about the photo is – I'm going to be honest with you – I was actually making a face at someone across the runway," Jared told Vanity Fair.


"I have that feeling with most things [Gucci] makes because they make such beautiful things. But I was actually goofing off with a friend, and you can't actually tell from the picture," Jared said. "Sorry to ruin your meme. Perception versus reality."

*Flips table* Just kidding, we'll just keep this meme in our hearts forever.
