The movie star who played the role of DC’s Joker before Joaquin Phoenix went back through memory lane to recall how he almost lost his life in 2017.

As a talented performer and skilled rock climber, Leto (48) has disclosed that it’s one of his best hobbies climbing rocks, and he and his partners get a kick out of it.

In 2017, Leto was climbing with Alex Honnold when he fell and the rope almost got cut by a sharp piece of rock as he dangled 600 feet in the air.

The actor reflected back on the incident with two posts in which he shared a selfie from high up on the Red Rock Canyon.

The Suicide Squad actor wrote:

“Not to sound dramatic, but this is the day I nearly died. Took a pretty good fall climbing with @AlexHonnold at Red Rock. Looked up and within seconds the rope was being cut by the rock while I dangled some 600 ft in the air. I remember looking down at the ground below.

It was a strange moment – less fear, more matter of fact, and slightly melancholy. The adrenaline came after, when I got back on the wall. But we made it through and lived to see another day. Overall it was actually quite fun. we continued climbing into the night…”
