10 Weirdest Celebrity Conspiracy Theories You Won't Believe

10. Heath Ledger, Jack Nicholson, And Jared Leto Were Possessed By The Joker

Warner Bros.

After the tragic loss of a young actor, in this case 28 year old Heath Ledger, it makes sense for fans to try to find a reason for a senseless death. When that reason is the actor becoming possessed by the character of the Joker, sense kind of flies out the window. But then again...

This conspiracy theory states that not only did Heath Ledger die because of how deep he went into the Joker's mind, but that the Joker has actually possessed every actor who played him in feature films. It's known as something of a curse that Ledger, Jack Nicholson, and Jared Leto have all succumbed to, and it sounds ridiculous until you look further into it. As it turns out, even the actors themselves may believe this one's true.

When Ledger played the role he was known to have suffered a deep psychological break that caused him to only sleep two hours a night. He said that the character got inside his mind and wouldn't let go, a fact that Nicholson said he warned Ledger about before he took the role, citing his own troubles with the character as proof.

Add to that Leto's noted struggles with the clown prince of crime, which included tormenting his cast-mates and sending dead animals to people, and it makes sense that he described playing the Joker as "giving birth out of my prick hole."

So, while this conspiracy isn't exactly confirmed, it does sound a lot more believable than most.
