Jared Leto may be a beloved Oscar winner, but at least one of his Suicide Squad costars found him to be a "creep" on set.

Actress Ariane Bellamar, who played the Joker's muse in a strip club scene ultimately cut from production, claims Leto, 44, began rubbing his crotch beneath his pants and growling at her in between takes while filming at a Toronto nightclub in June 2015.

"He wasn't hiding it or anything," she tells RadarOnline.com in an exclusive interview. "He did it every time he walked past me."

Though the blond beauty says she initially "laughed it off," she became disturbed by the behavior.

"I'm not a prude, I'm easy-going," she insists. "But it was creepy. It took me completely off guard."

However, a spokeswoman for Leto denies he acted inappropriately.

"There is absolutely no truth to this," the rep tells Radar. "It's completely false."

Bellamar insists Leto had no apologies for his actions, as he claimed he was "method acting" during the entire 21-hour shoot.

The "rude" star even slighted extras in the scene, she alleges.

"He would go around and yell that they were lucky to be in his presence," Bellamar claims. "He ran the set."

"I have a great deal of respect for method acting, but you can't hide behind your craft. You have to be respectful of your fellow cast and crew."

Despite her slams against Leto, Bellamar took to Facebook to earlier this week to lament his many deleted scenes in the film.

"As disappointed as I am that my scene with ‪#‎thejoker was not included in the final theatrical release, my heart truly goes out to Jared Leto, who's devotion to his character was so obvious on set, it literally freaked me out!" she wrote on August 8. "It must be devastating to watch your hard work & dedication whittled down to 15 minutes of screen time With that being said, working opposite of Mr. Leto was an opportunity of a lifetime & I'm appreciative to have had the chance to learn from such an inspirational talent."
