“There was a luncheon today for the film, and Liza Minnelli hosted it. You know what she said to me? She said, ‘I haven’t felt this way since I saw “On the Waterfront.”’ And she stood up in front of everybody and said, ‘Jared, when I was watching your performance, I felt the way that I do when a friend is going through the hardest time of their life. I felt like I knew you and that I cared for you in the way I would a dear friend.’”
–Jared Leto talks about Liza Minnelli’s response to his performance in “Dallas Buyers Club” with LA Confidential Magazine. I mean, it’s not every day that Liza Minnelli compares you to Marlon Brando circa 1954. That must count as an endorsement for him to win the Oscar, right? [LA Confidential]
Lupita Nyong’o is on today’s episode of “Ellen,” and in this already released clip, the “12 Years a Slave” actress addresses rumors that she’s dating fellow Oscar nominee Jared Leto. “You’re actually in tabloids which means you’ve really made it,” says Ellen. “Because there’s rumors that you and Jared Leto are together.”
“Ah, but I thought Miley Cyrus broke us up. That was the last thing I heard,” Lupita joked, referencing another recent rumor that Leto was actually hooking up with Miley Cyrus. Keep reading »
Ever since I came across this photo of Oscar nominees Lupita Nyong’o (“12 Years A Slave”) and Jared Leto (“Dallas Buyers Club”) eye fucking at the Gotham Awards, I’ve been ‘shipping this pair so hard. How beautiful would their babies be?! Well, it turns out that I wasn’t imagining the chemistry between them. Page Six is reporting that the two were spotted getting very cozy in New York this week, prompting many to wonder if the sparks will turn into real-life romance. PLEASE YES. Click through to see nine photos that prove LuLeto NEEDS to happen.
This morning, the nominees for the 2014 Academy Awards were announced. For the most part, the nominees were expected, and there were few noticeable snubs — though I am still steaming that James Franco in “Spring Breakers” has been all but overlooked this awards season. Check out the full list of nominees after the jump! (And, because I HAVE AN OPINION, DAMMIT, my picks for who I think should win in the top categories are in bold.) Keep reading »
My first reaction to seeing this video of 30 Seconds to Mars covering Rihanna’s “Stay” was, Oh so that’s how Jordan Catalano sings now. For some reason, I assumed Jared Leto always sounded exactly the way he did when Frozen Embryos covered the Ramones’ “Sedated,” or when he sang that song “Red” about his car, on “My So-Called Life.” Anyway, 30 Seconds to Mars is still not my jam, but damn if my panties did not drop the minute Jared opened his mouth. Maybe that’s because we shared a moment when he was in our office a few weeks ago and now I have a more intimate connection with him, sorry to brag. [Dlisted]
“Well, I recommend that men try [wearing high heels]. I think it’ll give you a deeper understanding and appreciation for women around the world.”
– Jared Leto tells Cosmopolitan the secret to understanding women as learned from playing a transexual character in “The Dallas Buyers Club.” Not only is he smart and sensitive (he calls the trans women he met with to prep for the movies his “teachers”) and open minded, but his hair is so damn pretty I don’t care what kind of shoes he wears.

The first trailer is out for the new film “Dallas Buyers Club.” The movie is based on the true story of Ron Woodruff, a Texas man who was diagnosed with AIDS and given less than a month to live. Rather than accepting his death sentence, Woodroof went to extreme lengths to find and smuggle medication from Mexico. Eventually, Woodroof began selling those meds to other sufferers and created what became the Dallas Buyers Club. Matthew McConaughey plays Woodruff, and underwent a startling transformation, dropping more than 5o pounds for the part. Our boyfriend Jared Leto plays Rayon, an HIV+ trans woman who goes into business with McConaughey.
Even watching the three minute trailer made me tear up, you guys. This movie is going to be so heartbreaking, but so necessary to see. It’s not often that we see HIV/AIDS being represented in major film and television shows, and it seems clear that McConaughey and Leto really committed to their roles. Tears! So many tears!

Yesterday afternoon, Amelia and I met
Jordan Catalano Jared Leto, erstwhile actor and singer for the band 30 Seconds to Mars. He and his bandmates were visiting our company video studio to do an interview, and they were all lovely. We were even lucky enough to snag a photo of ourselves with Leto and his beautiful silky hair. But of course, immediately after he went on his way, we realized there was so much more we should have said to him, but didn’t. In lieu of sending his publicist crazy emails (which is not entirely out of the question), we’ve compiled this post of fantasy things we wish we could have said to Jared. Keep reading »
Yeah, this is just a photo of Jared Leto suspended in the air alongside his 30 Seconds to Mars bandmate at a Swedish amusement park. Carry on! [Photo: Fame/Flynet]
