Dear Jared Leto,
J-Rod, let’s talk. I’ve followed your career and your cheekbones and your 1000-yard stare ever since you were a flannel-wearing, illiterate teenage wastrel on “My So Called Life.” Your turn as Jordan Catalano — (“Y Kant Jordan Read?,” never forget) — the frustratingly vacant love interest of Angela Chase (remember how darling Claire Danes was before Latisse?) broke a million teenage girl hearts. Which is why I find it especially egregious that you’ve grown up to be the Jared Leto that you are today. The douche-y, guyliner-wearing Jared Leto that fronts MTV2 mainstay band 30 Seconds to Mars and insists on dressing like an utter and complete tool.

This may be a controversial and somewhat politically incorrect opinion, but I’ll just say it: Jared Leto has aged to look like a female-to-male transsexual. There is something that happens when a dude is too pretty, and his face refuses to age up and out of that, which makes him seem just kind of strange looking. And that’s the Leto Effect. Just look at him in this Hugo Boss ad for proof.
James Franco, on the other hand, seems to have actually discovered his jawbone. See this new Gucci ad? His face has filled out and gone from rough to smooth since his “Freaks and Geeks” days. Don’t worry, I still think he’d be really annoying to hang out with. But at least he’s not prettier than me. (Gah, I can’t believe I said something nice about James Franco).
Passover is still many months away, but Jared Leto will be ready for it. He’s not quite there yet, but come April he will know exactly how to handle that giant piece of matzoh. [Buzzfeed] Keep reading »
Yesterday was the 17th anniversary of Kurt Cobain
‘s death/suicide and Jared Leto
marked the sad occasion by releasing this bizarre video in which the actor and 30 Seconds to Mars singer performs Nirvana
‘s “Pennyroyal Tea.” Um, dressed as Cobain. Apparently, he made the video awhile ago, when he was hoping to be cast in a rumored biopic about the rock star, but decided yesterday was the appropriate day to post it on the web for the masses to enjoy. (He never actually submitted it as an audition tape.) I’m not sure I agree that career-furthering, self-indulgent cosplay is the best way of paying tribute to one of rock’s most brilliant and tragic figures. What do you think? [The Daily What

Yesterday, Simcha alerted us to Jared Leto’s newly blue ‘do. This bright shade of turquoise (or “Mint Blue,” as the Facebook page dedicated solely to Jared Leto’s hair calls it) is one of my favorite colors — even when it’s not attached to a gorgeous man’s face. After the jump, I’ve collected some bright blue clothing and accessories to help us all bring a little Leto into our lives … Keep reading »
Jared Leto is a master of the Facebook—he constantly uploads sweet stuff to his page. But apparently, he’s not giving his new blue ‘do enough coverage. So, Jared Leto’s Mint Blue Hair is showing off his awesome style — which, as you’ll notice in the photo to the right, he totally cribbed from “Velvet Goldmine” rocker Brian Slade. Right?! I mean, it can’t be just coincidence that he’s touring England with his band, 30 Seconds To Mars, looking like the glam rock luvah from the British flick. Clearly, Jared is begging for a sequel to be made starring him. Writer/Director Todd Haynes, get on it! Keep reading »
Ladies and germs, I am excited to present evidence that Jared Leto has returned to his formerly hot self. Gone is the man makeup and the bleached-out or swoopy goth hair. His band still sucks, but he at least looks good playing in it again. I would like for him to gain a little more weight in his abdomen area, but I give him an “A” for arousal.

Behold, the art of Jared Leto’s man makeup. Well, I guess I know what this girl is planning to be for Halloween. [ONTD] Keep reading »
Holy Jordan Catalano! Check out these recently unearthed photos of an 18-year-old Jared Leto posing as a hair model with a mane that would make Soundgarden-era Chris Cornell jealous. Check out another shot, after the jump! [Santoro & Co. via ONTD]
For reasons I still can’t quite comprehend, Jared Leto is a major fixture in the front row during Fashion Week. Here, he and couture master John Galliano look as chummy as fashion types can get when they’re worried about standing out, wrinkles, and clashing (time periods). One more photo of Jared after the jump. [Paris, 7/5/10] Keep reading »
