When Jared Leto won his Oscar for Best Supporting Actor, the first person he thanked was his mother, Constance. She was also his date to the event. Clearly, the two are close. But as Jared’s speech hinted at, his childhood was a tough one. I’m not sure anyone knew how tough though. Now details about Jared’s upbringing are being reported in the media. It’s fairly heartbreaking — but also uplifting. It shows you how a strong familial foundation — and a loving mom — can help a child overcome incredible odds. Read more on The Stir…
I just came across this photo and couldn’t not share. Lupita Nyong’o is so poised one moment and so hilarious the next. Flawless! Just date already, you two. [Photo: Getty Images]
Knock on wood, but Jared Leto and his beautiful ombre man bun will probably be taking home an Academy Award tonight for playing a trans woman in “Dallas Buyers Club,” but he probably won’t get as much time on stage to say thank you as he did at last night’s Film Independent Spirit Awards. I loved his full acceptance speech — which included a funny but still swoon-worthy shoutout to maybe-paramour Lupita Nyong’o — so much that I wanted to post the full transcript, which you can find after the jump. Watch the edited version, which aired on television, above. Good luck tonight, Jared! We’re rooting for you. Keep reading »
Earlier today, I tweeted the following: “Ugh, Jared Leto is so hot but he gets less so every time I am reminded he hangs out with Terry Richardson.” And I’m still totally sad that Jared continues to be friends with the predatory pervtographer, but I might have to take back the part about him being less attractive because of it. Because I just saw these photos of the man formerly known as Jordan Catalano and, in the words of Angela Chase, IT HURTS TO LOOK AT HIM. He is that pretty. Oh god, and the second photo, with the, gulp, man bun? That is legit jerk-off material for me. I’m still disappointed in your friendship choices, Jared, but your beauty cannot be denied. [Flaunt]
The Oscars are this Sunday, and I don’t know about you, but I have been positively, absolutely salivating from the anticipation of finally finding out — no, not which film will win “Best Picture” — how Jared Leto will style his gorgeous head of cascading ombre man locks for the occasion. Having seen those strands in person, having touched them however briefly, I can confirm that his hair is as great as photos suggest. It’s glossy and has the perfect copper-y ends, but is also limp in that way that only man hair can be limp and sexy. SO ANNOYING. Basically, it’s perfect, down or up, though you know I ride hard for man buns.
Which is why I am positively verklempt to read what his ombre expert (duh, of course he has one) has planned for Academy Awards night. Given that Jared is practically a lock to take home the Best Supporting Actor trophy for his role in “Dallas Buyers Club,” the man formerly-but-forever-known-as Jordan Catalano has got to look like a winner. Chase Kusero told fashion and beauty blog Into The Gloss: Keep reading »
“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 »
