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]
“The fans are an incredibly committed and passionate group of people. Going to a show is kind of like visiting Japan, you expect gifts on your arrival. You get all kinds of wonderful things … Someone cut their ear off once and sent it to me, that was very strange. A whole ear. The Van Gogh move. The note just said, ‘Are you listening?’ I never knew who it was, who’s missing their ear out there … Just don’t put your entire body in a case and send it to us.”
– Jared Leto on the craziest gift he ever received from one of his fans. I believe you would call that ear mail. That poor person missing their ear in the name of Jared Leto. His fans sound more insane than the Beliebers. [NME]
“I got down to 116 or something … I just basically didn’t eat. I ate very little. I had done similar things with weight, but this was different. I think the role demanded that commitment … it was about how does that effect how I walk, how I talked, who I am, how I feel. You know, you feel very fragile and delicate and unsafe.”
– Jared Leto on losing 30 pounds for his role in “The Dallas Buyers Club.” I appreciate an actor immersing themselves in a role, but in my opinion, that’s taking it too far. That’s an eating disorder. Also, let’s talk about how a female celebrity would never make such a statement to the press for fear of being accused of having an eating disorder. She’d talk about her regimented diet and workout sessions under doctor supervision. [Just Jared]
Jared Leto told Twitter that when he hits 1 million twitter followers, he would get a tattoo. Well he did. And he did. He got this giant tattoo on his back. I’m still not convinced this isn’t a joke. But here it is. The photo was posted on his Instagram account and E! Online picked up the story. When the hell did Twitter get this important? Read more…
I think Jared Leto might be wearing a tiny bit of foundation. Just a little. But more importantly, where the fuck are his eyebrows? Can somebody get a GPS on this? It’s urgent.
Oh yes, that’s Jared Leto. The musician/actor/megadouche was spotted on the set of his upcoming film “The Dallas Buyers Club” (which also stars Matthew McConaughey and Jennifer Garner) all dolled up in drag for his role as a cross-dressing AIDS patient. Great set of legs, BTW. And he’s definitely committed to the role … check out a photo Jared posted to his Instagram, post-armpit wax, after the jump.
