Jared Leto’s performance as a transgender woman in Dallas Buyers Club won him the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor in 2014. A powerhouse of creativity, the young actor is also is lead vocalist and main songwriter for Thirty Seconds to Mars, playing multiple instruments in addition to singing.
Jared Leto’s band has sold over 10 million albums worldwide.
Would you also expect him to be a pretty complicated man? I would. Between the high level of creativity, the struggles of his childhood (including a father who committed suicide when Jared was eight) and, far as I can tell, Leto’s living far out-out-out-outside any LGBTQ closet.
