Jared Leto was spotted getting on a plane in Los Angeles yesterday afternoon, heading off to New Orleans where he’s filming ‘Dallas Buyers Club’. The actor plays a transsexual in the new film. Notice his fancy nails?
Jared has been mocking his transformation for the film, and took to Twitter to poke fun at Kanye West after he wore a leather skirt at the 12-12-12 Sandy benefit concert in New York on Wednesday.
He said: ‘I like a good man skirt! Ok I admit it. I let Kanye borrow my skirt.’
The 40-year-old actor and 30 Seconds To Mars singer has shed a drastic amount of weight for his role as an HIV-positive transvestite – much like his co-star Matthew McConaughey.
However, while Matthew has been on a slim-down mission for six months, the My So Called Life star has transformed his physique in little over a month after only recently getting involved in the project.
Jared has not been afraid to pontificate about how he has been suffering for his art, revealing he has essentially starved himself for the past month to play his character Rayon.
Talking about the weight loss, he said: ‘Your body goes through weird stages.
‘Sometimes it’s hard to hold on to water. But for me, it’s not about the most weight I can lose, it’s more to represent the character.
‘Historically, people have done it for pursuit of self, to achieve a meditative state, so I’m hoping for that. It’s not necessarily a bad thing.’
This movie needs to wrap SOON, before anyone gets hurt. It’s scary how small they are getting!!
